'iZombie' season 3 news, release date: Liv discovers zombie society; Major helps Liv solve crimes

In the upcoming season of "iZombie," Liv (Rose McIver) will continue to lend her zombie abilities to solve crimes. She, however, will not be going solo this season, as she will be joined by her former fiancée, Major (Robert Buckley).

(Facebook/iZombie)"iZombie" season 3 returns this April on The CW.

According to TV Line, the pair will be fighting crime by sharing the task. In the second episode of season 3, they will have to eat the brains of a father and daughter. They, however, will somehow get them mixed up. Major will end up eating the 14-year-old daughter's brain, and Liv will eat the dad's.

Buckley told the media at the Television Critics Association (TCA) winter press tour, which was held last weekend, the story of how the episode was pitched to him. Buckley said, "They had told me in the off-season, 'We have a great episode for you. It's perfect for you'. As an actor, that's exciting, like is he going to be a cage fighter or a lothario? They were like, 'No, for you, a 14-year-old teenage girl."

The actor teased that balancing the macho bravado of Major and a girly 14-year-old for the role was challenging.

As teased in a synopsis for the entire season 3, Liv will discover a whole new society of zombies, an army in particular that's being employed by a private military contractor. Eventually, Major will land a job in the army. Furthermore, the season 3 teaser reveals that Liv will be transforming into a dominatrix, a Jackass-style stuntman, an office gossip, a pre-school teacher and more.

Season 3 is a season of change for Major because aside from taking on different characteristics from brains week after week, the former zombie hunter also gets a new job in the new season. According to the synopsis for season 3, Major becomes a member of Fillmore Grave's zombie army where he surprisingly finds acceptance.

"iZombie" returns with a two-hour premiere on April 4, Tuesday, at 8 p.m. EST on The CW before it switches to its regular time slot at 9 p.m. EST.
