Netflix has announced that it has renewed its dark comedy series Dead to Me starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, with the show set to return for a third and final season.
“From start to finish, Dead To Me is exactly the show I wanted to make. And it’s been an incredible gift,” said 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.”
Thrilled to keep working with @1capplegate & @lindacardellini and our amazing writers, cast & crew for one more season! @deadtome has been and continues to be the most creatively & personally fulfilling experience of my life. Profoundly grateful for all of it. 💙 https://t.co/xbWijfG61c

I will miss these ladies. 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 https://t.co/tJXf31EDhe

Feldman will return as showrunner for the new season, and has also signed a multi-year agreement with Netflix to develop additional projects for the streamer.
“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,” said 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.”
