Canceled: Santa Clarita Diet

Number of seasons: 3

What it’s about: Santa Clarita Diet originally started as a real estate agent who finds herself a member of the undead. She has to tell her husband and they figure out whether they can live their normal lives when all she wants to do is eat human flesh. While there may be death and destruction, Sheila Hammond becoming a zombie may have been the best thing to happen to the couple!

Why it was canceled: Sadly, this was one of the Netflix shows recently on my list of shows in danger of being canceled. And the only reason it made that list was because of Netflix’s trend of canceling shows after two or three seasons. The costs for production jump up exponentially and considering Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant were the stars, the costs up have already been relatively high.

I think this is the reason for the cancellation — unless there was something going on behind the scenes that led to the stars (who are also executive producers) deciding to bring the dark comedy to an end. After all, Santa Clarita Diet has made it to a number of Top 10 binge-worthy shows over the years, including since the season 3 drop on March 29.

Reaction to the cancellation: The reactions have been as expected. Fans have quickly gathered to start a #SaveSantaClaritaDiet campaign on Twitter. This is the way many fans have come together and these campaigns have helped in the past. We just have to look at how Lucifer was saved by Netflix and The Expanse was saved by Amazon Prime.

This is one of the (if not the) best zombie programs on TV right now. It needs to be saved by someone.
