Santa Clarita Diet Storyline
The Santa Clarita Diet series is basically the story of a married couple‑ Sheila Hammond (played by Drew Barrymore) and Joel Hammond (played by Timothy Oliphant). The couple lives in Santa Clarita, California, a quaint and scenic town seemingly suitable for the couple who were clearly meant for each other.
Sheila and Joel Hammond lived a happy life with their daughter until Sheila died after vomiting so violently. However, Sheila did not disappear at all. She came back to life as a zombie – hungry for human flesh.
Despite this weird turn of events, the couple still tried their best to make their marriage work. And this involved Joel, the husband, helping to kill other people so that his wife can eat.
Ultimately, the series of killings (and consumption of body parts) almost broke Joel’s mentality. The last part of the show’s season 1, however, gave him hope as they discover that there is a cure to Sheila’s zombie-like disease.
What’s In Store for Season 2?
In Santa Clarita Diet Season2, we will know if the cure works, or if the husband and wife tandem actually found the cure. We will also see Joel having a mental breakdown – even to the point of being confined in a mental institution.
Expect more missing persons in the Santa Clarita neighborhood as the Hammonds family tries to find a cure to the virus that has infected Sheila, and also as they try to stop the virus from infecting other people.
Although there are gruesome scenes involved – okay, more than horrid scenes, actually, with Sheila eating and chewing body parts with blood all over her face and hands – the show resounds to everyone in that every relationship has its own set of challenges.
Ever found a couple who haven’t fought at all? We think not. Thus, even though real life problems that most couple deal with does not involve murder and eating your victims’ body parts, the most important thing is to try to work things out together as a couple and as a family. Perhaps, this is really what the storyline of the Santa Clarita Diet TV series is all about, and we must all learn from it (not the murders and body part eating, to be clear).

Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 Reception and Reviews
The reception of the first season of the Santa Clarita Diet is quite good, thereby warranting a second season. Admittedly, the dark and funny comedy series is not for everyone – definitely not for children. But for adults who have the stomach for it, then the show is a hit. As USA Today’s Robert Blanco aptly puts it:
“Death as it appears in all its gory glory in Netflix’s sparkling new comedy Santa Clarita Diet can also be a stomach-wrenching experience. But for those who can muscle through, the reward is one of the most joyous, hilariously dark comedies to come our way in many a season.”
Kevin Fallon of The Daily Beast describes Santa Clarita Diet best:
“Santa Clarita Diet is gross. It’s also very good.”
But there are those who are not happy with the series though. Collider’s Chris Cabin says,
“Mind you, vomit can be very funny; it’s just not funny here. Neither is 99% of what goes on in each episode, but there’s a potent sense of bemusement to everything, a fakeness bordering on overt coyness.”
The reception and reviews of the Santa Clarita Diet Netflix series is mixed. There are people who like it in all its gory details, and there are people who are repelled by the same goriness. We did say that the Netflix show is not for everyone. But if you like dark comedy, then the show is worth watching.
You can watch or stream Santa Clarita diet online with LimeVPN without any problem at all. We do have one advice though: just don’t watch it while eating.
