‘iZombie’ season 2 spoilers: Series boss on episode order, Liv / Blaine situation

There is one thing that we should pass along first and foremost when it comes to the upcoming second season of “iZombie,” and it is this: For the time being, the episode order is only 13. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, series boss Rob Thomas confirmed that they don’t have a back-nine order yet, but they would like to do a full 22 episodes next year. Our feeling is that The CW will analyze all of their shows and then go from there; remember that the expectations may be somewhat higher here, simply because of the fact that it follows a ratings monster like “The Flash.”

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk about what could lie ahead now for Blaine. as Liv injected him with the cure, he is no longer a zombie! However, he still has a business to run, and that may be a little bit more complicated now than it was previously. What’s interesting about this story now is that given that Blaine relies on zombies for business and Liv is one, they may end up being on the same side due to Max Rager’s own actions. To see some more news on that, Thomas told the website the following:

“One thing [Blaine being human] means is that he can’t make any more zombies. One of the things we think it’ll be fun to play is that he is still going to try to present himself as a zombie to his customers in season two. So we might have funny scenes where we see him putting on white face instead of trying to tan himself because he needs to pass himself off as a zombie; he still wants those customers to fear him. We’re going to have fun with that. The big storyline and something we’re excited about for season two, that we announce right in our finale of season one, is that Max Rager has decided that all zombies must be eliminated and that will strangely make Blaine and Liv bedfellows. Liv is no more fond of Blaine at the end of season one, but she will likely to be forced to team up with him to protect the zombie population.”

We imagine that we’ll figure out a little bit more about this in season 2, and maybe about Peyton. The reason that was not touched on really in the finale was because they had a somewhat-natural end to the story with her going away, and with Aly Michalka’s status for “iZombie” unclear due to another pilot (which was not picked up), Thomas did not want to write the show into a difficult situation.
