iZombie Season 3 News Includes Talk of Bad Ratings & Boyfriends

iZombie season 3 news

Although we haven’t heard much iZombie season 3 news yet – likely because the show isn’t set to come back until January 2017 – fans are finally being given minor teasers about what will hopefully be just one more of many seasons to come.

One bit of iZombie season 3 news that I’m somewhat sad about is that The CW is not only waiting until January to air new episodes, but the third season will also be a shorter one – just 13 episodes compared to season two’s 16 episodes. Many news outlets and fans have guessed that both the later premiere and shorter third season are due to some of season two’s poor ratings, but the finale was certainly explosive (in a maddening yet good way). Hopefully we have more of that dynamic to look forward to and this will lead to increased interest in a truly great TV show.

Another interesting development is an agreement between Netflix and The CW that will allow for CW shows to be available on Netflix just eight days after their season finales. While this could ostensibly lead to some people waiting out the season so that they can binge-watch it later, I’ve got my fingers crossed that iZombie’s writing will be up to par for season 3 and that it will continue to be a show many people want to view week to week. I’m certainly hooked enough to not want to wait!

The Geekiary covered the iZombie press room at San Diego Comic-Con this year and got some great insight about season three, and Rob Thomas also admitted that this time around Liv will have a new boyfriend who doesn’t die or become undead. Quite a change for the unlucky-in-love character, but I’m looking forward to seeing how they spin it…all while hoping that the rumors about Liv ending up with Major yet again are unfounded.

What do you think? Can iZombie overcome some of its not-so-great ratings from season 2? Will we finally get to see one of Liv’s boyfriends outlive a relationship with her? Let us know in the comments!
