Netflix have renewed Dead To Me – starring Christian Applegate and Linda Cardellini – for a second season.

It’s the news you all hoped for. You did, didn’t you? Admit it.

The black comedy series – led by Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini – went down an absolute storm when it landed on Netflix a while back.

Essentially, the show follows a real estate agent named Jen (Applegate) who recently lost her husband in a hit-and-run incident.

While attending grief counselling, Jen meets Judy (Cardellini) – a woman who tells her that she also recently lost her own husband

The two women strike up an unlikely friendship, and as their friendship blossoms, Jen begins searching for her husband’s killer.


The ending to season one was pretty cliff-hanger-y, leading many to think that a second season had to happen. Well, it is!

Dead To Me’s official Twitter account confirmed the renewal with a picture of stars Applegate and Cardellini.

“These two. Season 2. Coming soon,” it captioned the pic.

Both stars will return for the second season, though it’s currently unclear whether co-star James Marsden will be back as well.

Initially, though, Applegate almost wasn’t up for the role, as she was enjoying a semi-retired life that involved focusing on family life.

She told The Hollywood Reporter: “It literally took them like dragging me out of my semi-retirement, because I was very happy with my kind of not showering life and doing what I want, and just raising my daughter.

“So, what was it? It was a lot of things.”


She continued: “It was really a unique premise and show, and I had known [creator and showrunner] Liz Feldman and really loved her as a human being.

“I feel like if I’m going to be doing anything, if you’re going to take me away from my kids for three months, it better be with an amazing group of people that are of quality and are kind, smart and interesting.”

Dead to Me is expected to return in 2020 – hurray!
