Critic Consensus: iZombie's fourth season boldly flips the board on the series narrative, injecting fresh blood into this amiable corpse and promising that it won't go stiff anytime soon.

News & Interviews for iZombie: Season 4
The start of the new season hits a lot of bumps as it tries to simultaneously show how everything has changed and nothing has, as if the show is having second thoughts about the new Seattle - or at least wants to very carefully ease the audience into it.
With well-developed characters and impressive writing, how did we ever doubt this show?
iZombie has found success by taking daring leaps of faith before, and even if this storyline doesn't ultimately come together in the long run, a few mistakes likely won't hurt a show that's as reliable as iZombie has proven itself to be.
iZombie entered this season while still retaining its signature comedic style (that zombie defense contractor is named Fillmore Graves, get it?) and strong writing.
Audience Reviews for iZombie: Season 4
iZombie goes from mediocre to just plain bad in Season 4. After Zombie Seattle is turned into a walled off city Chase Graves becomes a de facto military governor and attempts to keep the peace between humans and zombies, and prevent the US military from attacking; meanwhile Liv smuggles in humans and turns them into zombies, leading to overcrowding and starvation (and she's the "hero"). The show's attempt to cast Liv as a hero fighting for human/zombie co-existence is total crap makes no sense, and her turning people into zombies is a complete 180 for the character; who has been searching for a zombie cure since the beginning of the series. On the other hand, the subplot about Angus McDonough becoming the leader of a zombie religious cult is incredibly interesting and has a lot of potential, and Robert Knepper does an excellent job with the character; making him a captivating villain that's dangerous and charismatic. But that never gets explored in much depth. Everything in Season 4 of iZombie is upside down, which is probably why the CW is making its next season its last.
