They are gonna show Ravan's devotion for Shiva.I don't think he will be shown negative.
As far as Mahadev goes, Ravan did not do anything to qualify himself as a villain. While he was on his conquests, he decided to uproot Mt Kailash, and when he did, even Parvati was shaken. Mahadev then pressed his weight on the mountain, almost squishing Ravan
The latter started singing praises of Mahadev, who was pacified and let go, allowing him to put back the mountain. He then gave him the Chandrahaas kharg as a reward.
Yeah, in the bigger story, Ravan was a villain. But not in Mahadev's story - there, he was no more a villain than Kamadev was a villain. He just disturbed Mahadev temporarily, his pride got humbled and he learnt his lesson and never bothered Mahadev again. In fact, he became a Shiva bhakt. So if any Shiva centric serial were to show him, Ravan's role should end once he gets the Chandrahaas. After that, his story is no longer a part of Shiva's.
Of course, since this serial loves twisting things to suck up to Vishnu, I wouldn't be surprised if they showed Ravan as a villain in the context of the entire Ramayan. But seriously, we have had enough Ramayans on TV to last a lifetime, and don't need another. Hope that Ravan's appearance, when it happens, is just a cameo appearance like it's supposed to be.
The next demon that Shiva would be killing - and yeah, this was a tyrannical demon - would be I think Bhimasura - son of Kumbhakarna & Karkati. They showed his birth a bit in the AS Ramayan. The story of him is that he grew up, propriated Brahma and got a boon that he'd defeat Vishnu. This happened long after Rama's passing, and so since Vishnu was defeated, he did 'avenge' the death of his father & uncles. That's where he should have stopped, but he continued to persecute other kings, including one who was a Shiva bhakt, and so Mahadev himself fought & killed him.
After that would be the story of Banasura. These are all the asuras I know, as far as Mahadev is involved.
