Following The CW Network's announcement with the midseason premiere dates earlier today, the network has debuted a new trailer for the upcoming series IZombie. From executive producer Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars), IZombie makes its series debut on Tuesday, March 17, (9:00-10:00pm ET), following an all-new episode of The Flash (8:00-9:00pm ET). Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) stars as 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.
Malcolm Goodwin (Breakout Kings), Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill) and David Anders (Once Upon a Time, The Vampire Diaries) co-star in the upcoming series, based on the DC/Vertigo comic book created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred. In addition to the trailer, we also have new photos from the series premiere, which you can check out below.
