A family that slays together, stays together. Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant are back in the cul-de-sac for the second season of Netflix’s bloodthirsty comedy Santa Clarita Diet.
Despite her hunger for human flesh, his undead wife’s killer urges and her mom’s new lust for life (and taking it), Sheila, Joel and Abby Hammond are fineeee. No, really. They are all A-OK. These Santa Clarita staples are just peachy. Everyone. Is. Fine. And that will become abundantly clear in Santa Clarita Diet Season 2, which launches globally on Netflix Friday, March 23rd.
Picking up right where we left off, Season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet finds the Hammonds trying to adapt to Sheila’s now-advanced undead state — even though she’s desperately working to hold on to her suburban lifestyle and not be defined as just another monster. Unfortunately — while the family has become markedly better at murder — the number of missing people in Santa Clarita is starting to pile up and it’s no longer going unnoticed. Meanwhile, the Hammonds are chasing the source of the virus so they can stop it from spreading and save humanity — which seems important. Through it all, Sheila and Joel are grounded by their unconditional love for one another. Sure, being undead — or loving someone who is — isn’t always easy, but don’t all relationships have their challenges?
