“iZombie’s” game-changing season 2 finale introduced several new exciting storylines for the show’s season 3, but does this mean the CW series is moving away from the procedurals?
“I think now that our show is going into the third season, there’s room to shake the structure a little bit and play outside the box,” series actress Rose McIver told Comic Book Resources.
However, the 27-year-old actress — who plays Liv Moore on the series — noted that the show’s procedural aspects will always be important to the premise of the program.
“There are certainly great things about it being a procedural as a device for her being able to eat those brains each week, and for it to hang on these very specific story hooks can be fantastic, too,” she said. “I think it could kind of go either way at the moment, and I feel like story-wise and character dynamic-wise, relationship-wise, there’s really, really interesting stuff coming to play with.”
During a sit-down interview with Showbiz Junkies at WonderCon last month, McIver’s co-star Robert Buckley was asked the same question, and although he couldn’t really tell whether fans can expect less procedural episodes next season, he did say that “big changes” are coming,
“I really can’t give you a very informed answer because I don’t know what they have in store,” the 34-year-old actor, who plays Major Lilywhite on the series, said when asked if the show is moving away from the procedurals. “But going off of the script, [season 2 finale] is a game changer certainly in several ways. In the procedural aspect, I don’t know if it’s going to be a game-changer there. But in the relations between the characters and the dynamics of those relationships, absolutely. Big changes.”
