During our recent interview with George Romero, the filmmaker and horror icon revealed that Hollywood is incredibly leery of investing in any new zombie films; suggesting that many studios fear the undead are “played out.” But apparently that sentiment doesn’t apply to television as a number of new series shamble onto the small screen.
Thankfully, popular zombie programs like In The Flesh and Resurrection are anything but rehashed ripoffs of AMC’s incredibly successful series The Walking Dead; and later this year The CW will continue this creative new trend with iZombie starring Rose McIver.
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.
We briefly mentioned iZombie when news of the series was first announced. But as the season premiere draws ever closer, The CW has begun to update its official website and Facebook page with even more information including a brief synopsis, teaser videos and a number of brand new photos which we’ve embedded for you below.
As more news regarding the series is announced, we’ll be sure to keep you updated. But for now, take your very first look at iZombie. And be sure to let us know what you think!
