It’s admittedly rare of Netflix to pull the plug on original series after one season, but with recent cuts like The Get Down (and potentially Sense8), the safety … well, net might finally have holes. According to a new interview with Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, the streaming service might be getting a bit more strict with its renewals.
Netflix hopes you made room after a first taste of the Santa Clarita Diet, because you’ll be doing it all over again next year. The Drew Barrymore-Timothy Olyphant zombie comedy will be back for Season 2, as revealed in a new announcement teaser.
The Grinder notwithstanding, we could always stand to see Justified alum Timothy Olyphant taking on more comedy. That’s never clearer than in the latest preview for Netflix’s cannibalistic Santa Clarita Diet, as Olyphant’s Joel Hammond slowly cracks under the weight of Sheila (Drew Barrymore)’s bloody new lifestyle.
Let’s face it: no one knew quite what to do with the notion of Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant in a dark family comedy for Netflix, at least until they threw in the blood. Yes, the Santa Clarita Diet has far more going on beneath the surface, and that bloody truth comes to light in a first full trailer for the February premiere.
Netflix dropped a systemic shock on anyone anticipating Drew Barrymore and Justified alum Timothy Olyphant’s new Netflix dark comedy Santa Clarita Diet, revealing a cannibalistic and deadly twist to the premise in recent photos. Now, see for yourself in the first teaser for the premiere.
