Netflix has announced that it has renewed its dark comedy series Dead to Me starring Christina Applegate (Bad Moms) and Linda Cardellini (The Curse of La Llorona) for a second season.
Created by Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls), “Dead to Me centers on Jen (Applegate), a sardonic widow determined to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder, and Judy (Cardellini) an optimistic free spirit who’s recently suffered her own tragic loss. When the two women meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends, despite their polar-opposite personalities. But as they bond over bottles of wine, Entenmann’s cookies and a shared affinity for The Facts of Life, Judy desperately tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it.”
Dead to Me also stars James Marsden (Westworld), Ed Asner (The Mary Tyler Moore Show) and Brandon Scott (Grey’s Anatomy). Feldman will again showrun the second season with Applegate producing alongside Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Christie Smith.
