Netflix

"Dead to Me" will live on for Season 2.

Netflix has renewed the the dark comedy starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini. Creator Liz Feldman announced the news at a panel with the cast Monday.

Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes and likely debut sometime in 2020.

The show centers on the unlikely friendship that develops between Applegate's recently-widowed Jen and impulsive free spirit Judy after they meet at a grief group.

At the end of the first season [SPOILERS AHEAD], Jen learns that Judy accidentally killed Jen's husband in a hit-and-run, abetted by her boyfriend Steve (James Marsden). The finale ends on a cliffhanger, with a dead Steve floating in the pool, seemingly at the hands of Jen.

Feldman told Entertainment Weekly that Season 2 will focus on "the further exploration of this friendship, and relationship, and now very complicated dynamic, or even more complicated dynamic between these two women."

"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 1.”
