In television, Campbell has starred inThe Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. (1993–94) and Jack of All Trades (2000), and a recurring role as Autolycus, King of Thieves, in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess (1995–99). He played Sam Axe on the USA Network series Burn Notice (2007–13) and reprised his role as Ash Williams on the Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead (2015–18).

Campbell started his directing career with Fanalysis (2002) and A Community Speaks (2004), and then with the horror comedy feature films Man with the Screaming Brain (2005) and My Name Is Bruce (2007), the latter being a spoof of his career. He can also be seen as the role of the father in The Escort (2015).
