Good zombie TV series that did not make the decade list

iZombie (Since 17-3-2015 , Season: 2 - The CW)

A well-behaved, fanatical medical student is turned to a zombie at a party. She then decides to work for a coroner, so she can consume tasty human brains in a responsible manner. It appears she absorbs the memories of the people she has eaten, and so she decides to help the police with solving mysterious cases. iZombie is an adoption of a comic, which is done pretty well. There’s not too much gore, the narrative is cleverly build and even the humoristic parts are enjoyable. The main actor, Rose McIver, stars bright fully in this surprisingly entertaining series.
