Netflix Has Cancelled 'Santa Clarita Diet' After Three Seasons

Netflix Cancels Santa Clarita Diet After 3 Seasons

True love may never die but sadly, Netflix has brought and end to their zombie comedy series "Santa Clarita Diet" after three seasons, multiple sources report tonight, including The Hollywood Reporter.

The series just premiered its third season on Netflix on March 29th.

The cancellation comes as a bit of a surprise given the apparent popularity of the series among fans and the fact that the series is owned and produced in-house at Netflix.

Netflix said in an official statement regarding the decision:

"The world had never known a 'zom-com' until Santa Clarita Diet, and we're indebted to creator Victor Fresco for bringing this idea to Netflix. To their endless credit, the incredible Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant were totally game, with an uncanny knack for comedy that brought Sheila and Joel Hammond to vibrant life, even though one of them was undead. We're grateful to Victor, Drew, and Timothy, along with fellow executive producers Tracy Katsky, Aaron Kaplan, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell and the terrific cast, including Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo, and crew for three hilarious seasons for Netflix members to discover for years to come."

Created Victor Fresco, "Santa Clarita Diet" followed Sheila Hammond (Drew Barrymore), a real estate agent who finds her life turned upside down when she becomes a zombie with a ravenous appetite for human flesh. Aided by her husband, Joel (Timothy Olyphant), her daughter, Abby (Liv Hewson), and neighbor, Eric (Skyler Gisondo), Sheila finds that when you become one of the living dead, life is far from over, it's just beginning... albeit with more blood and guts.

It's currently unknown if the series will be picked up by another streaming service, but we'll keep Crypt Teaze readers updated on any future announcements.
