The horror-comedy television series, Santa Clarita Diet, stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as an average suburban husband-and-wife realtor team.


Like any couple, they have to balance work and career but need to re-evaluate their life when Sheila Hammond, portrayed by Barrymore, turns into a flesh-eating zombie.

The second season of the dark comedy premiered on Netflix on March 23, 2018, and less than two months later, Netflix announced that season three would be released in 2019.

The show has also been teasing fans on Twitter with news of the renewal and shared a complication of scenes indicating the future has 'more' to come.


Santa Clarita Diet also features Liv Hewson in the role of Sheila's daughter, Abby, and Skyler Gisondo as the boy-next-door and Abby's best friend, Eric Bemis.

As reported by Deadline, the series was created by Victor Fresco and has an impressive list of executive producers, including Barrymore herself and Ruben Fleisher.

Fleisher also directed fan-favorite films such as Zombieland, Gangster Squad and his upcoming feature, the Venom origin film, is already garnering excitement among fans.

The inspiration for the show came when showrunner Fresco wanted to create a unique 'family show with an interesting approach' while also showcasing that zombies are 'the ultimate narcissists,' EW reported.


In an interview with EW, Fresco also revealed that he grew tired of family shows where the premise was interesting but the theme poorly conceptualized.

"As a writer, you just try to do something that you feel is going to be really fun for you to write, and this felt like — and was — fun to write."

He also wanted to create a show where the core idea was that 'love conquers all' and that a relationship built on love and mutual understanding can overcome any obstacle. Even zombieism.
