Molly Hagan and Judy Reyes join the upcoming series from “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas

Rob Thomas has just made another change to the cast of his upcoming CW series, “iZombie.”

The production has just replaced “Entourage” actress Nora Dunn with Molly Hagan for the role of Liv’s (Rose McIver) mom, a show representative told TheWrap.

Hagan is a veteran actress with numerous TV credits to her name, including roles on Nickelodeon’s “Unfabulous,” ABC’s “Life’s Work,” and Fox’s “Herman’s Head.”

Additionally, the series has cast “Devious Maids” actress Judy Reyes in a recurring role. She will play Lola Abano, a bohemian artist’s wife who becomes the prime suspect in his murder.

News of impending recastings broke during San Diego Comic Con in July when the pilot screening for “iZombie” was pulled. “Hellcats” star Aly Michalka was then cast as Liv’s best friend, replacing Alexandra Krosney.

Produced by Warner Bros. Television, “iZombie” follows Liv — a med student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity.

With each brain Liv consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories. With the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head.

EW first reported these castings.
