Is Dead to Me season 3 coming in 2021?

If you haven’t started binging Dead to Me yet, there’s no time like the present to start. I promise you that!

As noted by What’s on Netflix, Dead to Me secured its well-deserved spot among one of the most-watched comedy series on Netflix, with over 30 million viewers worldwide. And that was just in the first season.

Last year, season 2 proved to be incredibly popular, too. And the plot only thickened. Naturally, fans were eager to know when and if season 3 would come to be, especially after that season 2 cliffhanger. But no spoilers here! Eventually, we were delighted to learn that Dead to Me season 3 is definitely happening. As we previously reported, however, it will also be its last. Tragic.

While this remains sad news for its fans, Dead to Me is reportedly going to wrap up in a truly “satisfying way,” says the series creator Liz Feldman. In 2020, Feldman told Deadline that the series is “exactly the show” she wanted to make “from start to finish.” From there, she went on to reveal that the show’s ending came to her “pretty profoundly” while filming season 2. In turn, season 3 felt like “the right time” to see her creative vision through to its natural end.

While it goes without saying, we cannot wait to see what comes next, even if we’re not ready to tell its truly great characters goodbye. For those less familiar with Netflix’s hit dark comedy that follows an unusual bond deepened by shared grief, here’s the premise.

What is Dead to Me about?

Netflix describes the plot as:

A hotheaded widow searching for the hit-and-run driver who mowed down her husband befriends an eccentric optimist who isn’t quite what she seems.

Is Dead to Me returning in 2021?

As of this moment, filming is reportedly wrapping up by April 2021. Reportedly, COVID-19 had a significant impact on Dead to Me‘s future production schedule, much like everyone else’s. In turn, there could still be unannounced delays to follow. But if there are no more pushbacks, we’ll probably get the new season later this year.

With that said, do keep those fingers crossed for now.
