“Oh great. I’ve doomed humanity.”

Warning: spoilers below…

This is it. The bittersweet conclusion to my all time favorite show to grace the small screen, Ash vs Evil Dead. Word came out a few weeks back of the decision by STARZ to cancel the show after its third season due to lackluster ratings. It certainly was not due to the quality of the show as season 3 has peaked the series in terms of gore, effects, emotion, and character development. Even Bruce Campbell who has portrayed hero Ash Williams for nearly 40 years, announced on social media his retirement from the character once word came out. I’ve lived and died with this show, the actors, and its fans since day one. I had the honor and privilege of interviewing the cast members several times over the past 3+ years, and it was my favorite part of NYCC each year. Bruce and the rest of cast assured everyone, that the finale was epic. So with that in mind, and a wide range of emotions in my heart, I cover the finale of Ash vs Evil Dead.

SPOILERS below!

‘Ash vs Evil Dead’: Bruce Campbell Retires From Playing Ash After Cancellation, Shares Farewell Message

Ash vs Evil Dead 104-01

Though not at all surprising, the news that Starz has decided to cancel Ash vs Evil Dead after three seasons was no less devastating to fans.

And the news doesn’t get any better. For anyone who was hoping that now that the show has been canceled it might find another home or perhaps even lead to that fourth Evil Dead movie—which was whispered about here and there over the years after Army of Darkness, before the 2013 reboot and eventually the TV series arrived—that’s not going to happen, sadly. Bruce Campbell, who played Ash Williams in the original film trilogy and on Ash vs Evil Dead, has announced that he is retiring from playing that role after nearly four decades. Campbell made the announcement in a farewell message to fans, which you can read below.

“My Boomstick; it’s got me out of a lot of scrapes but be careful… It’s got a hair trigger, kick like a mule.”

Warning: spoilers below…

This was a bad week for fans of Ash vs Evil Dead as STARZ announced that it would not be renewing the show for a fourth season. While the series hit a creative peak this season, the ratings simply were not there. And so this weekend saw the penultimate episode for my favorite show on television. And god dammit they are going down swinging. Last week saw Ash die in order to enter the Rift and rescue Brandy and Kelly. He was half successful as Brandy returned with him thanks to Pablo’s Brujo Especial powers. Kelly is trapped though thanks to Kaya still controlling her body. Let’s hold back the tears for one more week and brace ourselves as tonight, The Dark Ones arrived…

Ash vs Evil Dead, Season 2 Episode 8

Way back in October of 2015, I sat amongst thousands of Evil Dead fans at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom for the Ash vs Evil Dead panel at that year’s NYCC. After giving us a screening of the pilot episode, Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi spoke frankly and honestly about why they chose the STARZ network for the next phase in the Evil Dead universe and how the fans would ultimately decide the fate of the show. Simply put, after three seasons, the viewership just wasn’t there. With two episodes to go in what’s been an absolutely incredible Season 3, STARZ announced today it would not be renewing Ash and friends for a fourth season.

“To save those two, I would submit to a prostate exam.”

Warning: spoilers below…

The last two weeks on Ash vs Evil Dead have been rough on Ash and the Ghost Beaters. First, a vengeance-seeking Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) was killed by Ruby (Lucy Lawless) after a knockout drag-out fight. Then Ash had to watch as Ruby threw the Candarian dagger straight into her daughter Brandy’s back killing her as well. Ash is distraught as any father would be. Pablo (Ray Santiago) is also in tears, as this week’s episode begins due to Kelly being trapped in the Rift. Since Pablo used his Brujo Especial powers to open the Rift in the hardware store basement once before, they come up with a crazy plan to get their loved ones back…

“Well for starters there’s a very handsome, but demented version of me running around here so if you see I give you permission to break his face.”

Warning: spoilers ahead…

If you were waiting for Season 3 of Ash vs Evil Dead on STARZ to get REALLY bloody… first off, what’s wrong with you?!?! But secondly, holy crap this is the episode for you! Last week we got the crazy Kelly vs. Ruby brawl that led to Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) being killed in a moment that shook the AvED universe. Ruby (Lucy Lawless) used her body as a vessel to bring Kaya back from the Rift, a place on the other side where Kelly now resides. Meanwhile, Ash (Bruce Campbell) and Pablo (Ray Santiago) accidentally opened the Rift in the hardware store basement leading to a bloody confrontation with demonized Knights of Sumeria. This week, Ruby puts her plan in motion to stop Ash once and for all.

“F*ck with my Pablo, and you f*ck with me… and I’m done being f*cked with Ruby.”

Warning: spoilers ahead…

While Ash (Bruce Campbell) is and always will be the center of the Evil Dead universe, what’s made STARZ’s Ash vs Evil Dead such a fun show for two and half seasons is watching him interact with characters and actors that hold their own amongst the lunacy. In particular I’m talking about the Ghost Beaters, Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo). Santiago went through physical hell in season 2, being possessed by the Necronomicon, sliced in half, and later resurrected through the book. DeLorenzo somehow matched Campbell in the kickass one-liner department and went through emotional traumas like losing her parents in season 1 and Pablo in season 2. Last week, when she thought she lost Pablo again DeLorenzo demonstrated raw emotion we have rarely seen from Kelly, and some legit acting chops that drew tears from many the AvED faithful. This week, Kelly takes center stage, and is willing to put it all on the line to challenge Ruby (Lucy Lawless) once and for all…

“F*ck Kelly, sh*t’s about to get loco up in this bitch!”

We’ve reached the midpoint in the third season of Ash vs Evil Dead on STARZ and we left off with all of our Ghost Beaters in peril as Ash (Bruce Campbell) was face to face with Ruby’s demon spawn while accidentally stuck to a Norwegian woman via a sink… it’s complicated. Meanwhile, Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) and Brandy (Arielle Carver-O’Neill) locked themselves in Ash’s trailer fending off a deadite Pablo (Ray Santiago). Picking up right where we left off, Episode 3.5, “Baby Proof,” focuses on the Ghost Beaters’ struggle to do something they’ve really never done before… NOT kill evil.
