  • Fun facts about the Santa Clarita D...

Santa Clarita Diet, a Netflix original series showcases the gory ordeal of real estate agent couple Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and Joel (Timothy Olyphant) whose lives are upended when Sheila transforms into a zombie and starts craving human flesh.

Set against the sunny, sanguine backdrop of suburbia, Sheila’s energetic undead rebirth forces the family (including their teen daughter,) to make some decidedly dubious moral reasoning for the ghastly fate they deliver to the human victims who satiate her cravings.
Before watching the start of season 2 on March 23, here are some fun facts to give you an appetite. 

>> Creator Victor Fresco, who grew up in the San Fernando Valley, selected Santa Clarita as the location for the series because he liked the aspect of the carefully planned and organised community contrasting with the chaos happening to the show's characters.
>> The actual things Drew Barrymore had to eat on screen for “Santa Clarita Diet” were almost as gross as what viewers see on the show.
“It was always different stuff,” Drew said in a recent interview.  “Sometimes it was like a wet cake to be a fake piece of chicken. Sometimes, it was like a soup that had gone bad to portray vomit, that had actually curdled.”
3.Barrymore does not eat meat! The human remains Drew Barrymore's eats during the series were made out of various nonmeat items, including gummy bears, dehydrated apples, beet paste, pasta and moistened cake. These were because, in real life, she is a vegetarian.
 4.Sheila does spread the virus. Although she's not certain if she bit a bad guy, he does become a zombie like her! Yet, Sheila says she was never bitten to become a zombie and when she bites Joel later, he doesn't become infected. Unfortunately, Loki being a zombie doesn't prove how the virus is transmitted, but his character does prove that you can successfully kill zombies in Santa Clarita Diet the way zombies are traditionally killed — by stabbing them in the head.
