Original updates follow below…
iZombie premiered Tuesday, March 17, 2015.
The CW has yet to cancel or renew iZombie for Season 2. Stay tuned as we bring you continuous updates on the cancelled/renewed status of the CW’s new zombie series.
iZOMBIE – SERIALIZED OR PROCEDURAL?
Despite being mostly procedural from the outset, promises an overarching storyline, thus raing the Season 2 renewal stakes.
The first season finale will likely end with some sort of cliffhanger with a view to setting up a potential second season. Th can work in iZombie‘s favor as it puts ‘pressure’ on the network to honor the story and not leave viewers hanging (story-we, there’s less consequence of cancelling an out-and-out procedural).
However, in the cut-throat world of TV, the network would ultimately have no qualms cancelling iZombie should the ratings/reception not satfy their expectations.
The big question for iZombie whether it can successfully balance its serial and procedural framework. Being at least part serialized gives it a different set of challenges from the NCIS’ and CSI’s of th world, with iZombie’s story and characters relying more heavily on subsequent seasons.
So while it’s not a serial beast like Fringe in terms of how far serialization evolves throughout the series, iZombie will be in fair need of a second season from a narrative standpoint.

Renew/Cancel News For All TV Shows
From executive producer Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars”), iZOMBIE makes its series debut on Tuesday, March 17, (9:00-10:00pm ET), following an all-new epode of THE FLASH (8:00-9:00pm ET). Rose McIver (“Masters of Sex,” “Once Upon A Time”) stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a rosy-cheeked, dciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out… until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. As one of the newly undead, Liv has deved a way to rest her baser urges to devour fresh human brains – she’s taken a job in the Seattle coroner’s office. In th appropriately dead-end job, she can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses that make a final stop in the morgue. Liv remains resigned to an eternity without hope or purpose, until she realizes that with every brain she consumes, she retains a portion of that person’s memories, and she begins to experience vions from the point of view of the murder victims. It’s not the same as being alive again, but at least she can find purpose in her undead extence by helping to solve the murders of those who are indeed fully dead.
