Critic Reviews for iZombie Season 2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

It's going to be an ongoing attempt at achieving the perfect balance, and a lot of the new ideas - including Blaine and Major both being able to detect the presence of zombies - are promising.

Oct 7, 2015 | Full Review…

The show does so many things well. The performances, the finely drawn characters, the fast, funny banter, the thoughtful consideration of class, the inspired stabs at consumerism and materialism.

Oct 7, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Season 2 takes all the cliffhangers from the first season finale and builds spectacularly on them.

Jun 8, 2016 | Full Review…

Season two was great television, simply put. With the performances, clever writing and action that holds emotional impact, iZombie isn't just as good and entertaining not just against The CW lineup... but against the television slate in general

Apr 18, 2016 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

iZombie is having a strong second season, with Rose McIver's Liv Moore scarfing down brains and solving crimes with ever-evolving gusto.

Oct 20, 2015 | Full Review…

It's a strong opening that reminds viewers of the darkness so central to the series, while also emphasizing the relationships and humor that make iZombie so engaging and watchable.

Oct 20, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Underneath the witty banter and crime-solving of iZombie is a darkness that threatens everyone as long as zombies exist. And considering it's right there in the name, it doesn't look like that darkness will be evaporating anytime soon.

Oct 8, 2015 | Full Review…

Even if iZombie has yet to become a drama that keeps viewers on the edge of their seat, it's still very watchable.

Oct 8, 2015 | Full Review…

Witty without being annoying and funny without resorting to obnoxiousness, everything in iZombie just clicks so beautifully - from its just-quirky-enough mythology to some truly gut-punch dialogue - that only the most cynical will be able to resist.

Oct 7, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The show manages to wear so many hats at once and all of them fit well. It flips between comedy, procedural, and drama with ease.

Oct 7, 2015 | Rating: 8.7/10 | Full Review…

The story of Liv Moore has become one that's easy to recommend to anyone who enjoys zombies, murder mysteries, or a well-honed sarcastic quip.

Oct 7, 2015 | Full Review…

I will say that the premiere did a flawless job of weaving an otherwise small time murder case into Liv's personal identity crisis.

    Not too predictable, had me and my sister binge-watching through it in a week ish? Liv's relationship turns and twists don't have you annoyed as can be common for similar shows.
  • Mar 16, 2017
    Its been a long time since I've been in love with a tv series. This show is so entertaining.. It combines comedy, suspense, Love, and action. Even better, they successfully executed the element of surprise. I did not expect it to get real, and it got really real on the last season.. Definitely a must watch.
