It is being reported that Starz has canceled Ash Vs. Evil Dead after three seasons. The news comes with just two episodes remaining in the show's run, with the April 29 season finale now acting as the series ender.

Set in Sam Raimi's Evil Dead universe, the comedic horror series follows Ash Williams, the aging monster-hunting lothario who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy mankind, Ash is forced back into action to face his demons - both personal and literal.

Ash vs. Evil Dead was a decent performer for the cable network during the bulk of its time on the air, though a downturn in viewership in Season 3 was likely a key factor in today's decision.
