Ash is back — and he's bloodier than ever.

In the upcoming Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead, Bruce Campbell reprises his role from the film series as the chainsaw-handed monster hunter who's battling an all-new Deadite threat to humanity. He's joined in the cast by Lucy Lawless, who plays Ruby, a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the evil outbreaks.

Ray Santiago is Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash's loyal sidekick; Dana DeLorenzo is Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past; and Jill Marie Jones is Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper determined to find Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner.
