Comments Off on IZOMBIE: Rose McIver Previews Seattle’s New Zombie World Order

It’s a whole new zombie world when IZOMBIE’s fourth season bows tonight.

With the existence of the undead no longer a secret—and with a good portion of Seattle now infected with the zombie virus—the city is walled off from the rest of society when The CW zom-com-rom-dram returns. “We have a couple of very different opinions about how zombies and humans should interact,” Rose McIver (Liv) previews of some tension within the core group. “The whole show is pretty different now that people know about zombies.”

In Monday’s season opener, Liv consumes the brain of a Seattle Seahawks super-fan (“That was a lot of fun,” McIver says with a laugh. “A lot of face paint!”), but also has to navigate the increasingly complicated new way of life. “Throughout the course of the season, Liv takes a very specific route about how she thinks it should be approached—she’s very compassionate as an individual, for better and for worse,” she says. “What I like is that it’s very nuanced. There’s not one great solution about how to deal with these problems, it just raises questions around it. Major takes the other side of it. He and Fillmore Graves are very hardlined about what they think needs to happen.”

“It mirrors what’s happening in the [real] world: to watch these two very different opinions clashing and people who are getting hurt in between,” she continues. “IZOMBIE is a lot of fun as a show, but it’s also very powerful to be on a zombie comedy that has issues people need to be thinking about right now. We don’t have any solutions, but we’re asking questions so people might think outside their own perspective a little bit.”

The hour is fun (and unexpectedly emotional at times), plus it allows viewers to see a new side of Team Scorpion. Intrigued? Here are a few more teases about the episode…

In Wednesday’s episode of THE X-FILES “Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) find themselves targets in a deadly game of cat and mouse.” And while the duo has found themselves in tough spots before, the hour, “Rm9sbG93ZXJz”—written by Shannon Hamblin & Kristen Cloke, and directed by Glen Morgan—is told with only a handful of lines of dialogue.

Check out some photos from the ambitious installment:

THE VOICE season 14 is adding a twist to the blind auditions: the steal.

The coaches have never refrained from pulling any trick at their disposal to woo a contestant to their team, but now they each have one block at their disposal to use during the blind auditions. However, it has to be utilized wisely—they need to block their fellow coach before the potentially-blocked coach turns their chair; if they try to block them and the coach never turns, the blocker gets it back to use later. The blocked coach only learns they’ve been blocked when they see the bright red “BLOCKED” where their name normally lights up post-chair turn.

“We love the block,” THE VOICE executive producer Audrey Morrissey told reporters after a screening of the premiere. “We always look for elements we can add…[to] change up the dynamic of the show. And we were thinking about the competition: we’ve never really had an offensive defensive move. So we came up with the block.”
