'Ash vs. Evil Dead' Just Got Cancelled
Leading star Bruce Campbell has already posted a tweet regarding the end of the series.
He writes, "Ash vs. Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime. 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."
President of programming at Starz, Carmi Zlotnik, added, "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. We are proud to send the show out with a bang … and a splat."

Worst of all, Campbell recently explained in that if Ash vs. Evil Dead was ever cancelled, he would likely be hanging up his chainsaw for good as Ash Williams.
"If they cancel it, I think Ash is done," Campbell recently said. "I have lavender on my property. I'm going to smoke weed and hang out."
Ash vs. Evil Dead began as a small screen spinoff of director Sam Raimi's beloved Evil Dead film series. And while it began with high ratings during its initial season in 2015, the show's numbers had slowly been dwindling over the years.
We wish Campbell all the best with his new life of lavender, weed and hang-outs, though Ashy Slashy will no doubt be greatly missed.
