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