This news broke three days ago so you may well already know this, but it’s now official – Ash vs. Evil Dead has been cancelled, something that will probably come as no surprise to many ever since star Bruce Campbell mentioned several months ago that the Season 3 finale intentionally operates as a ‘series’ finale in case Starz decided to cancel. And now they’ve made that decision, no doubt chiefly due to seriously dwindling viewing figures. Tweeted Campbell:
“Ash vs. Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime. Ash Williams was the role 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. I will always be grateful to Starz for the opportunity to revisit the franchise that launched our careers.”
Sad news indeed, but at least the series seems like it will have a terrific finale.
