Santa Clarita Diet is back on Netflix with its third season. We pick up right where we left off and it is still both wildly bloody and absolutely hilarious. Read more about Season 3 in our review and watch it on Netflix now!

Santa Clarita Diet season 3 is on Netflix now and I for one could not wait to start watching. It almost feels like a shame to binge-watch it so fast but I just can’t help myself.

Besides, it picks up right where it left off, so it’s hard not to just keep going. Do yourself a favor and watch the summary of the story so far – it’s included on Netflix. Just to remind yourself of all the crazy stuff from season 2.

All your favorite characters (or mine anyway) from season 2 are still here and some new ones come on board. 

Officer Anne is now a disciple of Sheila

When season 2 ended, Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and Joel (Timothy Olyphant) revealed to police officer Anne Garcia (Natalie Morales) that Sheila is… well, special. When Anne tried to shoot Sheila – with fairly good reason – she realized she could not kill her.

This resulted in Anne believing Sheila was literally a Godsend. Being a very devout Christian, Anne starts season 3 of Santa Clarity Diet by being a loyal servant of Sheila. It’s a bit weird to both Sheila and Joel, but they quickly come around to it.

After all, it’s not bad having a police officer on their side. And it’s certainly better than having her on their trail all the time. Of course, she doesn’t know about Sheila’s need for human flesh. She also cannot keep her mouth shut about the miracle of the undead Sheila, so she shares the news with her church group a bit too fast.

Natalie Morales is brilliant as officer Anne. Of course, she always has been but this offers up a whole new dimension of her character. Also, it gives her more screentime, which I am all for.

Santa Clarita Diet: Season 3 Review Netflix

The Knights of Serbia

When season 3 of Sana Clarita Diet opens, we’re not even in Santa Clarita. We’re in Serbia watching Dobrivoje Poplovic (Goran Visnjic) interrogate someone he suspects is an undead.

Things escalate quickly and Goran Visnjic’s character ends up being transferred to Santa Clarita where Joel meets him pretty soon after.

You might think he’s part of “The Knights of Serbia” who turns out to be an ancient order that hunts the undead. But you would be wrong. It’s clear from the onset that Poplovic (Goran Visnjic) want the undead for himself.

Also, what is up with that spider-creature lovingly called “Mr. Ball legs” by Sheila and Joel? You’ll have to watch season 3 to find out.

Watch season 3 of Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix

If you’ve enjoyed the first two seasons of Santa Clarita Diet, then obviously you’re excited about season 3 coming out. This show really is an insanely quick binge-watch due to its episodes being at just around 30 minutes.

Still, just enjoy it and show Netflix that you still love Santa Clarita Diet so we can get season 4 as soon as possible.

Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant are at least as awesome this third time around as they were in the beginning. Whenever I watch an episode of Santa Clarita Diet I find myself with a huge grin on my face.

Also, it still continues to surprise with its crazy twists which means our protagonists are always on the brink of disaster.

Season 3 of Santa Clarita Diet is released on Netflix worldwide on March 29, 2019.


Creator: Victor Fresco
Cast: Drew Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant, Liv Hewson, Skyler Gisondo, Natalie Morales 


Sheila searches for meaning, Joel investigates a secret society, and Abby struggles with her feelings for Eric. Life and undeath can be so stressful.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
