Dead to Me recap

Season 1 of Dead to Me premiered on Netflix in May 2019 while season 2 followed suit a year later.

The series tells the stories of Jen Harding (Christina Applegate) and Judy Hale (Linda Cardellini). The pair meet at a grief support group after Jen’s husband, Ted, was killed in a hit-and-run accident.

Judy claimed that she was attending the group following the supposed death of her fiancé but in reality, she was at the wheel of the car that killed Jen’s husband.


The two bond and become close friends until Judy’s dirty secret is revealed and a rift is opened up between the pair.

That is until Jen ‘accidentally’ kills Judy’s ex-fiancé, Steve, and the pair reunite in order to dispose of the body, eventually settling their differences.

However, their deception could have far-reaching consequences as Steve’s disappearance brings with it the attention of the police and Steve’s twin brother, Ben (James Marsden).


Season 3’s renewal and filming schedule

Dead to Me was renewed for season 3 on July 6th, 2020 and it was announced that the upcoming instalment will be the show’s final season.

Production began on Dead to Me’s third season on May 7th, 2021 according to an Instagram post from series creator, Liz Feldman.

And after seasons 1 and 2 each took roughly two-and-a-half months to film, Dead to Me was initially expected to wrap filming in July or early August.

However, filming on the series has been paused according to The Hollywood Reporter after actress Christina Applegate revealed on August 10th that she had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

Dead to Me season 3’s release date

  • No release date for Dead to Me season 3 has been announced at the time of writing.

As seasons 1 and 2 were released roughly five months after filming ended, it’s likely that we’ll see a similar release schedule for season 3.

However, with production currently paused on Dead to Me season 3, it probably won’t be until 2022 before we get to see the conclusion of Jen and Judy’s story.


Seasons 1 and 2 of Dead to Me are available to stream on Netflix.
