After over two decades without any fresh Ash adventures, 2015 brought fans the debut of Starz series Ash vs Evil Dead, Bruce Campbell’s return to the chainsaw-wielding character that made him a horror icon.

By most accounts, season 1 of Ash vs Evil Dead was some damn good fun, and season 2 only upped the stakes when it came to both drama and righteous levels of splattery gore.

Naturally, the level of fan anticipation for Ash vs Evil Dead season 3 is high. Unfortunately, it looks like Ash lovers might have to wait awhile longer than normal for season 3 to premiere.

The first two seasons of AvED premiered in October, so most fans assumed that season 3 would do the same this year. As people have begun to notice though, it’s already August, and Starz has yet to announce a premiere date or promote season 3 in any way.

With that in mind, it seems unlikely that season 3 will be around in time for AvED’s usual Halloween-season debut. If that’s the case, the question now becomes just when season 3 will finally arrive to slice up some more Deadites.

Bruce Campbell was asked about that during a recent interview with Red Carpet Crash, designed to promote his new book Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B-Movie Actor, coming August 15th. Here’s what he had to say:

When you hear the date, let me know. Starz has said a couple different things, about possibly shifting the premiere date to try and get a cleaner slot within the year. So we don’t know. It’ll either be Fall or first quarter 2018… is my guess.”

So there you have it folks, not even Ash himself knows for sure when AvED season 3 will premiere. Still, the way he seems to be hedging his answer there points to a fall premiere being very much in question.

Stay tuned to iHorror for any further updates concerning Ash vs Evil Dead season 3, or any of your other favorite horror series. Here’s hoping Starz clears things up on this front sooner rather than later.
