Olivia Camarillo, Staff Writer

Santa Clarita Diet is a Netflix original horror-comedy series that follows a seemingly normal family in the town of Santa Clarita, California. The family consists of married real estate agents, Joel and Sheila Hammond, and their daughter Abby. When Sheila goes through a dramatic change that leaves her undead and craving human flesh, the family’s world is changed forever. The family has to deal with nosy neighbors and getting to the bottom of this horrifying mystery.

With an 86% rating on “Rotten Tomatoes” and a 7.8/10 rating on IMDb, Santa Clarita Diet released its first season in 2017. However, it came off as a little strong to some viewers due to its raunchy comedy and gore. Santa Clarita Diet didn’t become popular until late 2017, months after its release. Even though it wasn’t widely popular, viewers wanted more. Its second season then debuted in March of 2018. After the second season was released, thousands of viewers started watching. Most viewers were drawn to the horror-comedy because of its lead actors, Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. But when viewers saw who Barrymore portrayed, they were shocked. Sadly, after the third season, the show was canceled in 2019.

So if you’re hungry for something different, and think you can stomach it, Santa Clarita Diet is the right show for you.
