Will there be another series of Santa Clarita Diet?
Netflix has not yet confirmed whether there will be another series of Santa Clarita Diet.
A fourth series will depend on the ratings, something which Netflix does not publicly reveal.
The fourth series of Santa Clarita Diet will also depend on show creator Victor Fresco’s decision.
Barrymore’s production company Flower Films is also behind Santa Clarita Diet, so as long as Barrymore is still on board another series is highly likely.
Santa Clarita Diet season three has received mainly positive reviews, so finger’s crossed a fourth season will be picked up.
The horror-comedy series also has an average rating of 7/5.10 on popular review site Rotten Tomatoes.
The critics have also spoken and many have been praising the latest series of Santa Clarita Diet.
Haleigh Foutch from Collider said: “‘Santa Clarita Diet season 3’s delicious delights confirm it’s the best horror comedy on TV.”
Lucy Mangan from The Guardian gave Santa Clarita season three four stars out of five.
Mangan added: “This tasty zomcom is back with more bite.”
Kevin Yeoman from Screenrant said: “Few shows excel at being so unabashedly weird as Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet, and fewer still manage to blend the inherent weirdness of something like, say, a suburban zombie sitcom, with humour that functions outside the immediate predicament of Sheila (played by Drew Barrymore) and Joel (Timothy Olyphant) Hammond — the suburban couple dealing with matters of the undead.”
The finale of season three also left many unanswered questions and loose ends so it looks likely season four will be on the cards.
For example, is Joel undead like Shiela or has he been overruled by Ball Legs?
Season four will also hopefully explain what Mr Ball Legs actually wants.
Abby and Eric’s relationship took an unexpected turn at the end of season three and viewers are desperate to know what will happen next.
If a fourth season is given the green light, it is likely to premiere in March 2020.
The previous three seasons have been released every year in March since 2017.
News of season three was not revealed until May 2018, so season four could be announced as early as March 2019.
This article will be updated when more information is available.
