Netflix Dropped a New Teaser for 'Dead to Me' Season 2—and Revealed the Premiere Date

Fans of Netflix’s hit show Dead to Me, starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, can relax because it has officially been renewed for a second season. The series follows the complicated friendship between Jen (Applegate) and Judy (Cardellini) after they meet in a grief support group.

Without giving away too much about the plot of season one—and seriously, get to Netflix ASAP to watch this addicting show—Dead to Me is at once a comedy, an emotional drama, and a thriller. Personally, I'm thrilled that we’ll get some answers in the aftermath of last season’s shocking cliffhanger.

Showrunner Liz Feldman wrote for Glamour in 2019 about how the series was inspired by some major events in her own life. “Jen (Christina Applegate) and Judy (Linda Cardellini) have suffered immense loss, but they gain strength and comfort from their newfound friendship. The story, though not autobiographical, is deeply personal,” she wrote. “The facts are made up. The feelings are real.”

I can’t wait to see where she takes the characters next. Here’s what we know, so far at least, about what to expect from season two of Dead to Me.

The premiere date. May 8, 2020. Netflix dropped a new teaser in April announcing the date.

Jen and Judy’s friendship will become deeper and even more complicated. “It will be about the further exploration of this friendship, and relationship, and now very complicated dynamic, or even more complicated dynamic, between these two women,” Feldman told Entertainment Weekly. “What I wanted to do was create a situation where they’re forced together, and they need each other now in some ways more than they did at the beginning of season one.”

The cast and crew. Not much is known on this front yet, but Netflix confirmed via a press release that Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini will reprise their roles, and creator Liz Feldman will be the showrunner and an executive producer.

And on October 17, Variety reported that Natalie Morales is joining the show in season two as a recurring character named Michelle who “forms a connection with Judy (Linda Cardellini) at the Assisted Living Facility, where Michelle’s difficult mother lives.” Sounds interesting.

We’ll keep updating as more information becomes available.
