Check out the photo revealing the demon Baal (played by Joel Tobeck) is added to the roster of Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 villains. Season 2 will premiere on October 2, 2016. We have a long wait, but we rest assured that the Starz Network, Sam Raimi, and Bruce Campbell will keep feeding us promo material until then.
Press Release: Hell has come to earth as Starz gives a sneak peek of the character Baal, played by Joel Tobeck ("Sons of Anarchy," The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) who appears in season two of the series. When Baal is released from the underworld, our team will face an enemy more powerful then then any that have come before. One with bigger plans than just destroying Ash as well as a secret link to Ruby (Lucy Lawless). It was recently announced that Season 2 will premiere Sunday, October 2 at 8:00PM ET.
Baal rounds out a cast led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, "Burn Notice") in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless ("Salem," "Spartacus") as Ruby, who now possesses the powerful Necronomicon; Ray Santiago ("Touch," Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash’s loyal sidekick dealing with the trauma he suffered in the cabin; and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, who, grief-stricken after the death of her parents, plots revenge against The Evil Dead. Lee Majors ("The Six Million Dollar Man"), Ted Raimi ("Xena: Warrior Princess," Spider-Man) and Michelle Hurd ("Law & Order: SVU") join the cast this year as Brock Williams, Ash’s father, Chet Kaminski, Ash’s childhood best friend, and Linda, Ash’s high school love respectively.
Sam Raimi serves as executive producer with Rob Tapert (Evil Dead, "Spartacus," Xena: Warrior Princess"), Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, "Burn Notice") and Ivan Raimi (Drag Me To Hell, Spider-Man 3) along with Craig DiGregorio ("Workaholics," "Chuck") who serves as executive producer/showrunner. Aaron Lam ("Spartacus") and Moira Grant ("Spartacus") serve as producers.
