There is a little more life left Dead to me: Netflix has renewed Christina Applegate-Linda Cardellini’s dark comedy for a third and final season. Meanwhile, series creator Liz Feldman will remain at Netflix Week via a multi-year business development agreement with the streaming giant.
“From beginning to end, Dead to me is exactly the show I wanted to do, ”Feldman said in a statement. “And it has been an incredible gift. Telling a story due to grief and loss has stretched me as an artist and healed me as a human being. I will always be indebted to my partners in crime, my friends for life, Christina and Linda, and our brilliantly talented writers, cast and crew. I am very grateful to Netflix for supporting me Dead to me from day one and I am proud to continue our collaboration. “
The news will undoubtedly come as a welcome relief to the show’s fans considering Season 2 ended on a cliffhanger: In the closing moments of episode 10, a car driven by James Marsden’s inebriated Ben plowed into an SUV with Applegates Jen and Cardellini’s Judy, and then quickly fled the scene.
As Feldman explained to TVLine back in May shortly after Season 2 dropped, she made the decision to end the season on an unresolved note even though she had no guarantee from Netflix that it would Was a Season 3. “Trust is not a word I would use because I have done it for too long,” she said at the time when asked about the show’s renewal opportunities. “Crazy things happen all the time. We are in the midst of a global pandemic. I’m pretty hopeful and I’m optimistic about that. I love to tell the story of Jen and Judy. My fingers and everything are crossed. “
