CW Series iZombie Re-Casts Major Role and Lands Guest Star

CW Series iZombie Re-Casts Major Role and Lands Guest StarOne of the upcoming shows we’re very much looking forward to here on Dread is The CW’s DC Comic-based “iZombie,” which is set to premiere next year. The network is still working on casting, and a major role has just undergone a big change so read on for the latest!

Entertainment Weekly reports that the network has recast the role of Olivia “Liv” Moore’s mom, tapping Molly Hagan to replace the originally cast Nora Dunn.

Hagan will recur as Eva Moore, a hospital administrator and overbearing mother who watches her ambitious daughter become a zombiefied couch potato who breaks off her engagement to every mom’s dream son-in-law.

The site also reports that “Scrubs” alum Judy Reyes will guest star as Lola Abano, an artsy bohemian who becomes the prime suspect when her artist husband is murdered.

Rose McIver stars in the series alongside David Anders and Robert Buckley.

“iZombie,” from Rob Thomas Productions and Warner Bros. Television, is written by Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero and produced by Thomas, Ruggiero, Danielle Stokdyk, and Dan Etheridge.

Med student-turned-zombie Liv (McIver) takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity. But with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories. With the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head. Based on the characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred; published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint.

The show will premiere in 2015 so expect lots more soon. In the meantime be sure to follow “iZombie” on Twitter (@CWiZombie) and “like” “iZombie” on Facebook.
