While we don't know the exact premiere date for the return of Ash vs Evil Dead, the third season of the Starz series is already starting to shape up, as a new cast member has been revealed.

Deadline reports that Arielle Carver-O’Neill has joined the cast of Ash vs Evil Dead as a series regular to play "...Brandy, a smart middle-class American high school senior whose life is up-ended when she finds herself caught up in violent demonic events."

O'Neill, who previously appeared in House Husbands, Suburbs, and the Spierig Brothers' Predestination, joins a core season 3 cast that is expected to include Bruce Campbell, Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo, and Lucy Lawless. While no seasons beyond the third one have been announced, Campbell told us in our interview last year that he'd like to do five seasons of Ash vs Evil Dead:

"I'll take five [seasons]. No one's gonna burn out at five. I got this a lot, "Hey, so Burn Notice ran, like, five seasons right?" I'm like, “No, it ran seven.” They were like, "Oh, oh." And what it really meant was they stopped watching after five. And every shows has a burnout factor. The cast burns out, the show gets too expensive, writers run out of ideas, viewership declines. Every show has its arc.

We want to end strong, and I want to put together a multiple year plan so that the writers know where this is going, the actors know where it's going, and the studio knows where it's going. Everyone should know where everything is going all the time, in my opinion."

Official plot details for the third season of Ash vs Evil Dead have not yet been revealed, but we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more information is announced.

    First thing I am a HUGE Evil Dead fan however ….

    The series has sucked balls and I am not afraid to say it the Unnecessary Music placement will make it difficult to do a fan edit for sure the ending of Season two was putrid. Dana DeLorenzo acting is piss poor The spiritual sequence scene was horrid and should have not been put in there at all. The only few good things I can say about this shitty ass series is

    1. Going back to the cabin ( Cabin scenes )

    2. Henrietta’s return
    3. Cheryl’s return
    4. Chett
    5. The Asylum scene and too be honest this how the series should have started Ash being in an Asylum not fucking a whore in a bar.
    6. Ash’s Dad
    7. Baal
    8. Amy Fisher
    9. Linda’s Return

    As much as I want to see a true Evil Dead 4 or even a Evil Dead Remake crossover with Ash passing the torch to Mia let this shit rest it is ruining the franchise for myself and a lot of people. For the people who love this crappy shit go back and watch the first two movies then watch this and hopefully you will open your eyes and see what garbage this shit really is.

    I’d love to see Renee O’Connor on season 3 with Lucy Lawless… Hopefully!

    As a fan of this series for over twenty years I feel very confident in saying that I love this show! So far the only thing that I really didn’t like was the whole Ash’s head up the corpse’s ass thing, I felt that was a bit too… Stupid? But that said; this series has for the most part been pretty stupid except for the first once. Watch Evil Dead 2 or Army of Darkness and tell me again that this doesn’t fit right in there. Sam Raimi has always been a big fan of The Three Stooges and slapstick and it shows throughout his career, there’s always been an element of pure goof. Now, I would admit it if I hated this, I’m not a blind fanboy by any means. And what’s this boohooing over fan edits? Make your own movies instead, it’s a lot more fulfilling. And and (!) who the hell is Amy Fisher?
