Is there going to be a Santa Clarita Diet season 3 renewal coming up over at Netflix? Leading up to the big season 2 premiere of the series premiering on Friday, this does feel like the right time to start asking this sort of question.
For the time being, what we do know is this: There is a lot of enthusiasm surrounding the idea of this happening and for a perfectly good reason. Santa Clarita Diet was extremely funny during its first season and with that, it does feel like there’s plenty of potential to do more with the show. It’s crazy, it’s madcap, and there isn’t quite anything else on TV like it. A little bit of originality goes a long way and that is one of the biggest feathers that this series has in its cap overall.
As for whether or not it will get this renewal, it feels likely. While Netflix is a streaming service that has canceled shows in the past, it very rarely has done that with series featuring big names, especially this early into their run. Gypsy is a little more of the exception rather than the rule. The appeal for this show, probably both creatively and in terms of commercial success, is that it’s fairly short. It’s something that doesn’t stretch your idea to the limit and you’ve got enough time between the end of one season and the start of the next one in order to better formulate some ideas in terms of some of what could be coming up.
Do we think that Santa Clarita Diet is meant to be the sort of series that is meant to last for ten seasons? Probably not, since there probably is only so much that can be done with this sort of concept. Yet, we do think that there is probably another year or two’s worth of great story to be mined here without any trouble.
