Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet is One Diet We Can Get Behind This Year

We’ve already told you we’re ditching the resolutions this year, especially when it comes to diets. But one diet we can get behind? The Santa Clarita Dietthat is, Drew Barrymore‘s new Netflix show that premieres next month.

Produced and starring the 41-year-old actress, the dark comedy follows realtor husband and wife duo Sheila Hammond (Barrymore) and Joel Hammond (Timothy Olyphant) living a rather subdued life in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita. But after Sheila goes through a dramatic and totally unexpected change, the duo and their teenage daughter Abby (Liv Hewson) go “down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way,” as Netflix describes it in their press release.

We can’t tell you what happens just yet, but we can say it happens fast and may leave a few viewers feeling a bit sick to their stomachs. But let’s just say this: the life-changing event is the Sheila’s secret to looking and feeling better than ever.

Still can’t guess what it is? Here’s another hint from Santa Clarita Diet‘s newly-released promo posters, a Canadian exclusive for FASHION:

OK, so maybe the Santa Clarita diet itself isn’t one we’d like to go on or “die for” as Netflix says, but the show will definitely fill our binge-watching appetite for at least a few weeks.

Santa Clarita Diet premieres Feb. 3, 2017 on Netflix.
