“iZombie” creator Rob Thomas has made it clear that the Season 3 of the CW series will not be the final installment of the show.
Thomas recently took to Twitter to dismiss speculations that the upcoming season of the rom-com-zom-dram series is going to be its last. “#iZombie season to be the last? No,” Thomas wrote. “All I said re: boyfriend is we don’t plan to kill third in a row. #NoBedwetting.”
The executive producer’s tweet is a direct response to a Christian Today article which suggests that the show is coming to an end this TV season “due to a drop in viewership ratings.” The website also noted that the show’s “critical reviews were not as high as they were for Season 1.”
Although the show really lost some viewers in Season 2, Thomas showed some proof that the critics actually liked “iZombie’s” sophomore run more than its debut season. “‘Furthermore… Critical reviews not as strong in Season 2?’ Man, I hate it when CHRISTIAN TODAY doubts us. #iZOMBIE,” Thomas tweeted, alongside a photo of the show’s Rotten Tomatoes ratings for both Season 1 and Season 2.
Rahul Kohli, who plays Ravi in the series, retweeted Thomas’ follow-up post, adding: “Thou shalt not bear false witness’ ...c’mon Christian Today, even I know that one.”
During the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con last July, it was revealed that Ravi will continue to work on the zombie cure next season. Thomas, however, reminded fans that once the medical examiner succeeds in making the right cure, then that would mean the end of the show. Since Season 3 is not planned to be the show’s final season, viewers can expect Ravi to conduct more test runs with little success and probably more unexpected side effects.
“iZombie” Season 3 is slated to debut midseason on The CW.
