Just days after Starz announced the Season 3 premiere date for Ash vs Evil Dead, fans have been given the first look into the new gore-tastic installment. The photos indicate another bloody good time for Ash, Pablo and Kelly while they defend the world from evil — and they have some new members on their crew.
Here's the official plot synopsis for the third season premiering on Starz this February:
“The third season finds Ash’s status in Elk Grove, Michigan has changed from murderous urban legend to humanity-saving hometown hero. When Kelly witnesses a televised massacre with Ruby’s fingerprints all over it, she returns with a new friend to warn Ash and Pablo that evil isn’t done with them yet. Blood is thicker than water in the battle of good vs Evil Dead!”
The first image gives fans a closer look at the alternate Ruby spreading her evil after killing present-day Ruby and escaping banishment at the end of last season. This Ruby looks to be the newest adversary and leader of the demon world.
The loss of present-day Ruby will put the group at a noticeable disadvantage without her strength and knowledge of the Deadite manifestation. We see quite a few victims in that barn — is alternate Ruby looking for crucial information? Maybe about a specific family member of Ash?
