I was expecting Ash vs Evil Dead to be a good show since Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi weren’t going to flop adapting their chainsaw arm hero to the small screen. But the show exceeded expectations for an addicting experience. The show became a hit for Starz and was able to get a second season. Things open up with Ash living his dream life in Jacksonville, Florida. But someone has to spoil the fun and Ash must return to saving humanity. But he’s not alone. Now we get to see his father and it’s a casting coup. The Blu-ray for season 2 comes out August 22. Here’s the press release from Lionsgate:
Hail to the King as “Ash vs Evil Dead”: Season 2
Slices its Way to Blu-rayTM and DVD August 22 from Lionsgate
SANTA MONICA, CA (June 12, 2017) – Evil just can’t catch a break as the hilarious, critically acclaimed horror series “Ash vs Evil Dead”: Season 2 arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD August 22 from Lionsgate. Locked and loaded with the same twisted humor and gory kill scenes groovy fans of the franchise are used to, “Ash vs Evil Dead”: Season 2 continues the chainsaw-slicing, shotgun-blasting fun from the first season. “Ash vs Evil Dead”: Season 2 stars Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead franchise), Lucy Lawless (TV’s “Spartacus: War of the Damned”), Ray Santiago (In Time), and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas), as well as this season’s introduction of Lee Majors (TV’s “The Six Million Dollar Man”) as Ash’s father.
This season roars back into action with Ash leaving his beloved Jacksonville and returning to his home town of Elk Grove. There, he confronts Ruby, only to find that she too is now a victim of evil and in need of Ash’s help. The former enemies have to form an uneasy alliance to give them a chance of success as Elk Grove soon becomes the nucleus of evil.
The home entertainment release of “Ash vs Evil Dead”: Season 2 includes audio commentaries, eight behind-the-scenes featurettes, and a “Fatality Mash-Up.” “Ash vs Evil Dead”: Season 2 will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for the suggested retail price of $43.99 and $34.98, respectively.
