Netflix’s comedy series Dead to Me ending with Season 3
Netflix has officially renewed Liz Feldman’s dark comedy series Dead to Me for a third and final season. This renewal comes after two months since the Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini-led series debuted its second season in May. In addition, Feldman has also strengthened her partnership with the streamer as she signs a multi-year deal for original series and other projects.
“From start to finish, ‘Dead To Me’ is exactly the show I wanted to make,” Feldman said in a statement (via Variety). “And it’s been an incredible gift. Telling a story sprung from grief and loss has stretched me as an artist and healed me as a human. I’ll be forever indebted to my partners in crime, my friends for life, Christina and Linda, and our brilliantly talented writers, cast and crew. I am beyond grateful to Netflix for supporting ‘Dead To Me’ from day one, and I’m thrilled to continue our collaboration.”
Written by Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls, The Great Indoors), the series follows Jen (Applegate), a widow Hell bent on solving her husband’s hit-and-run murder, and her unlikely friend Judy (Cardellini) an optimistic woman who likewise suffered a tremendous loss. The two bond over bottles of wine, Entenmann’s cookies, and a shared affinity for The Facts of Life all the while Judy harbors a secret that could destroy Jen’s life.
Applegate serves as an executive producer on the show, along with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. The three produce alongside Jessica Elbaum (I’m Sorry) of Gloria Sanchez Productions. Mckay and Ferrell have been involved in creating all kinds of content lately, from HBO’s business drama Succession to CBS All Access’ No Activity. They are also set to work with Netflix on the upcoming musical comedy Eurovision, which will star Ferrell.
The series also stars James Marsden, Ed Asner, and Brandon Scott. Applegate received an Emmy nomination for her role on the series.
Dead to Me Seasons 1 & 2 are currently available for streaming on Netflix.
