iZombie series creator Rob Thomas revealed earlier today that the hit series was renewed for a second season. The CW Network hasn't confirmed how many episodes were ordered, or if iZombie Season 2 will debut in midseason once again, or if it will get a fall 2015 debut on The CW. The series debuted on March 17, with 2.34 million viewers tuning in for the premiere.
The show centers on Rose McIver's Olivia "Liv" Moore, a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out... until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. As one of the newly undead, Liv has devised a way to resist her baser urges to devour fresh human brains - she's taken a job in the Seattle coroner's office. In this appropriately dead-end job, she can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses that make a final stop in the morgue.
Liv remains resigned to an eternity without hope or purpose, until she realizes that with every brain she consumes, she retains a portion of that person's memories, and she begins to experience visions from the point of view of the murder victims. It's not the same as being alive again, but at least she can find purpose in her undead existence by helping to solve the murders of those who are indeed fully dead. The series also stars Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Molly Hagan, Robert Buckley, Elise Gatien, Aleks Paunovic, Nick Purcha, David Anders and Bradley James. Take a look at the tweets from Rob Thomas and series star Rose McIver with their reactions to the renewal.
