Ash vs. Evil Dead Not to Rise for Fourth Season

According to Variety, the Starz television series Ash vs. Evil Dead has been canceled after three seasons. Ash vs. Evil Dead starred Bruce Campbell as the eponymous Ash Williams, Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly, and Lucy Lawless as Ruby.

Ash vs. Evil Dead was a television series based on the cult classic Evil Dead franchise also starring Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams.

Campbell has said multiple things about the future of Ash Williams after Ash vs. Evil DeadWhen asked at the Irish Film Institute if he’d star in another Evil Dead film, he said”No, no, no. Because if they cancel [Ash vs. Evil Dead], I think Ash is done. I have lavender on my property. I’m going to smoke weed and hang out.” This conflicts with an earlier statement where Campbell claimed that the character would have a future beyond the television show.  When asked Will the Evil Dead franchise return to the big screen anytime soon?” he answered We’re going to see what the TV gods have in store for us. We’re ready either way. If they take us off the air, we can think about another movie. And if they don’t, we can just keep plugging away.

Unfortunately for fans, it looks like Campbell may actually be leaving the character behind.

Bruce Campbell posted a picture on Twitter where he said goodbye to the character that he’s inhabited on and off for over thirty years.

The penultimate episode of Ash vs. Evil Dead will air this Sunday, 22 April 2018. The season (and now series) finale will air on Sunday 29 April 2018.
