Starz Cancels Ash vs. Evil Dead After Three Seasons


Evil Dead is one of the longest-running and consistently entertaining horror franchises out there, and while the news that its latest chapter has come to the close is certainly sad, it's not quite unexpected. "Evil Dead" has been canceled at Starz, Variety has confirmed. Following the announcement of the cancellation, Campbell shared his gratitude for the series' creators, fans, and network. "We are proud to send the show out with a bang...and a splat". Ash Williams was the role of a lifetime.

"Ash vs Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime ..." It was an honor to reunite with Evil Dead partners Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi to give our tireless fans another taste of the outrageous horror/comedy they demanded. Season 3 finale on April 29 has been set to serve as the series finale.

The actor also posted a similarly worded statement on Twitter.

Alas, the journey of Ash vs. It definitely still feels like there are a number of different avenues that can be taken to either make this franchise work elsewhere or to just do something similar with the same sort of people on board. Evil Dead significantly dropped in the third season with an average of 177,000 viewers per episode according to ShowBuzzDaily.

In the premiere of the third season, Campbell revealed that the team would probably be willing to get back to the film franchise. You can keep up with our remaining Ash vs Evil Dead coverage (and see why we've been so insane about it this year) right here. We're ready either way. They'll battle a global demon infestation whose epicenter is Elk Grove.

Bruce Campbell has recently said that when Ash vs Evil Dead ends, that will be the last we see of Ashley J. Williams, the role that made Bruce a cult favorite.
