Dive in — there is a second course of Santa Clarita Diet coming your way.
Today, Netflix confirmed that they have renewed the series, starring Drew Berrymore and Timothy Olyphant, for a second season premiering at some point in 2018. This renewal comes after the first season drew a ton of buzz, and also plenty of solid-to-great reviews. Personally, we loved the majority of the first season — it may have gone off the rails here and there, but it was hilariously funny and pretty inventive in its approach to comedy cannibalism.
As for where the second season could go, that’s anyone’s guess at the moment. Heck, we’d go so far as to say that we’re not even sure that we’d really want to know given that so much of the joy that came from watching the first season came from seeing just how crazy and surprising it was. This was a show unafraid of taking big risks, and throwing its characters in some unusual and absurd situations.
If there is one thing that we’d change for season, it’s simply a matter of more. We want more episodes of the show! The first season blew by almost in the blink of an eye, so in the event that there is a season 2, we’d love to imagine it sticking around for at least another hour or so in terms of total run time. In the end, though, that’s just us being greedy. To go along with that, we’d love some more big-name guest stars whose story ends in surprising fashion. We don’t want to spoil anything in this article for anyone who hasn’t watched season 1 just yet, but there’s one cameo at the start of the show we especially enjoyed. They weren’t there long, but they were awfully great when they were.
If you look at the video below, you can see the official renewal announcement in a way that certainly suits the show and also its tone.
