Netflix Confirms 'Dead To Me' Is Returning For A Second Season

Netflix Confirms 'Dead To Me' Is Returning For A Second Season

Dead To Me has been renewed for a second season by Netflix.

The dark comedy series, starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, was a surprise runaway hit from the streaming giant.

And now fans will thankfully get to know what happened after *that* major cliffhanger season one left behind after (spoiler alert!) Steve Wood was found dead in Jen Harding's pool in the final episode.

The renewal news was announced at Netflix's FYSee event in Los Angeles on Monday.

The first series of Dead To Me saw Christina's character, Jen, come to terms with the death of her husband, Ted, who was killed in a hit-and-run.

She begrudgingly turns to grief counselling for some answers, where she meets super sunny Judy Hale, who forms a friendship with Jen, saying she's also dealing with loss.

But when it's revealed Judy was the one behind the hit-and-run, Cardellini's character tries to hide what she really did while helping Jen search for the culprit but it all comes undone when she confesses by the final instalment.

With a good dose of dark comedy, the series touches on grief and bereavement as well as female friendships, intertwined with Applegate's own breast cancer scare.

Speaking about what's in store for season two, Dead To Me showrunner Liz Feldman told the Hollywood Reporter: "Just like the rest of the show, it's not exactly what you think it's going to be.

"There's an evening of the score and there's a rebalancing that will take place and almost, in some ways, a role reversal.

"This show will always be a show that explores the dark sides and the light sides of grief, loss, forgiveness and friendship."

Dead To Me season two hasn't been given a release date, although it is expected to drop sometime in 2020 onto Netflix.
