Dead to Me has been renewed for a third and final season by Netflix.
The series stars Christina Applegate as Jen, a sardonic widow determined to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder, and Judy (Linda Cardellini), an optimistic free spirit who’s recently suffered her own tragic loss. When the two women meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends despite their polar-opposite personalities.
“From start to finish, Dead to Me is exactly the show I wanted to make,” creator Liz Feldman said. “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.”
Netflix has also announced that it has inked a multi-year deal with series Feldman for other projects.
“Liz Feldman is a comedic force who brings her fresh and distinct point of view to every element of the creative process from inception through writing and producing,” said Jane Wiseman, vice president of comedy series. “We could not be more excited to expand our relationship with Liz and continue to work with her on Dead to Me and future series to come.”
