Netflix Renews ‘Santa Clarita Diet’ for a Third Season

Right from Deadline, Netflix has greenlit a third season for Santa Clarita Diet, the dark comedy television series starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant.

Set to be 10 episodes, the third season of SCD is slated to launch in 2019. The entire main cast of the show are set to return, including Barrymore, Olyphant, Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo.

Created by Victor Fresco, SCD centers around Joel (Olyphant) and Sheila (Barrymore), husband and wife realtors leading somewhat discontented lives in the Los Angeles, CA suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenage daughter Abby (Hewson). Circumstances change dramatically when Sheila goes through an unexpected transformation sending their lives down a road of death and destruction but in a good way for the family.

Coming from Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and Tracy Katsky’s Kapital-based KatCo, the renewal arrives less a month-and-a-half after the series’ 10-episode second season was released on March 23. As was the case with the previous season, the show’s writers already have begun working on stories and scripts for next round of episodes.

Fresco also serves as showrunner and executive producer with Barrymore through her Flower Films banner. Netflix is the studio currently streaming SCD.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
