The Netflix series Dead to Me will live on. Netflix announced that the dark comedy starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini has been renewed for a second season. The news was announced last night during the show’s FYSee panel in Los Angeles.
Created by Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls), Dead to Me centers on Jen (Applegate), a widow determined to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder, and Judy (Cardellini) a care-free spirit who’s recently suffered her own loss. When the two women meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends, despite despite being total opposites.
The show also stars James Marsden, Ed Asner and Brandon Scott.
Feldman will serve as showrunner and executive producer on Season 2.
