“Ash vs. Evil Dead” Season 3 Will Explain Why Ash is the Chosen One

Filming on the third season of “Ash vs. Evil Dead” wrapped this past June, and Bruce Campbell has been teasing that the new episodes are going to be nothing short of a game-changer for the franchise. He promises that “nothing will ever be the same” after the finale, which has certainly whet our appetite.

Of course, we don’t yet have any idea what he’s referring to, but Campbell has been dropping little tidbits here and there. We won’t spoil it for those who don’t want to know, but he recently revealed a major detail that may or may not have something to do with the shocker of a finale.

What else can we expect from the forthcoming third season? Speaking with Dread Central this week, Campbell noted that Ash’s origins as a hero will be explored. As Ash learned in the original trilogy, he was depicted as the chosen one in the Book of the Dead, always destined to save the Earth from the Deadites.

But why?

The mythology’s going to kick in now, which will give us all an idea of why Ash was chosen – this average idiot… this fool was written of in an ancient book,” Campbell teased. “So Season 3 is where it all will come to a head – the ultimate mettle of the average man will be tested by these demonic forces, and if man fails, then evil will rule the earth – those are the stakes.”

“Ash vs. Evil Dead” Season 3 will either premiere this Fall or early 2018.

    I wonder if it’s going to turn out that Ash is actually from a long line of “monster slayers” – it’s in the blood – perhaps his ol’ man was going to tell him this before, well, splat.

    I have a feeling that this will be the last Ash vs Evil Dead season and that sucks.

      Why? It’s been a hit for STARZ so far, and they’re aiming for 5 seasons.

        ratings dropped majorly from Season 1 to 2

      I think something is up too. Not a single word from Starz about a Season 3 premier date. It’s like they are trying to sweep it under the rug.

    Well…Wasn’t it confirmed as soon as S2 ended though? I’m certain I’ve heard a long time ago that this season would answer some major questions about Ash.

    I do hope both Pablo and Kelly will get some backstory as well however! They got a lot of things to do in S2 of course, but we know fairly little about who they are and who they used to be.

    Oh and, some more Brock maybe? If he is indeed a supernatural being, I’m sure he could finally tell Ash what he’s been trying to say…

      Brock should be in it, due the the ending of season 2

      ******SPOILER ALERT*******

      basically resetting the series – or so it seems – so he should be alive again

      ******END OF SPOILERS******

    The only thing I want to hear is “Ash and Mia team up to fight the Deadites.”

  • Darkknight2149

    Because he found the Necronomicon at a random house and then got sucked back in time?
