iZombie fans were ecstatic to learn of the show’s renewal, but their relief was tinged with disappointment as CW announced the fifth season will also be the last.
Despite the faithful viewers watching the crime-solving series since 2015, the zombie comic book adaptation has struggled in the ratings, and the announcement of CW primetime schedule confirmed that the show will be airing its final season this fall. The loyal fan base will thus have to accept that the crime-fighting zombie adventures have come to an end.
Rose McIver, who plays the lead role in the series, confirmed the announcement on Twitter, stating she was “committed and excited to make [Season 5] the best one yet”. We are looking forward to seeing if she manages to keep her promise.
So the fifth season of #iZombie will be our last. I am therefore committed and excited to make it the best one yet! Really proud to be on a show that celebrates the misfits and I pinch myself every day that I get to be a part of the iZombie world with you guys. Thank you ❤️
