Netflix has confirmed Dead To Me will be back for a third and final season, which is excellent news because Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini on our TV screens is everything. "I will miss these ladies," Christina tweeted after it was announced. "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." Here's everything we know about Dead To Me season 3.
Is there a Dead To Me season 3 trailer?
There is indeed. Netflix dropped the official Dead To Me season three trailer on 2 November. Plus, the release date has also been confirmed. Hooray!
The trailer looks just as dramatic as you'd expect, and we've also got some insight into the season three plot thanks to the trailer description: "A hit-and-run started it all for Jen and Judy. Now another shocking crash alters the future of their ride-or-die friendship. All roads have led to this." Yikes.
Have a watch below:
Who will star in Dead To Me season 3?
Christina (Jen Harding), Linda (Judy Hale) and James Marsden (Steve/Ben Wood) will all be back for the third and final run of the dark comedy, which will no doubt pick up right where it left off - with answers to that wild cliffhanger. Meanwhile, series creator Liz Feldman will return as executive producer and showrunner. Liz said:
"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."
What happened at the end of Dead To Me season 2?
First, a dog appeared to find Steve's decaying dead body in the woods, then Steve's drunk twin brother Ben crashed into Jen and Judy's car, and just before the screen cut to black Judy turned to Jen, who managed to mutter, "Oh s**t."

What's going to happen in Dead To Me season 3?
Fans have so many questions after that ending. James Marsden recently opened up about how the third season might play out, saying: "Not only is he maybe going to find out that Jen was responsible for his brother's death, he's also guilty of a hit-and-run."
James added to TV Guide, "And [Jen and Judy] were the victims of the hit-and-run. And his brother was guilty of a hit-and-run in the first season, so the perversity is – it's amazing that Liz can actually have comedy spring from that. It's a testament to her genius."
When will Dead To Me season 3 be released on Netflix?
Great news: Dead To Me season three has an official release date. Mark it in your diaries: 17 November. Just two weeks to wait!
Dead To Me season one dropped on Netflix in early May 2019 and the second season followed suit in 2020, meaning we've had a two-year wait for the third instalment. We're more than ready.
