Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 - Joel McHale and Maggie Lawson among new cast members

Santa Clarita Diet Season 2

Story by Jack Foley

NETFLIX has unveiled some delicious casting news and a first look photo of the much-anticipated second season of* Santa Clarita Diet*, launching this spring.

First off, Joel McHale and Maggie Lawson have been confirmed to guest star as Chris and Christa, married realtors in Santa Clarita – and a more successful, more aggressive version of Sheila and Joel.

Gerald McRaney also guest stars as Ed Thune, a retired army colonel who Joel finds very intimidating. While Zachary Knighton guest stars as Paul, the chill descendent of Serbian ancestors who has been tasked with pursuing the truth of the undead, no matter who or what stands in his way.

In Santa Clarita Diet, Joel (Timothy Olyphant) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way.

Picking up right where we left off, Season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet finds the Hammonds trying to adapt to Sheila’s now-advanced undead state – even though she’s desperately working to hold on to her suburban lifestyle and not be defined as just another monster.

Unfortunately, while the family has become markedly better at murder, the number of missing people in Santa Clarita is starting to pile up and it’s no longer going unnoticed.

Meanwhile, the Hammonds are chasing the source of the virus so they can stop it from spreading and save humanity – which seems important.

Through it all, Sheila and Joel are grounded by their unconditional love for one another. Sure, being undead – or loving someone who is – isn’t always easy, but don’t all relationships have their challenges?
