US horror comedy Ash vs Evil Dead has been axed by Starz after 3 seasons.
The series starring Bruce Campbell, Lucy Lawless and Ray Santiago, was e by Sam Raimi.
“Ash v 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 for Starz.
Campbell also tweeted his farewell to “the role of a lifetime.”
In 2016 he told TV Tonight, “There isn’t much of a comedy-horror genre. I think we’ve got it mostly sewn up. The Walking Dead is not a real laugh riot. Other shows like American Horror Story are not very funny either. So we’ve just continued to celebrate that genre, but I don’t know who is interested in following after us. It’s a funky genre. It’s splat-stick.”
Season 3 of Ash vs Evil Dead is currently screening in Australia on Stan.
Ash Vs Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime. Ash Williams was the role of a lifetime.
I will always be grateful to Starz, Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and our tireless fans for the opportunity to revisit the franchise that launched our careers. Thank you! 😎 pic.twitter.com/oNmTopS1Ab
