‘Dead to Me’ season 2 returning next month


American black comedy Dead to Me is returning to Netflix for season 2, and it has a release date already!

Along with its official season 2 trailer, Netflix announced that the series would return on May 8 to tie the loose ends from the first season.

The lead cast stars, Chistina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, will reprise their roles as Jen and Judy, respectively.

Season 1 finale recap

Fans may recall that the ending in the first season was a major cliffhanger. Jen, who was a cynical widow, had formed a friendship with Judy in the beginning during their time together in a grief support group.

But due to a series of events that threatened to cut their friendship short, the two almost said goodbye to each other for good. Jen found out that Judy was involved with her husband’s hit and run, and she didn’t want Judy near her or her family ever again.

They reunited though in the season 1 final episode after Jen called Judy on the phone to come to her home. Judy then found Jen standing by the pool where a dead Steve (played by James Marsden) was floating.

Are there season 2 spoilers?

According to the synopsis, season 2 will pick up from where it left off. It appeared that Jen killed Steven, and Judy saw it all, which means the two will have to do everything they can to keep their secrets buried.

It also revealed that a new visitor is coming to their town and Detective Ana Perez (played by Diana-Maria Riva) will continue to be “hot on their heels” causing the duo to “take drastic measures to protect their loved ones and each other — no matter the cost.”

Although the trailer released was about 40 seconds long, it didn’t reveal much scenes on what will happen next to Judy and Jen.

However, reports reveal what the fans can expect in general from the series is that it will continue to have its dark humor while adding some drama into the mix. It will also explore further the complex friendship dynamic of the main characters.

Show creator Liz Feldman said to EW, “In the most basic way, the score has been evened. What I wanted to do was create a situation where they’re forced together, and they need each other now in some ways more than they did at the beginning of season 1.”

Fans will have to watch out for Dead to Me season 2 on May 8 on Netflix to find out what happens next.
