'Dead to Me' Season 3: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about the final season

To say that Netflix's 'Dead to Me' is a tragic comedy will not do justice to it. After a very well-received Season 1, the earlier-released Season 2 (which is already making waves through the audience) picks up right where it left us at the end of Season 1. 


'Dead to Me' with its strong storytelling technique and murky, messy suspenseful plot, is one of our favorite thrillers coming from the streaming service. A healthy mix of tragedy and dark comedy, 'Dead to Me' is also an ode to motherhood and female friendships.

On July 6, ‘Dead to Me’ was officially renewed for its third and final season, two months after the release of Season 2, back in May.

According to the official synopsis of the second season, "Jen (Christina Applegate), Judy (Linda Cardellini) and the lies that entwine them are back. Picking up in the aftermath of that bloody backyard reveal, the irrepressible pair once again struggle to keep their secrets buried."


"With a surprising new visitor in town and Detective Perez (Diana Maria Riva) hot on their heels, Jen and Judy take drastic measures to protect their loved ones and each other - no matter the cost."

Season 2, much like its predecessor, ended on a cliffhanger. What is to come forward, we cannot tell, but it is safe to say that we will be getting another thrilling season.

Cardellini is best known for her role in the teen drama 'Freaks and Geeks'. She is also known for working on 'ER' and 'Bloodline', a role for which she received an Emmy nomination. 


The show also stars James Marsden, Edward Asner, Sam McCarthy, Diana Maria Riva, and Max Jenkins is supporting roles.


'Dead to Me' is created and executive produced by Liz Feldman, who is known for creating 'One Big Happy' starring Elisha Cuthbert. Feldman has written for 'Blue Collar TV', 'Hot in Cleveland', The 79th, 86th and 87th Academy Awards, '2 Broke Girls' and 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'. Perhaps the best part about the show is that it is created by a woman. Liz Feldman pens the series utilizing awe-inspiring elements. So much so that the show literally resonates with you on not one but several occasions.


Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum and Adam McKay also executive produce the series.


“From start to finish, ‘Dead To Me’ is exactly the show I wanted to make,” series creator Liz Feldman told Variety. “And 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. I’ll be forever indebted to my partners in crime, my friends for life, Christina and Linda, and our brilliantly talented writers, cast and crew. I am beyond grateful to Netflix for supporting ‘Dead To Me’ from day one, and I’m thrilled to continue our collaboration.”


Season 2 of ‘Dead to Me’ ended on a cliffhanger: Judy Hale (Linda Cardellini) and Jen Harding (Christina Applegate) were involved in a collision with another car. Unknown to either, the car was being driven by Ben Wood (James Marsden). Speaking to TV Guide early in July, Marsden said that he has no idea what the plan was for Season 3.

“Full disclosure, I actually do not know anything about Season 3. So I'm in the same position, just speculating,” he said. “It's going to really test the constitution of soul. That's something I really look forward to as a performer because then you're not doing just ornamental work in scenes."


Speaking about his character, Marsden said, “This guy I believe does make a conscious effort to look at himself in the mirror when no one else is looking and do the right thing. Do the right thing when no one else is looking, that's character. I think he tries to do that.” He further said, “but sometimes the forces can overwhelm. And I think those are starting to compound and pile up for him and I think that'll be an interesting exploration in Season 3, if we go there.”
