Timothy Olyphant’s Santa Clarita Diet character Joel might’ve said “Til death do us part”… but does that include being undead as well?
In the new trailer for Season 2 of Netflix’s tongue-in-cheek zombie comedy — debuting Friday, March 23 — Joel’s flesh-eating wife Sheila (Drew Barrymore) is chained in the basement and trying to talk their daughter Abby (Liv Hewson) into letting her go: “Think about all the people I haven’t killed! Literally everyone in the world, except three people!” Joel pleads with Sheila to lay low and does his best to accommodate his wife’s new hobby… which means building her a plastic-covered “kill room” when he comes home to a grotesquely blood-spattered kitchen.
The trailer also promises a full menu of new guest stars in Season 2, including Joel McHale as a rival realtor, Psych‘s Maggie Lawson as his wife and Gerald McRaney as a retired Army colonel. (The Hootie and the Blowfish song on the soundtrack is a nice touch, too.) “I don’t want to stop living just because I’m undead,” Sheila exclaims — although one of her fingers flies off when she says that, so that kind of undercuts her point.
