If you are a fan of Horror Comedy, you will surely fit in the Santa Clarita Diet space. However, the show is confronting a massive inconvenience regarding Santa Clarita Diet Season 4. The last chapter of the show ended on a cliffhanger. Yet the series was canceled without giving a second thought. We have done some digging and found out the reason behind it.
Santa Clarita Diet is an American Horror-Comedy TV series. Victor Fresco created the show for Netflix. The show revolves around Jowl and Sheila Hammond, who are everyday suburban real estate agents in Santa Clarita, California. Later, the couple faces a series of problems when Sheila undergoes a metamorphosis. She becomes undead and starts craving for human flesh. While helping Sheila get over her problem, the family deals with neighbors and cultural norms.
Moreover, throughout the show, Joel and Sheila balance between killing people and being parents. Not being able to control the killings, Sheila talks to Eric. He says that undead has no impulse control and cannot change ever. Therefore, she figures a way out of it, dealing with all the problems their family faces of her nature.
Santa Clarita Diet Season 4: Cancelled!
Netflix always makes bigger decisions within small time. It is like the god of the series, not thinking even if it offends its subscribers. However, in this situation of Coronavirus, we have seen many shows falling. Santa Clarita Diet Season 4 seems to be one of the others. Santa Clarita’s producer Tracy Katsky confronts CNN about the cancellation of the show. She says, ‘We are all so sad. We have loved making the show so much.’ Indeed, its official that the show has been canceled.
Drew Barrymore’s Passion Project
The show was Drew’s passion project, which lasted for three seasons. Even though last season ended on a cliffhanger, the show is officially off the table. Moreover, the creator thanks Netflix for going on for such an odd show. Both Fresco and Katsky praised Netflix for supporting and appreciating throughout the show.
Reasons Behind Cancelation
The streaming platforms always invest in those shows, which brings up a specific amount of audience. If the audience doesn’t show up, it’s not worth investing. In Santa Clarita Diet’s case, Holland and colleagues felt that there wasn’t any viable reason to pump money into this show. It was something that the average viewers didn’t give a hoot about. But, being a part of the Netflix model was a great success for the show.
Financial problems also seem to be one of the reasons behind the vendetta. There isn’t any magic money tree that will keep on investing even without the cost-plus—however, Netflix profits with some of the successful shows. But, with others, it easily finds themselves out of the pocket.
For now, we cannot expect the show to be upon any other site as well. Netflix has this deal in its clause of shows canceled for not airing on any other platform for a significant period of time. This time is said to be around one to two years. But, there is a lot left for Sheila and Joel’s story, so the fans are not suppoed to loose all hopes.
