Liz Feldman, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Jessica Elbaum serve as the executive producers of the American black comedy television series Dead to Me. The Netflix original comedy, which stars Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini as two grieving women who become friends in therapy, made its debut on May 3, 2019. Positive reviews were given to the first season.

The show received a second season renewal from Netflix in June 2019, and it premiered on May 8, 2020. Applegate was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards.

The program received a third and final season renewal in July 2020.

The third season’s filming was postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic until late spring 2021, which was then prolonged by the discovery of Applegate’s multiple sclerosis. On November 17, 2022, the third and final season will now be released.

The program received four nominations for the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, including two nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Applegate and Cardellini and the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.

Has Netflix renewed Dead to Me for the third season?

Just two months after the second season of Dead to Me premiered, Netflix announced that the series would return for a third and final season.

It should come as no surprise that Dead to Me has been renewed again; the series has consistently ranked high on Netflix’s most popular television series lists. On its initial release, it dominated the US charts.

Christina Applegate took to social media to express her feelings about the renewal, saying, “I will miss these ladies.” However, we felt that this was the best way to conclude the story of these women. Thank you to everyone who has supported me. We will return to work as soon as it is safe to do so.”

Dead To Me Season 3 Release date and time

On Thursday, November 17th, 2022, Netflix will release the third and final season of Dead to Me.

Dead To Me Season 3 Cast

Jen Harding, a realtor whose husband Ted was killed by a hit-and-run driver, is played by Christina Applegate. Jen befriends Judy Hale, a woman she met at a bereavement support group, played by Linda Cardellini. Jen didn’t know Judy was the one who killed her husband at first. Steve Wood, Judy’s former fiancé and a member of the Greek Mafia, is portrayed by James Marsden.

Ben Wood (season 2), a doctor who is Steve’s brother and Jen’s new love affair Christopher Doyle, Jen’s friend and business partner in real estate, is portrayed by Max Jenkins. Charlie Harding, Jen’s older son, played by Sam McCarthy Henry Harding, Jen’s youngest son, played by Luke Roessler.

Dead To Me Season 3 Plot

The two were involved in a car accident at the conclusion of season two when Ben, who had broken his sobriety, slammed into them and totaled Charlie’s brand-new vehicle.

Judy appeared fine, but Jen was obviously having trouble and in the closing seconds she looked like she had passed out. She may not be in the best of shape given that she was on the side Ben crashed into, but thanks to a last-minute sarcastic remark, we know she is, at the very least, alive.

Ben will undoubtedly feel bad about the whole thing, and even though nobody saw him before he drove off, will he end up being more like the girls than anyone realizes as the incident erodes his moral fiber to be honest?

Season three should continue in the same manner as season one, picking up where we left off with Ben desperately attempting to dump his car and Jen and Judy once again in a state of chaos.

When asked where the show will go next, Cardellini said, “I always say whatever I can think of, Liz always comes up with something a million times better, and the writers.” “You assume you know where they’re going, but then they take a different turn that you weren’t expecting. I can’t wait to learn more.

Then there’s Steve’s dead body, which won’t remain buried for long considering that we last saw a dog digging it up in the woods.

According to Marsden, this man makes a conscious effort to look in the mirror by himself when no one else is looking and act morally.

In season three, if we go there, I think that’ll make for an interesting exploration. “But sometimes the forces can overwhelm. And I think those are starting to compound and pile up for him.”

Charlie, Jen’s son, also discovered the letter his mother sent to Judy outlining the reasons she turned herself in to the police. He is suddenly aware of what is happening.

In a conversation with Vulture in 2020, Feldman disclosed that Covid would affect the forthcoming episodes: “I had a version of a season three ending that I’m actually rethinking because I think it’s important to pay attention to where we are as a species as a whole and to be sensitive to the fact that our audience is experiencing this incredibly trying period in history.

What we ultimately investigate in season three will be influenced by this experience. This presentation is largely about trauma, grief, and loss, all of which we are all currently experiencing.
But don’t expect Jen and Judy to be running around in face masks: “It’s also a show that I like to keep evergreen, so we’re not commenting on a specific time or place.

I have some thoughts about what I want to do with season three, but I like things to seem organic and authentic, not just to what the characters are going through, but to what my audience can bear.”


A developing friendship between Jen (Applegate) and Judy is the subject of the movie Dead to Me (Cardellini). Jen, a Laguna Beach, California-based real estate agent who was recently widowed, is attempting to cope with her loss through therapy, physical activity, and other means.

She expresses her loss through rage and bitterness. In a bereavement support group, she encounters Judy. Judy states she is in mourning for her fiance who passed away from a heart attack, while Jen laments the loss of her husband who was slain by a hit-and-run driver.

Judy is actually the hit-and-run driver, and her fiancee dumped her. As Judy keeps an optimistic outlook and Jen finds herself in a sad place, the two characters approach their challenges in different ways. [10] This distinction prompts the two to attach strongly very quickly. As she solves Judy’s secrets and the mystery surrounding her husband’s death, Jen gets more deranged.
