The trailer shows that the new series will stay true to Ripley’s strange and unusual roots, with new, modern stories of fantastical people, places, and things.

Campbell responded to the news in the way everyone expected: with a joke.

The actor is best known for his role as Ash Williams in Sam Raimi’s “Evil Dead” films, and is fresh off the end of his Showtime series “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” which earned a haunted house during Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights 2017.
