How DEADWOOD Return Could Make Things Hairy for SANTA CLARITA DIET Season Two

Timothy Olyphant fans who’ve swooned over his cowboy swagger in Deadwood then Justified might be stunned to discover how deliciously goofy and full-on funny he can be in the cannibalism-centered Netflix comedy Santa Clarita Diet. The show stars Olyphant as a suburban family man struggling to adjust when his wife (the incomparable and iconic Drew Barrymore) abruptly turns undead man-eater. Created by the twisted comedic genius behind the underrated Better Off Ted Victor FrescoSanta Clarita Diet blends horror and comedy to tell a touching and hilarious story of a happily married couple working together to overcome extraordinary–and very gory–circumstances.

During a special Netflix panel discussion held in New York City, Barrymore said it was Fresco’s focus on family that attracted her to Santa Clarita Diet, “This is a family trying to, figure out how to make their lives work. And for me this was about a marriage, and I loved Victor’s themes about behavioral consequences.” But she also dished on the more disgusting elements of the show, in particular all the gore effects. “I had to like eat and vomit and kill and, you know, we had to disembowel and there were just, everyday was a new fun activity!” Barrymore said commending, the visual effects team, “They made it look so real.”

With a grin Olyphant declared of his co-star, “You put as much blood as you want on Drew Barrymore and she is still adorable.”

The love fest continued when Nerdist sat down with Barrymore, Olyphant and Fresco to geek out over the show that is our latest obsession. While they shared praise and stories from behind the scenes, we inquired if rumors of HBO’s continued interest meant a Deadwood movie might finally be a possibility. Olyphant said he’s game as long as his schedule for a potential Santa Clarita Diet season two could be accommodated. Once he noted he’d need time to grow that mighty mustache back, Barrymore began to speculate if perhaps onscreen husband might need a facial hair makeover for the dark comedy’s second season. “I could get down with that,” Barrymore declared with a cool nod.

What do you want to see if Santa Clarita Diet gets a season two? What about a Deadwood movie? And what facial hair do we like best on Olyphant? Weigh in with comments.
