Bruce Campbell on Ash vs Evil Dead and the Future

What lies in store for Ash Williams after season 3?

By Chris Morse

In true Evil Dead fashion, things do not stay peaceful and groovy for long when it comes to Ash Williams. With season 3 of Ash vs Evil Dead kicking off just a few days ago, Bruce Campbell recently spoke with EW and went over what's in store for the rest of the season and beyond, where the fate of the series is still very much up in the air. “He’s doing infomercials, he’s taken over his dad’s hardware store, and he’s the hero of Elk Grove,” he said. “What could go wrong? No, it’s going to go bad real quick. Ash’s world is always going to go to shit. That’s what it’s all about. If Ash isn’t eating a shit sandwich, he starves.”

The new season of Ash vs Evil Dead introduces a new character in Brandy, who is claiming to be Ash's long-lost daughter. Campbell calls this move good for the story and compares the demons and deadites to the mafia. “If they can’t get to Ash, they’re going to go for the family,” he explains. So how does Ash discover he has a daughter? He went on to talk about how this all goes down:


On returning characters Pablo and Kelly, Campbell had a lot of insight and lore to offer up about what's going on with them:


Regarding the fate of the TV series, the leading actor explains that it's all still up in the air. "We won’t know till the middle of March." he said. "We’re in the horrible television limbo right now." It can't feel too great to not know if the show will be able to continue on, but there is at least a plan in place should Ash vs Evil Dead be cancelled and fans may be excited to hear that a movie is not off the table:


So there you have it! While we would hate to see the TV series cancelled, some part of us kind of wants to see another Evil Dead film happen either way. Either way, it's great to hear that Bruce and Sam Raimi have no plans to cut Ash's story short anytime soon. Let us know what you thought of the season premiere of Ash vs Evil Dead in the comments below.
