Netflix's Santa Clarita Diet will be back for season 3

I don't know about you but I loved the first two seasons of Netflix's original zombie-comedy series SANTA CLARITA DIET starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. The first season was a bloody delightful binge-watch and the second season kicked the laughs (and the blood, and the gore) into overdrive making for a sequel season that was even more fun than the first.

And so you can imagine that I'm currently looking forward to a third season like my next birthday. And speaking of which, as of today, Netflix has just officially renewed the series for a ten-episode third season set to air in 2019. There is no word at the moment whether or not the first two season's co-stars, such as Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo (HALLOWEEN) will return, but I guess (I hope) they're all a given by this point. Fingers crossed.

And for those you might not remember what the series is even about, it follows:

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? 

Below you can find a fun announcement video that was posted on the show's official Facebook page. It doesn't show us much in the way of new footage (why would it?) but it includes a few new back-and-forths between Barrymore and Olyphant that - for those who might be holding back on giving the series a day in court - fully showcases their utter charm together.

We'll keep you guys up to date on news regarding the new season but until then, remember that you can always stream the first two seasons over on Netflix right HERE. Enjoy!
