iZombie: The Complete Season One on DVD NOW – From The Walking Dead to The Returned: Best Zombies on Screen


24 October 2016

Meet Liv – a newly turned zombie – who can see the memories of those whose brain she feasts upon… making her great for solving crimes. With each brain she consumes, she experiences flashes of the corpse’s memories — including, at times, clues as to how they were killed. Her boss, a brilliant but eccentric conspiracy theorist, encourages her to embrace this gift and to work with an unproven homicide detective to help solve these murders … and quiet the voices in her head.

The time is ripe for a massive TV zombie show apocalypse and to celebrate the release of season 1 of iZombie, we take a look at the cream of the crop of zombie TV shows gracing our small screens. From the US to Europe, here’s a compilation of those zombie shows, serious and not, that absolutely need to be seen.
