Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3

You know you’re about to see something crazy when Bruce Campbell comes out on stage wearing a Hugh Hefner-like pimp suit. That was just the first of many amazing surprises in store for us at the Ash vs Evil Dead panel Saturday afternoon at New York Comic-Con.

There was already an air of anticipation in the Hammerstein Ballroom in the moments leading up to the cast’s entrance on stage. But luckily we didn’t have to stare at a blank screen or listen to a hype man try to pump up the crowd. On the screen in an endless loop was a vintage clip of a bobcat mascot in a high school hallway staring menacingly at the camera from a distance. Then in the next moment, there’s a jump cut with the mascot much closer to the camera. This time it had blood streaming from its eye sockets. Just like that, the audience was hooked. And it wasn’t even time for the panel yet. This was idle time!

Ascendant TV Series

Despite making it three films into a franchise, the Divergent book series will no longer be adapted for the big screen. Instead, the series will continue on cable with Starz developing the TV series version of Ascendant, the final chapter of the series based on Veronica Roth‘s book series.

The biggest question fans probably have is who from the Divergent film franchise will be returning to take a role in the series, and the bad news is that most of them probably won’t. But at the very least, the filmmakers hired to write and direct the final installment of the Divergent series will be involved in the show. Find out more about the Ascendant TV series below.
