The moment that Season 1 of Santa Clarita Diet ended, we were ready for more. And now, the wait is finally over. Season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet landed on Netflix today, Friday, March 23rd. And things are about to get suuuuper messy for Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and Joel (Timothy Olyphant).
If you haven’t seen Santa Clarita Diet, it’s about a suburban family living in California. Sheila and Joel are real estate agents raising their teenage daughter Abby (Liv Hewson). Everything is completely fine, and there’s nothing special to see here. Except for the fact that Sheila is a zombie, and they need to kill people for her to eat. Did we mention that?
The Hammond family’s massive secret makes for some hilariously outrageous situations. But what makes the show so loveable is that at the root of things, they’re still just a family. Despite their wild circumstances, they still deal with the same day-to-day things that all families deal with. And it turns out that extraordinary circumstances can actually be pretty boring sometimes.
We spoke with Barrymore and Olyphant at a Netflix press event about the balance their characters strike.
Barrymore continued, pointing out that all of us have mundane moments like this in our lives, zombies or not.
Olyphant summed up the contradiction well.
Season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet is now streaming on Netflix!
