Source | The fierce star of iZombie, Rose McIver dropped by Wizard World Chicago to chat with her fans and it was great! (If you aren’t watching, check out these 14 reasons to watch iZombie RIGHT NOW!) iZombie is going into it’s third season in 2017 on the CW and after one of the BEST finales ever, fans couldn’t wait to ask Rose their burning questions. Our very own Lindi moderated her panel and here is what we learned:
1. Rose hates the taste of the yucky gelatin brain substance, so she uses a spit bucket!
2. In Season 3, we will get to see Liv as a dominatrix and a hippie.
3. It takes about 1.5 hours for Rose to get into full zombie makeup.
4. It takes about 1.5 hours for the makeup crew to tame Rahul Kohli’s hair.
5. Her favorite “brain” was the magician, mostly because she got to learn the magic tricks and loved it.
6. Season 3 will start about 3 minutes after the ending of the Season 2 finale.
7. Brain she would most want to eat? Steven Avery, so she could finally learn the truth.
8. She would love to do a crossover with The Flash or the other CW superhero shows, because Liv is a hero too!
9. Her favorite shows growing up were Full House, Simpsons, The Nanny and Friends.
10. She is delightful. (That was our observation, but still. FACT!)
We can’t flippin’ wait for Season 3 of iZombie and now we are even more pumped! What was your favorite brain that Liv ate? Hit the comments and tell us!
iZombie returns to the CW in 2017.
Early in July, we posted that Rose was on the set of Broods’ new music video “Heartlines“. Some may remember that she was there with her “Blinder” co-star and good friend Oliver Ackland, but we were not sure what she was actually doing there at the time. It turns out Rose is starring in their video! The music video is Directed by Dano Cerny and Produced by Lauren Solie, and both Rose and Oliver stars in it. Check out the video below, and head over to our photo gallery for HD screen captures…
Source | Aside from the purported zombie war happening in “iZombie” season 3, fans are also anticipating Liv Moore’s love story, who has never been lucky when it comes to her romantic relationships.
Loyal followers of the series know that Liv’s (Rose McIver) boyfriends always end up dead. Lowell (Bradley James) and Drake (Greg Finley) both died in seasons 1 and 2, respectively, leaving Liv alone. McIver even joked before that nobody wanted to be cast as her love interest because they know they would end biting the dust.
However, during last month’s San Diego Comic Con, executive producer Rob Thomas teased that Liv would have a new boyfriend in the third installment. “Liv will have a love interest this year who does not die,” he told TV Line.
He quickly added, though, that Liv still won’t have a happily ever after with her new boyfriend and that they would break up by season 3’s finale. However, Thomas notes that “whoever that is, the relationship will not end because of death.”
Thomas might have likewise teased that the romance between Liv and ex-fiancé Major (Robert Buckley) would be rekindled in season 3, something that fans have been speculating on. However, he didn’t offer any formal confirmation of that angle, so fans would have to wait until season 3 starts airing to find out for sure.
Meanwhile, The CW has confirmed that “iZombie” would see a shorter third season containing only 13 episodes. That is three episodes shorter than season 2’s offering. According to TV Insider, fans surmised that poor ratings have to do with the network’s decision to make season 3 shorter.
“iZombie” premiered with a whopping 2.29 million viewership in 2014, but it dropped to a measly 1.53 million viewers in the season 2 premiere based on 18-49 demographics, according to Nielsen, as reported by Zap2It’s TV by the Numbers.
Still, some fans say that a season with 13 episodes is normal for a show that premieres midseason. Neither the network nor Thomas has yet to speak out on this matter.
“iZombie” season 3 is expected to premiere sometime in January as part of The CW’s midseason roster. In the meantime, stay tuned for more updates about the series’ upcoming installment.

Hello Rose fans! Have you missed us? We have definitely missed keeping you all updated on everything Rose related!

All I’m looking for is someone who’s a big fan of Rose, and wants to help out posting news and photos a couple of times per week/month! You can apply by emailing email@example.com. Stay tuned for all the latest news up next!
