The CW Announces 'iZombie' Season 4 Premiere Date

The CW has officially revealed the rest of their midseason slate, including the season four premiere of iZombie.

The fan-favorite series will return on Monday, February 26th at 9/8c, following Legends of Tomorrow. (Which will be sort of sharing its timeslot with Supergirl for the remainder of the season.)

As fans will remember, iZombie ended things on a pretty dramatic note during last year's season finale, when Seattle was officially established as the country's zombie haven. And according to the show's cast and crew, things will be in a sort of "new normal" when season four picks back up.

"We're going to pick up next season three months later, and the United States has walled off Seattle like it's West Berlin," showrunner Rob Thomas teased to after the season finale. "Chase is hanging on by a very thin thread; it's like every day is the Cuban missile crisis. Brains are coming in, but they aren't getting as many as they expected, and zombies are hungry. In fact, the opening sequence in season four is going to follow a brain from the moment a man dies somewhere in Texas to the moment it reaches the brain tube and is ingested by a Seattle zombie. In fact, it's even going to start earlier than that. We're going to see a commercial on TV; we want to get someone like Laura Linney making a commercial pleading for the people of the United States to sign their brain donor card."

"It's so on-point politically right now." series star Rose McIver said during an interview with last year. "It's something I'm really proud to be a part of that in a comedy, zombie, fun show, still kind of is making comment about how we treat other and how we respond to having to coexist and tolerate and understand each other's opinions."


Alongside iZombie's return date, The CW announced that The 100 will return on Tuesday, April 24th at 9/8c, once Black Lightning finishes up its first season. The newest CW show, Life Sentence, will follow network hit Riverdale starting Wednesday March 7th, leading to Dynasty moving to Friday nights beginning March 9th. Starting April 20th, Dynasty will be followed by the final season of The Originals.
