Since its release in May, the internet has been going crazy for Dead to Me.
The dark comedy skyrocketed to popularity, having us on the edge of our seats as we watched Jen (Christina Applegate) and Judy (Linda Cardellini) form an unlikely friendship following the murder of Jen's husband.
However, after an epic cliffhanger of a finale, fans of the show will be relieved to know just a month after it aired, Netflix has announced that the hit series will return for a highly-anticipated second season.
Now, the second season is well and truly underway, with creator, Liz Feldman, saying that we can expect even more "darkness" this time around and, most importantly, we think there may be an incredible plot twist in the works!
Keep scrolling to get all the details on the upcoming season.
