It looks like Liv Moore will get to live a bit more on iZombie. While The CW has yet to announce a season 4 renewal on the series, showrunner Rob Thomas let slip some pretty serious hints about it when we checked in with him about Tuesday’s revealing episode (for more on that, come back at 10 p.m. ET).

After dropping the bomb that a certain reveal had been cut from the season 3 finale but the mystery would be solved “pretty early in season 4,” we pressed a bit further and Thomas admitted he feels “confident” about another season.

“I’ll say this: I bought a house in L.A. and I’m moving there hoping there will be a season 4, so no one will be more disappointed than me and my business manager if there is not,” he said. “I am betting a lot that there will be. I feel good. I am confident, and hopefully, that confidence is not misplaced.”

As for the theme of this hypothetical season 4, Thomas offered this: “The season 3 finale is a pretty major reset of the show, so I feel like if I said anything about season 4, I would be giving away the cool stuff that we want to surprise people with in the finale of season 3.”

There’s really only one downside to this news: A fourth season doesn’t bode well for Ravi’s current zombie cure. “If there is ever a cure where things go well, it seems like the show will be over,” Thomas said. “I don’t think we could cure Liv Moore until we’re ready to do our final episode.”

iZombie, starring Rose McIver, Rahul Kohli, and Robert Buckley, airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.

iZombie Season 3 started with a whole new dynamic now that Clive knows the truth about zombies and Liv’s personality shifts. It gets interesting in tonight’s iZombie Season 3 Episode 2, “Zombie Knows Best,” when Major eats teenage girl brains and Liv eats the brains of her father.

BuddyTV spoke with Robert Buckley on set in Vancouver about portraying a teenage girl, singing a Katy Perry song and working more closely with Malcolm Goodwin (Clive).
Buckley didn’t hold anything back when portraying teenage girl Major, “I just went wild.” He didn’t have any difficulties channeling the personality of a teenage girl and had a lot of fun with the role.
“The only thing that was weird about it was how little of a stretch it was,” Buckley says. He decided to just go for it and thought, “I’m just going to let my inner mean girl fly. And, I’ll tell you what– She soared.”
Buckley also sings a Katy Perry song, though “sing” maybe be a questionable word to use based on his description. “I’m the worst singer in the world,” Buckley says. “By the way, that is not a karaoke favorite. She is hard to sing.

Now that Clive knows about the zombie secret, Major and Clive are interacting more this season. Buckley had a blast working with Goodwin this season and notes, “I’m so unprofessional and juvenile around him.”
While filming a scene for Episode 2, Buckley tried to get Goodwin to break and finally succeeded. Watch the above interview video for the funny story!

iZombie airs Tuesday at 9/8c on The CW.

iZombie Season 3 premieres TODAY at 9/8c on The CW.

iZombie premieres Tuesday, April 4 at 9/8c on The CW.

The CW officially confirmed “iZombie” Season 3 premiere date, which will be on Apr. 4, 8 p.m. But that’s not the only wonderful piece of information – it was announced that the new season will start with a two-hour episode. This means that fans will be treated with an extended hour of watching the adventures of Liv (Rose McIver) and her friends.

“iZombie” Season 3 is expected to feature Liv having to deal with a new threat – Andrea Savage’s Vivian Stoll. It turns out that Vivian is head of Filmore-Graves, mysterious corporation, and aims to make Seattle a zombie capital. It can be recalled in the previous season that Vivian asked Liv whether or not she would like to join her zombie army. According to reports, it’s likely that the protagonist will team up with Vivian just so she will know how the company works. Once Liv is inside, she might get the help that she needs to take the company down.

Meanwhile, major spoilers have revealed that “iZombie” Season 3 will welcome back Liv’s ex-boyfriend Drake (Greg Finley). It can be recalled that the zombie hunk was killed in Season 2 when he turned into a Romero and Liv had to kill him to save her partner, Clive (Malcolm Goodwin). But before fans can get excited about the possible reunion of the cute pairing, it should be known that Drake will only appear as part of Liv’s memory.

In “iZombie” Season 3 episode 10, Liv happened to eat the brain of a mentally-ill man. In his past life, he was haunted by his wife, whom he killed during a car accident, TVLine has learned. As fans would know, that would also mean that Liv will be haunted by her past – in this case, her moments with Drake.

Will Liv move on from Drake that fast or will she finally find happiness back in the arms of her ex-fiancé, Major (Robert Buckley)? Find out on “iZombie” Season 3 on Apr. 4, starting at 8 p.m. Regular schedule will be on Tuesdays, 9 p.m. ET on The CW.

Working on my six minutes.

Behind every great zombie there are great men. In the case of iZombie, that would be star Rose McIver’s fantastic four: David Anders (or “Ders,” as his costars call him), who plays zombie baddie turned amnesiac human ally Blaine DeBeers; Robert Buckley, aka zombie Major Lilywhite and Liv’s (McIver) former fiancé; Malcolm Goodwin, as Clive Babineaux, a Seattle detective who frequently partners with Liv; and Rahul Kohli, who plays Ravi Chakrabarti, Liv’s boss at the medical examiner’s office. Their characters may have increasingly complicated relationships on screen, but off screen, the cast has formed a tight bond. “When you film away from everybody you know and love, your coworkers can really make or break the experience,” McIver says. “I feel like I just won the lottery.”

The costars spilled on their dynamic…and a few secrets about each other.

Looking back at last year, what was your favorite part of Season 2?
David Anders: I liked working with Rahul a lot more. I liked the little love triangle that’s brewing between Rahul, Aly (Peyton) and myself.
Robert Buckley: I liked seeing Clive and Bozzio’s relationship. That was the first time we got a glimpse into who Clive was; the man behind the badge. And Jessica Harmon as Bozzio killed it. She was such a great addition.
Rahul Kohli: Also, I like how the stakes have been raised. How they created far more danger for everyone; they fleshed out the mythology of our world. I like how the world of Seattle was fleshed out. We’ve got a much richer kind of environment right now, far more Big Bads. With the FBI agency, as well, I like how they expanded.
Malcolm Goodwin: I also like how all the characters and all the worlds interconnected. I also love the way that everything came to an end, all that action stuff. That Max Rager stuff was so much fun. I like the way all the storylines came together, all the way the characters got to interact and how everything got to blow up.

What’s it like when several of you share scenes?
Buckley: Malcolm’s very professional, and for some reason, that drives me to be so immature and unprofessional. Our first scene together, I was just so excited to be with him. Every time, right before they called action, I would hold Malcolm’s hand, and he’d try to jerk it away.
Goodwin: He slaps my ass. In the last episode, he got Rose into it. They call action and he hit me on one cheek, Rose hit me on the other.
Anders: A lot of ass slaps from Buckley.
Buckley: If you take one thing from [this], it’s that Buckley comes with a lot of ass slaps. [Everyone laughs]
Goodwin: We get along in real life, so it makes it that much easier to jump into a scene, work with one another, comment on what each other is doing and help each other out. That dynamic brings out the best in all of us.
Kohli: We’ve all worked on various jobs where you’re not as close with other people. With this particular show, having that connection allows us to bring a certain energy to the scenes.

Do you prefer to film the lighter or more tense scenes?
Kohli: Tense. For me, I’ve done 30-plus episodes of being light and doing the humor in stuff like that; that’s kind of Ravi’s device. When we get to do some of the more emotional stuff, when Ravi confronted Major about being the Chaos Killer. And I’m kind of speaking on behalf of Malcolm here, but it was a nice change for Malcolm to also play some of the stuff with Bozzio when they were breaking up and have some meat and real tense scenes with Liv.
Buckley: Ders, what do you prefer? You’ve had scenes where you were killing me or kicking the crap out of me, and we had scenes where we were slightly nicer to each other. What’s your preference?
Anders: I like their nice stuff. I like being on equal footing. I thought that was kind of fun. That stuff with, “Oh, you’re a zombie again?” “Yep.” That kind of stuff. I liked that. I like working with you, Robert.
Buckley: Aww, Ders! I’m swooning.
Anders: If I’m kicking your ass or you’re slapping mine.
Buckley: We’re a tactile bunch.
