Starz Cancels “Ash vs. Evil Dead” Series

Starz has officially cancelled “Ash vs. Evil Dead” with the show to wrap up with its third season finale next Sunday (April 29th).

The series saw Bruce Campbell reprise his “Evil Dead” role of Ash Williams, a chainsaw-wielding anti-hero tasked with saving the world from evil. Dana DeLorenzo, Ray Santiago, and Lucy Lawless co-starred.

The show has seen a steep fall off in its ratings during this season, plummeting to a mere 0.08 rating in adults 18-49 and 177,000 viewers per episode.

The cancellation comes as Starz has changed up much of its line-up in the past year with “Black Sails” ending and “Survivor’s Remorse” cancelled, while “Counterpart” recently launched with “Sweetbitter” and “Vida” on the way next month.
