Dead to Me casts react to the renewal
Some have referred to the last season’s renewal as Netflix canceling a show. However, for some of the series’ devotees, this is good as it allows the creators to adequately wrap up a show rather than leaving it open and unfinished.
This might also be the case for some of the cast of the show. One of series star Christina Applegate took to Twitter to share her sentiments regarding the show’s forthcoming ending. She shared:
“I will miss these ladies. But we felt this was the best way to tie up the story of these women. Thank you to all the fans. We will be getting back to work when it is safe to do so. Much love.”
Moreover, the series creator Liz Feldman thanked Netflix for supporting Dead to Me since day one. She also expressed her gratefulness to the show’s brilliantly talented writers, cast, and crew. Feldman further said:
“It’s been an incredible gift. Telling a story sprung from grief and loss has stretched me as an artist and healed me as a human.”

What to expect
Dead to Me season 2’s finale provided the biggest cliffhanger of the series. The installment concluded with Judy and Jen finding themselves in a car crash after a collision with Ben. Jen looked badly injured by the incident and was left murmuring in the wreckage in the final scene.
Thus, in the final season, viewers will find out whether the collision was deliberate or accidental. The installment is also likely to unveil whether Jen survives the accident or not.
Moreover, there is also a great possibility that the show’s season 3 will explore the character of Jen’s son, Charlie. In the previous season, Charlie found out more about Jen and Judy’s murderous activities. Therefore, in the preceding run, fans will likely witness how Charlie reacts to the situation.
