Santa Clarita Diet creator Victor Fresco wants to make season 4 

If you’re hoping to see Netflix revive Santa Clarita Diet, we have a smidgen of good news.

Santa Clarita Diet creator Victor Fresco recently spoke about the possibility of Netflix renewing Santa Clarita Diet for season 4. According to an interview with LADBible, Fresco said he was interested in making a fourth season of the series at Netflix.

The streaming network canceled the Netflix series starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant after season 3.

Is Netflix making Santa Clarita Diet season 4?

It sounds like Fresco and the rest of the Santa Clarita Diet team is ready to get back at it.

Here’s what Fresco told LADBible:

"“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.”"

That sounds like a great idea for Santa Clarita Diet season 4.

Now we just have to wait to see if Netflix will take him up on the offer. While I want to see the next season, it’s unclear if that’s something Netflix would even consider at this point.

We don’t know the metrics Netflix uses to make their renewal and cancellation decisions, so it’s hard to see where exactly Santa Clarita Diet went from promising new series to canceled.

My guess is that viewers from season 2 didn’t continue watching season 3 or something like that. That’s usually why Netflix ends up canceling shows.

What is Santa Clarita Diet season 4 about?

Assuming Netflix would pick up the series for another season, and that’s a big IF at this point, Santa Clarita Diet season 4 would resume where the third season ended, which was on a major cliffhanger.

Sheila bites Joel right at the end of the season, which means, after three seasons of supporting his undead wife, Joel would also be a zombie.

That’s what the fourth season would be about, according to Fresco.

We’ll have to wait and see if Netflix orders Santa Clarita Diet season 4. I’m not getting my hopes up yet. Netflix doesn’t have much of a track record of bringing back shows that it canceled.

Stay tuned for more information about the future of the series on Netflix.
