SANTA CLARITA DIET
March 29, 2019  | By David Bianculli

Netflix, 3:00 a.m. ET

 

SEASON PREMIERE: It’s Season 3 for this zombie comedy, which has Drew Barrymore as a real estate agent adjusting to life after death. Or, rather, as life as a member of the flesh-eating, brain-craving undead. Just as the similarly afflicted characters of the CW’s iZombie have tried their best to adjust and blend in, so does Barrymore’s Sheila, who tries to control her appetite by targeting and consuming only the bad people of her community – a sort of zombie Dexter, with a weird but fixed lethal moral code. And this season, she tries to get her husband, Joel, played by Deadwood and Justified star Timothy Olyphant, to join her. Not as a co-murderer, because he’s been helping his wife on that front all along – but she wants to make him a zombie, too, so they can experience life, and death, from similar perspectives.
