If you were like us, you needed a bottle of gin and a nap after the season two finale of Dead to Me, and it took you about a year to get over it. When it came out on Netflix in 2019, the black comedy with Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini quickly became a favourite to watch all at once.
In 2020, season two turned up the shock value to 11, and now we have to wait to find out what happens to the main characters. Well, there are both good and bad things to say. The third season has been given the go-ahead, but it will also be the last set of episodes.
Christina Applegate wrote on Twitter, “I’ll miss these ladies.” “But we thought this was the best way to bring these women’s stories to a close.
Thank you to everyone who watched. When it is safe to do so, we will go back to work. Much love. “So you can expect a very exciting ending. Here’s what we know about what to expect and when to expect it.
What Will Dead to Me Season 3 Be About?
Seasons 1 and 2 each focused on the secret of one character—that Judy was involved in the hit-and-run that killed Jen’s husband, and that Jen didn’t actually kill Steve in self-defence, respectively. Season 3 will focus on someone else’s secret.

Liz Feldman, who is in charge of the show, told Refinery29 that she knew where the next episode would go based on how Season 2 ended. “Now there’s someone else with a secret,” she said.
This is probably about Ben since he hit Jen and Judy while driving drunk and then drove away from the scene. Feldman says that she wants to keep looking into the “constant back and forth of, Do you tell someone something if you know it will hurt them?
“So, the next part should be about Ben’s feelings about leaving the accident and possibly hurting Jen, who he was dating, and whatever happens with the legal case.
James Marsden even told TV Guide that Season 3 might be about how Ben’s problems are getting worse and worse. He said, “Not only might he find out that Jen killed his brother, but he is also guilty of hitting and running. And they were the ones who were hit and left.
And in the first season, his brother was responsible for a hit-and-run… I think [Ben] does try to look in the mirror when no one else is around and do the right thing, but sometimes the forces can be too strong.”
It looks like “the forces” will start to “overwhelm,”, especially with all the road cams in Jen’s neighbourhood, which won’t let Ben’s secret stay hidden for long. (Some paparazzi photos of the set show Christina Applegate in a wheelchair, so it’s likely that he’s to blame for more than just driving away.)
If that information got out, Jen and Judy might try to use it against Ben if he turns out to be a threat in Season 3. Jen may have been let go by Detective Perez after she admitted to killing Steve, but now that Steve’s body has been found and the investigation is still going on.
If they can link Jen and Judy to the crime (and the evidence is definitely piling up against them), they may need to make a deal with Ben so Jen and Judy don’t talk about their crimes. There’s also a chance that Steve’s plan to launder money and his ties to the Greek mafia will come up again in Season 3.
We haven’t met any of the shady people Steve worked with when he was alive, and it was just recently revealed that the chief of police is also involved, so this will be a big part of the next season.
Maybe Jen, Judy, and Agent Perez will be able to get the mob to cover up the crimes the women have committed, or maybe they will do even more bad things. No matter how hard the SoCal friends try, it seems like their secrets just can’t stay hidden.
Expected Release Date
You might not think of fall as “sooner than you might think,” but it’s better than having to wait another year. The third season of Dead to Me will come out in the fall of 2022. This means that the last season will come out between September and November.
Even if the season started in late August, it would still be summer. We’re going to be optimistic and say that Dead to Me will be one of Netflix’s most popular new shows this fall. It will come out in late September and set the tone for the rest of the season.
Rumors About the Cast of Dead to Me Season 3
Even though Jen (Christina Applegate) and Judy (Linda Cardellini), two toxic best friends, ended season 2 a little… worse for wear, they’ve been at the centre of the show since season 1, so it goes without saying that they’ll be back.
James Marsden will be back as Ben, Judy’s ex-boyfriend Steve’s twin brother, who Jen killed at the end of Season 1. But we have a feeling that we might also get to see more of Steve through flashbacks.
It’s also likely that Jen’s two sons, Henry (Luke Roessler) and Charlie (Sam McCarthy), will be back this season, as will her neighbour Karen (Suzy Nakamura) and the detective’s Nick (Brandon Scott) and Ana (Diana-Maria Riva).
Since the cliffhanger at the end of season 2 showed that police chief Howard Hastings (Jere Burns) is working with the town mob, it’s likely that he will also play a big role in the next season.
We might also see more supporting characters like Christopher (Max Jenkins), who used to work with Jen in real estate, Lorna (Valerie Mahaffey), who used to be Jen’s mother-in-law, and Pastor Wayne (Keong Sim), who runs a grief support group.
So, that’s the end of it. This is the most recent information we have about season 3 of Dead to Me. You can watch seasons 1 and 2 of the show on Netflix in the meantime.
