It was a rather treat in itself when it was confirmed that popular actress Drew Barrymore will be making her small screen debut with the zom-com (zombie comedy), Santa Clarita Diet. The show premiered on Netflix and it was received well by critics. However, it was the fact that the audiences loved it and the show was an instant hit.
The same was continued with another season on the platform and finally, the third season dropped on March 29, 2019, with the final installment of 10 episodes too. But as a major shocker indeed, it is now confirmed that Santa Clarita Diet has been canceled by Netflix.
Yes! That's right.
"The world had never known a 'zom-com' until Santa Clarita Diet, and we're indebted to creator Victor Fresco for bringing this idea to Netflix," Netflix said in a statement. "To their endless credit, the incredible Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant were totally game, with an uncanny knack for comedy that brought Sheila and Joel Hammond to vibrant life, even though one of them was undead. We're grateful to Victor, Drew, and Timothy, along with fellow executive producers Tracy Katsky, Aaron Kaplan, Chris Miller, and Ember Truesdell and the terrific cast, including Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo, and crew for three hilarious seasons for Netflix members to discover for years to come."
Santa Clarita Diet will be sorely missed by the fans!
