iZombie shoots scenes for a season 3 episode with Rose McIver and Malcolm Goodwin
THIS BLOG POST IS FOR AN EPISODE OF SEASON 3 OF "iZOMBIE".
With a mid-season start date for The CW's best show last season, there has been a lack of promotional materials for the 3rd season of iZombie so far.
But the cast & crew of the show have been hard at work on shooting this upcoming season & are well into the season. My first chance to catch up to them on set was at the start of October at a location close to 1 of their season 1 regular locations. Shooting on Powell Street in the Downtown Eastside was Rose McIver as Liv Moore and Malcolm Goodwin as Clive Babineaux less than 1/2 a block from the now out of business butcher shop they used in season 1 for Meat Cute scenes. The scene didn't really entail much. The pair walk out of a restaurant and walk down the street together.
I have added a couple other photos of cast I have run into in the past few months, including David Anders, Rahul Kohli, Aly Michalka and an upcoming guest star Natalie Alyn Lind (The Goldbergs, Gotham).
The CW has yet to give a premiere date yet, but iZombie season will be back in early 2017. You can get caught up on the 1st two seasons on The CW site (if you are American).
iZombie shoots scenes for the season finale airing TONIGHT with most of the lead cast

With The CW hit zombie show, and 2015 Best Of TV Awards winner for Best New Show, iZombie wrapping up its 2nd season tonight with a 2 hour finale, here is a quick look at scenes shot for the first part of that finale.
Early in the day a scene was shot in the alley near where the exterior for the Seattle Police Department/Morgue is in an alley called "Arch Alley" thats been used by almost every show in town. Rahul Kohli shot a scene as Ravi Chakrabarti seemingly swinging a fire extinguisher at "someone" (I got there near the end of that shoot... so I never saw who was supposed to be on the receiving end of that swing).
Later on this shoot moved to the very public Vancouver Art Gallery steps in downtown Vancouver. A location practically every major production has used at one point or another. We find here Rahul as Ravi on set with Malcolm Goodwin as Detective Clive Babineaux on scene, but due to all the extras and equipment set up during the scenes, I never managed any shots of them filming their part in the scene.
The two who were on full display however were Robert Buckley as human turned zombie turned human zombie hunter turned zombie Major Lilywhite and Rose McIver aka - Olivia "Liv" Moore, the zombie star of the show. The scene at the time didnt make a lick of sense, but after last weeks episode where we see Major getting arrested for being the Chaos Killer, this all made a lot more sense now.
Major and Liv leave the Seattle court house to a swarm of reporters and photographers wanting answers. Neither of the zombies seemed willing to provide answers from the scene they shot there. Whether those answers come in the courts.... we'll have to wait & see. At some point it has to come out youd think that hes not the Chaos Killer, but the Chaos....Chiller. (I know terrible joke... I'll see myself out). How will the public react to the idea zombies are a thing? How will Clive react?
Later in the night, another scene with Major and Liv was shot. This one showing Major leaving the jail to an awaiting Liv who helps a very tired & weak looking Major get away. Did Major break out? Was he released? Again, we'll need to check in tonight for those answers.
During the day, all the cast stopped to sign autographs and take photos with fans at different points throughout the day. So far in the 2 seasons here, with the exception of 1 now seemingly removed from the crew PA early on this season, this shows cast & crew have been quite welcoming of fans & regulars alike most times.
The finale will see some of the action happen at a Max Rager release party that was filmed in whole or part in Surrey at an abandoned business building with special guest star, Matchbox Twenty lead singer Rob Thomas. Of course, fans of the show know the inside joke of having Mr. Thomas on the show, as he shares the same name with the shows creator Rob Thomas.
I have no added the two videos I promised (if you read this paragraph before). They are at the bottom.
