Has Netflix renewed Dead to Me for the third season?

Official Netflix Renewal Status: Renewed (Last Updated: 19/05/2020)

It took a little longer than expected, but Netflix finally announced the news that Dead to Me is returning for a third and final season!

There should be no surprise that Dead to Me has been renewed again, the series featured heavily in the most popular tv series lists on Netflix. In particular, it sat at the top of the US charts the day of release.


When can we expect to see Dead to Me season three on Netflix?

Dead to Me has been very consistent with its release dates so far, having been released in May for two years running.

It would be an easy assumption that the plan would be for the third season of Dead to Me to arrive on Netflix in May 2021, but unfortunately, plans may be disrupted.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been extremely disruptive for the world, and especially for the film and TV industry. Assuming that projects return to production by the Fall, then Dead to Me should still be on track to return Spring 2021.


What to expect from Dead to Me season three

*Season 2 Spoiler Warning*

The Crash Aftermath

Ben, presumedly on his way to identify the body of his dead brother Steve, hit the car that Jen and Judy were in at the intersection. The struggling alcoholic had been drinking whiskey and ran through a stop sign.

It’s unclear if Ben even realized it was Jen and Judy he hit, and whether or not the pair got a glimpse of Ben before he drove away.

This will weigh heavily on Ben, who’s likely to turn to another bottle, especially if he thought he killed whoever was in the car, not to mention being on the way to identify his dead brother’s body.

Jen and Judy are conscious, but it’s unclear what injuries the pair may have sustained. If the pair learn that Ben was the one driving, we can expect an awkward confrontation between them.

Charlie finds Judy’s Letter

After searching Judy’s room for some weed, Charlie finds the letter that his mother, Jen, had written for Judy.

It’s not revealed if Charlie actually read the letter, but if he has, then he will have learned of Judy’s involvement in his father’s hit-and-run death. Not to mention, his mother’s guilt in killing Steve.

With such evidence, it would make him innocent as he is still a suspect in Steve’s disappearance.

Charlie has shown to be extremely rebellious, so he could either end up blackmailing Judy and Jen, or he’ll make their life hell because of the death of his father.

Will Jen be caught?

Jen was prepared to face the consequences of Steve’s murder and had confessed to Detective Perez. But after the pair were unable to find the body, and had a heart-to-heart, Perez let her go free.

Nick, who’s been hot on the case, was given a bag of evidence by Judy to incriminate Steve and Steve’s father. She was hoping that Nick could use the evidence to protect Jen, but upon realizing that Jen hadn’t formally confessed yet, she had to backtrack.

Charlie has the letter, Jen confessed to Perez, and the body of Steve has been found, there many threads of the web that could lead all the way back to Jen being arrested.
