Tv Season Info

Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) enjoys his hard-earned retirement in Jacksonville, Florida, as part of his deal with Ruby (Lucy Lawless) for possession of the Necronomicon. But when Ruby loses control of the book and the demons she spawned with its power, Ash and his gang are forced to return to his hometown of Elk Grove, Michigan, where he gets a less than friendly reception from former friends and neighbors, to clean up Ruby's mess. Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo resume their roles as Pablo Bolivar and Kelly Maxwell, respectively. Joining the cast are Michelle Hurd as Ash's ex-girlfriend Linda Bates-Emery, Stephen Lovatt as Linda's husband Sheriff Thomas Emery, Lee Majors as Ash's dad Brock Williams, Ted Raimi as Ash's best friend Chet, and Joel Tobeck as Baal.

Critic Reviews for Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (4)

Considering the talent behind the show, not to mention its incomparable star, we have no doubt Ash vs. Evil Dead will remain a fun ride throughout Season 2. We're just hoping for a little more Ash and a little less Slash.

I'll be watching Ash vs. Evil Dead until the conclusion of this season.

Oct 31, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It has that perfect balance of ridiculously outlandish violent gore and terribly, terrible cheesy humor.

Jan 23, 2018 | Full Review…

What makes this series excellent is that it did all its character (re)establishing in the first series, allowing the second series to be a gleaming tribute to the Evil Dead Trilogy.

Oct 18, 2017 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Ash vs. Evil Dead season 2 isn't as screamingly good as season 1, but it sure gets close and is still one hell of a bloody good time.

Sep 19, 2016 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The second season, the tone and tenor of both its leading man-and the series-finds its rhythm and makes a case for an even stronger sophomore run. Like a fine wine, Ash Williams only gets better with age.

It's silly moments... - combined with all the horror and gore the Evil Dead movies are famous for - help Ash vs. Evil Dead stand out from its predecessors.

Oct 13, 2016 | Full Review…

From brawling in bars to cracking skulls at crematoriums, this exciting episode got Ash right tonally while also exploring his past in intriguing ways.

Oct 13, 2016 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

It is always fascinating to see a series learn new ways of telling a story as it moves on from its inaugural season.

Oct 3, 2016 | Full Review…

I'm not saying this isn't entertaining, nor out of line with Evil Dead's true nature. But what I am saying is that the show has more or less figured out its identity: a raunchier version of a Saturday morning action program for adults.

Oct 3, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

For those of us who take an admittedly odd comfort in watching our devils made flesh, dismembered and defeated, accepting Starz's invitation to ride with "Ash vs Evil Dead" may be the perfect weekly escape.

Oct 3, 2016 | Full Review…

The bloodthirsty violence and silly one-liners are fan service at both their finest and simplest, which ultimately hints that season 2 will be even bigger and groovier than before.

Audience Reviews for Ash vs Evil Dead: Season 2

  • May 25, 2019
    Perfect for any fan of the evil dead series. exactly what you'd expect really.
  • Jan 03, 2019
    Ramping up the gore, and fights from the first season, Ash vs. Evil Dead's second season is debatably better than it's first, and has solidified this show as one of the most unique, and best shows I have ever seen.
  • Dec 31, 2018
    Bruce Campbell's over the top personality is fun and camp. We need more people like him in the world!
  • Dec 17, 2018
    Surprisingly good second season.
  • Oct 30, 2018
    Incredible. The humor flowed so perfectly with Army of Darkness. It felt like a real continuation of the evil dead universe. The cast did an amazing job, and I was really glad that they brought in people I hadn't seen before to be main characters. It really helped me connect with them in their roles. The practical effects were excellent, and the CG was present but not overly present. Just in general it's a masterpiece.

    it wAs an amazing season with another great cast and with one of the best episodes ever (episode 7) which makes the viewer question wether ash is actually insane. AlthOugh not as good as the First season
  • May 04, 2018
    As much as I hate to say was not as good as season 1 but was still funny scary and had some great guests on the show such as ted raimi lee majors and ellen sandweiss plus an awesome car vs chainsaw fight!>
  • May 01, 2018
    What an amazing gore fest! Fun, crazy, wild and knows no boundaries! Best aspect of the show? it does not take itself to seriously, allowing to balace perfecty dark humour with lively characters and a sense of horror.
  • Apr 15, 2018
    Almost as good as the first season, the episode in the asylum dragged a little.
  • Apr 02, 2018
    Maybe not quite as good as season 1 but still a great and worthy successor to the namesake and an extremely fun show.
