'Santa Clarita Diet' season 3: Liv Hewson promises an 'exciting' future for Abby and Eric
As fans would remember, Abby had kissed Eric in the last episode assuming her family would be on the run, after Anna connected all the murders in the neighborhood to the Hammonds
We have been missing the hilariously troubled Hammonds for far too long, but the good news is we might not have to for much longer. Meaww has learned exclusively from star Liv Hewson, who plays Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant’s on-screen daughter Abby Hammond, that the cast is done filming for the upcoming season three of the show. According to Hewson, who goes by 'they' and 'them' pronouns, the show is being edited currently and will be released within the first half of 2019.
Last we saw the Hammonds, we learned that Barrymore’s Sheila isn’t the only zombie to have been born from eating Ruby's Clams. There are others trying to find answers just like Sheila and Joel (Olyphant). Marsha (Jee Young Ha) and Paul (Zachary Knighton) in fact, blew up Ruby’s (Sarah Baker) clamp farm and are sure to have a bigger role in the upcoming season.
These rapid changes are sure to impact the lives of the Hammonds, who have more or less been trying to live their lives under the radar, ensuring Sheila feeds on "bad people" and is well fed so that she doesn’t go rabid in public or without considering the consequences. So far, the show has been about finding a cure and keeping the family safe.
Liv teases that this is going to change. "The Hammonds have to deal with a world beyond their house for the first time," adding that so far the whole family has been focused on how to "make sure Sheila is okay, how can we make sure that we are okay? But now, it's how do we make sure the world is okay. How do we make sure that everyone's okay? So that complicates things a little bit."
When asked about Abby’s love life with Eric (Skyler Gisondo), though, they remain tight-lipped. However, an exciting storyline stays ahead of them, promises Liv. "I'm not allowed to say, it's exciting, I promise. I think people will be really happy with it."
Exciting does sound like the accurate descriptive for what lies in the future for this young couple. As fans would remember, Abby had kissed Eric in the last episode assuming her family would be on the run, after Anna (Natalie Morales) presumably connected all the murders in their neighborhood to the Hammonds.
However, they decided to leave it unexplored after it became clear that they would not have to move. Regardless, it is clear that Abby returns Eric’s feelings and season three would offer space for the two of them to actually explore it.
That aside, Anna’s false conclusion at the end of season two, that Sheila is an instrument of God, would make for some predictably hilarious scenarios. The upcoming season of 'Santa Clarita Diet' has a lot to look forward to, and we certainly are nothing short of, erm... excited!
