The final season of The CW’s ‘iZombie’ is about to kick off and showrunner Rob Thomas is opening up a bit about what we can expect. The most important detail he shares is that there will be “no cliffhangers” when the end credits roll! This will be a massive relief to not only fans of the series but what many have come to see happen in what Rob has put together in the past.
There are only 13-episodes in the fifth season with a lot of ground to cover and Thomas shares that:
“Basically. I don’t know that we had all the details, but I’ve known the answers to the big picture questions. There are certain things I didn’t know at the beginning, like the notion of Ravi and Peyton being a couple, for example. We didn’t think about that going in — it was only watching those two on the screen together that that became interesting to us. Some of those details that have happened along the way are things we’ve picked up, but in terms of the big story of Liv, the zombie outbreak and how it was resolved in Seattle, that we’ve kind of known the whole time.”
So while we won’t get every single little detail about what happens with the characters, the overall story arcs are being handled, and when it comes to cliffhangers they plan to wrap things up “very neatly” as:
“There will be no cliffhangers. For the first time in my career, I know that this show is going to be over at the end of the season. It is in a lovely bow at the end of the season. We will answer all of the big, long-term arc questions. You’ll get answers to just about everything before the season ends.”
This is fantastic news with how often things are left up in the air with shows these days.
