I've got some terribly bad news for all of you Evil Dead fans. Starz has canceled Ash Vs. Evil Dead after three amazingly entertaining and blood-drenched seasons. I'm pretty bummed out about this and I don't like Staz right now.
That's it! This is the end! We will most likely never ever see Bruce Campbell in the role of the chainsaw-wielding, deadite fighting, all-around badass, Ash again.
Not long after Bruce Campbell said they would think about making another Evil Dead movie if Ash Vs. Evil Dead ended up getting canceled, he was asked at a recent convention if that was still the plan and he said:
"No, no, no. Because if they cancel it, I think Ash is done. I have lavender on my property. I’m going to smoke weed and hang out."
So, there ya go. At least we did get three seasons of Ash Vs. Evil Dead to enjoy! We knew that it wouldn't last forever.
Campbell was also an executive producer on the series, along with Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert from the original film franchise. Unfortunately, the shows ratings had a steep fall off during Season 3, which is what pushed Starz to make the decision to end it. So, I guess we can blame the fans who stopped watching it.
