The Walking Dead has become an incredibly successful TV show on cable television. Now, The CW is trying their own zombie genre series. Will it be a ratings success as well? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
Loosely based on a comic book series, iZombie revolves around an over-achieving medical resident (Rose McIver) who ends up as a zombie. She’s able to keep her new condition a secret from her loved ones and, thanks to knowledge gained from dining on cadaver brains, is also able to help the police solve murders. The rest of the cast includes Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley, and David Anders.
