Lee Majors and Ted Raimi

The cast of season two of Ash vs Evil Dead has expanded by two. Lee Majors and Ted Raimi have signed on to play key characters in the second season of the horror comedy. According to the official announcement, Majors will play Ash’s father, Brock Williams. Raimi has appeared in all of the Evil Dead movies and is set to take on the role of Ash’s BFF, Chet Kaminski.

Season two will consist of 10 half-hour episodes that will air later this year. Majors and Raimi join a cast that is led by Bruce Campbell as Ash and includes Lucy Lawless as Ruby, Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, and Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell. Campbell, Sam Raimi, Craig DiGregorio and Rob Tapert are the executive producers.

DiGregorio will once again serve as the showrunner, and Spartacus‘ Aaron Lam and Moira Grant are the producers.

The Plot of Season One:

Bruce Campbell reprises his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from “Evil’s” grip.
