Zombies are still huge in the pop culture world (let’s face it, they’re here to stay!), and iZombie: The Complete Second Season hits DVD on July 12, 2016.
(Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I review in this story. The opinions I share are my own.)
Fans of Veronica Mars should check out this series, because it’s from executive producers Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars, 90210, Party Down) and Diane Ruggiero-Wright (Veronica Mars, The Ex List), along with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment’s Vertigo.
The hit series from The CW, which brought in 2 million people weekly, stars Rose McIver (Once Upon a Time, Masters of Sex), Malcolm Goodwin (Breakout Kings), Rahul Kohli (Eastenders), Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill) and David Anders (Once Upon a Time, The Vampire Diaries).
Rose McIver plays Olivia “Liv” Moore, a medical resident on the fast track to a perfect life – until she’s turned into a zombie, that is. But Liv finds her calling — and an endless supply of food — working at the Seattle coroner’s office, helping to solve crimes with her “visions,” while her boss and sole confidante, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli) works on a cure for her pesky condition.
As season two begins, Liv’s ex-fiancé and love, Major (Robert Buckley), is reeling from recent events and the knowledge that Liv is a zombie. Meanwhile, Blaine (David Anders) — now human — struggles to maintain his zombie world; Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) searches for Blaine and suspects Major’s involvement in the Meat Cute massacre; and Ravi remains devoted to finding an antidote to the zombie virus. Unlikely alliances will be struck, relationships will be challenged and the line between good and evil will blur for both zombies and the fully living.
iZombie reminds me a little of The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, only with zombies. And with the Veronica Mars crew at the helm, the characters suck you in and make you want to keep watching. Oh, and be sure and follow the iZombie Writers on Twitter. Super fun.
Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior VP, TV Marketing, says it’s been a hit with viewers. “In only its second season on the air, it’s a no brainer that iZOMBIE continues to be a fan-favorite with its compelling characters and visionary plotlines,” she says. “We are delighted to bring iZOMBIE: The Complete Second Season to DVD.”
iZOMBIE is based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred for Vertigo from DC Entertainment. The series was developed for television by Thomas and Ruggiero-Wright, who executive produce along with Danielle Stokdyk (Veronica Mars, Party Down) and Dan Etheridge (Veronica Mars, Party Down). iZOMBIE is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Spondoolie Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
