Great news Brits! You can now finally watch iZombie’s first two season on Netflix. We have been receiving a lot of tweets and emails from people who wanted to know when the show was available in the UK, so we are very happy to share the good news with you all today… Start binging!

Source | iZombie is finally available to watch in the UK, thanks to Netflix.

Both seasons of the entertainingly offbeat drama from Veronica Mars team Rob Marshall and Diane Ruggiero-Wright are available to stream now in their entirety.
iZombie stars Rose McIver as medical student Liv Moore who finds that being a zombie allows her to help the police solve murders, as long as she eats the victim’s brains to gain their memories and traits.

McIver’s co-star Rahul Kohli teased the good news on Twitter: “To my fellow Brits…check your Netflix…there’s an undead surprise apparently.”
Back in March, The CW renewed iZombie for a third season. There’s no word yet on if Netflix will air the next season closer to the US broadcast, like with Once Upon A Time and Pretty Little Liars.
The show also stars Malcolm Goodwin, Robert Buckley and David Anders. It is loosely based on the DC comics series of the same name.

Source | “iZombie’s” game-changing season 2 finale introduced several new exciting storylines for the show’s season 3, but does this mean the CW series is moving away from the procedurals?

“I think now that our show is going into the third season, there’s room to shake the structure a little bit and play outside the box,” series actress Rose McIver told Comic Book Resources.

However, the 27-year-old actress — who plays Liv Moore on the series — noted that the show’s procedural aspects will always be important to the premise of the program.

“There are certainly great things about it being a procedural as a device for her being able to eat those brains each week, and for it to hang on these very specific story hooks can be fantastic, too,” she said. “I think it could kind of go either way at the moment, and I feel like story-wise and character dynamic-wise, relationship-wise, there’s really, really interesting stuff coming to play with.”

During a sit-down interview with Showbiz Junkies at WonderCon last month, McIver’s co-star Robert Buckley was asked the same question, and although he couldn’t really tell whether fans can expect less procedural episodes next season, he did say that “big changes” are coming,

“I really can’t give you a very informed answer because I don’t know what they have in store,” the 34-year-old actor, who plays Major Lilywhite on the series, said when asked if the show is moving away from the procedurals. “But going off of the script, [season 2 finale] is a game changer certainly in several ways. In the procedural aspect, I don’t know if it’s going to be a game-changer there. But in the relations between the characters and the dynamics of those relationships, absolutely. Big changes.”

Source |  In a way, “iZombie” star Rose McIver plays a different character each week because she has to imbibe the personalities of the brains her character Liv Moore consumes.

She has become a gambling addict, an eternal optimist, and a compulsive liar. For a while, she even got to be a brilliant scientist and a passionate musician.

It’s interesting to see McIver embrace these personalities, but according to the actress, it is still important for her to maintain Liv’s core personality in each episode.

“I think part of the challenge is maintaining Liv each week, and her integrity,” the actress told Under the Radar Magazine. “So I try to find different ways to incorporate the characteristics of each person whose brain is eaten by Liv, but still have the audience invested in Liv as a character.”

McIver is proud of the success attained by the show, and she believes they were able to break through the zombie craze with something unique.

“We wanted to have a little bit of the gore and psychological stuff, but we also wanted to have a laugh about it and be self-aware,” she said.

Seeing zombies devour brains is usually disgusting to watch, but “iZombie” somehow managed to make it look not as horrifying as it truly is.

To create the brains, the “iZombie” team experiments with “clumps of gelatine, bits of corn syrup, and vegetable juice,” McIver revealed.

“During my last episode, the crew made a concoction of bread crumbs and mushrooms-with bits of fake brain in the mix, of course. It was actually pretty delicious. After we finished the shoot I kept eating it, which everyone found to be pretty hilarious,” she continued.

McIver earlier teased that they are actually planning to do something different for the next season.

“I think now that our show is going into the third season, there’s room to shake the structure a little bit and play outside the box,” McIver told Comic Book Resources. “But there are certainly great things about it being a procedural as a device for her being able to eat those brains each week, and for it to hang on these very specific story hooks can be fantastic, too.”

“iZombie” season 3 is slated for the 2016-2017 roster of The CW.

Good day Rose fans! I have a little treat for you today. Some of you might have noticed already, but last night I uploaded 10 gorgeous new outtakes from a photoshoot Rose did last year to our gallery. It was photographed by the talented Luc-Richard Elie. This is easily one of my favorites; and the new outtakes are just amazing! I love how it showcases both Rose’s edginess, and her more softer side. Enjoy the pretty…

Back in 1994, Rose starred in three television movies in the “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” series. We already have screen captures from the first two, “Hercules and the Amazon Women” and “Hercules in the Underworld”, and today I have added 116 DVD captures from “Hercules in the Maze of the Minotaur”! Rose was only 5-6 years old in these, and she looked super adorable in the films. She also did a really good job, in the few scenes she had!

I have also created information pages for all three of the films, which you can find in our career section. You can find all her films here (the Hercules ones are at the bottom of the Television Movies category). Rose also starred in two television episodes of the TV show about Hercules as well; information pages for those will be added soon too!

Links and previews from the episodes below – we hope you’ll like the photos!

[Source] A delicious second course.Warning: Full spoilers for iZombie: Season 2 follow.

Consistently offering clever, witty and fun episodes, iZombie solidified itself as one of the most entertaining series on TV in its second season. Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright had already created an offbeat yet inviting world in Season 1 and in Season 2 they built upon it, putting the characters into more intense and involving situations, all while still maintaining the show’s crucial, knowing sense of humor.

The cast continue to be one of the most likeable you’ll find, anchored by the excellent Rose McIver. Okay, it’s one of the show’s reaches that pretty much every brain Liv eats is a very focused, specific type of person, but that’s just part of the deal here. And it gives McIver so much to work with, as she goes all in playing Liv taking on personas as varied as a coach, a stalker, a costumed vigilante or a tough stripper. Every week, McIver is given something different to play and she consistently nails it, with ongoing mileage gotten out of how out there and uncharacteristic Liv gets, depending on her latest brain meal.

After his heartbroken ex-fiancé character take a surprising (and awesome) turn at the end of Season 1, Robert Buckley’s Major got a great storyline in Season 2, as he found himself working for Vaughn Du Clark (Steven Weber), tasked with assassinating zombies – all while actually locking them up instead, which put him in a very precarious position both with Du Clark and the cops and the FBI, who were getting closer and closer to him for his actions in both Season 1 and 2.

The fact that those investigating Major’s crimes were Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) and his FBI partner/love interest Dale Bozzio (Jessica Harmon) only increased the tension, even while Clive and Dale made a great pairing – with Harmon effortlessly fitting in on the show, as the somewhat goofy Dale provided a great foil for the somewhat stoic Clive. And in the midst of this, having Clive begin to slowly notice the things that were off about Liv was continually intriguing, since it was inevitable that Clive would one day find out The Secret.

Blaine (David Anders) in the meantime had to adjust to life as a human again – for awhile at least, as he never kept his nose clean and eventually became one of the undead again, with Anders always bringing a wonderfully quirky/funny approach to the character.

McIver and Rahul Kohli continued to be a delightful duo in all the scenes between Liv and Ravi and Kohli shined throughout the season, though I do hope Season 3 can perhaps give Ravi more of his own storyline at some points beyond the ongoing search for a cure or the burgeoning love triangle between Ravi, Peyton (Aly Michalka) and Blaine. The end of the season, as Ravi began to suspect Major was up to no good – and their big confrontation about it – showed how strong it can be to use the usually comic presence of Ravi in a dramatic manner that would be interesting to explore again.

As Season 2 progressed, one really strong element was how it began to bring together several storylines. We began to see Major’s growing interaction with Blaine begin to bring him even more in focus as a suspect for Dale and Clive, while Peyton’s return — it was good to see Michalka, who also fits in great with this cast, get more to do — had her wrapped up with Blaine (in more ways than one) and helping lead us to a new villain on the show, Stacey Boss (Eddie Jemison).

Best of all, the “brain of the week” storylines began to becoming increasingly tied into the main stories as well. And yes, this meant sometimes you had to accept a bit more coincidence on the show, but it still was exciting and gratifying to see how all the different elements were intersecting in different ways and how Liv could learn new info thanks to a new murder victim connected in ways that were sometimes not apparent on the surface.

It didn’t all quite gel and some plotlines seemed discarded at a certain point or didn’t quite pay off. The season began with so much drama involving Liv and her family, who then were barely mentioned at all as the months went on. And while he was talked about by many, Stacey Boss remained a bit too much in his own world at times, after making a compelling entrance. With both Du Clark, Blaine and Gilda (more on her below) already providing so much ongoing villainy, maybe Boss was one villain too many. I kept expecting him to more directly cross paths with others, notably Du Clark, but it rarely occurred. He remains in play for Season 3 though, so we’ll see where things go with him next time, but he was in a considerable amount of this season so it felt like it was aiming towards something bigger sooner.

Still, when it came to Big Bads, Vaughn Du Clark certainly delivered. Stephen Weber seemed to be having a ball in the role and was delightfully awful as the energetic, confident mega-douche of a sports drink company CEO. He was also given a great foil in Gilda (Leanne Lapp), his daughter, who was just as corrupt as her dad. Gilda has no qualms about manipulating Major, Liv or anyone else and Lapp brought just the right attitude to the character – even as we saw just how awful Du Clark was as a dad, giving us a tinge of sympathy, or at least understanding, about why she was the way she was, even as it was clear she needed to be stopped.

The season also ended in an epic, satisfying manner, with Clive finally finding out the truth, an all-out “Romero Zombie” attack and both Du Clark and Gilda being taken out – all while we met a huge new player on the scene that looks to be upending the show in a huge way.

The Verdict: Nearly every week, iZombie continued to deliver in its second season and the show easily overcame any sophomore slump worries. The creators and cast seem to know exactly the right (and tricky) tone to go for here, offering up a show that has a fun, accessible vibe but can get suitably intense, dramatic and gory when need be. When the CW gave all of their series early renewals this year, iZombie was one of the ones I know I was celebrating the most. Bring on Season 3!

I just finished uploading screen captures from the missing “Maddigan’s Quest” episodes to our gallery! We will eventually also replace our older episodes (episode 1 – 4) with better DVD quality captures. Tomorrow I’ll start creating pages for the show, with a complete episode guide and more; stay tuned.

Earlier today, Ann posted about Rose hosting the Showcase of Juliette Hogan’s Summer 16 collection ‘Desert Storm’ yesterday. I have now added 12HQ photos to our gallery from the event, which was held at NuSpace in Los Angeles, California. In addition to Miranda Otto, Cleopatra Coleman, Juliette Hogan and Alyssa Xayalith who we saw Rose photographed with this morning, her sister-in-law Philippa Mae was also at the event. We can therefore assume she did Rose’s make-up, as she so often does! The dress Rose is wearing is of course a Juliette Hogan piece.

Those who have followed Rose for a few years, know that JH is one of Rose’s favorite designers; you can check out our outfit rundown page, and you’ll definitely see the name pop up a lot!

Ten days ago, Rose was at the AOL Build Studio to appear on their live show (as many of you probably know). While there, she also did a quick photoshoot. We already had some gorgeous outtakes from it in our gallery, but today I have added 4 more! Sara also added 3 a couple of days ago, so there’s quite a few new additions. I love this shoot so much, as it really showcases Rose’s natural style and beauty… Enjoy the pretty!
