Actor Bruce Campbell is reprising his role in classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead with a new Tv series.

Campbell will step back into his role of cult hero Ash Williams in a 10-episode series for U.S. network Starz called Ash vs. Evil Dead.

Franchise writer/director Sam Raimi will return to helm the first episode and also serve as a producer alongside Campbell.

A statement from Raimi reads, "Evil Dead has always been a blast. Bruce, (producer) Rob (Tapert) and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to tell the next chapter in Ash's lame, but heroic saga. With his chainsaw arm and his 'boomstick,' Ash is back to kick some monster butt. And brother, this time there's a truckload of it."

Ash vs. Evil Dead is expected to premiere in 2015.
