Ash Williams is getting a father and a childhood best friend during Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 Starz announced today.
Lee Majors has been tapped to take on the challenging role of Brock Williams, Ash's father. Majors is known on television from his roles on The Big Valley, The Six Million Dollar Man and Fall Guy.
He'll need all of the skills he learned on those series to deal with the likes of Bruce Campbell as Ash in a fatherly manner!
Ted Raimi appeared in all three of the Evil Dead movies, so having him back on the series will be a blast from the past as Ash's best friend, Chet Kaminski.
Additionally, he's been seen in Supernatural, Twin Peaks and Xena: Warrior Princess, so he'll be having reunions with both Campbell and Lucy Lawless, who plays Ruby on the series.
In addition to Campbell, Lawless, Majors and Raimi, Ray Santiago will return as Pablo, dealing with trauma dealt during his time in the cabin and Dana DeLorenzo will return as Kelly, who will plot revenge against the Evil Dead for the grief she's suffered at their hands.
One thing we know, it will be some of the shortest 30 minute segments of the year for the 10-episode run of Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2!
The series will return to Starz later in 2016.
