We’ve had concerns ever since before Season 3 of “Ash vs. Evil Dead” even began filming that it’d be the series’ final season, and so too did the creative forces behind it. Months back, Bruce Campbell had explained that the Season 3 finale intentionally operates as a *series* finale, in case Starz decided to cancel. Sadly, they’ve made that decision.
The April 29th episode of “Ash vs. Evil Dead” will indeed be the series finale rather than merely a season finale, as Starz has opted to cancel “Ash vs. Evil Dead.”
“Ash vs. Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime,” Bruce Campbell just tweeted. “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.”
THR notes, “The series finale, airing April 29 at 9 p.m., will see the Ghostbeaters put to the ultimate test to defeat a global demon infestation whose epicenter is Elk Grove as Ash and company gear up for battle one last time to save the world.”
The only real silver lining to this is that the Season 3 finale sounds like it’ll be a satisfying conclusion to the saga, as it was designed to be. So. Yeah. At least we have that?
Ash Vs Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime. Ash Williams was the role of a lifetime.
I will always be grateful to Starz, Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and our tireless fans for the opportunity to revisit the franchise that launched our careers. Thank you! 😎 pic.twitter.com/oNmTopS1Ab
