Sam Raimi’s characters serve as the basis for the spooky comedy series “Ash vs. Evil Dead.” Starz began airing the series on October 31, 2015, for the first time. You will enjoy this show if you are a fan of the supernatural themes and horror comedy found in Raimi’s ‘Evil Dead’ universe.
It has been thirty years since the original three ‘Evil Dead’ films were released, and that’s when the events of ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead take place. In this continuation of his story, Ash Williams is shown working at a place called the “Value Stop.” He joins forces with Pablo and Kelly to take on the Evil Dead in an effort to save humanity.
Ash, our favorite reckless and immature hero, jumped in to stop the Deadites in the first movies, and the rest is cinematic history. You’re going to really enjoy where the show goes from here. As one reviewer put it, “True to the movies that spawned it, Ash vs. Evil Dead is a gory, hilarious, and audacious resurrection of Sam Raimi’s beloved horror franchise.”
Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 4 Renewal Status
Fans were left heartbroken when Ash vs. Evil Dead was axed before its fourth season. By adapting the concept into a television series, the writers of the Evil Dead sequels were able to expand the Evil Dead mythos across three chaotic and funny seasons, giving audiences a look into the latter life of horror icon Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell).
Earlier seasons of Ash vs. Evil Dead were available to watch on Netflix before the premiere of season 3. Fans loved them, and the creators hoped their popularity would carry over to Season 2. A significant drop in live viewers was observed during season 3. Despite the cliffhanger conclusion, Starz decided to cancel Ash vs. Evil Dead because they didn’t want to be at Netflix’s mercy.
The actors were vocal and supportive of Ash vs. Evil Dead continuing through season 4. After hearing that Ash vs. Evil Dead had been canceled, dedicated viewers took to social media to launch a #BringBackBoomstick campaign in honor of Ash’s shotgun, which he called his “boomstick.” Many fans of the series anticipated that Netflix or another streaming service would pick it up and give it a fitting conclusion, but the Ash vs. Evil Dead termination was announced as final.
Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 4 Release Date
Ash vs. Evil Dead is no longer airing on Starz. Ash vs. Evil Dead has decided to end after Season 3. Although Starz has not announced its intentions for the next season, anything is possible. There are no known plans or airdates for Season 4 as of July 2023.
Ash vs. Evil Dead Storyline
The series is a continuation of the Evil Dead film franchise and takes place roughly 30 years after the events of the first three films. The stock guy at the “Value Stop” is what Ash Williams does for a living. His pal Pablo and Pablo’s crush Kelly are both employees at the shop.
Since his return from 1300 AD at the conclusion of Army of Darkness, Ash has apparently done very little with his life; he spends the first few episodes of the series living in a trailer and frequenting dive bars. However, Ash will soon have to abandon his mundane life in order to become a hero once again by picking up arms and confronting the titular Evil Dead. Pablo and Kelly are inspired to help him in his mission to preserve the world.
