How 'iZombie' differs from 'Veronica Mars' (aside from the fact she's dead)

An inquisitive blonde solves crimes all while narrating via voiceover.

No, we’re not talking about Veronica Mars—though The CW’s somewhat similar new series iZombie does hail from Mars creator Rob Thomas. Heck, even Rose McIver’s voiceover sounds like Kristen Bell’s, but there is one very big difference: iZombie’s Liv is a zombie.


CW midseason dates: 'Supernatural' on the move again


The CW is firming up its midseason schedule. The network announced return dates for several series, such as The Flash and Supernatural, as well as the series premiere date for iZombie. 

The plans include shifting Supernatural to a new night (again!), as the ultra-veteran drama series heads to Wednesdays, where it will now be paired with Arrow. (Supernatural was paired with The Flash on Tuesdays this fall.) Instead, new series iZombie, starring Rose McIver as an undead med student, will get a Flash lead-in starting March 17. But post-apocalyptic Rapture drama The Messengers is getting a far less secure perch, launching at 9 p.m. on Friday nights starting April 10.

The CW already brought back midseason series Hart of Dixie early to Mondays last month. Not on the below list: Perpetually beleaguered Beauty and the Beast, which will join The CW’s schedule in late season or, more likely, summer. Here are the latest dates:


Steven Weber heads to CW's 'iZombie'

Steven Weber has landed a guest-starring role on The CW’s midseason drama iZombie, EW has learned exclusively.


Greetings from Vancouver: Battling the rain for a marathon session of TV set visits

Move over, Hollywood, the much chillier Vancouver, Canada, has become a hot shooting spot, thanks to its tax breaks and unique ability to stand in for everything from sleepy Maine towns to superhero metropolises (even if its outdoor locales prove tricky in keeping secrets from fans). I suited up for a whopping eight set visits in four days to find out what makes Vancouver and the actors who call it their (temporary) home so special. (Feel free to play a drinking game with the words “rain” and “cold.” I dare you.)


'iZombie' to stage a 'Veronica Mars' reunion

Ryan Hansen has landed a guest-starring role on The CW’s midseason drama iZombie, EW has learned exclusively.


'iZombie' recasts mom, adds 'Devious Maids' star

The CW’s comic book adaptation iZombie has recast the role of Olivia “Liv” Moore’s mom, tapping Molly Hagan to replace the originally cast Nora Dunn, EW has learned exclusively.


'Once Upon a Time' actress will eat brains on 'iZombie'

Tinkerbell has an, um, savory new role on the CW.

Rose McIver, who played the pixie-dust throwing fairy on ABC’s Once Upon a Time – and will also replace Kiernan Shipka in Lifetime’s Flowers in the Attic sequel — has been cast in the lead role of the CW pilot iZombie. Wait until you read what’s in store for her!

She’ll play Olivia “Liv” Moore, a “med student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity,” according to The CW’s official description. “But with each brain Live consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories. With the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head.”

The drama is based on characters from the DC Comics’s Vertigo imprint, created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and was developed by Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars), Diane Ruggiero, Danielle Stokdyk, and Dan Etheridge.
