Netflix has decided to cancel “Santa Clarita Diet” after a 3 season run on the platform.
“The world had never known a ‘zom-com’ until Santa Clarita Diet, and we’re indebted to creator Victor Fresco for bringing this idea to Netflix, to their endless credit, the incredible Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant were totally game, with an uncanny knack for comedy that brought Sheila and Joel Hammond to vibrant life, even though one of them was undead. We’re grateful to Victor, Drew, and Timothy, along with fellow executive producers Tracy Katsky, Aaron Kaplan, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell and the terrific cast, including Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo, and crew for three hilarious seasons for Netflix members to discover for years to come.” – Netflix Spokesperson
The cancelation of the show feels a bit unwarranted. I think it is safe to say Santa Clarita Diet was one of Netflix better original show. The show not only got over with Netflix user, but it was a hit with the critics as well.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, the show got better as the season progressed. I think Netflix needs to explain more on why they will cancel a show that fans and critics love that they have complete ownership of.
