That was the news that rocked the Evil Dead community this past weekend, when Starz announced that Sunday’s episode of Ash Vs. Evil Dead will be its last. It’s a bittersweet end for the horror-comedy series, whose ratings have dwindled ever since season 3 began back in February.
It’ll now be remembered as the third and final installment of Ash’s story, and over on Facebook (h/t Bloody Disgusting), Bruce Campbell has shared a heartfelt farewell to Ash Williams, a character he’s since retired, all the while thanking fans for their unwavering support.
Good people, Evil Dead fans everywhere, I bid you a heartfelt farewell playing Ash – the character I took acting lessons with for 39 years. I am hereby retiring from that portrayal. It’s time. I followed Ash from his formative years thru his mid-life crisis and decline.
