Can you believe Dead to Me will soon come to an end? Even though it seems like the dark comedy series just premiered on Netflix, the third and final season will come down the pipeline in 2021. Last season, Dead to Me bounced back from one hell of a season-ending cliffhanger that seemed to push Jen (Christina Applegate) and Judy (Linda Cardellini) deep into a corner. However, in the wake of their cover-up of Steve’s (James Mardsen) death, they’re confronted with the arrival of his twin brother. Before long, secrets upon secrets begin to pile up as the truth closes in on Jen and Judy until the ultimate breaking point in another season-ending cliffhanger.

Dead to Me’s seemingly premature wrap at season 3 more than likely came as a shock to fans who made the high-stakes mystery a breakout hit. But bringing this incredible story to a natural conclusion instead of dragging it out for additional seasons feels like the right thing to do to maintain the integrity of the story and ensure Applegate and Cardellini continue to deliver fresh and meaningful performances. While a production timeline has not been announced, we can expect the Emmy-nominated series to return between its usual May release date and sometime in summer 2021. Dead to Me may be coming to end, but the series will never be dead to us.
