In 1981, Bruce Campbell burst onto the scene as Ashley "Ash" J. Williams in Sam Raimi's "The Evil Dead."

In 1987, he returned as a more heightened version of the character, and to drive the point home he added a chainsaw in place of his arm.

In 1993, he battled Deadites in the Middle Ages in "Army of Darkness."

And now...and now. He is back, 22 years later, on...the Starz network.

Witness the return of Ash in the new "Ash vs. Evil Dead" teaser above. The 10-episode series, which was co-created by Campbell and Raimi, is slated to premiere later this year.
