It’s been another stellar season for Dead to Me on Netflix, and fans simply can’t get enough of Jen and Judy. Hungry for more, Netflix will have a subscriber riot on their hands if they don’t renew the series for a third season. Speaking of, we’ll be keeping track of all things season three, including the Netflix renewal status, plot, casting news, and potential release dates
Dead to Me is a Netflix Original black-comedy series created by Liz Feldman. The series has fast become one of the most-watched comedy series on Netflix, having amassed an audience of over 30 million worldwide in the first season.
The soul of the series belongs to the chemistry between Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini. On-screen together they have been electric, making for some truly hilarious comedy, and heart-wrenching drama.
Has Netflix renewed Dead to Me for the third season?
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Pending (Last Updated: 19/05/2020)
At the time of writing, Netflix has yet to announce whether or not Dead to Me will be returning for a third season.
Netflix determines whether or not a series is worth renewing by going off date, in particular, how many subscribers returned to watch the second season, new viewers, and how many watched all ten episodes.
We don’t think fans will have to worry about the future of Dead to Me, thanks to the fact that the series has been top of the most popular tv shows on Netflix US since the second season release. Dead to Me has also featured heavily in the top three of other regions around the world.

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.
