The CW has finally announced a premiere date for the highly-anticipated fifth and final season of iZombie. Plus, they’ve also revealed when fans will see DC’s Legends of Tomorrow return to action.
The CW officially announced yesterday that the critically-acclaimed iZombie will return for its fifth and final season on Thursday, May 2, taking over the 8:00 PM slot from Supernatural, which will wrap its fourteenth season the week prior.
Story details have been kept under wraps, but we did recently get a first look at the highly-anticipated season with a photo of both Liv (Rose McIver) and Ravi (Rahul Kohli) as salsa dancers, which strongly suggests the show plans on going out with a big bang and a healthy dose of brains.
Additionally, the network has also revealed that the fan-favorite DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will return with the back half of its currently ongoing fourth season on Monday, April 1 in a new time slot at 8:00 PM while Arrow will move to 9 PM.

Will Seattle become the capital of the zombie homeland? In season three, Liv has discovered there are more zombies living in Seattle than she previously believed, including a private military contractor employing a zombie army that is preparing for the day humans learn of their existence. Major finds acceptance in this army, and Liv and Clive investigate the murder of a zombie family that may set off an all-out zombie-human war. Ravi’s former boss at the Center for Disease Control shows up in Seattle to investigate the Max Rager massacre. Blaine finds living as a human with no memory of his evil past is more blessing than curse. Peyton pulls at a thread in one of her cases that may lead to the villain that’s pulling all the strings. This action-packed season will see Liv take on the traits of a dominatrix, a JACKASS-style stunt man, an office gossip, a pre-school teacher, a conspiracy theorist, a dungeon master, and more.
