Santa Clarita Diet‘s plot is about a real estate agent couple, Sheila (Barrymore) and Joel (Olyphant) whose lives suddenly took a dark turn when Sheila becomes a zombie who feeds on human flesh. With the help of her husband, daughter, Abby (Liv Hewson), and neighbor, Eric (Skyler Gisondo), Barrymore’s character tries to live a normal life at their suburban town.
The initial report notes that Netflix has yet to confirm whether Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 will have the same number of episodes with its first season. On the other hand, the brilliant man behind this horror-comedy series is Victor Fresco. Fresco is also the creator of shows like My Name is Earl and Better Off Ted.
The publication reports that Santa Clarita Diet is Barrymore’s first series-regular role this year. Apart from the Netflix series, Barrymore is also a narrator for an upcoming unscripted NBC dating show titled First Dates. The dating show will premiere next month.
