Dark comedy “Dead To Me,” starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardinelli, has been renewed for a third — and final — season by Netflix. The news comes approximately two months since the release of its 10-episode second season. Ten new episodes are expected, bringing the series total to 30.
Netflix also announced that it has inked a multi-year deal with series creator Liz Feldman for original series and other projects.
“Dead to Me” follows Jen (Christina Applegate), a sardonic widow determined to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder, and Judy (Judy Cardellini), an optimistic free spirit who’s recently suffered her own tragic loss. When the two women meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends despite their polar-opposite personalities and strange connections.
“From start to finish, ‘Dead To Me’ is exactly the show I wanted to make,” Feldman said. “And it’s been an incredible gift. Telling a story sprung from grief and loss has stretched me as an artist and healed me as a human. I’ll be forever indebted to my partners in crime, my friends for life, Christina and Linda, and our brilliantly talented writers, cast and crew. I am beyond grateful to Netflix for supporting ‘Dead To Me’ from day one, and I’m thrilled to continue our collaboration.”
