'iZombie' Season 5 "Thug Death": CW Releases Images, Synopsis for Final Season Premiere

With the fifth and final season of Rob Thomas' zombie-dramedy iZombie set to premiere on the CW come May 2, we're starting to get a better look at what fans can expect now that the smoke has settled (somewhat) from last season's finale game-changed. Looks like "2 Liv Crew" has found itself in the unique position of being in power on two fronts: Major is the big cheese at Fillmore-Graves, while Peyton is pretty much running the city government side of things. Meanwhile, Ravi is still playing "mad scientist" as his search for a cure grows more urgent – and Liv and Clive are back on the case and dishin' up gray matter.

That is, until Thomas decides to flip the script – which is exactly what appears to happen, if we're reading the season premiere overview for "Thug Death" correctly (below, after the season 5 teaser):
