It’s been months of anticipation waiting for Ash vs. Evil Dead to return, and while its usual October release date was delayed till February, they’ve made up for it by releasing the trailer on Halloween!
It’s a natural escalation for the franchise, now blending high school life with the terrors of the Evil Dead. We get to see some new monsters, including a possessed high school mascot, and learn that Ash now has a daughter!
If this show has done one thing, it’s expand the lore to unbelievably new lengths. Who could’ve thought a low-budget film from 1981 would have such a large universe to explore decades later? It goes to show that the Evil Dead franchise is something truly special. And I am forever grateful we get to see Bruce Campbell return as Ash on a yearly basis. It’s truly a much better format than waiting a decade, give or take, just to see him return in a 90 minute sequel.
Let’s just hope the series gets to stay, as Bruce Campbell has recently explained that pirating may play a role in the show’s demise if we don’t show Starz some support. After all, Campbell did suggest he could be done as Ash after this season.
Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 finds Ash’s status in Elk Grove, Michigan has changed from murderous urban legend to humanity-saving hometown hero. When Kelly witnesses a televised massacre with Ruby’s fingerprints all over it, she returns with a new friend to warn Ash and Pablo that evil isn’t done with them yet. Blood is thicker than water in the battle of good vs Evil Dead!
Ash vs Evil Dead premieres on Starz on February 25, 2018.
