Virgin TV brings Ash vs Evil Dead back for round three

 

The wickedest show in town is back in Ash-Kicking splendour for a third series


Today Virgin Media announces the return of its TV exclusive, Ash vs Evil Dead, for a highly anticipated third series.
 

The STARZ Original horror-comedy is back with more blood-drenched fun than ever, starring Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams, the chainsaw-wielding anti-hero tasked with saving the world from evil. Ash, having gone from urban legend to hometown hero, discovers that he has a daughter who has been entrusted in his care. Whilst Kelly witnesses a massacre with their unpredictable foe Ruby’s fingerprints all over it, she returns to warn Ash and Pablo that evil isn’t done with them yet.
 

Season three of this action-packed new series will comprise ten half hour episodes, with the first launching on Virgin TV on demand on 26th February. A new episode will be released every Monday thereafter to run day in date with the US schedule.
 

This new season joins an impressive collection of Virgin TV Exclusives which are first run, addictive, highly acclaimed shows not available anywhere else in the UK. Top titles available to Virgin TV pay tiers include Kingdom, Imposters and Good Behaviour. New and long-time Evil Dead fans can catch up on seasons one and two in ‘Box Sets’, ‘On Demand’.
 

David Bouchier, Chief Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said:

The return of Ash vs Evil Dead for a third series is a welcome reward for the show’s fast growing and enthusiastic fan base. The impressive production line-up have delivered a plotline that’s gone from strength to strength and this new series is no exception.


Ash vs Evil Dead series three will be available to Virgin TV customers with More TV and above packages. Along with all Virgin TV Exclusives it will be available On Demand through the Virgin TV V6 or TiVo boxes as well as on mobile devices through the Virgin TV Anywhere app available on iOS and Android.
