Via a story on The Verge this afternoon, cable channel Starz will be airing a 10-episode Evil Dead series that will be a direct sequel to the original trilogy of films, and will see the return of geek-icon Bruce Campbell as Ash.

The STARZ Original series officially titled “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” will be 10 half-hour episodes. Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip…

I have to say that, in many ways, I’m more excited about this than I am about the continuing Star Wars saga.
