iZombie is orbiting Veronica Mars again.
Exec producer Rob Thomas — the brainchild behind the current and former CW dramas — has tapped Mars grad Adam Rose to appear in the Season 2 premiere, airing Oct. 6. Thomas stealthily broke the news during an interview in TVLine’s Comic-Con suite earlier this month (see video, below).
Rose — whose Mars character, Max, crushed on Tina Majorino’s Mac in Season 3 — will play Byron McCoy, a sensitive hipster prone to wearing ironic t-shirts and passionate about the arts. Byron may have information on a recent murder.
This is the third Veronica Mars vet Thomas has reunited with on iZombie, joining Season 1 guests Percy Daggs III and Ryan Hansen.
