Rest assured, Dead To Me fans, because Netflix has renewed the hit show for a third and final season. And following that massive cliffhanger — what is it with Netflix shows and these car crash cliffhangers, am I right? — that’s a good thing, because we need some frigging answers.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s unsure just when we’ll get new television. But if productions return to work in the fall, Dead To Me would figure to be on track for a Spring 2021 release.
“From start to finish, Dead To Me is exactly the show I wanted to make. And it’s been an incredible gift,” creator Liz Feldman said, via Deadline. “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.”
While it’s sad that Dead To Me has to come to an end, we all know too well the dangers of a show overstaying its welcome. Particularly when it runs out of storylines. So giving Dead To Me one last season to wrap everything up feels like the perfect thing.
“I will miss these ladies,” star Christina Applegate shared on Twitter. “But we felt this was the best way to tie up the story of these women. Thank you to all the fans. We will be getting back to work when it is safe to do so. Much love.”
What is it with Netflix and its affinity to end great shows after three seasons? Although with Dead To Me, it might be what’s best, considering the nature of the show and what it puts its characters through. They deserve some peace for the love of all that’s holy.
Dead to Me is now streaming on Netflix.
