New show. Same ride.

Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi, and Lucy Lawless are heading to Comic-Con to promote the return of the Evil Dead franchise with the Ash Vs. Evil Dead Starz series. After their presentation of the first full-length trailer, they’ll be releasing it into the wild on Friday.

In the meantime, Campbell is teasing us with a look at Ash’s ride, the 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 that has appeared in every film in the franchise (as well every one of Raimi’s films).

The show synopsis:

Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.

The first season will consist of 10 half-hour episodes and is executive-produced by Campbell, Craig DiGregorio, Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, with DiGregorio as showrunner. The show is currently in production in New Zealand, and is set to premiere in the fall.
