Netflix’s new dark comedy has hit Netflix with 10 episodes on May 3rd, 2019 and you’ve probably flown through the first season and looking for what’s happening in season 2. Here’s everything we know about season 2 of Dead to Me on Netflix including the reaction so far, what to expect and its official renewal status.
The comedy comes to Netflix to sit alongside the likes of Grace and Frankie, Dear White People, Friends from College and She’s Gotta Have It. It’s a mature comedy about two women who have recently lost their husbands and their processes around dealing with grief.
Season 1 was announced back in April 2018 and came to Netflix on May 3rd, 2019.
Dead to Me Season 2 Renewal Status
Official renewal status: Renewed (Last updated: 04/06/2019)
After Netflix recently canned one of its most popular comedy shows, Santa Clarita Diet many fans have feared for the future of Dead to Me. Put those worries to rest as we can confirm that Netflix has indeed renewed Dead to Me for another season. This comes as no surprise considering how popular the series has become in such a short period of time amongst both fans and critics.

Is there enough story for a second season of Dead to Me?
Absolutely. As Bustle recounts, there are plenty of twists and turns throughout the first season particularly with Judy’s personality flipping constantly throughout.
Despite this, season 1 wrapped its story nicely but that’s not to say there couldn’t be more to explore. As one Redditor said it could focus more on “redemption and trying to make amends with someone you wronged”.
Some criticized the first season as being a little too predictable but praised the overall humor of the show.
As for when a new season would drop onto Netflix. It’s likely that the show will now keep to roughly an annual release. In which case, you can expect season 2 to arrive in early 2020.

Dead to Me Season 2 Release Date
It’s worth noting that Christina Applegate does have another ongoing project. Pre-production is now starting on a TV movie that she’s appearing in called ‘Your Time Is Up’. Likewise, Linda Cardellini is scheduled to appear in a movie called Fonzo. We don’t believe these projects will be too impactful on the filming of the next season.
The likely scenario will be filming will begin later this year and the release of Season 2 will arrive in the Spring on 2020.
Potential Release Date: Spring 2020
