Ash vs. Evil Dead is coming to a close with its current third season. Starz has cancelled the series, according to THR. The show’s third season finale will now be the series finale when it airs on April 27th.

Ash vs. Evil Dead has taken audiences on a wild ride for three seasons thanks to the fantastic performances and creative efforts of Sam, Bruce, Rob, and the entire cast and crew. We are proud to send the show out with a bang … and a splat,” said Carmi Zlotnik, president of programming at Starz.

Ash vs. Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime,” said star Bruce Campbell. “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. I will always be grateful to Starz for the opportunity to revisit the franchise that launched our careers.”

The show was never a ratings breakout for Starz, but started off fairly well with 437,000 viewers in its premiere episode in 2015. The show’s numbers eventually shrunk, with its April 15th episode down to 175,000 viewers.
