The CW has released the official synopsis for “Thug Death,” the forthcoming season five premiere of iZombie. At the start of the final season, the episode is already set to change things up a little bit — in an episode where the murder victim’s body is missing, so there is no brain for Liv to eat. Looks like the police-procedural elements of the show are going to get a workout.
Last week, the cult-favorite series debuted the first teaser for the final season. Featuring the tagline “Make it brain one last time,” you can see the image below, promoting the series’ May 2 return to the airwaves. In the final season, New Seattle faces another status quo change, with Peyton and Major essentially in charge of preventing the walled-off zombie city from starving to death or descending into anarchy.
Read the official synopsis for the season five premiere below:
YOUR FAVORITE ZOM-COM-ROM-DRAM IS BACK FOR ITS FINAL SEASON! — While investigating a murder case with no body and no brain to eat, the only evidence Liv (Rose McIver) and Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) have to work with is a grainy video and a little bit of blood found at the crime scene. Meanwhile, Blaine (David Anders) is up to his old tricks. Robert Buckley, Rahul Kohli, Aly Michalka and Bryce Hodgson also star. Dan Etheridge directed the episode written by Rob Thomas.
iZombie will air on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT, before episodes of In The Dark on The CW. “Thug Death” will debut on May 2.
