iZombie Season 3 Announced for Blu-ray and DVD
iZombie is a lot of fun, with some great performances, and I’m glad to hear there are already plans for a fourth season. In the meantime, all 13 episodes of season 3 will be available on DVD and Blu-ray (via the Warner Archive, as with Lucifer) on October 3 as iZombie: The Complete Third Season.
Rose McIver plays Liv Moore, a medical examiner who uses her unique state to solve crimes in partnership with police detective Clive Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) and fellow doctor Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli). Her roommate (Aly Michalka) is involved with another former zombie/drug dealer (David Anders), and her ex-fiance (Robert Buckley) is coping with having been a zombie but recovered. The series is loosely based on a comic by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred.
Liv is a zombie, and to keep her mental state coherent, she has to eat brains. Great job for it, and since she sees visions of the brain owner’s former life, she can help find out who killed them. Except she also takes on aspects of their personalities, my favorite part of the show. It combines a weekly mystery procedural with an overarching fantasy plot involving how the zombies came to be and protecting humans from them.
This season, Liv ingested a dominatrix, an office gossip, a meditation guru, a self-obsessed drunk DJ, a YouTube daredevil, an RPG gamer, and a conspiracy nut, among others. While the overall season arc deals with a military contractor whose mercenaries are zombies, these individual personality changes make each episode entertaining while demonstrating McIver’s acting range. You can watch a few of the recent episodes at the CW website.
The DVD set has a list price of $24.98 and will include the following special features (also included on the Blu-ray):
- The 2016 Comic-Con panel
- Deleted scenes
Here are the 13 episode titles:
