No More “Santa Clarita Diet” for Netflix

Netflix is going off its diet.

The streaming service has recently announced that it would be cancelling Santa Clarita Diet.

The move comes as a surprise as the series, about a wife who becomes a zombie and must deal with her new-found cravings for people, has been popular among both audiences and critics.

“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.”

The final 10 episodes of season 3 were released at the end of March.
