Stephenie Meyer is an “iZombie” fan!
The 42-year-old writer, best known for her vampire romance novel series “Twilight,” revealed her love for the CW rom-com-zom-dram series in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly. When asked what TV show doesn’t get its due, Meyer answered, “iZombie.” The Connecticut-born novelist said that she finds the Rose McIver-led series humorous and sentimental at the same time.
“The writing on this show is so sharp and funny, but it also has made me sob in a gross, gooey fashion on two occasions,” said Meyer. “Endearing lead, beautiful men, delicious-looking brain preparations — it really has it all.”
“Please watch, and then let’s discuss,” added the novelist, whose latest book “The Chemist” was released on Tuesday, Nov. 8.
Shortly after finding out Meyer’s love for “iZombie,” series co-creator Rob Thomas took to Twitter to express his gratitude to the bestselling author. “If you know #StephenieMeyer (#Twilight, #TheChemist), please thank her for the very kind words about #iZOMBIE in @EW. They made me #Twihard,” Thomas tweeted.
Season 3 of “iZombie” will debut at midseason on The CW. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times at the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) in July, Thomas said that “a lot of Season 3” is going to be about Liv figuring out whether she’s Team Zombie or Team Humanity.
In the Season 2 finale, Fillmore Graves CEO Vivian Stoll (Andrea Savage) asked Liv to join her movement to make Seattle the capital of zombie homeland. But since Liv has just met Vivian and doesn’t even know what her motives are, fans shouldn’t expect a decision from Liv at the start of the new installment.
“Liv is very conflicted [at beginning of the upcoming season],” McIver said at the show’s SDCC panel earlier this year. “[Vivian’s plan is] a military operation. This is a bunch of zombies she didn't know about. ... It definitely has a sinister feel about it. [Good thing, Liv] has a whole lot of people to talk to about it to help make considered decisions.”
