I cannot wait to see Starz’s Ash vs. Evil Dead and every new piece of news I eat it up. Mimi Rogers (Mad Men, Ginger Snaps, Lost in Space (1998)) joined the cast and will play the mother of Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) named Suzy Maxwell. Details on Mimi’s character is that she is “a woman who is reunited with her family and several uninvited guests after a freak accident.” Production has already started in New Zealand with Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell attached as executive producers. Sam Raimi will also be directing the first episode which he co-wrote with Ivan Raimi. I cannot wait to see the premiere this upcoming Fall 2015 with Bruce Campbell returning to the Evil Dead franchise as Ash Williams once again. Also starring in Starz’s Ash vs. Evil Dead are Lucy Lawless (Salem, Spartacus), Ray Santiago (Touch, Meet the Fockers), Dana DeLorenzo and Jill Marie Jones.
