We finally have a full-length trailer for the next season of iZombie, and it tells us a lot about what’s in store for the team after last season’s total shake-up of a finale. The answer: Major Lilywhite helps solve crimes by eating a teenage girl’s brain.

We see a bit of our team in their SWAT gear from last season’s finale—looks like the bloodbath they survived will be covered up by a giant explosion. But the majority of this trailer gets the team back to solving crimes. Only now, Clive Babineaux knows Liv’s a zombie and not psychic, and Major’s getting in on the action. I feel for Babineaux. Some things were more fun when you were in the dark.

You know what else? They do need a van and a dog. Someone get on that.

iZombie returns April 4.

DISCUSSION

I sort of love how iZombie defies all assumptions. Imagine you’d never heard of the series before, and someone explained the basic premise:

A girl is turned into a zombie after this sort of crazy Red Bull party. When she eats brains she has visions of the person whose brain she eats so she teams up with a cop (who thinks she’s psychic) and solves crimes.

I mean that premise just sounds terrible. It sounds like it’s going to be full of cliches and written by someone so green that it will never make it past the concept episode.

And yet... iZombie is great. It’s fun, it’s clever, it’s pop culture without being too obvious about it. Hell... it manages to explore its own zombie mythos while treating it with a certain fun level of absurdity.

And c’mon... Zombie High? That alone... well done writers (and, I assume, the original comic creators). Well done.
