Call it a no-brainer. The CW has renewed “iZombie” for Season two. There’s no word yet, though, on whether the series, which has found positive critical attention and ratings momentum since premiering in March, will be returning in the fall. Given the success that iZombie has had this season, as well as various political (iZombie being produced by CBS Studios) and financial (iZombie has a concept made for syndication), it seems like a lock to return for the fall, bar any major developments.
From Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars), iZombie stars Rose McIver (Masters of Sex) as coroner’s assistant Olivia Moore, who becomes a zombie after being attacked at a boat party. While working at the King County Medical Examiner’s Office, she uses the access she has to dead bodies to help feed her cravings for human brains. In addition to keeping her humanity in tact, the consumption of human brains allows her to experience flashes of memories from those she eats, which has allowed her to close various cases that had been left open due to lack of sufficient evidence.
In addition to McIver, iZombie stars Malcolm Goodwin (American Gangster), Rahul Kohli (I’ll Be Home Soon), Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill), and David Anders (Alias).
iZombie airs Tuesdays at 9:00 on The CW. The network is set to release its 2015-2016 schedule on Thursday, May 14th.
