Season 1 of Ash vs Evil Dead was a literal bloodbath week in and week out. The Starz horror comedy never fell short on finding gruesomely creative ways to kill off people and deadites alike. The renewal for Season 2 meant that we were certainly in for more crazy kills in the next batch of episodes. According to star Bruce Campbell, one Season 2 death is especially insane. Here's what Campbell has to say about the upcoming standout:
There's an episode that's basically around the Delta. It's a pretty interesting episode, with perhaps the worst onscreen death in the history of all visual arts. 'Worst' meaning 'most outrageous.' Like, 'Am I really watching this happening? Am I really watching this unfold in front of me?'
Bruce Campbell shared his thoughts on the death that will coincide with the return of Ash's iconic 1973 Delta 88 car in a chat with EW, and my curiosity is certainly piqued. I definitely had a few moments of "Am I really watching this?" and "Is this really happening?" in Season 1 - particularly when that one ugly bugger exploded into mouthwash - but I was desensitized enough by the end that no amount of blood could throw me off. Bruce Campbell himself calling anything "the worst onscreen death in the history of all visual arts" is a pretty definitive sign that minds are going to be blown by however the death happens.
Still, it's hard to imagine a death that could be so much more bonkers than what happened on Ash vs Evil Dead in Season 1. So many people died in so many ways that the crew must have struggled at least a little bit to outdo themselves for Season 2. After all, the series got off to a bloody start and only got bloodier as the episodes passed. But this is one creative team that's used to bloody challenges. Check out the video below of all the deaths from Ash vs Evil Dead Season 1 for a refresher on the craziness that has already happened on the series:
Of course, Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 isn't going to be all blood and gore. The incorporation of the Delta's backstory is only one way that Ash vs Evil Dead will be expanding on Ash's character. The second season will delve into his past and the hometown where he lived before he went to that fateful Evil Dead cabin in the woods. He had friends and family who will show up in certain episodes of Season 2 to show more about what made him the way that he is. Lee Majors is on board to play Ash's stubborn dad in a positively perfect bit of casting, and Ted Raimi will play one of Ash's childhood pals. Hopefully for Ash's sake, neither his dad or his old BFF will be the victim of the outrageous death.
Ash vs Evil Dead returns to Starz for Season 2 this October. Take a look at our fall TV premiere schedule to see what non-bloody shows you'll be able to catch on the small screen in the not-too-distant future.
