Here’s Your First Look at Bruce Campbell in ‘Ash Vs Evil Dead’ (PHOTO)

Bruce Campbell is back to kick some deadite ash (yeah, we went there) in the brand new Starz series Ash Vs Evil Dead.

Entertainment Weekly revealed the first photo of the actor — chainsaw and all — returning to the role he originated in 1981’s The Evil Dead.

Campbell’s most recent turn as Ash was in Army of Darkness in 1992, unless you count his brief cameo after the credits in the 2013 Evil Dead film.

We must say, the blood-splattered actor looks great, even without his trusty boomstick.

Said Campbell of his return, “I’m relegated a little bit into the John Wayne mode these days with my team—the young, virile, evil fighters who will pair up with Ash and take on this nemesis: this never ending, ever evolving nemesis.”

You can catch Campbell in the 10-episode revival of the Evil Dead franchise on Starz in the fall.
