Fans of the “iZombie” TV series which is based on the Vertigo Comics series of the same name, will be excited about the series return. It’s quirky humor and interesting storylines have been missed for a number of months but with this return comes the sad news that this will be the Final Season. Take a look at the poster, overall premise and some of the casting.
The Premise: Seattle medical resident Olivia “Liv” Moore has turned into a zombie while attending a boat party. She abandons her career and breaks up with her fiancé, much to the disappointment and puzzlement of her family. She discovers that if she does not periodically satisfy her new appetite for brains, she starts turning into a stereotypical, stupid and homicidal zombie. Instead of feeding by killing innocent people, Liv decides to take a job at the King County morgue and eat the brains of the corpses she autopsies. Her secret is guessed by her boss, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti. Ravi soon becomes Liv’s friend and confidant, and as a scientist, he is intrigued by her condition.
Liv finds out that whenever she eats a dead person’s brain, she temporarily inherits some of their personality traits and skills, and she experiences flashbacks of that person’s life. Those visions are generally triggered by sights (events or objects) or sounds (repeated sentences). In the case of murder victims, the flashbacks offer clues about the killer. Liv decides to use this new ability to help Police Detective Clive Babineaux solve crimes. Though she initially passes herself off as a psychic, Clive eventually learns the truth about her and zombies. Meanwhile, Ravi works to develop a cure for Liv’s affliction, in the hope that one day she will be able to return to her former life.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve been watching this show since it premiered and I enjoyed it quite a bit. It was different and weird and had some great characters and story lines. Since they knew it would be ending with this season my hope is that we get a proper closer as the end and nothing that leaves you hanging. I don’t believe this will be a full conventional season and is only a bunch of episodes so let’s enjoy it while we can. What do you readers think? Are you happy for its return and sad to see it go? Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.
