Netflix Renews Fabulous Dark Comedy ‘Dead To Me’ For 3rd & Final Season
Netflix has announced the fabulous dark-comedy ‘Dead To Me‘ will return for a 3rd & final season, as creator Liz Feldman signs overall deal with the streaming service.
Season 1 of the series followed a powerful friendship that blossoms between a tightly wound widow and a free spirit with a shocking secret. Sitcom veteran Christina Applegate plays Jen, a poised and put-together woman with a dark sense of humour and an anger problem that she doesn’t necessarily want to deal with. Jen has been struggling to keep it together in the months since her husband was killed in a hit and run. Former ‘ER’ star (and wife of Avenger’s Hawkeye) Linda Cardellini plays Judy, the aforementioned free-spirited friend, whilst James Marsden (‘Westworld’) played Steve, Judy’s ex-fiancé.
Season 2 picked up in the aftermath of “that” backyard reveal, as the irrepressible pair once again struggle to keep their secrets buried. The duo were also greeted by a surprising, but familiar faced new visitor in town… With Detective Perez (Diana Maria Riva – ‘The Morning Show’, ‘Man with a Plan’) hot on their heels, Jen and Judy took drastic measures to protect their loved ones and each other – no matter the cost.
“From start to finish, Dead To Me is exactly the show I wanted to make. And it’s been an incredible gift,” commented creator Liz Feldman. “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.”
Feldman’s new multi-year deal will see her produce new original series and other projects for Netflix. She previously had an overall deal with CBS Television Studios, who produced ‘Dead To Me’.
“Liz Feldman is a comedic force who brings her fresh and distinct point of view to every element of the creative process from inception through writing and producing,” adds Netflix’s VP, Comedy Series Jane Wiseman. “We could not be more excited to expand our relationship with Liz and continue to work with her on Dead to Me and future series to come.
Creator Liz Feldman (‘2 Broke Girls’, ‘One Big Happy’) serves as showrunner and executive producer. Executive Producers also include Jessica Elbaum (‘Booksmart’, ‘Hustlers’) from Gloria Sanchez Productions, Will Ferrell (‘Succession’, ‘Drunk History’) and Adam McKay (‘Succession’, ‘Drunk History’) of Gary Sanchez Productions as well as Christie Smith (‘Nathan for You’, ‘Tosh.0’) and Christina Applegate. ‘Dead to Me’ is produced by CBS Television Studios for Netflix.
