With Season 3 of The CW’s comedy-horror series “iZombie” confirmed, not only the fans but the cast members are also looking forward to the upcoming storyline. Some of the actors from the show revealed how they reacted when executive producer Dan Etheridge told them about the renewal of the series.
According to Christian Daily, Robert Buckley, who plays the role of Major in the series, said that he got worried when Etheridge called him as according to him, it was very unusual of the executive producer to call the cast members randomly.
“My first thought was that obviously I’m fired or he’s telling me that, ‘Hey, it’s been a real ride with Major, but now it’s over. And then it was funny he told me the good news and he was like, ‘What’s with you guys? Every single one of you answered the phone with fear and thought that something terrible was happening to you,'” Buckley said.
David Anders, who plays another prominent character, Blaine, said that when he received the call, he thought that Etheridge wanted to wish him on his birthday. However, it turned out that there was good news waiting for him.
TV Insider quoted Anders as saying, “We got the news around 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time, and our call time wasn’t until 1:00 in the afternoon. The news was out at 11 a.m., so most of them found out before we got the chance to tell them. [But] from the reports I’ve gotten, it’s a very festive mood.”
TV Line reported that Malcolm Goodwin, who portrays the character of Clive, hinted at his character’s future in the upcoming season. According to the website, Clive might have to get used to the fact that his favourite singer, Rob Thomas, had been killed and it was he who discovered the Romero Zombies.
Goodwin described his character as a “real person in the real world” who still has to get used to a lot of things that happened in Season 2’s final episode, titled “Salivation Army.”
“iZombie” Season 3 is expected to air in late 2016 or early 2017. However, no exact date has been announced by either the show’s creators or the producers.
