The zombies are in danger when iZombie returns for season 2.
In the season finale, Liv (Rose McIver) gave up her chance to take the zombie cure by giving half of it to Major (Robert Buckley) and the other half to her nemesis Blaine (David Anders), who threatened a zombie apocalypse if he wasn’t around to keep the undead fed. But that’s not the only threat that’s coming in the second season.
Max Rager’s nefarious head honcho Vaughn (Steven Weber) will make good on his promise to take care of the zombie problem ahead of Super Max’s release. “The zombies on the offensive in season 1 are going to be on the defensive,” executive producer Rob Thomas teased at Comic-Con on Friday. “It will make strange bedfellows of Blaine and Liv, who are both concerned about the dwindling zombies in season 2.”
Blaine may actually be Liv’s only friend when the series returns, especially after telling her mom that she wouldn’t donate blood to her dying brother after the explosion at Meat Cute. “Everyone does hate Liv right now,” Thomas said. “As we start season 2, Major is still not quite over the fact that Liv did not let him in on her zombie secret. Of course, Peyton [Aly Michalka] is still on her walkabout around Europe as we start season 2. For reasons that we’ve all probably have seen, she’s a bit on the outs with any surviving family members that she has.” But the good news is Michalka will be back in the new season.
On the lighter side, McIver teased that one of the brains Liv will partake in during season 2. “I’m getting my guitar back out and I’ve got a few things I sing,” McIver said. Thomas also teased the brains for the first three episodes: Grumpy old man brain, frat boy brain and real housewife of Seattle brain.
iZombie returns Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
