‘iZombie’ Renewed for 5th Season at CW, ‘Life Sentence’ Terminated Album

Huzzah. Amidst all the cancellations of your favorite shows, there’s one that’ll be coming back from near death: “iZombie.”

It joins 11 other CW series that were also renewed for another season: the undying “Supernatural,” “Riverdale”, “Jane The Virgin,” “Black Lightning,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “Arrow,” “The 100,” “Dynasty,” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.”

Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars”) created “iZombie,” which stars Rose McIver as a zombie medical examiner who’s able to solve crimes thanks to eating the brains of the recently deceased and seeing their final moments. (Making it a perfect binge partner to the shorter-lived but similarly themed “Pushing Daisies” and “Tru Calling.”)

The network describes it as, natch, a “rom-com-zom-dram.”

CW shows getting the ax include: “Life Sentence” (starring “Pretty Little Liars” alum Lucy Hale) and military drama “Valor.”

This fall, look for reboots of “Charmed” and Roswell” as well as a spinoff of “The Originals,” called “Legacies.”
