GHOSTS, quite simply, is fantastic.

The CBS comedy—an adaptation of the British series by the same name—follows Sam (Rose McIver), a young woman whose life is turned upside when an accident leaves her with an unexpected gift: the ability to see (and communicate with) ghosts. That complicates things as she and her husband, Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar), try to turn the estate they inherited into a charming bed and breakfast…all while a gaggle of spirits (ranging from a Viking warrior to a ’90s finance bro) have some very strong opinions about what’s being done to their home.

Naturally, fun mayhem follows. Sam and the ghosts form a bond as they get to know each other. And though Jay can’t see what’s going on around him, thanks to a temporary possession and Sam as his go-between, he manages to forge his own special connections with their unexpected roommates, too.

The series—which finished up its first season in April; season 2 was ordered in January—came out of the gate strong, somehow balancing its ten-person ensemble with laugh-out-loud moments, emotional backstories, and unexpected mysteries. It’s the perfect dose of joy, whether you watch it weekly or saved it all to binge. (The first season is reairing Thursdays at 9/8c over the summer on CBS; additionally, the episodes are streaming on Paramount+.)

With production of season 2 just getting started, showrunners Joe Port and Joe Wiseman looked back at the first season of the series, sharing their favorite moments from each cast member (so far)—and offered a couple of teases about what’s to come…

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

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.”

Comments Off on IZOMBIE: Rose McIver and Malcolm Goodwin on Liv’s Country Turn and the Hilarious Cut Clive Scene

Liv goes a little bit country in tonight’s brand new episode of IZOMBIE.

In the hour, “Even Cowgirls Get the Black and Blues,” Liv eats a brain of a country-singing waitress. So, naturally, Liv busts out a few songs of her own in the hour.

On the show’s Vancouver set, Rose McIver (Liv) spoke with reporters about singing for the episode, and she and Malcolm Goodwin shared details on a hilarious Clive scene that was cut for time… Read more

IZOMBIE’s Liv found herself in a rough spot when season 1 ended.

With many of those closest to her now in on Liv’s zombie secret (including Liv’s ex-fiance, Major, and Liv’s roommate/BFF Peyton), some of the weight has been taken off of her shoulders.

Of course, Liv’s family still doesn’t know the truth…and the season concluded with Liv being asked to donate blood to her wounded brother. But since Liv used the zombie cure on Blaine and a briefly-zombied Major, she’s fresh out of the cure and ideas of what to do.

At Comic-Con, Rose McIver (Liv) spoke with reporters about how Liv might react to newbies in season 2,  the “very untested cure,” if she’ll get to use her natural accent on the show, and more…

Comments Off on IZOMBIE: Rose McIver Previews the New CW Series

izombieThe CW’s newest show, IZOMBIE, launches tonight, and while the network is no stranger to supernatural beings (or hunters) the central character, Liv, is — as the title suggests — a zombie. And though Liv eats brains, she uses her feeding habits for a good cause: she gets her brains at the morgue where she works, and, as a side effect, gets memories from the dead…which help her solve their murders. (The series is also loosely based on a DC graphic novel series.)

Rose McIver (Liv), IZOMBIE’s lead, has also been a familiar presence on television, appearing most recently on ONCE UPON A TIME and MASTERS OF SEX.

On the IZOMBIE Vancouver set, McIver spoke with reporters about her new series…
