While fans have been loving Bruce Campbell‘s return as Ash in ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ the ratings have been rocky. At this time we don’t know if the series will be renewed for another season, but if the show does get cut so does any future for the character. Those involved with the story have previously stated another movie could be on the table but the star no longer seems interested in pursuing that idea.
Last month Campbell shared the idea that a film could happen:
“We won’t know [if we’ve been renewed] till the middle of March. We’re in the horrible television limbo right now. If they take us off the air, we can think about another movie. And if they don’t, we can just keep plugging away.”
That deadline should be hitting any time now so the show’s fate will be known soon. However, now it seems that if there isn’t another season pickup, then a future movie might not happen after all.
At the Irish Film Institute, Campbell shared the news during his “Evening With Bruce Campbell” event:
“If they cancel it, I think Ash is done. I have lavender on my property. I’m going to smoke weed and hang out.”
The actor has long been known to change his stance on things so this could just be what he was feeling at the moment so this could have just been stated on a whim. Only time, and hopefully not a series cancellation, will tell!
Would you want a fourth movie to tie up all of the loose ends in the “Evil Dead” franchise if the series doesn’t get picked up for a fourth season? Which plotlines do you hope that they can tackle before the show and franchise come to an end? Share your thoughts below!
