Netflix Cancels ‘Santa Clarita Diet’

I’m really starting to get annoyed with Netflix. First, the streaming service axed One Day At A Time and now this. Santa Clarita Diet has been canceled after three seasons. The announcement comes a month after the 10-episode third season arrived.

“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,” the streamer said in a statement. “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.”

Drew Barrymore also chimed in. “Of all of the characters I’ve ever been, Sheila Hammond is one of my favorites. She and Joel were an amazing couple, who had shared goals. And I am lucky to have worked along side Tim Olyphant. It was an honor to get to do something so delightful. Sheila lives forever in me. And I am grateful to Victor Fresco, who created a world so unique,” she stated in a statement.

The series came from Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted, Sean Saves the World). It also starred Liv Hewson, Skyler Gisondo, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Natalie Morales, Richard T. Jones, Alan Tudyk, and Nathan Fillion.
