Sad news to report for horror fans today. According to
Evil Dead reboot star Jane Levy, the sequel Evil Dead 2 may never happen. At least, not anytime soon.
Even before last year\'s well received Evil Dead remake hit theaters, director Fede Alvarez claimed that Evil Dead 2 was on the fast track. Around this same time, director of the original 1981 The Evil Dead, Sam Raimi claimed he was making his own franchise sequel titled Army of Darkness 2, a follow up to the third installment, 1993\'s Army Of Darkness. The end of the Evil Dead remake even set up a future clash between cult icon Bruce Campbell as Ash, and new horror heroine Mia, played by Jane Levy.
But in a shocking twist, Sam Raimi announced at this year\'s Comic-Con that he and his brother Ted Raimi are developing an Evil Dead TV series, with Bruce Campbell to star. According to Jane Levy, this new incarnation of the franchise may be replacing any of the upcoming sequels that were previously planned. Though she doesn\'t know that for a fact.
Speaking with Arrow in the Head, Jane Levy shared these thoughts on why she thinks Evil Dead 2 will never happen.
"I don\'t think they\'re gonna make it. I mean, they\'re always coming up with a new thing- now I hear they\'re making a TV show. I was like, what? [Laughs] I think they just like exciting their fans and confusing them. I honestly don\'t know, but it doesn\'t seem like there\'s going to be an Evil Dead 2 anytime soon. At least, not with me in it."
It is possible that Evil Dead 2 is still being planned, just without Mia as the lead character. Its also possible that Mia and Ash could have their ultimate showdown on the small screen, but it remains to be seen if Jane Levy is up for reprising Mia solely for TV. We\'ll have to wait and see.

If an Evil Dead tv series fares well like other popular shows (Walking Dead...), I might watch. Not a fan of any of those popular shows, but with Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi, I could finally find one I might like. Could be interesting if it\'s a mix of the Army Of Darkness 2 concept and eventually brings Ash and Mia together, tying it all together. As long as it keeps the same vibe as Evil Dead captured.
Not surprised they cancel a decent remake to put Evil Dead on TV. I rather see Evil Dead in theatres instead.
They passed on Zombieland 2 to make it a series and look how that turned out. Hopefully this won\'t suffer the same fate.
