By now I'm sure the word has gotten around about the [Evil Dead TV Show](series:2145896) that is being developed, but if you haven't heard, this is something that needs to be known! It was first announced at a panel at SDCC 2014 on July 25th by Raimi himself. Few details were revealed except for the fact that Raimi, his brother, and Bruce Campbell would be writing it and were currently doing just that. This news alone is enough to have most of us feeling like...well...how should I put this...ummm...
What's really exciting, is the news that broke a few days later. It's what everyone was thinking and hoping and Campbell has seemed to confirm it in this conversation on twitter.
I for one think this is what would make the series a real success. I love The Evil Dead and could easily call it my favorite franchise, and even with that being said and how much i even loved the "remake" I think we could all use a little more of this in our Evil Dead.
So far there is no news on the channel that will be hosting this but AMC or FX could be the most likely contenders since they already are known to push the boundaries of what can be shown on cable (because we know Evil Dead couldn't cut it on a regular network channel) but a premium channel like HBO seems possible too.
I only hope that the show makes it through production and to air. I'm sure everyone remembers Raimi and Campbell talking about [Army of Darkness 2](movie:885045) and then a week later saying they never planned to do it. That project is still up in the air but this series seems like something that's going to be made.
