Netflix have renewed Dead To Me – starring Christian Applegate and Linda Cardellini – for a third and final season, and if you’re a fan of the show that’s surely great news.
I’ll be honest, my girlfriend and I started watching this and lost patience with it after about 4-5 episodes of the first season.
Just couldn’t get into it, you know?
I think we started watching Succession around the same time and Succession always takes precedent. Over anything.
Anyway, breaking the news which I briefly alluded to before going off on a tangent, Netflix told fans: “The brilliant Dead To Me has been renewed for a third (and final) season!”
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 – and the pair strike up an unlikely friendship as drama follows them everywhere.
Following the news of a third season, writer Liz Feldman said on Instagram that she was grateful to be able to continue working with her ‘incredible, talented’ cast and crew.
She wrote: “Thrilled to announce @deadtome will be back for one more season! Grateful to keep working with #christinaapplegate, @lindacardellini, @james_marsden and the amazing writers, cast and crew. Couldn’t love these incredible, talented people more.”
Previously, she spoke about her hope that the show would be renewed for a third series, in order to tie up several plot points.
She told TVLine: ‘I pitched [Netflix] this ending and they seemed really delighted by it.
‘They never said, “You might wanna wrap it up.”
We sort of just balls-to-the-wall it [in our finales] and hope that we’re gonna get that next season.
While both previous seasons dropped in May, it’s unclear whether production delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic might push Season 3 further into 2021.
That’s pretty much it – unless anyone has anymore info about Succession season 3?
Sorry, DTM fans, I’ve hijacked your article, it’s just that Succession’s that good.
