Lee Majors (The Fall Guy, Do You Believe) will play Brock Williams — Ash’s father — in Ash vs Evil Dead, Starz announced today. Renewed for a second season back in October, Ash vs Evil Dead will also bring in Ted Raimi as Ash’s childhood best friend, Chet Kaminski.

It’ll be Majors’ first appearance in an Evil Dead title, but the same isn’t so for Raimi. He’s appeared in all three of the original Evil Dead films.
Ash vs Evil Dead’s first season ended in early January, and is set to return for its second season in 2016. The show was a hit, and one season just wan’t enough to “satisfy the fans’ two decade-long appetite for more Ash,” Starz managing director Carmi Slotnik said in October.
