Critics Consensus

An amusing variation on the zombie trend, iZombie is refreshingly different, if perhaps too youth-oriented to resonate with adult audiences.

Critic Reviews for iZombie Season 1

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (28)

iZombie is a delightfully ironic take on the horror genre. While as a police procedural it's far more Veronica Mars than Rookie Blues.

Oct 18, 2017 | Full Review…

Show creator Rob Thomas' touch on iZombie is a marriage of his tenacious super-sleuth Veronica Mars and his irrepressible love god Cupid (remember that 2009 Jeremy Piven gem?) with just the right mix of sleuthing and snogging.

Two words you don't normally find in the same sentence: "zombie" and "delightful."

[The] dramedy ... proves there are still some clever ideas to be had about the walking dead.

She's also as appealing as anyone who eats human brains for a living could possibly be.

The CW has another winner in iZombie, which plops zombies in a police procedural and adds the wit of Veronica Mars.

...brain-eating entertainment for tweens...

Sep 17, 2020 | Full Review…

[O]ne of the most promising, confident, fun new dramas of its kind, crime or zombie-centric, in recent memory.

Mar 5, 2020 | Full Review…

On the charming new iZombie, Rose McIver plays a former medical student bummed that she's become a zombie.

Mar 17, 2015 | Full Review…

With witty writing, a likable leading lady, and a terrific cast, iZombie is full of life, and one of the season's best new shows.

Mar 17, 2015 | Full Review…

The dialogue, the world and the cast are all enjoyable, and the show simply exudes potential.

Mar 17, 2015 | Full Review…

It's the Walking Dead/Quincy/Psych mashup you didn't know you wanted.

Audience Reviews for iZombie: Season 1

  • 2d ago
    The premise is clever, the lead is a cutie pie, but the social commentary made me cringe. "being girly" is talking about boys. Or the unrealistic takes on female sexuality suggesting that it's a mirror of hetero male sexuality. There were times I whispered...."Stooooooop".
  • Aug 02, 2020
    It's cast is strong and the star is hilarious and award worthy. The clever set up leads to a great show.
