Premiere Date and Plot Details for “Ash vs. Evil Dead” Season 3!

Premiere Date and Plot Details for “Ash vs. Evil Dead” Season 3!

Evil is about to get schooled.

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the third season of Starz’ “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” as the show normally returns in October but hadn’t yet received a premiere date as we headed into October this year. So what’s the deal? Has it been bumped? We’ve finally got the official word!

Via Starz this morning, “Ash vs. Evil Dead” Season 3 will premiere on Sunday, February 25, 2018. The third season will unleash 10 brand new episodes that’ll bring us “more grisly battles, ghoulish banter and more blood-drenched fun than ever.”

“The third season finds Ash’s status in Elk Grove, Michigan has changed from murderous urban legend to humanity-saving hometown hero. When Kelly witnesses a televised massacre with Ruby’s fingerprints all over it, she returns with a new friend to warn Ash and Pablo that evil isn’t done with them yet. Blood is thicker than water in the battle of good vs Evil Dead!”

The wickedly gore-filled series stars Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams, the chainsaw-wielding anti-hero tasked with saving the world from evil; Lucy Lawless as Ruby, the unpredictable foe and occasional ally who has strong ties to the origin of the “Necronomicon;” Ray Santiago plays Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash’s loyal sidekick and eternal optimist; and Dana DeLorenzo returns as Kelly Maxwell, orphaned in Season One and ready to kick some evil ass.

The upcoming season also finds Ash discovering his long lost daughter, Brandy Barr, played by newcomer Arielle Carver-O’Neill!

The Evil Dead original filmmakers Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell serve as executive producers on Season Three along with Ivan Raimi and Rick Jacobson. Mark Verheiden serves as Showrunner with Producer Moira Grant.

You can catch up on Seasons One and Two of “Ash vs Evil Dead” on the STARZ app.

    What a pity to wait till Feb 2018, I practically forgot and lost interest in this one. Barely recall season 2…

    • Josh Nitsche

      Shame on them for a smart business move. They can’t compete with The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, and Fear the Walking Dead, so why try?

      • American Atheist

        FTWD is shit. Stranger Things can be viewed whenever. TWD will be on in February.

        • Hayden Koutras

          everything you just said except for the comment about The Walking Dead is irrelevant. you may not enjoy FTWD but it does well and it’s still competition. same with Stranger Things, sure, you can watch it whenever, but nobody is gonna wait just because they can. Everyone is gonna be watching Stranger Things. be Realistic, it was a smart business move for Ash Vs. Evil Dead.

          • Jarle Solbakken Fremstad

            “Smart business move”.. We don’t even know if that was the reason, it’s all speculation started on this very page. The only legit information we have on the subject is that Starz was bought by Lionsgate as stated by Bruce in an interview.

          • Hayden Koutras

            Well obviously it’s not for sure but come on, this october is so busy i’m sure they feared drowning out. however, this is all speculation. and chill out Jack, it’s got a audience enough to renew it and it’s fanbase is still there.

          • JackJonston24

            It does well ? Are you mentally retarded or something,it had it’s lowest ratings this past week and it keeps going down ! Their audience is not even a third of TWD’s audience .

        • Josh Nitsche

          5 year low for last years finale. http://deadline.com/2017/04/the-walking-dead-ratings-finale-down-sonequa-martin-green-amc-1202060376/

          Choosing to air during The Walking Dead’s second half is still a better idea than going up against the premiere. Just look at the ratings. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Walking_Dead_(season_7)

    • American Atheist

      They seriously fucked up by delaying it that long. It should be on now. TWD is a lame excuse because it’ll be on in February. I think Starz is just trying to get rid of the show.

      • pablitonizer

        Tthat’s probably the reason. Didn’t they notice TWD premiered the same moment before? and Stranger things will be availabe in full on Netflix, it’s not like people are turning every week to watch an episode. All excuses, I won’t be surprise if after the possible lower ratings it’ll get in february, AVED gets cancelled… they’re putting it to a comma

    • MeeGhoulz

      So now you have time to watch it all over again!

    • John Connor

      Well, ya brainless bitch, you can binge watch each season in a day (heck, the full series in that time if you wanted) .

      Think, pablito.

      • Jay Brezzy

        Well…..That got serious in a hurry

  • Was hoping they’d have Ash’s daughter be the main character from the Evil Dead remake they did a few years ago. Glad they didn’t make it Kelly, she’s an awesome character on her own and doesn’t need to be Ash’s daughter. That would have had added little to the story other than confusion and unnecessary time travel nonsense.

  • Jay Bennett
    • Grimphantom

      Pffttt please, others have waited longer than that. Rick and Morty and Venture Bros.

  • American Atheist

    February? Hopefully, I’ll still give a fuck by then because it should be on now.

    • Ocelot006 .

      In what way is it being swept under the rug? What’s wrong with February?

    • John Connor

      Why the fuck would you lose interest?
      Are you that fucking stupid?
      Stop giving atheists a bad rep.

      • American Atheist

        The series is dead. Starz is just sweeping it under the rug. It’ll get lower ratings in February and it’ll justify to themselves to cancel the series. It was fun while it lasted.

        Like you represent atheists. LOL

        The name is just to remind Americans there are nonbelievers in America. Nothing more, nothing less. I represent nobody except myself. You sound like the pathetic christians who attack me for that name.

  • DaddyKo

    Bout time, ill have to order Starz for this season. Hope the show reaches the full 5 seasons Bruce was hoping for but I know it’s looking grave.

  • The Night King

    Personally, I think Ash vs The Evil Dead is too over the top even by horror standards. Each episode tries to out-due the last to the point where it’s just a never ending blood bath. The Three Stooges should never be an influence on horror.

  • DE@DFukk

    Horror fans complain a lot. I’m complaining about that

  • Necro

    Well I guess it’s better than not getting a third season at all! I’ll take what I can get at this point considering the show is basically on life support over at Starz right now. Also from what I’ve heard is the chances are very good that after this season the show won’t be getting a fourth season order from Starz. Ok come on February!

  • Hack Snyder

    February premiere? Bruce Campbell has barely been talking about it? It’s dead, we aren’t going to get a season 4. I love this show and want it to live long but that’s obviously not going to happen. I’m pissed at Robert Tapert, he fucked up everything by driving Craig DiGregorio away.

    • Charlie

      I also get the impression that this may be the last season of AvED, but, I wouldn’t dismiss Mark Verheiden so easily. After all, Sam, Bruce, Rob and Ivan hired him and are still executive producers which means they do quality control and approve of the material.

    • Michael M

      Bruce Campbell’s not talking about it because it’s not ready to premiere yet. Besides, New York ComicCon is this week and the cast has a panel, so now you’re gonna start hearing more about it over the next few months as promotion begins to start up for it. And it’s a good thing DiGregorio was removed as showrunner, because the idea he had for season two’s finale sounded absolutely terrible.

  • Nicolas Caiveau

    Damn, you’re really complaining for a mere 4 months delay ? When there are series that you have to wait 2 or 3 years between seasons ? You obviously never followed Sherlock….

  • J Jett

    i wish it was starting this month but YAY!! i’m still happy we’re finally getting a confirmed start date for this fun show! can’t wait!

  • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

    I’m excited but…February? October is prime Evil Dead season….February???

    • John Connor

      What does it matter?
      The show will still be the same no matter what month you watch it in.

      • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

        I guess it depends on how big a fan you are of the Halloween season. Sure it’ll still be good in February, but for me October is a celebration of everything horror and everything is enhanced because of it.

        There is a reason why 31 in 31 is a thing. This is basically Christmas for horror fans. Not many folks prefer to watch How The Grinch Stole Christmas or It’s A Wonderful Life in April.
        There is a reason why The Walking Dead and American Horror Story seasons kick off during this time. It’s prime horror time

        Not only is this the ideal season to release Ash Vs Evil Dead, but it’s the time that they HAVE released it in the past, until now, which makes me think there was trouble with the production this season. That and the fact that we have heard next to nothing until now. It’s not normal

  • Charlie

    Damn, I mean, I’m happy we got a premiere date and all but I wish it had taken place in October. It’s the only show I actually look forward to now a days.

  • AdamX

    Baring a Steelers win/appearance I am more excited for this than the Super Bowl.

  • Creepshow

    The writing is on the wall, per Bruce.

    “Our bosses, have new bosses.”

  • Baron Von Marlon

    Groovy!

  • John Connor

    This whole “AVED is in trouble because its airing is delayed ” mania is total bullshit.

    Starz had a giant hole in their spring schedule and Fall was overfilled.
    It makes sense to move it there combined with the curiosity of how it would do when its not airing around Thanksgiving and Christmas where most viewers are way too busy.
    This also gives plenty of time for new viewers to arrive because word of mouth will only increase as both seasons are really fucking wonderful.

  • MeeGhoulz

    Still hoping it will get enough seasons for them to make a good game out of it…

  • Jarle Solbakken Fremstad

    Some of the comments on here are really baffling! If something is not shown to us every second of every day we immediately loose interest? Jesus fucking christ, it’s like we alle share one collective patience and the more people there are the thinner it’s spread. If this is all it takes for you to loose interest and forget about then you are the problem. Spoiled and entitled, get over yourselves. Sure, I am a bit bummed that I’ll have to wait a couple of months more but I waited fucking 15 years for more Ash, I can take it a little while longer.
