Make sure your chainsaw has enough gas and start working on your one-liners, because Ash vs Evil Dead is returning to STARZ for a third season this February.

STARZ announced the February 25th, 2018 premiere date for Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 on Facebook, along with new key art featuring horror in the high school halls.

According to Deadline, this is the synopsis for the third season: "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."

Bruce Campbell will return as the boomstick king, Ash, and he will also executive produce with Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi, the director of the original Evil Dead film franchise. Also reprising their roles from the first two seasons are Lucy Lawless, Ray Santiago, and Dana DeLorenzo.

As previously reported, Arielle Carver O'Neill has joined the season three cast as high schooler Brandy Barr, although we now know that the character is the "long-lost daughter" of Ash.

There is no trailer for season 3 yet, but we'll keep you updated as more Deadite details are revealed. Are you looking forward to season 3?
