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 question we're all asking is... when will we get to watch the second season?
Dead to Me first hit our screens last month.
