iZombie, from Warner Bros TV and Rob Thomas Prods, is a supernatural crime procedural that centers on a med student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity. But with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories, and with the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head.
Today at its upfront presentation for the 2018-2019 season, The CW announced that Season 5 of iZombie will be its last. The news comes the week after the veteran drama earned a last minute renewal for what will now be its final season.
While a show's fans never like to hear of it coming to an end, advanced notice like this does give showrunners an opportunity to craft a proper ending to the story - a situation much more desirable than when a show gets axed after a season-ending cliffhanger, as is what happens to so many.
The fifth and final season of iZombie was slotted in once again as a mid-season entry, meaning a premiere in early 2019 is likely.
