Are you ready for more Liv, iZombie Fanatics?!

Liv Moore and the rest of Team Z live to see another day.

During a day full of shocking cancelations and stunning pickup announcements, iZombie was one of the last-minute renewals we were very happy to see in our news feed.

Bachelor Playboy - iZombie

It was a nail-biter awaiting the fate of the best zombie show on the air. iZombie season 4 has been a polarizing season after the series shook up its premise by exposing the existence of zombies to Seattle and beyond.

Liv has taken on a new role and a new crusade as Renegade, a coyote smuggling humans into a walled-off New Seattle to start new lives joining the ranks of the undead.

It has been the most political season of the series to date with New Seattle under Martial law and allegories being used to address illegal immigration, autocracy, prejudice and more.

The Hype Man - iZombie Season 4 Episode 7

Season 4 has been all about gray areas and choosing sides with friends fundamentally opposed to each other's beliefs.

With a city infested with too many zombies, a brain shortage, and potential cures and vaccinations floating about, there is no way this story is over yet!

Besides, there are far too many brain personalities for Liv to channel before this series comes to an end, and Rose McIver has too much left to give.

Blaine's New Plan - iZombie Season 4 Episode 9

It's been a busy day at The CW where several new series were picked up and one hopeful discovered it wouldn't make it air.

The Supernatural spinoff, Wayward Sisters, once considered a sure thing for pickup, was left on the cutting room floor.

Meanwhile, two reboots, Charmed and Roswell, New Mexico, landed series pickups as well as The Originals spinoff, Legacies. 

So what do you think about what lies ahead on The CW. There were no significant cancelations so there shouldn't be any heartbreak.

If you need to catch up on all things undead, you can watch iZombie online to do it.

iZombie Quotes

I have so many questions. First, why the hot sauce? Is that a zombie thing?

Ravi

I don't have post-traumatic stress. I have post-traumatic ennui. Post-traumatic defeatism. Post-traumatic 'what's the point?'
