Since the release of the of the CW horror comedy iZombie, I have been a fan. The show premiered in March 2015 and has done well with viewers. For those who may not have seen the show it follows former medical resident Olivia Moore (Rose McIver) who is turned into a zombie. The first season of the show really set the tone for the following seasons. The whole idea of the show was a new look on the zombie genre.
Show developers Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright did a great job with the show and casting. Producer, writer, and author Rob Thomas has been in the industry since 1996 and brought us shows such as Veronica Mars (2004-07) and 90210 (2008-13). Diane Ruggiero-Wright is a producer and screenwriter who has been in the industry since 2000. She has credits for the show iZombie (2015-present) which she co-created, the Veronica Mars ( film, and a few others. The cast also does a great job with character development and with the connection between each other. Rose McIver (Olivia Moore), Malcolm Goodwin (Clive Babineaux), Rahul Kohli (Ravi Chakarabarti), Aly Michalka (Peyton Charles), and others all did a great job.
For awhile there was debate about whether the series would be renewed after it's fourth season or not. With the fourth season coming to an end, the news of another season was finally released. According to TVline.com, the series will be returning for it's fifth and final season. I don't think the show should be cancelled, especially with it receiving such great reviews from critics and audience. The each season of the show hasn't received anything lower than a 90% approval rating on RottenTomatoes.com, with the last 3 season sitting on a 100% rating. I can't wait to see what turns the new season takes, especially after season 4.
