Bruce Campbell Has Officially Retired Ash

Campbell is calling it quits.

Bruce Campbell has revealed he will no longer play Ash Williams.

Campbell made the announcement on Twitter not too long after Starz officially canceled Ash vs. Evil Dead after three seasons.

“Big props to fans for the effort, but I’m retired as Ash. #timetofrysomeotherfish,” Campbell tweeted. The actor’s comment came in response to a Bloody Disgusting article encouraging fans of the show to urge Netflix to pick up the series.

Ash vs. Evil Dead will conclude with the Season 3/series finale, which airs April 29 at 9 p.m. PT/ET on Starz. The finale follows Ash and his allies trying to save the world one last time as they battle a global demon infestation, whose epicenter is Elk Grove.

“Ash vs. Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime,” Campbell said in a statement at the time. “Ash Williams was the role of a lifetime. It was an honor to reunite with Evil Dead partners Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi to give our tireless fans another taste of the outrageous horror/comedy they demanded.”
