Ash Vs. Evil Dead Cancelled After Three Seasons

Starz has cancelled Ash vs Evil Dead after three seasons.  The half-hour horror comedy series saw Bruce Campbell return to the role that made him famous, that of Ash Williams, accidental Deadite hunter.  He was joined by Dena DeLorenzo ( I met her at a convention.  She was really nice) as Kelly and Ray Santiago as Pablo.  Xena star Lucy Lawless also appeared as the somewhat evil Ruby.

The series was produced by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, who also produced (and in Sam’s case, directed) the original film trilogy upon which the series was based.  Despite its cult status, the series had trouble catching viewers.  The Ash Vs. Evil Dead premiere drew 437K viewers in 2015, while the latest episode only managed 175K.

The final episode is set to air April 29th, 2018.
