Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell working on Evil Dead TV series

Evil Dead 2 Ash 1

Director Sam Raimi, and star of the movies Bruce Campbell, announced they're working on a TV series of the cult horror classic.

The Evil Dead, released in 1981, is a cult classic in the horror genre. It’s spawned two sequels and a remake in 2013, and now it will return as a TV series.

During San Diego Comic Con last weekend Sam Raimi, who wrote and directed all of the movies, bar the 2013 remake, announced that The Evil Dead will be hitting the small screen.

Bruce Campbell who starred in the first three movies, and made an appearance at the end of the remake, also tweeted a fan to confirm the plan is for him to star in the show;

 

I’m certainly excited about this news, as the original The Evil Dead from 1981 is one of my favourite movies. We’ll bring you more details about TV series when they’re revealed. Thanks, Den of Geek.

 

 

So The Evil Dead TV series is to be a thing… Are you excited about the news?
