Will there be another series of iZombie?
The CW hasn’t confirmed yet whether iZombie will be returning for a season five.
However, the show has a strong teen following and has previously been nominated for a number of Teen Choice and MTV Awards in the past.
If the programme gets the green light from the US broadcaster, season five could be released as soon as next year before hitting Netflix in the UK.
iZombie season premiere dates have previously varied from February to April to October, which means it’s hard to determine when season five will air.
Season four of iZombie aired on February 26, 2018 before dropping on Netflix the following day for British viewers to watch.
Episodes of season four of iZombie drop on a weekly basis on the streaming service.
There are a total of 13 episodes in iZombie season four, which is the same number as the first and third runs.
Based on this, it seems likely that season five could also have 13 instalments.
Who will be in iZombie season 5?
Rose McIver will be back in the lead role of former medical student-turned-zombie Liv Moore.
The show, which is very loosely based on the DC Comics series of the same name, would also likely see the return of Clive Babineaux who portrays police detective Malcolm Goodwin.
It seems probable that Supergirl actor Rahul Kohl will be reprising his part as Liv’s friend Ravi Chakrabarti.
Meanwhile, Robert Buckley is fairly likely to be back as Major Lilywhite, Liv’s former fiancé.
However, it’s been confirmed that Prison Break and Oz star Robert Knepper won’t be back for season five of iZombie.
The actor portrays Angus DeBeers in iZombie and had been part of the show since the first season before getting elevated to a regular in the most recent run.
But his character won’t be any follow ups with The CW president Mark Pedowitz telling Slash Film earlier this year: “Robert only had a one year deal anyway. His character had a definitive path.
“You’ll find out when you watch the series what happens. That was decided way ahead of time, had nothing to do with the allegations.”
Knepper faced a number of sexual assault claims last year, leading The CW to conduct an investigation.
Following the inquiry, the broadcaster released a statement which read: “We were deeply concerned about recent allegations regarding Robert Knepper. As a result, we conducted an internal inquiry with some of the cast and crew of iZombie.
“We found no evidence of wrongdoing on the set of the show. We have taken and will continue to take appropriate measures to ensure the safety and well-being of all involved, which is our top priority.”
What will happen in iZombie season 5?
The plot of iZombie season five would depend on the events of the current run.
iZombie follows Liv Moore, whose life is turned upside down when she’s bitten by a member of the undead while at a party.
After becoming infected, Liv tries to balance her cravings for human flesh with trying to keep her condition a secret.
Season three ended with the world discovering the existence of zombies.
The current run focuses on Seattle, which has been transformed into New Seattle where the living and the undead work together.
Despite the supposed harmony in the walled city, an anti-zombie hate group has sprung up and could cause problems.
iZombie season 4 drops on Netflix weekly on Tuesdays.
