Ash has spent the last thirty years avoiding responsibility, maturity, and the terrors of the Evil Dead until a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind and Ash becomes mankind's only hope.
The third film, Army of Darkness (1992), had to be largely ignored in the first season because Starz couldn't get the rights from Universal Pictures. The creators confirmed that Ash's trip to Medieval times did occur, but it just couldn't be referenced for legal reasons. This is a familiar situation for creator/director Sam Raimi, as the studio that had distributed The Evil Dead (1981) denied him permission to re-use some of its footage in Evil Dead II (1987). However, at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, producer Rob Tapert announced that in the wake of the show's popularity, Universal had given them permission to use elements from Army of Darkness for season two.
