Maybe you were too busy last spring to fit a brand new show into your schedule. Maybe nobody told you that Veronica Mars
creator Rob Thomas and co-writer Diane Ruggiero-Wright had a new series on the CW. Maybe you thought this premise would somehow not be awesome: A girl named Liv Moore (Rose McIver
) turns into a zombie, and uses the visions she gets after eating murder victims' brains to help find out who killed them. Don't worry; you can fix the error in your ways when iZombie
returns on October 6.
You don't even need to binge the whole 13 episodes of season one before you dive right into the new episodes (though you'll want to watch them eventually). We've created a little guide to catch you up on the show (which is based on a comic book by the same name) and its delightful (if sometimes brain-craving) characters. We'll skip over the episodic details about the murders Liv solves with Police Detective Clive Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) and go straight to the good stuff: Liv's zombie problems, BFFs, and tricky love life. To do so, we're using the creative efforts (well, the GIFs) of the iZombie
fans, who are so rabid, they've already won an MTV Fandom Award. Trust us, you might be joining their horde very soon.
