iZombie Season 3 air date announced

Only we have to wait a little bit for iZombie to start…

After what has felt like a lifetime of waiting, it has finally been confirmed that iZombie will return to American TV screens on 4 April 2017, with it being expected to be uploaded onto Netflix UK not too long after. With it becoming an increasingly popular tactic for shows to air in America and then be uploaded to UK Netflix the next day, we hope that this will be the case (We had to wait two years for the first two seasons, after all!).

When we spoke to showrunner Diane Ruggiero-Wright about Season Three she told us, “One of the things that we’re really, really excited about is that all of our main characters are now in the know… everyone is on the same playing field, and everyone knows what’s happening and how that affects our story moving forward.”

Liv (Rose McIver) makes her brains more interesting.

Taking up the bat from the end of Season Two, the third outing will see the gang deal with zombie corporation Fillmore Graves (we see what you did there) who appeared at the end of the finale, fronted by Vivian Stoll (Episodes). Ruggerio-Wright gave us a little more insight into what we can expect to happen: “[Vivian] is the head of this military, private contractor, black water-esque company called Fillmore Graves. This organisation believes that people are going to find out about it soon, and the zombies that are already living in Seattle need to be ready. That’s kind of what we deal with in our third season.”

But never fear, iZombie‘s trademark brain-of-the-week isn’t going anywhere, “I think until everybody is out, and everything is completely out with everyone in the world, we will still have cases of the week,” Ruggerio-Wright says. “I personally love the case of the week, but sometimes I worry that I’m alone in that. I love [Liv] on the different brains, and I love that coming into play with the rest of the story. Not only is she solving the case of the week on that brain, she also has to fight the zombie fight on that brain. I enjoy that.”

iZombie will air on Tuesdays on The CW from 4 April, followed by being avaliable to stream on Netflix UK.
