Starz has big plans for making “obsessable” content, and the premium network revealed some of them Monday. In addition to announcing the premiere dates of the second seasons of both Ash vs Evil Dead and Blunt Talk, Starz shared that it is developing three new series: Dirty Girls Social Club, Pussy Valley, and Teresa. The premium network is also currently working on a superhero series with 50 Cent, reports Variety.

The Ash vs Evil Dead and Blunt Talk announcement came during Starz’ Television Critics Association presentation Monday. The premium network revealed that the two series will premiere back-to-back on October 2. Ash vs Evil Dead will come first, starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The episode will be extended, which means that Blunt Talk will be pushed back to 8:35 p.m., according to Variety. It’s sure to be a night of blood, gore, and profanity.

While fans will be excited to see favorites return, there is clearly a lot more in the works. Starz has added a yearlong extension to its overall deal with Curtis Jackson (better known as 50 Cent). The deal now runs through September 2018 and has the rapper-slash-producer developing more projects for the premium network. Through the deal, 50 Cent currently serves as a producer on Power. The critically acclaimed Starz series is in the midst of its third season and has already been renewed for two more.

On top of his work on Power, 50 Cent is developing Tomorrow, Today, a superhero series based on a screenplay he wrote. The story centers on a veteran from Chicago’s South Side who ends up being experimented on by an unstable prison doctor. With his enhanced abilities, he ends up on the run but trying to do some good.

50 Cent promised fans a “big” series when he tweeted out a message after the news broke.

The network’s other projects include Dirty Girls Social Club, which is based on a novel by Alisa Valdes. The series focuses on six women, friends since college, who are living and working in New York City. Meanwhile, Pussy Valley follows fictional pole dancers working in a club called the Pink Pony. Teresa, on the other hand, is based on a Mexican telenovela and centers on a young Latina trying to pursue money and power among Los Angeles’ elite.

Given how many streaming and subscription options are out there, streamers and premium networks have to be able to win over fans with quality content. With its upcoming series, Starz looks poised to keep doing just that.
