Specifically, when the hell is it premiering?
Given that Starz hasn’t yet announced the premiere date for Season 3 of “Ash vs. Evil Dead,“ rumors have been swirling around the horror community that it won’t kick off in the Fall like the previous two seasons did. Some fans are even worried about what that means for the future of the series, if it indeed has been bumped.
So what’s the deal here? Well, Bruce Campbell just took part in a brief interview with Red Carpet Crash, and he addressed the elephant in the room… as best he could.
“When you hear the date, let me know,” Campbell joked. “Starz has said a couple different things, about possibly shifting the premiere date to try and get a cleaner slot within the year. So we don’t know. It’ll either be Fall or first quarter 2018… is my guess.”
From what we gather, the shift to 2018 is likely, and we can only speculate (based on Campbell’s comments) that it may have something to do with Starz wanting to separate “Ash vs. Evil Dead” from “Stranger Things” and “The Walking Dead” a bit. After all, they’ll be dominating the Fall season, which is normally when “Ash vs. Evil Dead” is airing.
During the same interview, Campbell promised that Season 3 is going to be a game-changer.
“We blew the doors off with episodes 9 and 10 this season,” Campbell noted. “At the end of Season 3, hopefully you will have to pick your jaw up off the floor when you see what we’ve done. It’s pretty big. Nothing will ever be the same by the end of this season.”
Filming on “Ash vs. Evil Dead” Season 3 wrapped this past June.
