Ash Williams was prohibited from referencing one of his grooviest adventures on the first season of Ash vs Evil Dead, but Army of Darkness will finally get its due on the Starz series when the show returns for season 2.
During IGN's San Diego Comic-Con livestream, Ash vs Evil Dead's executive producer Rob Tapert revealed that the rights issues that once prevented the show from acknowledging the third film in the Evil Dead universe, Army of Darkness, are no longer an obstacle. Not only have those problems apparently been resolved, but also the show fully intends on referencing Ash's time-hopping journey in the next season.
"We actually can reference [Army of Darkness], and we reference it in this coming season," Tapert said during IGN's livestream.
"We just don't pull upon that universe, but this coming season Ash is able to talk about events that happened in Army of Darkness, although people are not likely to believe him, of course," he continued.
Showrunner Craig DiGregorio previously explained to IGN last year that legal rights issues prevented the show from mentioning the third film in the franchise. DiGregorio did note at the time Ash was still the Ash from that film, he just couldn't happen to allude to Ash's time-traveling adventure to 1300 AD.
