10 Reasons Why ‘iZombie’ Is Your New ‘Veronica Mars’

Still missing Veronica Mars since it went off the air? We feel your pain. But we also think we’ve found a show to fill that void: iZombie. The CW series, which recently ended its 13-episode 1st season run, is about a young woman who gets turned into a zombie and then uses her newfound brain-eating proclivities to solve murders. It may sound weird, but it has more in common with our favorite teen detective than you might think.

1. Both shows were created by Rob Thomas, so they have a similar vibe.

5. A single event changes her life and she becomes a different person. (For Liv, it’s a boat accident. For Veronica, it was her best friend Lily’s death.)

8. The characters have creative names, like Liv Moore (get it?) and Major Lilywhite. That was a signature of Veronica Mars too.
