MANILA – Hollywood star Drew Barrymore is coming back to Manila next week.

Her return comes more than a year since she surprised her Filipino fans when she announced on social media that she was in Manila. Barrymore visited the Philippines then to promote her make-up line Flower Beauty.

This time, Barrymore will be with actor Timothy Olyphant as they promote the second season of their Netflix original series “Santa Clarita Diet.”

They will grace its premiere night at the SM Megamall on Monday and the red carpet event prior to it.

The official synopsis of the show reads: “In “Santa Clarita Diet,” Joel (Timothy Olyphant) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction...but in a good way.

“Picking up right where it left off, Season 2 of 'Santa Clarita Diet' finds the Hammonds trying to adapt to Sheila’s now-advanced undead state -- even though she’s desperately working to hold on to her suburban lifestyle and not be defined as just another monster. Unfortunately, while the family has become markedly better at murder, the number of missing people in Santa Clarita is starting to pile up and it’s no longer going unnoticed."
