Another undead series is staying alive. The CW has renewed their new iZombie TV show for a second season.
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.
The show has been a middling performer for the network. It debuted in mid-March and has averaged a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.85 million viewers.
Most of The CW’s shows were already been picked up for next season months ago. Today, executive producer Rob Thomas announced via Twitter that iZombie would be back as well. No word on when season two will begin airing but it looks like the first season will complete in early June.
