iZombie Cast Previews Season 3's New Villains, Talks Liv/Peyton's 'Chemistry'

While some iZombie fans are counting down the days until Liv and Major’s inevitable reunion, one executive producer has another pairing on the brain: Liv and… Peyton?

“They’re both fine actresses … and their chemistry is really good,” Diane Ruggiero-Wright joked — at least we think she was joking — during the cast’s interview at TVLine’s Comic-Con suite, presented by ZTE. (For what it’s worth, star Rose McIver added that she’d be “down for a woman” as one of Liv’s love interests, so we could be just one lesbian brain away from making this dream a reality.)

In the immediate future, however, EP Rob Thomas revealed that “Liv will have a love interest this year who will not die,” thus ending her streak of dead/undead boyfriends. But before you get your hopes up too high, Thomas clarified that “the relationship will not end because of death.” In other words, it will end.

Other topics touched upon in TVLine’s interview with the iZombie crew: Liv and Clive’s “no more secrets” policy at work, a “dominatrix brain” on the menu, super-revealing flashbacks, a zombie revolution and more.

    I can’t watch the video…. is the “relationship will not end because of death” part expanded upon? Because the “In other words, it will end.” doesn’t make sense otherwise. In print, it seems like he’s just saying that death will not be the end of the relationship.

    Watching the video, I missed the mention of who was being killed early in Season 2, & was hoping they really did mean Major before they asked if anyone wasn’t rooting for him & Liv to reunite.

    Personally, I’ve been hoping since Liv turned in the pilot that we would have a show that didn’t run the whole show with “will they or won’t they” crap, & instead have a fiancee-separation that leads to a permanent separation as it may in reality.

    Also, it’s not just the times Rob covers his mouth that are tough to understand (as with the start I wrote about already).

    I just LOVE this show. As a lesbian myself I’m happy when female couples appear on my screen but not for nothing. Baiting can make me stop watching a show altogether and lesbian stunts à la sweeps serve no purpose and are annoying.
    But I think iZombie can still do the “one ep lesbian” and get away with it. The brains can give it an explanation and can be totally hilarious (Liv’s lap dance to Peyton was super funny so I’m sure it would be hilariously awkward). I’m sure if they have Liv on lesbian brain they’ll do it right.

    Adding this one on my “brains I didn’t know I wanted too see on iZombie” list haha. And OMG they NEED to do put Liv on dominatrix brain !!! Already laughing at the idea :D

    I’m excited that Clive knows, finally! Can’t wait for more Peyton on my screen and more Ravi sarcasms. I hope Liv is going to have more screentime with them.

      If the CW had any clue what “smart” meant, “Supernatural” would have been gone long ago, & replaced by a spinoff for Charlie (it would have been gone before they killed her).
