Today at its upfront presentation for the 2018-2019 season, The CW announced that Season 5 of iZombie will be its last. The news comes the week after the veteran drama earned a last minute renewal for what will now be its final season.

While a show's fans never like to hear of it coming to an end, advanced notice like this does give showrunners an opportunity to craft a proper ending to the story - a situation much more desirable than when a show gets axed after a season-ending cliffhanger, as is what happens to so many.

The fifth and final season of iZombie was slotted in once again as a mid-season entry, meaning a premiere in early 2019 is likely.
