Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 gets a release date

Netflix’s zombie comedy Santa Clarita Diet finally has a release date for Season 2

If you’re thirsting after new episodes of Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet, the good news is Season 2 is set to hit Netflix on 23 March.

The streaming service broke the news this week with this meme-style video on its Facebook page.

The show’s second season is set to bring in a few new characters, including Joel McHale and Maggie Lawson as Chris and Christa, “married realtors in Santa Clarita — and a more successful, more aggressive version of Sheila and Joel,” Gerald McRaney as Ed Thune, “a retired army colonel who Joel finds very intimidating,” and Zachary Knighton as Paul, “the chill descendent of Serbian ancestors who has been tasked with pursuing the truth of the undead, no matter who or what stands in his way.”

You can read the official synopsis for Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 here:

Picking up right where we left off, Season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet finds the Hammonds trying to adapt to Sheila’s now-advanced undead state — even though she’s desperately working to hold on to her suburban lifestyle and not be defined as just another monster. Unfortunately — while the family has become markedly better at murder — the number of missing people in Santa Clarita is starting to pile up and it’s no longer going unnoticed.  Meanwhile, the Hammonds are chasing the source of the virus so they can stop it from spreading and save humanity — which seems important. Through it all, Sheila and Joel are grounded by their unconditional love for one another.  Sure, being undead — or loving someone who is — isn’t always easy, but don’t all relationships have their challenges?

The show stars Drew Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant and Liv Hewson. It was created by Victor Fresco.
