First Look: Netflix’s The Santa Clarita Diet season 2

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Personally, I found the first season of Netflix's original zombie-comedy series THE SANTA CLARITA DIET starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant to be a bloody f*cking delightful binge watch. It is with this in mind I am looking forward to more flesh-eating shenanigans come season 2.

And speaking of season 2 today we have your first look at the new season along with pics and rundowns of the newest additions to the cast including Joel McHale and Maggie Lawson who will guest star as Chris and Christa, married realtors in Santa Clarita — and a more successful, more aggressive version of Sheila and Joel. 

On top of them, Gerald McRaney guest stars as Ed Thune, a retired army colonel who Joel finds very intimidating, and Zachary Knighton will guest stars as Paul, the chill descendent of Serbian ancestors who have been tasked with pursuing the truth of the undead, no matter who or what stands in his way.


In Santa Clarita Diet, Joel (Timothy Olyphant) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way.

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?
