Starz axes 'Ash vs. Evil Dead' after season 3

Ash vs. Evil Dead

*A single tear rolls down my cheek*

It's a rough day for all the Ash William fans out there: Starz had made the announcement that Ash vs. Evil Dead won't be returning for a fourth season after season three wraps.

That means that the season three finale, which will air on April 29, might be the very last day we ever get to see Bruce Campbell wielding his infamous chainsaw.

Ash vs. Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime,” Campbell said via The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”

No really, this one cuts too deep. How could you Starz?

To be fair, Starz was kind enough to rebirth Ash Williams in 2015 with Ash vs. Evil Dead, bringing the character back to life for the first time since Army of Darkness, which was released in 1992. They gave us three bloody, gory, absurd and hysterical seasons that we can now watch over and over again.

Ash vs. Evil Dead has taken audiences on a wild ride for three seasons thanks to the fantastic performances and creative efforts of Sam, Bruce, Rob and the entire cast and crew,” said Carmi Zlotnik, president of programming at Starz. “We are proud to send the show out with a bang … and a splat.”

The Ash vs. Evil Dead creators had previously announced that the season finale had also been designed to serve as a series finale, in case an announcement like this was made. That means we, at least, won’t be left with a giant cliff-hanger that we’ll never see resolved.

I’m still bummed though. Ash vs. Evil Dead is everything you could ever want from an Evil Dead show, and the fact that more people weren’t watching it is a shame.

The first two seasons of Ash vs. Evil Dead are available now on Netflix. The final two episodes of the series will air on Starz in the coming weeks.

The fella over there with the hella good hair. Movies and TV are my jam, and the fact that I get to write about them on a regular basis is the bees knees.
