Ever since Starz mysteriously dropped Season 3 of Ash vs Evil Dead from their Fall release schedule, fans have feared the worst. And while the series was recently rescheduled for February 25th, 2018, it’s clear the show is on the bubble. The series’ struggles stem from a combination of lackluster ratings and dashed-profits resulting from illegal downloading.

If you’ve already done all of the above, there’s still one more thing you can do: Sign the petition launched on Change.org by Carlos Mazal: Renew Ash vs Evil Dead for Season 4 (and Season 5)! It reads:
We need your help get Ash vs Evil Dead renewed for Season 4.
Before the original premiere of the first season of Ash vs Evil Dead, us, primitive screw heads, had been waiting for the return of Bruce Campbell’s ‘Groovy’ Ash J. Williams for some 20 odd years. And now that it’s here, It is everything we could have hoped for and more! Thank STARZ! However, that being said, STARZ recently changed the AvED premiere date of it’s new season from it’s usual October time-slot to that of February 2018 while also keeping rather quiet on all things AvED – making us fans a little nervous, y’see. So, this petition is to show STARZthat there is still a HUGE fan base supporting STARZ and AvED’s broadcasting. All we want is to see STARZ, Bruce, Sam and Rob wrap up the iconic Evil Dead franchise, well, iconically! And the way to do that is with 2 more seasons!
Don’t forget to share on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or any other social media! Hail to the King, Baby!
