It seems that the fourth season’s premiere of iZombie has been incredibly successful. The season has received the universal acclaim among critics and viewers. Besides, the premiere has drawn more viewers than its predecessor. It would be reasonable to assume that such statistics may impress The CW’s bosses. So, many of you are likely wondering whether there will be a fifth season of iZombie on The CW. Luckily, the cable network announced on May 12 that iZombie had been renewed for another round. We were confident in the decision on renewal. Below is our forecast.

Indeed, the current season premiere has garnered more viewers than those of Season 3, 0.99 million versus 0.95 with a 0.3/1 rating/share (P18-49). The show’s viewing audience dropped over 2.3 times since its Pilot. Nonetheless, this figure doesn’t look so disastrous, given the fact that a finale of Season 1 has drawn just 1.45 million viewers. On the contrary, we regard the ratings of the fourth season more than impressive thereby.
It is especially worth noting reception of the fourth season. It was awe-inspiring. On Rotten Tomatoes, the current installment of iZombie holds a score of 7.96/10 and a 100% approval rating among critics, while the viewers have evaluated the fourth season of the series at 4.8/5/100%. On IMDb, the show’s score also remains high, 8.0/10 > 46,300 votes.
Summing up, we conclude that The CW will have to take these data into account. We doubt thereby that the network is going to cancel the show with such impressive statistics. Therefore, we have every reason to believe that iZombie will return for Season 5 on The CW. We just need to wait for a while before the official confirmation by the cable network.
