iZombie: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

iZombie: Season 1 (2015)




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

Tv Season Info

Seattle medical resident Olivia "Liv" Moore (Rose McIver) becomes a zombie and loses her ambition until she begins working in the city morgue where she eats victims' brains for sustenance that also help her maintain her humanity in the first season of this sci-fi crime drama, based on the DC Comics series of the same name. Liv soon learns that her new diet enables her to experience a victim's memories that can be used to help solve the person's murder. She lets her boss, medical examiner Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli) in on her secret, and together they embark on crime-solving missions. Complicating matters further is a former drug dealer (David Anders) turned zombie who is murdering homeless people for their brains in order to sell them to fellow zombies. Robert Buckley and Malcolm Goodwin also star.

Critic Reviews for iZombie: Season 1

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (26)

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

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.

Top Critic

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