4. Dead to Me season 1

Say hello to Dead to Me season 1, a new Netflix series that fell right outside of a top three spot on the list. I have a funny feeling I might regret not ranking it higher.

Dead to Me will be available to stream at the very start of the month on May 3. Christina Applegate, who is making her return to the small screen for the first time in a number of years, will be joined by Linda Cardellini, who has recently been appearing a number of different movies recently, including, Scooby-Doo, The Avengers, and The Curse of La Llorona, in the new series.  James Marsden is also set to star.

Feeling very bitter and angry at the world following the sad and violent death of her husband, Jen, who is played by Applegate, meets Judy, portrayed by Cardellini. Judy is also a widow but is not as angry as Jen. The two form a bond, and very soon, a friendship blossoms. Jen allows Judy’s friendship to become a huge part of her life. However, nothing is ever as it seems, and as the friendship grows between the two, a dark and shocking secret rears its head and causes trouble.

This is an offbeat, witty, and emotional comedy-drama series that is sure to be hit and something we will be talking about for months on Netflix Life. Have fun watching the show when it arrives on May 3.
