Bruce Campbell says if Ash Vs Evil Dead gets cancelled they can look at making Evil Dead 4

If you cast your mind back to the heady days of 2013, Fast and Furious had just released its glorious sixth instalment, no one could let it go with Frozen, Man of Steel stunk up the silverscreen, we all danced to Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus, Splash was on ITV and Rylan Clarke won Celebrity Big Brother.

Ohhh those really were halcyon days.

One shining light in the darkness was the persistant rumours that Sam Raimi was going to make a sequel to Army of Darkness, cunningly titled Army of Darkness 2.

Well, that never happened but we did eventually get our Bruce Campbell fix with Ash Vs the Evil Dead on the small screen.

Speaking to EW to promote the third season, Campbell has hinted that Evil Dead 4 could be revived if the show isn’t renewed by Starz: “We won’t know till the middle of March,” said Campbell when asked about a potential season four renewal.

“We’re in the horrible television limbo right now. We’re going to see what the TV gods have in store for us. We’re ready either way. If they take us off the air, we can think about another movie. And if they don’t, we can just keep plugging away

“We can just keep plugging away,” this sentence might just be Bruce Campbell’s epitaph and completely encapsulates his career.

So, all you deadites out there… which would you rather have? More episodes of Ash Vs Evil Dead or Army of Darkness 2 (or something similar)?

Oh, and don’t forget, the Evil Dead remake in 2013 already teased that Ash’s time on the big screen was far from over:
