Could Ash Vs. Evil Dead continue as an animated series?
Asked by Collider if there was a future for “Ash vs. Evil Dead” after the thread during the end of Season 3, Campbell expressed interest in bringing Ash into the world of animation:
“You can do the future a lot easier in animation. I still talk like Ash, and you know, my voice hasn’t been as battered as my body has been, so I can still do that shit. So I’m still going to do the video game. And we’re already talking about an anime [series].”
If Campbell is serious, that’s a really exciting possibility. And it makes sense for him to continue the character via voiceover, considering the physical constraints that all of the live stunts have placed on him. But where could this show go? Well, at the end of Season 3, Ash makes the ultimate sacrifice to save the world by battling Kandar the Destroyer one-on-one. After saving the day, he is knocked out and wakes up in the future, which is a post-apocalyptic wasteland. But Ash’s adventures are just beginning as he spins his modified “Mad Max” Delta 88.
It was a good place to leave the character, even with no guarantee of renewal on the horizon, but it also leaves the door wide open for Campbell to continue showing those primitive fools of the future who he is. Needless to say, the future of “Evil Dead” has never looked brighter. Stay groovy, everyone!
Every season of “Ash vs. Evil Dead” is currently streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
