Santa Clarita Diet Season 3: Release Date
Given that the renewal was announced earlier this year, we’ll have to wait for a while till we hear something more about the show. The script writing for Santa Clarita Diet is currently in works. It is scheduled to be released in 2019. The zombie comedy will return in 2019 with 10, half an hour episodes.
The first Season came out on February 3, 2017, while the second Season was aired on March 23, 2018. With a gap of more a year between the two, Season 3 should be expected to out after March 2019.
Santa Clarita Diet Season 3: Plot Details
Writer Victor Fresco has confirmed that he’s writing Season 3. He’s talked of how he wants to see more of Paul and Marsha, the couple who made their presence in Season 2.
“We like the idea that there are other people out there – not the government – that is looking into this, and it’s a threat to Sheila and obviously to Joel also, so we’ll track that story into season three,” Victor Fresco said.
Sheila played by Barrymore didn’t die at the end of Season 2. We only saw her throw up while she and her husband were showing the house to buyers. Joel (Timothy Olyphant), her husband accompanied her. She then throws up a fleshy red ball which looks like an organ. Sheila ends up killing Gary (Nathan Fillion) who forces himself on her.
Finally, they have a serum to cure Sheila who then ends up chained in her basement to avoid hurting her family. Joel ends up locked up in a mental institute, held for trying to steal an old woman’s vomit.
Santa Clarita Diet Season 3: Cast
Sheila played by Drew Barrymore, Joel played Timothy Olyphant, Abby (Liv Hewson) and Eric (Skyler Gisondo) will return to Santa Clarita Diet Season 3. Natalie Morales who plays Mary Elizabeth will also be back. Ramona, as we saw, left the town in Season 2, so I suppose she won’t be back.
Shalita Grant will return in Season 3 of Santa Clarita Diet. Grant will portray the role of an FBI agent Tess Rogers.
