Cast santa clarita diet

For those who gripe that eating out can cost and arm and a leg, consider the Santa Clarita Diet — in which dining at home can cost an arm. Someone else’s arm. Netflix today announced a March 29 premiere date for Season 3 of its kinda-culinary dark comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant.

Watch the tasty — er, tasteful — Valentine’s Day-themed video announcement above.

Netflix

The series created by TV veteran Victor Fresco follows realtor spouses Sheila (Barrymore) and Joel (Olyphant), who lead vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenage daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change that sends their lives down a road of death and destruction — but in a good way.

Sheila’s big problem isn’t that she missed her sales quota — rather, she has contracted a zombie virus and has begun to devour all the nasty people around her. And they say real estate is a dog-eat-dog business.

The streamer notes that Season 3 will have a “’til death do us part” angle. Just whose death remains in question.

Speaking of which, Barrymore and Olyphant told Deadline in an interview last year that it’s suprising their characters’ carnal attraction to each other hasn’t led to her noshing on him. “She almost did,” Olyphant joked about their spicy love scenes. “I feel we needed a safe word.” Barrymore recalled: “I did smack you. It is my job, and we were having fun. I wanted to give it my all.”

Is Santa Clarita Diet season 4 happening, and if so, when will it release? One of Netflix’s more underappreciated comedies is Santa Clarita Diet, a story about a realtor, played by Drew Barrymore, who becomes a zombie by eating some bad food, and then she and her husband, played by Timothy Olyphant, are forced into killing people so she can survive. Of course, things don’t always go according to plan, and the story spirals from there.

What makes Santa Clarita Diet special amongst all the comedy shows out there is its smart humor. If audiences find something absurd about a plot point or a character development, Santa Clarita Diet’s writers and producers will lean into that. Plus, it’s rare for practically every character to bounce perfectly off each other. That’s why audiences were excited when Santa Clarita Diet season 3 returned this year. But will Santa Clarita Diet season 4 happen?

A Santa Clarita Diet season 4 renewal hasn’t been officially ordered by Netflix, and unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like it’s ever going to happen. Shortly after season 3 released, Netflix canceled Santa Clarita Diet instead of announcing season 4. And it’s something that perhaps should’ve been expected.

Santa Clarita Diet Season 4 Renewal & Release Date Info

Again, Santa Clarita Diet has been cancelled, so while Santa Clarita Diet season 4 should’ve released by the end of March in 2020, it’s no longer going to happen. Usually, Netflix renews a show about a month or two after its latest season releases; that way they have enough time to determine whether the show/season has been successful or not. Santa Clarita Diet season 2 was announced over a month after the series premiered in 2017, and the same happened for season 3 in 2018. But this time, it resulted in a cancellation, and that’s primarily because Netflix doesn’t see much potential in any show continuing past three seasons, with few exceptions being breakout hits like House of Cards and Stranger Things.

Santa Clarita Diet Season 4 Story Details

Santa Clarita Diet season 3 wrapped up most of the season 2 storyline, with Anne leaving the picture (and the Hammonds alone), the Knights of Serbia no longer being a problem for Sheila and Joel, and the fracking site explosion finally… blowing over. But all of that, mixed with all-new twists and turns, set up an even stranger Santa Clarita Diet season 4.

Recapping Santa Clarita Diet season 3 – Anne isn’t bothering the Hammonds anymore, but she still convinced plenty of people that Shiela is a divine being; Joel is now a member of the Knights of Serbia (and so is Abby, for that matter); Ron is no longer a problem for the Hammonds and he gave up trying to turn everyone into zombies (but he may be part of a new Sheila-focused, zombie-protecting team?); and, on a happier note, Abby and Eric appear to be giving their relationship a real shot now.

But the biggest story development Santa Clarita Diet season 4 could’ve explored is Mr. Ball Legs crawling into Joel’s brain, through his ear canal, and apparently killing him. And in order to save her husband, Sheila turns Joel into a zombie. It would’ve certainly been interesting to see what kind of zombie Joel turned out to be, seeing as that was one of his biggest concerns when Sheila asked him to spend an eternity with her. Or, at least, 1,000 years. All of this should’ve developed into an off-the-rails Santa Clarita Diet season 4.

‘Santa Clarita Diet’ Canceled at Netflix

The third season of Netflix’s Drew Barrymore- and Timothy Olyphant-led zombie comedy Santa Clarita Diet will be its last.

The streaming giant has opted to cancel the series from showrunner Victor Fresco. The decision comes as a bit of a surprise given the star power attached to the wacky comedy about a married couple in suburbia and the fact that the series is owned and produced in-house at Netflix.

“The world had never known a ‘zom-com’ until Santa Clarita Diet, and we’re indebted to creator Victor Fresco for bringing this idea to Netflix,” Netflix said Friday in a statement. “To their endless credit, the incredible Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant were totally game, with an uncanny knack for comedy that brought Sheila and Joel Hammond to vibrant life, even though one of them was undead. We’re grateful to Victor, Drew and Timothy, along with fellow executive producers Tracy Katsky, Aaron Kaplan, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell and the terrific cast, including Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo, and crew for three hilarious seasons for Netflix members to discover for years to come.”

While Netflix hadn’t previously announced that Santa Clarita Diet would be ending with season three (which launched March 29), promotional materials for the latest batch of episodes hinted at a fatal decision. The trailer teased that Olyphant’s character could become undead as well, enabling him and his wife and fellow realtor Sheila (Barrymore), whose undead transformation early in season one set the series in motion, to spend eternity together. Posters for season three posed the question, “Til Death?”

“Like our audience, we were all-in on Sheila and Joel. Their relationship, in the face of incredible adversity, was inspiring to write and to watch. Mostly, they were funny, which in a comedy is important. Working with Drew and Tim, along with the immensely talented Liv and Skyler, was a joy and a once in a lifetime experience,” Fresco and executive producer Tracy Katsky said in a joint statement. “Netflix took a chance on this odd show and for that we will always be grateful. They were supportive, ever positive, and appreciative of our work. Until about noon today. Still, they were just one phone call away from being a perfect studio. Not bad. Everything ends. This was a thing. And so it ended. We’ll miss it but are proud of the work we did and will always appreciate the love and enthusiasm we felt from our audience. If it was up to them, Sheila and Joel would continue for another 10,000 years.”

Two weeks after Santa Clarita Diet’s second season dropped last year, Fresco said the writers were already back at work on a then-unannounced third installment and that there was a lot they could still explore with Joel, Sheila and their suburban community. “There’s always more story. The whole season one took place over two weeks and season two takes place over two weeks, so they’re still only about a month into this incredible change that they’re going through,” Fresco said of Joel and Sheila.

“Of all of the characters I’ve ever been, Sheila Hammond is one of my favorites,” said star and exec producer Barrymore. “She and Joel were an amazing couple, who had shared goals. And I am lucky to have worked alongside Tim Olyphant. It was an honor to get to do something so delightful. Sheila lives forever in me. And I am grateful to Victor Fresco, who created a world so unique.”

Added star and exec producer Olyphant: “I loved working on this show. I’m going to continue coming in and doing scenes. If they don’t want to film it, that’s up to them.”

Though Fresco and his team hadn’t received data from Netflix about the show, he previously said, “We hear anecdotally from people and I think it’s been well-received. I know that the people who are important to me in my friends and family and the actors on the show really had a good time doing it and really are happy with it, so that’s important to me. I feel good about it and the stuff that I’ve heard back is good too and the stuff I’ve read has been very positive about it, which I enjoy also. It’s touched people in a way I didn’t anticipate when I first created it.”

The show was renewed for a third season just a few weeks after that. Netflix, like fellow streamers Amazon and Hulu, famously doesn’t release viewership information. Santa Clarita Diet has an average 89 percent rating among critics and 87 percent audience score for its three seasons on Rotten Tomatoes.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter the day season three launched, Fresco said that he and his team didn’t “know anything” about the fate of the series and that nothing had been decided about whether Santa Clarita Diet would be renewed or canceled.

“We’re aware that the show gets more expensive every year; we’re aware of what seems like templates of studio stuff now. It looks like mostly three-season stuff,” he said, seemingly confirming a recent report that the streamer now appears to have a two- or three-season business model for many series. “We know they like the show. I like to say the humans there seem to love the show; I don’t know how the algorithm feels about us, and the algorithm makes a lot of decisions, ultimately. So I just don’t know.”

Fresco, who said he imagined the series running for five seasons, and his team crafted the season-three finale not knowing what the future of the show was, he explained, adding that if that episode turns out to be the series finale, “We wanted to leave it hopefully satisfying if we don’t come back, but also promising something that could be really interesting to explore if we do come back.”

Santa Clarita Diet marked Barrymore’s first series-regular TV role. She has since said that it was the script for Santa Clarita Diet that made her want to act again. Fresco, Barrymore, Olyphant, Kapital Entertainment’s Aaron Kaplan and Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell exec produced.

The cancellation arrives as Netflix continues to carefully review its internal data when it makes renewal decisions. The streamer, which spends upward of $8 billion on original content, typically has to take on added costs as series age. Netflix most recently pulled the plug on the critically acclaimed comedy One Day at a Time after three seasons after the streamer could not work out a new deal with owners/producers Sony TV. That followed Netflix’s decision to sever ties with Marvel and cancel all of its remaining dramas (all of which were owned by Disney).

But while One Day at a Time and the Marvel series that Netflix dumped came from outside studios, Santa Clarita Diet is a Netflix production.

So if the streamer chooses to pull the plug on its own series, it’s unknown if Fresco could take the comedy that Netflix owns elsewhere.

“I can’t see how it could be shopped elsewhere since Netflix is the studio. I haven’t explored that and that would be something that would be easy to figure out in a phone call if that’s even possible to take it elsewhere. But I just don’t know if it is, since they own it outright,” he said.

Few comedies at Netflix have lasted beyond three seasons, with American Vandal, All About the Washingtons, Haters Back Off!, Lady Dynamite, Disjointed and Love all ending after three seasons or fewer. Earlier this year, perennial awards contender Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt aired its fourth and final season, an ending that was announced ahead of time. Other longer-lasting comedies include Grace and Frankie, the streamer’s longest-running live-action scripted comedy series, which was renewed earlier this year for a sixth season; Arrested Development, which recently debuted the second half of its fifth season, having been picked up from Fox but airing only two new seasons on the streaming platform thus far, the first of which dropped in 2013; and more broader-skewing fare like The Ranch, which was renewed last fall for a fourth season, and Fuller House, which is set to end with its upcoming fifth season.

Biography Edit

Mr. Ball Legs is an, approximately fist sized, liver-coloured, organic “ball”, which a person throws up with the insane amount of vomit in the transformation process into an undead person. Mr. Ball Legs appears very early in the show in episode 1/S1, called So Then a Bat or a Monkey, when Sheila Hammond suddenly falls ill and throws up the then not closer defined red organ-like tissue. Sheila turns into a Zombie and Joel Hammond packs her meaty ball up in episode2/S1 We Can’t Kill People! and takes it to virologist Dr. Hasmedi at City College. His attempt to discover more about the strange “organ” almost brings him a lot closer to psychiatry.

Later in the show, it turns out, that everytime, when somebody is turned into a Zombie, the person will throw up one of those red meaty balls (plus an enormously insane amount of vomit). Sheila’s “Mr. Ball Legs” spends his first days in a lot of olive oil and then in the Hammond’s freezer, because the Hammonds don’t exactly know what to do with it, but still hope, it might help in a cure for Sheila.

It turns out, that Ramona from the Rite Aid store, is a Zombie, too. From her, the audience will learn, that the ball is actually a creature, which also grows spider-like legs and has disturbingly many eyes all over its body (mostly at night).

Joel Hammond never liked Mr Ball Legs, but he grew on him. In the huge cliffhanger of the last episode of S3, the ball climbes into Joel’s ear and makes Sheila finally turn Joel with a bite.

More Edit

  • The character Ed Thune is turned into a Zombie, but then goes feral, so Joel has to kill him and his Mr. Ball Legs. Inside, the red balls are also filled with black goo.
  • In their attempt to find meat for Sheila, the Hammonds try to kill a man named Loki Hayes, but instead turn him. Lokis Mr. Ball Legs also ends up in the freezer, when Loki finally is killed.
  • Mr. Ball Legs is also called “Mala Draga” in the old serbian book.
  • The creature appears on the shields of the Knights of Serbia and in the last episode on the uniforms of Sheila’s followers.
  • The creature will fall ill and eventually die, when their host is not near. That’s why the Hammond’s eventually call Ramona, who missed her little “friend”, too.

What’s The Red Ball In ‘Santa Clarita Diet’? Mr. Ball Legs Could Be The Key To Unlocking The Virus

Spoilers ahead for Santa Clarita Diet Season 2. Now that Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 has hit Netflix, fans already have so many questions about exactly how the virus works that turned Sheila (and now, we know, a few others) into a zombie. Yeah, it started with the clams, but there’s obviously more to it than that. Question number one: What’s the red ball in Santa Clarita Diet? And what does it have to do with the undead?

Unfortunately, this is a question fans have had since the end of Season 1, and Season 2 hasn’t given us too many answers. Obviously, the red ball came out of Sheila when she threw up in the first episode, so it has to be important where this illness is concerned. And now, it continues to play a role in this season, too, even if it’s not quite clear yet what it could mean.

Now, though, we do know a few details that can help solve the mystery. The red ball is the common thread that connects the undead — everyone who’s been infected has coughed up their own. There’s something about it that has to directly connected to this virus causing people to die and come back to life, but what is it?

Saeed Adyani / Netflix

We also know that the red ball may or may not be alive. Although Sheila’s ball hasn’t changed since she’s kept it in the freezer all this time, that’s not the case if you leave it out and exposed to room temperature air. Both Ramona and Ed Thune’s red balls grew spider-like legs and are able to move around, like Ramona’s did in the cage and Ed’s did in his house. It’s definitely not an inanimate object — it truly seems like it’s alive.

It’s hard to tell exactly what it is, or what allows it to grow and continue thriving outside of the body once a zombie vomits it out. For it to live independently of its host’s body, you’d almost assume that it also doesn’t need any people or care to continue existing. It may have come directly from the clams, or it may be something that forms when eating the clams creates the right circumstances for it to grow. And now that we know it grows legs, what else can it do? After all, it’s only been a few weeks since Sheila first contracted the virus, so these red balls haven’t been around long enough for viewers to truly know what they’re capable of.

Saeed Adyani / Netflix

It’s also interesting to think about what it could mean for Sheila that she chose to keep her red ball in the cold, keeping it from growing legs like Ramona’s and Ed’s did. Is that going to save her, or is that going to be something she ends up regretting?

There’s also a chance it could be an organ that develops when someone is infected with the virus, or it could be a part of her that she’s lost that causes her to crave human flesh and lose all her inhibitions. What would happen if Sheila decided to swallow the ball again? Would it go back to wherever it came from and cure her? It’s a disgusting thought, but it could work. And at this point, it seems like the Hammonds are up for trying anything to keep all of this under control.

The only way we’ll get the real answer to the deal with the red ball is in future episodes (as long as Netflix renews the show for a third season, of course). But figuring out exactly what the red ball is and why every single zombie has one could be the key to figuring out how to reverse the disease. And if not, well, it does make a kind of cute pet.

“Santa Clarita Diet” isn’t getting a fourth season. Less than a month after the zombie-themed sitcom’s third season launched, Netflix has canceled the show starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant.

“Like our audience, we were all-in on Sheila and Joel. Their relationship, in the face of incredible adversity, was inspiring to write and to watch. Mostly, they were funny, which in a comedy is important,” creator and executive producer Victor Fresco and executive producer Tracy Katsky said in a joint statement. “Working with Drew and Tim, along with the immensely talented Liv and Skyler, was a joy and a once in a lifetime experience.”

Netflix abruptly cancels ‘Santa Clarita Diet,’ says no to Season 4

Less than a month after releasing its third season, Netflix has abruptly announced the cancellation of its hit dark comedy Santa Clarita Diet. Fans will not get a fourth season. The news has shocked viewers and critics alike, particularly in light of season three’s extremely high reviews following its release on March 29. The news follows Netflix’s controversial cancellation of One Day At a Time.

Santa Clarita Diet is the latest victim in Netflix’s trend of ending original shows after relatively short periods of time. The company nixed One Day at a Time after three seasons. The decisions sting for fans who then see the streaming company turn around and save other shows, such as Lucifer, from cancellation.

The dark Netflix comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant followed the story of an increasing number of people who contracted some sort of zombie virus, compelling them to eat other humans. The show has been widely praised for its fresh take on the tired genre, as well as its rapid-fire comedy.

The show enjoys a solid overall rating of 89% on Rotten Tomatoes, which blessed season three with a perfect 100% score. According to Google’s user ratings, viewers have given the show a 96% positive rating. Fans have already mobilized and started an online campaign requesting that Netflix give them a fourth season and proper closure.

Netflix has developed a reputation among some customers who have expressed concerns about the company’s tendenacy toward giving its shows relatively short lives. Previous lamented cancellations include Marvel’s Daredevil, and Bloodline.

Sadly, because Santa Clarita Diet is a Netflix original, it is extremely unlikely we’ll see it picked up by another network.

Will Abby & Eric Date On ‘Santa Clarita Diet’? Season 2 Strengthened Their Bond

Spoilers ahead for Santa Clarita Diet Season 2. As much fun as it is watching Joel and Sheila Hammond attempt to live their lives as normally as possible despite the fact that one of them is a zombie on Santa Clarita Diet, it’s just as fun seeing their daughter, Abby, cope with being a teenager and having an undead mom at the same time — especially when she’s joined by her best friend Eric. But will Abby and Eric date on Santa Clarita Diet? After the way Season 2 ended, it seems like it really could happen.

In Season 1, there was definitely the feeling that something could happen between them, but it was hard to tell if that’s the direction the show was going to go. Now, it’s obvious that there are romantic feelings there, but will they actually end up together? In Season 2, fans got to see how each of them reacted when the other started dating someone, and let’s just say there was a ton of jealousy involved.

Thanks to their jealous moments, much of Season 2 seemed to be building up to Abby and Eric getting together, fortunately, all of the anticipation paid off. They finally kissed for the first time, but it’s hard to tell if this will change things for them permanently or if they’ll both explain it away next season.

Giphy

It’s easy to see why fans would be rooting for them, though. After all, Eric is the only person who knows that Abby’s mom is undead, and he’s been actively involved in keeping Sheila’s condition from getting any worse. Like Abby said, it’s hard for her to get close to anyone else because there’s so much about her daily life that she can’t tell them. It’s hard enough being a teenager, but it has to be even harder when your parents are killing people and, you know, keeping talking severed heads in your basement. How could she possibly date anyone else if she can’t even bring any of that up?

Now that the Hammonds don’t have to move — and are presumably safe, being that Ann thinks that Sheila may or may not be directly sent from God to do his work on earth — there’s so much potential for something to develop for these two. Since they’re finally over that weird dance they kept doing where they both kept acting like they didn’t like each other when it was so obvious that they did, they can be honest. Besides, how cute was it when Lisa was dressing Abby up for her date? Yeah, she’s a bit obnoxious, but Abby and Eric dating could lead to more scenes like that one.

And judging by the friendship that Eric and Abby have, they should be able to overcome it if things don’t work out — at least, hopefully they will, because their bond is so much fun to watch on the show. Anyone who’s ever been a teenager can probably relate to how fragile relationships can be at that age, especially ones that are between two people who have had feelings for each other. But with Abby and Eric, it seems to go deeper than that… maybe because he’s actually helping her family survive a life or death situation? That probably changes things a bit.

Seeing Abby develop as a character and really come into her own is one of the best parts of Season 2, and now, adding Eric into the mix as her love interest gives her story even more potential for future seasons. Everyone who watches the show can probably agree that more of these two sharing a screen is a must in Season 3.

    “You okay?” Abby asks, and he looks over at her.

    Eric is very, very self-aware of the fact that he’s the Disney Princess in his own life story and Abby is the Disney Prince- he’s the smart, gentle person who constantly needs his ass saved from undead people, while Abby is a badass hero who is the one to save his ass over and over again. From today with the belt to other times with various bullies and shit, Abby is the hero and he’s the best friend (or love interest, maybe, but Eric’s steadfastly not thinking about that right now).

    “Why would you ask that?” he asks, casually. Casual- yeah, that’s a good decision. He can do that.

    “You did nearly just get kidnapped by an undead woman who was going to break your legs and turn you into her slave,” Abby says, “And I’m guessing that probably fucked with you a bit.”

    She’s got a point. She usually does.

    The thing about Eric Bemis is that he is inherently loveable. Whether he’s walking around the hallways of his high school clutching both his backpack straps or helping the Hammonds scrub viscera off their immaculate marble top kitchen island, there are one hundred and one qualities about him that would make anyone fall madly and wildly in love with him. And those qualities are precisely Abby’s problem.
