How to watch ‘iZombie’ season 5 online for free

Seattle is known for many things: great coffee, the grunge scene, and zombies. The teen sci-fi series iZombie returns for one last taste of flesh before finally joining the dead.

After taking the experimental drug Utopium mixed with Max Rager energy drink, medical resident Liv Moore suddenly got the craving for human brains. If ever there was a “good” zombie, Moore certainly qualifies. She only eats brains of the recently deceased, usually to her detriment, taking on the dead person’s quirks and memories. With this newfound perspective from the brains she eats, she brings justice to the crime victims of Seattle and assists police with apprehending murderers.

The show is directed by Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright, who co-created the iconic series Veronica Mars together. Sadly, season 5 of iZombie will be its last, so get in on this popular show while you still can. 

Here’s everything you need to know to watch iZombie online for free.

2) FuboTV

FuboTV only includes a live stream of the CW in select areas, so be sure to check before subscribing. Otherwise, you can watch on-demand the next day. If you’re also a sports fan, there are different channel packages available whether you’re looking for basketball, soccer, golf, and even outdoor sports like rock climbing. But no worries, all the great cable channels you’re after are present too, including Viceland, Bravo, TBS, and IFC. Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.

3) YouTube TV

YouTube TV is similar to FuboTV in its limitations to the CW, so be sure to check ahead of time. It’s a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts. Each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR. There are sports channels like NBCSN, NBA TV, and four ESPN channels. Disney, Disney XD, Disney Junior, and Cartoon Network will keep any kid (or kid at heart) busy for hours. It also comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. AMC, BBC America, and IFC are there too, so you won’t miss out on all that prestige TV. (You can find the full list of YouTube TV channels here.)
