Drew Barrymore will be sinking her teeth into more episodes of Netflix's Santa Clarita Diet.

The cannibalistic comedy returns for a second season in 2018 – and Netflix has released a suitably disgusting teaser to mark the announcement, with body parts making up the weirdest number two you've ever seen.

Filming on season two is due to begin this summer and will see the return of Timothy Olyphant alongside Barrymore.

Santa Clarita Diet landed on Netflix in February and follows husband and wife realtors Joel (Olyphant) and Sheila (Barrymore) whose lives change – in a good way – when Sheila develops a taste for human flesh.

And if you're wondering just what it is Barrymore actually eats, it was revealed last month (TL;DR – there's lots of gelatine involved).

Following its release, Netflix had to take down an advert for the show in Germany after over 50 complaints were registered about an image that saw a finger chopped up in the style of currywurst.

Talking to us before the show premiered, Olyphant revealed that he signed up after reading the first two scripts for it, jokingly describing it as the "feel-good comedy of the year".

"I found myself flipping pages, thinking, 'this is crazy!' – and yet at the same it felt very familiar and oddly grounded, so it was really an easy decision on my part," he said.

The first season of Santa Clarita Diet is currently available to watch on Netflix.
