In the trailer, realtor-turned zombie Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and her still-human husband Joel (Timothy Olyphant) face a whole new set of questions surrounding their new lives together. Will daughter Abby (Liv Hewson) get fed up living with her blood-hungry mom? Is the ‘Bewarew The Knights Are Coming’ sign on the door a warning from the Knights of Serbia? And how soon after you kill someone is appropriate to have sex? With a theme of True Love Never Dies, the San Fernando Valley couple-next-door may be in it for the long haul.
Santa Clarita Diet ended its 10-episode Season Two with a cliffhanger, as the police close in on the couple for the murder of their neighbor, Gary. However, Gary is not actually dead. He is undead—or at least his severed head is.
Unfortunately, in Season Two, Sheila also ate some clams from Serbia that exacerbated her condition. Mystery couple Paul and Marsha destroy the clams. Showrunner Victor Fresco previously mentioned that Season Three will delve more into this mysterious couple. Do they have their eyes out on the Hammonds and not just the clams?
While critics generally praise the show, some critics and viewers have commented on its excessive gore. The show, featuring mounds of flesh, is definitely not for the faint-hearted. However, it is for the light-hearted with its jaunty take on…cannibalism.
Santa Clarita Diet Season Three debuts all 10 half-hour episodes on Netflix on Friday, March 29.
