Dead to Me is an American black comedy web television series created by Liz Feldman which premiered on May 3, 2019, on Netflix. The series stars Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, spotted as women who bond with each other during therapy, and the director himself has served as executive producer. In June 2019, the series renewed the second season. It’s about a powerful friendship that started budding between Jen and Judy. Jen is a recently widowed real estate agent, and in order to overcome her loss, she is seen trying out therapies, exercises, etc. Somehow she uses anger and resentment as a way to overcome her grief.
The therapy group that she is a part of helps her meet Judy(also a widow). Jen’s husband lost his life because of a hit and run driver whereas Judy’s husband died of a heart attack. The two characters are shown dealing with their depression struggle differently. On one hand, Jen keeps herself to dark places, Judy, on the other hand, maintains a positive disposition.
Later on, Jen discovers that Steve(Judy’s husband is alive) and she was crying over her miscarriages. At the end of the episode, we found Judy having a car damaged of the run and drive and later on she is seen having flashbacks of such an accident. Judy and Steve realise that the person they have killed is none other than Ted(Jen’s husband). They discovered Bambi who is a waitress, who seemed to have an affair with Ted. Steve, later on, cheats Judy(who seems pregnant at that time). He plans to dismantle the hit and run the car, but the ending of the season shows Judy confessing Jen that she and Steve had killed her husband, but the season ends with not so predictable ending showing Jen suiting up to take revenge.
On June 3, 2019, the season was renewed for a second season which would be broadcasting in the year 2020, but no official confirmation yet.
Season 2 will, of course, have the leads and other actors like Christopher, Henry, Ana Perez, etc.
However, the audience thinks Steve won’t return as he was shot dead by Judy. But in a recent interview, Feldman stated that there can be a role reversal all of a sudden and rebalancing, and the show will be reviewing dark sides of loss, grief and friendship.
Lorna possesses certain bad habits like jealousy and threatens Jen. In accordance with her view, Jen might get another husband but she won’t get her back. Her rudeness and stubborn behaviour keep on adding some spice both to the show and in Jen’s life.
Dead to me season 2 as expected will be full of mystery and happenings.
