Starz has announced that horror comedy Ash vs Evil Dead has been cancelled after three seasons.
“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,” said Carmi Zlotnik, president of programming at Starz.
The cancellation of Ash vs Evil Dead comes not long after Starz concluded basketball comedy Survivor’s Remorse after four seasons. The premium network has been working to revamp its scripted lineup in recent months, with dramedies Sweetbitter and Vida to debut next month. Its current scripted slate includes Counterpart, Power, and Outlander, with anthology The Girlfriend Experience still in limbo.
Serving as a sequel to the Evil Dead film series, Ash vs Evil Dead followed Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) 30 years after the events of the original trilogy. The series followed Ash as he’s drawn back into the life of fighting evil that he thought he left behind, only this time with co-workers/friends Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo).
The series finale of Ash vs Evil Dead is set to air Sunday, April 29th at 9:00 on Starz.
