The second season of Ash vs. Evil Dead ended with Ash being celebrated as a hero of Elk Grove. Naturally, this will carry over into the upcoming third season, which will be with us early next year.
Unfortunately, Starz hasn’t given us much to feast on just yet, but a new image has been released today (seen above) courtesy of TV Insider along with a quote from Bruce Campbell himself, who explains what Ash has been up to since we last saw him.
“Ash—like any shallow person—is determined to cash in on his fame. [Ash is] revving up the crowd at the grand opening of Ashy Slashy’s Hardware (and Sex Toy) Emporium.”
If there were ever a business for Ash, I don’t think it could get any more accurate than that. This also goes to show just how much his character has developed over the course of the show. After all, the second season started with Ash simply wanting to party in Jacksonville, but he’s no longer living in the past or trying to run from it. Maybe he’s going to become a true hero after all?
Also starring Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo, Michelle Hurd and Lucy Lawless, the official synopsis is as follows:
“The third season finds Ash, having gone from murderous urban legend to humanity-saving hometown hero, discovering that he has a long-lost daughter who’s been entrusted to his care. When Kelly witnesses a televised massacre with Ruby’s fingerprints all over it, she returns with a new friend to warn Ash and Pablo that evil isn’t done with them yet. But evil will learn to never get in between a papa bear and his cub.”
Season 3 of Ash vs Evil Dead will be summoned onto the small screen on Sunday, February 25, 2018, at 9pm ET/PT. Those who prefer to get their Deadite action on the go can also stream and/or download each episode via the official Starz app – just don’t pursue any illegal downloads, otherwise you risk getting on Ash’s wrong side. And nobody wants that.
