The horror-comedy series starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant won't return for Season 4. The news comes weeks after the March 29 Season 3 premiere. Santa Clarita Diet's cancelation is part of a Netflix trend of series lasting only two to three seasons. Santa Clarita Diet joins One Day at a Time, Love, Bloodline and Hemlock as lasting for only three seasons. "Every time I turn around they’re cancelling a show over there," Olyphant recently told TVLine. Santa Clarita Diet was coming off a very strong season, and its devoted fans had started a #SaveSantaClaritaDiet Twitter campaign. Creator Victor Fresco and executive producer Tracy Katsky released a statement saying: "Netflix took at chance on this odd show and for that we will always be grateful. They were supportive, ever positive, and appreciative of our work. Until about noon today. Still, they were just one phone call away from being a perfect studio. Not bad. Everything ends. This was a thing. And so it ended. We’ll miss it but are proud of the work we did and will always appreciate the love and enthusiasm we felt from our audience. It if was up to them, Sheila and Joel would continue for another 10,000 years." ALSO: Creator Victor Fresco had a "huge new storyline" planned for Season 4.
