Are you a fan of detective shows, comedies and zombies, but canâ€™t find a show that has all three? Well, look no further than the CWâ€™s iZombie, which just returned for its third season this past Tuesday. The show is a loose adaptation of the comic book series by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred about Liv Moore, who was once a promising surgeon before she went to a boat party and was a scratched by a zombie. After waking up in a body bag, she changes everything in her life and takes a job at the morgue, where she can have an endless supply of brains (which she must eat in order to avoid full-on zombie mode. Itâ€™s important to note that the zombies in iZombie can talk, walk, and basically look normal as long as they tan their skin and dye their hair. Liv does not blend in and forces her family to believe she has gone emo after the tragic boat party.) In the morgue she works alongside Ravi, who immediately recognizes her zombieness and is interested to work on a cure.
In season 1, Liv copes with her new lifestyle, as Ravi works to find a cure. As she feeds on the brains at the morgue, she gets visions of the dead, which help her solve murders with Detective Clive Babineaux, who thinks sheâ€™s psychic. (Which is so much more believable!) Just like any other detective show there are twists and turns to solving the crime, but thereâ€™s also a lot of humor, especially because Liv takes on the personalities of the brain she has eaten.
Season 2 brings in new zombies and the crime lord Mr. Boss, along with a potential cure. Liv has more than one romance and friendships are tested. The finale of season 2 was probably one of my favorite episodes so far, making me pumped for the start of season 3. The premiere this past week did not disappoint and I am excited to see where this season takes us. More zombies are in Seattle than we thought, and the humans might be finding out soon.
Catch up on the previous seasons of iZombie now.
Season 3 airs Tuesdays at 9 on the CW.
