Santa Clarita Diet: Shalita Grant to play recurring role in season 3


NCIS alum, Shalita Grant, is heading to the land of the dead in season 3 of Santa Clarita Diet!

Santa Clarita Diet is releasing more and more news regarding the next season, and we are stoked! Shalita Grant, of NCIS: New Orleans, will be joining the cast for season 3 in a recurring role. What is the role you may ask?

She will be playing opposite Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore, according to Deadline, and will be in the role of an FBI agent named Tess Rogers who steps in to investigate a fracking site explosion (we all remember that, don’t we?).

Santa Clarita Diet, is a story about a husband (Joel) and wife (Sheila) realtor duo, played by Olyphant and Barrymore, who find their lives taking an odd turn when Sheila sort of dies and becomes a zombie. Yup, a zombie. The story is hilariously entertaining and watching them, along with their daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), figure out a cure and the cause for the virus is so ridiculous and a hoot to watch.

The creator of the series, Victor Fresco, executive produces the series alongside Barrymore through her company, Flower Films, as well with Olyphant. They make a pretty stellar team, don’t they? After her stint on NCIS, it is safe to assume Grant loves law enforcement roles and it will be fun to see her take on the role of Tess under very odd circumstances, as we’re sure she’ll come to find out.
