Netflix released the official trailer for its upcoming second season of “Santa Clarita Diet.”
The series stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as suburbanites Sheila and Joel Hammond. In the first season, Sheila found herself suddenly craving a new kind of diet: human flesh. The light-hearted zombie show became a hit when it premiered last year.
Netflix describes the new season in this way:
Picking up right where we left off, Season 2 of “Santa Clarita Diet” finds the Hammonds trying to adapt to Sheila’s now-advanced undead state — even though she’s desperately working to hold on to her suburban lifestyle and not be defined as just another monster. Unfortunately — while the family has become markedly better at murder — the number of missing people in Santa Clarita is starting to pile up and it’s no longer going unnoticed. Meanwhile, the Hammonds are chasing the source of the virus so they can stop it from spreading and save humanity — which seems important. Through it all, Sheila and Joel are grounded by their unconditional love for one another. Sure, being undead — or loving someone who is — isn’t always easy, but don’t all relationships have their challenges?
Liv Hewson, Skyler Gisondo, and Richard T. Jones also star.
Netflix will release the entire second season on March 23.
