Netflix just released the first batch of photos from season two of the comedy series, Santa Clarita Diet. Network also revealed the season two guest stars who’ll be interacting with undead and always hungry realtor Sheila Hammond (played by Drew Barrymore).
In addition to Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant, Liv Hewson, and Skyler Gisondo will be reprising their roles in the much-anticipated second season. Per Netflix, the guest cast of season two includes:
- Joel McHale and Maggie Lawson guest star as Chris and Christa, married realtors in Santa Clarita — and a more successful, more aggressive version of Sheila and Joel.
- Gerald McRaney guest stars as Ed Thune, a retired army colonel who Joel finds very intimidating.
- Zachary Knighton guest stars as Paul, the chill descendent of Serbian ancestors who has been tasked with pursuing the truth of the undead, no matter who or what stands in his way.
Santa Clarita Diet season two will premiere this spring.
The Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 Plot: In Santa Clarita Diet, Joel (Timothy Olyphant) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way.
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?
