Santa Clarita Diet Creator Wants To Make A Fourth Season Of Netflix Series

Santa Clarita Diet Creator Wants To Make A Fourth Season Of Netflix Series

We loved to sink our teeth into a Santa Clarita Diet binge on Netflix and we were gutted when the popular series was cancelled by the streaming giant last year.

But much like Sheila, Santa Clarita Diet could be coming back to life once more as showrunner Victor Fresco is keen to tie up any loose ends for fans of the show.

Speaking to our friends over at LADbible, Victor explained: "That's something I think we all would want to do if everyone was available. Emotionally, everyone on the show would love to do some kind of closure.

"We thought it would be fun to do a season with Joel and Sheila in the same boat - what that would look like. I feel like this would be better for us and better for our fans too."

For those of you who never tuned into the quirky comedy, Santa Clarita Diet followed two married estate agents Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and Joel Hammond (Timothy Olyphant).

Their idyllic lives take a dramatic and dark turn when Sheila dies - but comes back from the afterlife as a zombie with a strong craving for human flesh.

While it had a loyal fanbase, Netflix decided to cull the show after just three seasons.

It was a particularly low blow for Santa Clarita Diet fans, as season three finished with a nail-biting cliff-hanger.

Sheila bites Joel to save his life and turn him into a fellow zombie, with Victor having some exciting plans over where he saw the show going next.

"Joel could have a different attitude [to Sheila], we would want him to be a little bit different in how he approaches things," he said. "It will be interesting to see him with that unleashed and what he turns into. So not just who he kills and how he kills but what kind of person he becomes."

Victor added he also felt sorry for fans of the series for not being able to see how the show was always intended to play out.

"There were online petitions. Hundreds of thousands of people signed," he said. "I felt badly because your job as a writer is to get people invested in your show emotionally. We did that and then the rug was pulled from under them. It was a hard thing to process."
