Santa Clarita Diet – Picture from Netflix

With guts and gore aplenty and a whole heap of laughs, the latest season of Santa Clarita Diet has once again been a great success. The most important question we and the fans have right now is whether Netflix has renewed Santa Clarita Diet for a fourth season and when will season 4 of Santa Clarita Diet be coming to Netflix? 

Santa Clarita Diet is a Netflix Original horror-comedy series created by Victor Fresco. The zombie horror-comedy is a fan favorite with many falling in love between the onscreen relationship between Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant.

With a superb blend of comedy and horror (mostly gore), it’s not hard to see why the title has become one of the most beloved titles Netflix has to offer. After another great season, we can see a huge demand for a fourth season.

Sheila and Joel are an ordinary husband and wife realtors until Sheila undergoes a dramatic change that sends them down a road of death and destruction. In a good way.

Has Santa Clarita Diet been renewed for season 4?

Santa Clarita Diet Official Renewal Status for Season 4: Canceled (Last Updated 04/27/2019)

The show has been canceled after three seasons.

Despite the positive reaction (and the massive cliffhanger ending, which we’ll get onto below) Netflix couldn’t break the dreaded three season curse most of its shows seem to face.

Timothy Olyphant did a recent interview where he suggested the show was next in line for cancelation but was mainly talking about other shows.

In a statement, the creators of the show said the following:

“Like our audience, we were all-in on Sheila and Joel. Their relationship, in the face of incredible adversity, was inspiring to write and to watch. Mostly, they were funny, which in a comedy is important. Working with Drew and Tim, along with the immensely talented Liv and Skyler, was a joy and a once in a lifetime experience. Netflix took at chance on this odd show and for that we will always be grateful. They were supportive, ever positive, and appreciative of our work. Until about noon today. Still, they were just one phone call away from being a perfect studio. Not bad. Everything ends. This was a thing. And so it ended. We’ll miss it but are proud of the work we did and will always appreciate the love and enthusiasm we felt from our audience. It if was up to them, Sheila and Joel would continue for another 10,000 years.”

Now the show joins the ever-growing Netflix graveyard of canceled shows.

Now let’s take a look into the decision and why Netflix canceled Santa Clarita Diet.

Was there enough story for Santa Clarita Diet season 4?

Most certainly. Once again the season ended on another cliffhanger! While some doors closed from a story standpoint that ending just blew the doors down for more fun to come in the next season.

There are plenty of cliffhangers after episode 10 of Santa Clarita Diet that leads into season 4. These include the incredibly action-packed last minute or two where Mr. Ball looks to have taken control of Joel’s brain. Some have even speculated that it looks like the ball is even going to eat Joel.
