Netflix Cancels 'Santa Clarita Diet' After 3 Seasons

Netflix has today opted to cancel its original comedy series Santa Clarita Diet after three seasons. The news comes a month after the third season debuted on March 29 on the streaming service.

The comedy starred Drew Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant, Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo.

Victor Fresco created the comedy. He executive produced with Barrymore, Olyphant, Aaron Kaplan, Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell. Netflix was also the lead production studio. Kapital Entertainment, KatCo, Flower Films and Olybomb Entertainment also produced.

Netflix released the following statement on the cancellation: "The world had never known a 'zom-com' until Santa Clarita Diet, and we're indebted to creator Victor Fresco for bringing this idea to Netflix. To their endless credit, the incredible Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant were totally game, with an uncanny knack for comedy that brought Sheila and Joel Hammond to vibrant life, even though one of them was undead. We're grateful to Victor, Drew, and Timothy, along with fellow executive producers Tracy Katsky, Aaron Kaplan, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell and the terrific cast, including Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo, and crew for three hilarious seasons for Netflix members to discover for years to come."
