Santa Clarita Season 3 Recap
Santa Clarita Diet season 3 ended in a cliffhanger. That is why a lot of fans are waiting for the release of the 4th season of this horror-comedy series.
At the start of the season, Sheila asked Joel if he can transform into undead as well so they can spend their lives together forever. However, for Joel, the idea of forever does not seem appealing.
Because of Joel’s decision, the couple got into a fight. Their relationship wasn’t looking too great after that.
At the same time, the Hammonds are having an amazing party. Ron showed up at the party and told the couple that he transformed two people into undead and is currently having an eating spree around the city.
At the party, Poplovic runs into Joel and he immediately kidnaps him. He thought that Joel was an undead person. However, he was so surprised to see that Joel bleeds.
After realizing that Joel wasn’t the undead, he immediately attacks Sheila when she shows up to save Joel.
With Joel tied up and Sheila trapped by metal rods around her body, everything was turning black for the couple. Fortunately, Jean, Ron, and Tommy showed up to help them. The trio took down Poplovic and all of them made their escape.
However, that wasn’t the end of their problems. When the couple arrived at home, they met Poplovic’s men who were also undead. Luckily, they were all killed by Abby.
In the last moments of Santa Clarita Diet season 3, Joel told Sheila that he’s ready to become undead for Sheila. He said that he wants to be with her forever, and cannot think of a life without her.
However, before Sheila could do the transformation process, Mr. Ball Legs jumps on the shoulder of Joel and kills him.
As Joel was slowly dying, Sheila had no other option but to bite her lover. After she bites Joel, he opens his eyes and says “Hi”.
This is where the story ended in season 3. It was a cliffhanger. Fans want to know more about what happened to the couple. However, they’ve got to wait for the 4th season to be renewed.
Santa Clarita Diet Season 4 Release Date
This might be disappointing and unfortunate to hear. However, Netflix has declared that they will not renew Santa Clarita Diet season 4. A lot of reports have already confirmed this news.
According to Netflix, the 3rd season was the final season for the popular TV series. Fortunately, you can still watch it on Netflix.
The news of the cancellation made a lot of fans angry. Of course, it is understandable. The 3rd season of the show ended on a suspicious cliffhanger. Fans waited for a couple of years for the continuation of the story. However, they end up getting disappointed.
Reason for Cancellation of Season 4
Keep in mind that Santa Clarita Diet was not the only show on Netflix that was canceled. Fans are understandably upset about the decision.
For those who don’t know, Netflix already made a statement on the reason why they cancel shows.
The company’s president of Original Content, Cindy Holland, stated in an interview that the reason why they cancel shows comes down to whether or not the streaming service is getting enough money.
According to Cindy, it is a combination of various factors. Whenever they invest in a TV series, they choose how much to invest based on the audience that watches it.
Whenever a show doesn’t gain a lot of viewers, they will consider other reasons to keep on investing in something that does not do as well as they had hoped.
Unfortunately, despite the demand for the horror-comedy series and positive response, Netflix has decided to cancel Santa Clarita Diet Season 4.
Possible Storyline for Season 4
Since the story ended in a cliffhanger, a lot of fans wondered what would happen if Netflix decided to renew the series instead of canceling it.
Well, the ending of season 3 has raised a lot of questions to the viewers. What will happen to Joel? Will he continue living his life as an undead? Will he also eat human flesh just like her wife? What will happen to their relationship?
Aside from the couple, fans are also curious about the mystery behind Mr. Ball’s Leg. They also want to know more about what will happen to Abby and Eric. Will they continue their relationship?
The 4th season of Santa Clarita Diet would be very thrilling to watch. Perhaps the show will reveal all the mysteries humorously.
Unfortunately, it’s all up to the fans to create their ending because Netflix is already firm with their decision to not renew the horror-comedy series.
