iZombie Renewed for Season 2 at CW

iZombie Renewed

The CW is hungry for more iZombie.

The network has renewed Rob Thomas’ rookie drama for a second season, TVLine has learned.

iZombie‘s March 17 premiere notched a strong 2.3 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating. Its most recent episode drew a still-decent 1.9 mil/0.7.

The show — adapted from the comic book of the same name — stars Once Upon a Time‘s Rose McIver as morgue worker-slash-brain-eater Liv. The Season 1 finale airs June 9.

    Yes!!!!!

  2. alex says:

    good news, guess that’s the final nail in the coffin for the messengers, if it was getting renewed it would have been announced just now.

  3. Matt C. says:

    Yay! I’ve only seen the first 2 episodes but I really liked what I saw. I’ll definitely get all caught up by the time season 2 starts. As a longtime Veronica Mars fan, I have 100% support for Rob Thomas and his projects, so I’m happy for him.

  4. LE says:

    Yes!!!! This show is really good :). Now I’m curious if it will be on the fall schedule and episode count.

  5. Steven says:

    Awesome news!

  6. The Jury is still out on The Messengers, Alex, plus do keep in mind, it’s on a Friday(typically the weakest night in views).. & that it’s only 3 episodes in. Give it some time. As we get closer to the Season Finale and the #’s are tallied, we will know for sure

    • Carolinagirl says:

      Really enjoying The Messengers so hoping for a renewal announcement soon.

      • brandydanforth81 says:

  14. Dean says:

    I’m surprised then again when 100 had steady ratings and it got renewed.

  15. valhea2015 says:

    cool

  16. Rachel says:

    Yes yes yes!!!!

  17. valhea2015 says:

    cool!

  18. YES, YES,YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. So excited about this…was hooked before they brought on Bradley James but am addicted now.

    • Jules says:

      Exact same here, loved it from the start, and then they add Prince/King Arthur, definitely not leaving now :D

  20. Yoko says:

    good decision, fun show!

  21. Barkdull says:

    I really like the messengers, adds to thoughts about the last days,along with other programs.

  22. Mr. Tran K says:

    BEST. NEWS. EVER. I’m wondering if The Messengers is going to be a “goner” soon.

  23. Chris lacey says:

    Love it great meal ideas

  24. jc says:

    Omggg yes. Please make bradley james a series regular next season. And also bring in the gay wereterrier. I don’t know why he wasn’t added this season but we need him on the show for representation.

  25. Bwhit says:

    Yes! I watched it for Robert Buckley but have stayed because the rest of the cast is awesome as well.

  26. Jessica says:

    That’s good seen every episode so far and I love it. Great show deserves a renewal

  27. Carolinagirl says:

    Yippee!!! Love this show!

  28. arianeb says:

    It was inevitable. iZombie is getting the 3rd highest demo ratings on the CW network behind Flash and Arrow. I predict full season order and keeping the successful Flash/iZombie Tuesdays for a full season.

    If I were in charge of CW, I’d schedule Reign/Jane the Virgin on Mondays, Flash/iZombie on Tuesday, Arrow/The 100 on Wednesday, The Originals/Supernatural on Thursday, and The Vampire Diaries/reality programming on Fridays.

    • alex says:

      you fail to take into account the new shows that will be airing in the fall as well.

    • Arvin says:

      LOL Reign is gonna bomb on Mondays. It’s already bombing on Thursdays. I say move it to summer along side flop BATB.

      • arianeb says:

        This is just my opinion schedule, Pairing Reign and Jane the Virgin could be marketed as “romantic monday”. As has been mentioned, some of the renewed shows are going to get smaller orders, and I suspect Reign as one of them. The 100 will be another as it works best in small chunks. Supernatural and TVD are institutions probably nearing the end of their runs.
        iZombie is a big hit comparatively speaking.

  29. Drew says:

    Woohoo!
    So there will be pretty much no new shows then, right? Almost everything is coming back.

    • brandydanforth81 says:

      There will be three or four new shows.Pedowitz said some of what’s renewed will be summer/Midseason with shorter seasons

  30. AddieM says:

    Thank you CW..this show is awesome

  31. Julian says:

    Now I’m worried for The Messengers, but happy for iZombie. Love Rose McIver

  32. j says:

    YESSS Been waiting on this news foreverrrrrrrr

  33. william says:

  34. Bob Genghis Khan says:

    Yay! Was just watching episode 8 thinking I do hope they renew

  35. Kristina says:

    Very cool! I wasn’t super excited about this show but turns out it’s a lot of fun to watch.

  36. leo paul simon says:

    awesome,the show Is very well written.the last show where her boss is bitten was very cool

  37. buttercupp85 says:

    YES! Usually I don’t like watching the first season of anything, because I get super into it and then it gets cancelled…but I couldn’t help myself with this one… So glad it’s renewed.

    And for those people talking about the messengers, I tried watching the first episode and literally fell asleep and am not bothered to try again. But who knows…maybe I’ll warm up to it.

  38. April says:

    Omg at last night’s episode. The ending made me scream at my tv wanting more. I can’t wait for the next episode.

  39. Olivia says:

    Great news!

  40. Oh GREAT news, I literally went YES and pumped my fist at reading this in my e-mail, I love this show, its fun to watch, puts a new spin on the Zombie genre, hope its ratings go up next season, so we can have a 3rd, and then a 4th and 5th too, at least!

  41. Cristina says:

    Yay!!!

  42. schu says:
