Netflix Renew ‘Dead to Me’ for Second Season

Share on Facebook

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.

The show, created by Liz Feldman, follows Jen, who has been recently widowed after her husband was killed in a hit-and-run, and Judy, who’s also recently suffered a tragic loss.  

Despite their less-than-similar personalities, the pair become friends after meeting at a grief support group. But, though all may seem well, Judy is hiding a shocking secret that could bring their lives crashing down.

Now, let’s talk about that cliffhanger of a finale…

After a shocking plot-twist of an ending (*spoiler alert* Judy’s husband gets shot by Jen…now he’s floating in her backyard pool), fans were desperate to find out what happens next.

The hit-series has an 8.2 IMDB rating as well as claiming the top spot as the no.1 show in the UK alone.

After binge-watching the show, Dead to Me fanatics impatiently demanded a second season…

This fan jokingly threatened to cancel her Netflix subscription if the show didn’t get a season 2.

She joked about a conversation she had with her boyfriend about the show.

Yesterday, Netflix announced that the show will be returning for a second season, seeing Applegate and Cardellini reprise their roles as Jen and Judy. Now, fans are dying to know when they will next get to watch the pair.

This Twitter-user congratulated the show on its renewal.

After finding out that the show had been picked up for another season, this Twitter-user urged her followers to watch the show.

Fans still have a little while to wait. The series is expected to return next year, with a specific release date yet to be announced. So, hopefully, it won’t be too long before we see our favorite pair back on our screens.
