Santa Clarita Diet was one of the best horror-comedy TV series. It was all set up for season four. Unfortunately, Netflix decided to terminate the fourth season due to some avoidable circumstances. Santa Clarita Diet received several positive reviews for its story writing and screenplay with a 7.17/10 on Rotten Tomato. Victor Fresco directed it.
The most audience admired the perfect chemistry between Olyphant and Barrymore the most. Santa Clarita Diet’s morbid humor made it popular.
The whole story is based on Sheila and Joel, Santa Clarita’s real estate agents. The couple started trouble when Sheila started considering herself undead and craved human meat.
In her pretense, she lived a metamorphic life. Their effort to overcome this situation made them deal with several mythological mysteries, which made the series captivating and enjoyable.
Santa Clarita Diet Season 4 Release Date
It is such a disappointment to Santa Clarita Diet’s fans that the series was withdrawn from the official streaming Network, Netflix, after season three.
Besides, the last episode left fans in suspension with Sheila’s teeth on Joel’s neck. The mystery behind Mr. Ball’s legs is also suspense in most viewers’ minds. The first season premiered on 3rd February 2017 on Netflix, the second on March 23, 2018, and the third on March 29, 2019.
Sadly, there will be no Santa Clarita Diet Season 4.
Why was Season 4 Was Cancelled
Though Netflix didn’t provide any credible explanation of why it canceled the series, Cindy Holland, the head of original content on Netflix, said several reasons were behind Santa Clarita Diet’s cancellation.
The most predictable reason behind the cancellation of Santa Clarita Diet season 4 is lack of growth financially. The producers were not happy with the earnings as they expected to make more. But it was becoming quite expensive for Netflix, yet not gaining enough viewership to guarantee a new season. Besides, the investors and the media service provider seems to have contributed to the cancellation process.
On the other hand, Netflix doesn’t seem much interested in investing their resources in this series anymore. In fact, it’s now more focused on upcoming revenue opportunities, including The Crown and Stranger things, which without a doubt, dominate other series that will bring more income for Netflix.
While it is not a thing for fans to give a damn about investors, a prominent and strong media service provider or TV network should invest in trustworthy investors. This is the main reason for the series’ cancellation. We are yet to know if we will ever watch season 4 in the future.
Santa Clarita Diet joins other popular shows canceled out of nowhere including, and I Am Not Okay With This, Daredevil, and Luke Cage.

Santa Clarita Season 4 Expected Plot and Storyline
Though the series cancellation is more haunting to the viewers. Especially since they’re still wondering what would happen to Mr. Balls’ legs and whether Joel will save Sheila’s life. The future plot of Santa Clarita Season 4 would be more exciting to watch.
Will Joel save Sheila, or will he also lead his life in a metamorphic manner like his wife? Uncertainly, the fourth season would be among the best season in this series as it would cover many unrevealed answers and lots of humor touches. But until the production is decided, it will not be streaming on any network.
