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.
“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.
