Ravi (Rahul Kohli) will make a medical discovery in Season 3 of “iZombie,” but it isn’t the cure that will bring Liv (Rose McIver), Major (Robert Buckley) and Blaine (David Anders) back to the side of the living.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Rob Thomas revealed that “Ravi will stumble upon a recipe to make zombie visions more vivid and longer lasting.” While the significance of this discovery remains unclear, it’s inclusion into story will probably be used as a plot device to allow the show’s zombie characters to imbibe a particular personality from brains not just for a single episode but for multiple episodes.
As for the cure for zombiism, Ravi will continue to perfect it next season, but Thomas reminded fans during the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel that once the medical examiner succeeds in finding the cure, that would mean the end of the show. So viewers can expect more test runs, but little success and perhaps more shocking side effects.
When not working on the cure, Ravi will be spending his time dealing with the love triangle between him, Blaine and Peyton (Aly Michalka). “This triangle exists and continues to exist this season," Michalka said at Comic-Con.
A person from Ravi’s past will also make his Season 3 storyline more interesting. Thomas revealed at Comic-Con that the woman who fired Ravi from the CDC will make an appearance next season.
In related news, TVLine revealed earlier this week that the “Goldbergs” actress Natalie Alyn Lind will guest-star in Season 3 as Winslow Sutcliffe, an entitled and somewhat bratty girl who plays an important role in Liv and Clive’s (Malcolm Goodwin) investigation into her best friend’s murder. Lind’s other acting credits include “Gotham,” “Murder in the First” and “Criminal Minds.”
"iZombie" season 3 will debut at midseason on The CW.
