TV Guide says that on Tuesday, Netflix renewed Santa Clarita Diet for season three. The show focuses on a happy enough suburban couple made up of two real estate agents, Sheila (who is played by Drew Barrymore) and Joel (played by Timothy Olyphant) Hammond.
Their normal lives of selling houses, spending time with friends and taking care of their daughter Abby, played by Liv Hewson are turned upside down after Sheila realizes that she is a zombie after having an unusual fit of projectile vomiting that covers her entire bathroom and attacking a man who was trying to sexually assault her by ripping his throat out. This change is both liberating and destructive for Sheila as she feels as though she has more energy than ever before but as she must learn to live with the need to eat human beings to not deteriorate.
The first two seasons of the show show how the pair come to terms with this catastrophic life change: from showing Sheila as she attempts to not eat humans, to showing the couple cleaning up human remains, to the couple choosing to only kill horrible people, to trying to keep their secret hidden, to attempting to find a cure with the help of their daughter, her friend who is the next door neighbor’s son, and a scientist who can only suggest that Joel kill Sheila.
At the end of season two, the pair manages to rid the world of the red clams that turned Sheila in the first place, but they will have many other challenges to face as the Netflix original series continues. The pair will have to deal with a shady couple who is out to get them, the sheriff who is their next door neighbor who thinks they are working for a divine cause, and their daughter who can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
