Despite it not coming out until February next year, Ash Vs Evil Dead appeared in force at New York Comic Con to show off glimpses of the season and talk about major plot points. Of the major ones will be the inclusion of a daughter for Ash named Brandy, a daughter he didn’t know he had. Also, Ash’s father will come back in ghost form. Star Bruce Campbell noted that this season will change a lot of things, and really dive into the continuity of the universe:
“The goal of this season is to crack it open, to crack the shell open. We’re doing a little more into the Joseph Campbell mythology. Because Ash is not just a loser who lives in a trailer park; he is foretold in an ancient book. So why? Why him?”
In fact, the show is apparently going to be very different after the end of this seasons:
“I’ll allude to the ending of the season, in that everything will be different. Really different. Really, really different. You’re gonna f**king pick your jaw up off the floor at the end of this season. And I wish I could tell you because I would love to see your jaws drop right now. But no. Download the app and watch it yourselves.”
Oh, and if you’re looking for the “gross factor”?
“I had a fight in a sperm bank this season. I’m…pretty much just going to end it right there.” notes Campbell
Ash Vs Evil Dead returns to Starz on February 25th.
