The CW has picked up a second season of its freshman drama “iZombie,” the network announced Wednesday.

There’s no word yet on when Season 2 will air or number of episodes.

From “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas, “iZombie” stars Rose McIver as 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.

Other series regular cast members include Aly Michalka, Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley and Dave Anders.

“iZombie” has not exactly been a breakout hit in the key 18-49 demographic ratings, despite having “The Flash” as its lead-in. The last two weeks the show managed a 0.7 in that main demo, though has been unable to hit two million total viewers in Live Plus Same Day viewing.

Based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and published by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, “iZombie” is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Spondoolie Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

Developed by Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright (“Veronica Mars,” “The Ex List,” “That’s Life”), the series is executive produced by Thomas, Ruggiero-Wright, Danielle Stokdyk (“Veronica Mars,” “Party Down,” “Cupid”) and Dan Etheridge (“The Carrie Diaries,” “Veronica Mars,” “Party Down”).

“iZombie” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
