Netflix's most delicious original comedy, Santa Clarita Diet, returns for Season 3 on Friday, March 29th. To celebrate the announcement, the streaming platform released a teaser, which includes scenes from the previous two seasons. Even so, fans of the hit Netflix series should be excited to know that the show is returning for another season with the original cast, including Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. Since Season 3 will be debuting soon, we will hopefully get some teaser footage from the upcoming season.
In Santa Clarita Diet, Joel (Timothy Olyphant) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction... but in a good way. The horror-comedy series was created by Victor Fresco and it has gained a cult audience over the last few years who enjoy the dark humor. The show debuted in 2017 and has gotten mainly positive reviews from critics, though the show has raised some controversy over graphic scenes.
While a show with called Santa Clarita Diet might not seem like a series with graphic content, it most definitely is. Drew Barrymore's Sheila contracted a zombie virus and has started to chop up and eat all of the negative people in her life. The brief teaser for Season 3 even shows Sheila gnawing on a human arm while having a conversation. As unsettling as the imagery may be, the show keeps getting bigger amongst dark humor and comedy horror fans.
Drew Barrymore is currently a judge on CBS' reality competition series The World's Best, which also features RuPaul, Faith Hill, and James Corden. Timothy Olyphant just wrapped production on the long awaited Deadwood movie, which is set to air on HBO in the spring. Fans have been waiting a long time to see Olyphant and crew back after being teased for years about a movie. Now, if the first movie is a success, fans just might get treated to a sequel a lot sooner than later and that's pretty great news. No official release date has been announced as of this writing.
Santa Clarita Diet streams exclusively on Netflix and returns for Season 3 at the end of next month. While the Netflix series keeps getting positive reviews, it is not without controversy. In February of 2017, a billboard promoting the series in Germany received many complaints. The image depicted a human finger sliced up like a currywurst, which is a popular German fast food dish. People were outraged and Netflix was forced to remove the billboard and other promotional posters that featured the image because it was considered to be too graphic.
