Dead To Me renewed for third and final season at Netflix

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

It's a good news and bad news situation for Dead To Me fans. The series has been renewed for a third season at Netflix although it will also be the last for the critically acclaimed series.

At the same time, the company has signed creator Liz Feldman to an overall deal where she will create original series and other projects as Netflix continues its quest to own more of its content. Feldman, who previously wrote for 2 Broke Girls, will segue her overall deal from Dead to Me producers CBS TV Studios to the streamer.

The series, starring Christina ApplegateLinda Cardellini, and James Marsden, isn't ending due to a lack of popularity. It's one of the most popular original shows on the streamer but Liz Feldman had a clear beginning, middle, and an end for the series & she'll be able to fulfill that with this third & final run. Feldman had this to say about the series coming to an end:

"From start to finish, Dead To Me is exactly the show I wanted to make. 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."

The show, which follows Applegate's and Cardellini's Jen and Judy after Jen's husband is killed in a hit-and-run accident and through a series of melodramatic twists in their tight-knit friendship, became a breakout hit after its debut in 2019, landing Applegate a best actress Emmy nomination and Feldman a Writers Guild Award for episodic comedy. Netflix revealed that season one of the show was fourth on its 2019 list of most popular series of the year in the U.S.

Hate to lose one of the good ones but I like that they'll be ending the show as they see fit. Are YOU sad to see Dead To Me end its run?
