Starz Cancels 'Ash vs. Evil Dead' After Three Seasons

Starz has today announced that the current third season of the original comedy series Ash vs. Evil Dead will be its last. The April 29 season finale will now serve as the series finale.

In its third season, the comedy stars Bruce Campbell, Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo, Lucy Lawless, Arielle Carver-O'Neill and Lindsay Farris.

Executive producers include Campbell, Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Ivan Raimi, Rick Jacobson, Moira Grant and showrunner Mark Verheiden.

"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, Starz.

"Ash vs. Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime," added Campbell. "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."
