Ash vs. Evil Dead returns to our screens later this year for a brand new season of Evil Dead-killin’ action. You can expect gore and splatter galore when we catch up with Deadite slayer supreme Ash and his two pals Pablo and Kelly living the high life in Jacksonville. Trading in the Necronomicon for gas money to a life-long spring break seemed like the answer to Ash’s prayers, as the season one finale showed the trio bound for sunny Florida in his clapped-out Oldsmobile.
But this is Ash Williams, the man who re-summoned an ancient evil while trying to impress a woman. It’s not long before the Dead come a’knockin’ and we’ve now got a first look at the sophomore season’s new antagonist Baal, played by Sons of Anarchy alum Joel Tobeck.
According to Starz, Baal is released from the Underworld, which was split open during Ruby’s antics, and is described as “an enemy more powerful than any that have come before… one with bigger plans than just destroying Ash as well as a secret link to Ruby.” Sounds to me like his sights on set on world domination. If Ruby’s intentions were to control the world’s evil by setting it loose and keeping it under her command, then it’s likely that Baal is refusing to be kept on a leash.
We’ll find out either way when Ash vs. Evil Dead returns on October 2.
