The CW announced today that iZombie has been picked up for a fifth season. The comic-adapted drama, which has been perennially on-the-bubble for a few years now, was the last on the network to receive word of its renewal.

iZombie follows Olivia Moore, an over-achieving medical resident who was turned into a zombie after being bitten by one of the walking dead. Now a zombie herself, Liv works at a coroner's office as a means to have access to the human brains she now craves. A side effect of eating these brains gives her a portion of its memories, which she uses to help solve the murders of the people she uses to stay alive.

There is no word yet on the number of episodes ordered for Season 5 of iZombie, though another 13 are likely. Look for it to return as a mid-season entry in 2018-2019.
