It's been 22 years since Bruce Campbell has valiantly fought against the deadites — and now he's back playing the ever-groovy character Ash!
The 57-year-old is set to star in Starz's revival of the Evil Dead franchise this fall in Ash vs Evil Dead!
The 10 episode resurrection picks up with Ash, still a stock boy, who once again accidentally unleashes the evil dead upon the world! Ash enlists the help of his Value Stop co-workers Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana Delorenzo) to defeat the evil dead (above)!

Sam Raimi, who directed the films along with the series's first episode, explained that Ash wouldn't go easy on the deadites, saying:
