It’s no secret that the future of the Starz series Ash vs Evil Dead is a little bit uncertain at the moment. This became clear when season three didn’t premiere around Halloween time, as the first two seasons had before it. The new season was pushed back a handful of months, premiering a few days back instead of this past fall.
The star of the series, as well as the original Evil Dead trilogy of movies the show shares a universe with, Bruce Campbell, recently did an interview about the new season. During this chat he was asked directly if there would be a season four, and also if there were any plans for a new movie in the franchise.
See what he had to say below.
First up Campbell was asked about the chances for a season four of Ash vs Evil Dead, which he gave a brief and blunt answer to:
“We won’t know till the middle of March. We’re in the horrible television limbo right now.”
After that, he was asked about if there were any plans for a new movie, to which he responded:
“We’re going to see what the TV gods have in store for us. We’re ready either way. If they take us off the air, we can think about another movie. And if they don’t, we can just keep plugging away.”
While not related to a new season or movie, the nearly 60-year-old Campbell was also asked if he was able to get through filming the new season physically unscathed, which the actor of course had a humorous response to:
“For the most part, yeah. Last season, I blew a hamstring. This year? No. It was just general wear and tear. I feel like I was Tom Brady getting through another season. When you see some of these fight scenes, crap’s going to happen. Mostly though, it falls on the shoulders of my excellent stuntman, Raicho Vasilev, from Bulgaria. I’ll hear these tremendous crashes from across the set and I’ll go, ‘Raicho, how’d it go?’ He’ll go, ‘F— this s—, boss!’ And I know he’s having a good time.”
