Two new images and two new character posters have been released for new Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet.
Starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant, the series isn’t quite the straight-forward comedy/drama we thought it was going to be. It seems that Drew’s character Sheila Hammond is undead, a little detail that hadn’t been released before now.
“Sheila comes to life when she becomes undead. And I wish that without consequences, of course, everybody could experience that kind of liberation, that kind of strength, that kind of terminator vision, that tingly skin that’s like probably laid dormant in you for a while. And not just censoring yourself…what a fun way that is to live,” says Drew Barrymore.
In Santa Clarita Diet, Joel (Timothy Olyphant, Justified) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore, Blended) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way. Santa Clarita Diet stars Drew Barrymore as Sheila Hammond, Timothy Olyphant as Joel Hammond, Liv Hewson as Abby Hammond and Skylar Gisondo as Eric Bemis. Showrunner Victor Fresco, Drew Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant, Aaron Kaplan, Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell are executive producers on the series. Nancy Juvonen is a producer.
“It’s like any kind of long-term relationship – if your partner goes through some changes and tries to strive for something new, it’s both unsettling and it feels a bit threatening, and you have to sort of take it in. But then you have to decide whether you’re gonna go along for the ride. It’s gonna force you to take a look at the way you see things, the way you operate, and are you willing also to take risks and try to meet the challenge,” reveals Timothy Olyphant
Santa Clarita Diet is available globally only on Netflix on 3rd February 2017. Check out the new images and posters in our gallery below:
