39. Santa Clarita Diet (TV series)

Premiere date: February 3, 2017

What Santa Clarita Diet is about: The Netflix comedy series follows Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and Joel Hammond (Timothy Olyphant) as an average, sorta boring, married couple who work as real estate agents in Santa Clarita, California. Despite their calm lifestyle, the two have a lot of love for one another and together, with their daughter, are as happy as can be. But sometimes adventure, or, in this case, misadventures, finds even unsuspecting families.

One random day, Sheila becomes infected by a virus that swiftly kills her, but brings her back just as quickly, but as a zombie. As she and her husband try to figure out what’s happening, she begins to crave human flesh. Will they be able to feed her or will the virus get the best of her?

Why you need to watch this: Santa Clarita Diet is so charming and sweet! It can either be the perfect series you have playing in the background or one you become completely invested in! The comedy is lighthearted, while also showcasing drama and farfetched scenarios that are on the silly side, but so fun!

I would often watch it completely glued to the TV, but other times it’s easy to follow along without paying it your full attention. There are three seasons available on Netflix right now. But this is where things get complicated. Unfortunately, Netflix has canceled Santa Clarita Diet. 

This outraged fans for many reasons. Not only is this comedy an underrated gem, but it left us with a major hangover that is so upsetting, we still can’t believe there are no more episodes ahead. Still, Santa Clarita Diet is worth the watch! And you can’t say that about just any show that is incomplete!
