Netflix has handed out a second season order for Dead to Me.
News of the renewal was announced Monday during the show’s FYSee panel in Los Angeles by creator Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls).
The dark comedy stars Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini. James Marsden, Ed Asner, and Brandon Scott co-star.
The series centers on Jen (Applegate), a sardonic widow determined to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder, and Judy (Cardellini) an optimistic free spirit who’s recently suffered her own tragic loss. When the two women meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends, despite their polar-opposite personalities. But as they bond, Judy desperately tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it.
The show’s first season earned an 87% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Season Two of Dead to Me is slated to debut on the streaming service in 2020.
