- For anyone who has been hoping for the upcoming Starz series Ash vs Evil Dead to make a Comic-Con appearance — you might just be in luck. Star Bruce Campbell mentioned on Twitter that he will be at the convention, and that he might have a “special treat” with him. He then tagged the series, so it sounds like we’re in for some sort of appearance. Whether it’s a panel, an offsite screening, or a combination — well, that’s anyone’s guess.
Hell yes, you will! Might have a special treat with me. #AshVsEvilDead
