Evil Dead is finding new life on the small screen.

On Monday, the cable network Starz announced a new series, Ash vs. Evil Dead, a spin-off of the Sam Raimi movie series that will find actor Bruce Campbell reprising his role as Ash Williams, the New York Times reports.

The 10-episode series is expected next year.

Raimi, who went on to direct the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy, will direct the first episode of the series, which he wrote with his brother, Ivan Raimi. The first Evil Dead movie, considered a cult classic, dates back to 1981.
