The fifth season of iZombie is underway and it’ll run into the summer nicely for The CW. This season got the nod last year and was also slated to be the final season for the series, so there’s a lot of hope in a good wrap-up as they had the knowledge ahead of time. With that in mind, the first promo has landed for the twelfth episode of the season due out on July 25th, 2019 with “Bye, Zombies,” which was directed by Michael Wale and written by Diane Ruggiero-Wright.
The series stars Rose McIver as Olivia “Liv” Moore, Malcolm Goodwin as Clive Babineaux, Rahul Kohli as Dr. Chakrabarti, Robert Buckley as Major Lilywhite and David Anders as Blaine DeBeers, with “Veronica Mars” executive producers Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright
The original book ran for twenty-eight issues beginning in 2010 as written by Chris Roberson and initial artist Michael Allred. Four collections were released previously. The live action adaptation isn’t working directly off of the books and stories within but rather taking most of the elements and going forward in its own direction, notably in changing the lead character from a gravedigger to a med student working as a coroner.
Plot concept: Olivia “Liv” Moore was a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out…until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. As one of the newly undead, Liv is doing her best to blend in and look as human as possible.
