The CW’s cult-favorite series, iZombie, starring Rose McIver as the brain-eating, psychic-ish zombie medical examiner, Liv Moore is set to return for its fifth -- and final -- season of undead antics on May 2.
The end of the beginning for the Seattle-set, comedy-drama/police-procedural hybrid will commence with “Thug Death,” an episode directed by Rob Thomas, the iZombie executive producer (and Veronica Mars creator!) who helped develop the same-titled DC Vertigo comic for the small screen.
In addition to McIver, the season opener will feature Robert Salvador, as the recurring character, Detective Cavanaugh, Malcolm Goodwin, as series stalwart Detective Clive Babineaux, and Rahul Kohli, as Liv’s boss and confidant, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti.
iZombie premiered in 2015. While it’s never attracted a mammoth live-TV audience -- it averaged less than 1.25 million viewers per episode during Season 4 -- it’s beloved by fans, some of whom are critics. On the review-aggregate site Metacritic, iZombie boasts a solid Metascore of 74; Entertainment Weekly’s Jeff Jensen praised the show for “inject[ing] fresh life into the increasingly staid genre of supernatural TV.”
The show’s final season will feature Kareem Abdul-Jabbar -- yes, the NBA legend and Airplane! pilot -- as a city councilmember who got zombie-fied in Seattle's zombie outbreak.
