Renewed Or Cancelled?
After a long time, we got a dark comedy on Netflix that was worth its name. Dead to Me came with genuine laughs and meaningful emotions to give us a Thelma & Louise kind of outlaw female duo that had it all. Jen & Judy play the perfect balancing act in season 3 of Dead to Me now available to stream on Netflix. While the former is a hot-headed, authoritative figure in the relationship, Judy brings calm and compassion to the table. They are played brilliantly by Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, so much so that season 3 feels like their show all the way.
Having binged your way through season 3, you must be wondering if the show will be coming back for another season. Here’s what we know about a potential season 4 of Dead to Me on Netflix.
What is Dead to Me season 3 about?
Dead to Me is the colliding of the most ironic of ironies in the universe that gradually turns into a marriage of convenience. At its core, it is a serious treatment of themes like grief and loss, and what it takes to overcome them. Jen (Applegate) and Judy (Cardellini) must deal with the discovery of Steve Wood’s body and the subsequent involvement of the FBI in the investigation as their personal lives descend into turmoil.
Judy learns the tragic truth behind her episodes of lightheadedness, Jen gets a maternal surprise with Ben Wood, and the Greek mafia silently floats in the background waiting to strike at a moment’s notice.
Has Dead to Me been renewed for season 4?
Sadly, Netflix has confirmed that Dead to Me will not return for season 4. It stands canceled at the end of season 3, with no follow-up to Jen’s final words in the series, “Ben, I need to tell you something”. The silver lining in the news piece is that the decision to end the show was a creative one and taken by the runners, including Applegate, who also serves as an executive producer. Quite miraculously, the announcement came way back in 2020 during the height of the COVID pandemic.
Liz Feldman and Applegate both agreed that “this was the best way to tie up the story”. Shows like Dead to Me warrant a fitting end and season 3 certainly does not disappoint. Feldman revealed in touching words the show’s contribution to her personal and professional lives. “From start to finish, Dead to Me is exactly the show I wanted to make. Telling a story sprung from grief and loss has stretched me as an artist and healed me as a human.”
What we know about season 4 so far:
Since the show has not been renewed, that is it from our side. We will be coming up with detailed recaps and reviews for every single episode in season 3 followed by our thoughts on the season and series as a whole. However, at this time it’s fair to say that season 4 will not happening.
