But then they put Pick Of The Litter on – about a bunch of pups going through training to become guide dogs – and I thought, you know what, you’ve kept this customer for at least another month.
Before that, the last, great show I properly enjoyed was Dead To Me – a series that seemingly came out of nowhere to become an absolute smash hit.
The black comedy series – led by Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini – 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. It’s got a little bit of everything in it, which is perhaps why a second season was commissioned so quickly.
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.
And now, Christina Applegate has confirmed that production for season two of Dead to Me has officially started, posting a photo to Twitter showing her holding hands with co-star Linda Cardellini at a table read.
What will Dead To Me season 2 be about?
Details are pretty scarce, but we do know that Jen and Judy will be returning, in all likelihood dealing with that cliff-hanger of a finale and the dead body of Judy’s ex-boyfriend Steve after Jen appeared to shoot him.
Liz Feldman, who created the show, recently told The Hollywood Reporter: “It would be the pleasure and honour of my life to do this show for as many seasons as makes sense. I would do this show forever if I could.
“This show will always be a show that explores the dark sides and the light sides of grief, loss, forgiveness, and friendship. So suffice to say, there will be more darkness.
“There’s an evening of the score and there’s a rebalancing that will take place and almost, in some ways, a role reversal.”
There’s no official release date on series two but we’ll be sure to bring you the news once we have it.
