What can fans expect from the third season of Starz’s comedy-horror show, Ash vs. Evil Dead? That’s just the question your writer put to actor and genre legend Bruce Campbell when he dropped by the Sirius XM offices last week to record an interview for the Entertainment Weirdly radio show.
“We’re hoping it will be a game-changer,” teased Campbell of season 3, whose premiere date has yet to be made public. “We felt it was time to explore a little more of Ash Williams’ myth, because he is foretold in an ancient book — this is not me, this is the character talking — and it was time to crack into that. He’s not just a loser in a trailer park. He is foretold. So, why? Why him? We start to get some answers, and things get completely crazy — in episode 10, hopefully people will pick their jaw up off the floor. That’s what we’re going for. Nothing will be the same if we come back for season 4. And yet, if they don’t bring us back, I think we’ve done a nice little ba-dink.”
You can hear the full interview with Campbell on Entertainment Weirdly on Sirius XM’s Entertainment Weekly Channel at 1 p.m. ET, today.
Campbell’s new book, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor, is now available to purchase. The second season of Ash vs. Evil Dead is released on Blu-ray and DVD, Aug. 22. Watch a trailer for season 2, above.
