Dead To Me Season 3 - What We Know So Far

Fans are just dying for more of Dead to Me. Netflix's drama-seeped black comedy finished off its second season with another twist in its labyrinthian plot, and the demand for a resolution to the show's most burning questions is high. Thankfully, fans of the show probably won't have to wait long.

In July 2020, Netflix revealed via Twitter that Dead to Me had already been confirmed for its third season, but it will also be the show's final one. Most likely, the last episodes will wrap up the ongoing developments surrounding protagonists Jen (Christina Applegate) and Judy (Linda Cardellini) and the collection of murders and mayhem that follows their every step.

So far, Netflix has done a good job at keeping the finer details regarding season 3 under wraps. Very little has been directly confirmed aside from the existence of a third season. However, the release history of Dead to Me can help us with some educated guessing.

What is the release date for season 3 of Dead to Me?

Netflix has yet to reveal the release date for season 3 of Dead to Me. Historically, the show has always debuted in early May. Under normal circumstances, this pattern would continue, but the COVID-19 pandemic has put a strain on many shows' production processes. In August 2020, Dead to Me creator Liz Feldman told The Hollywood Reporter that the earliest her team could start writing would be in December.

It's unknown if Dead to Me's producers stuck to that schedule, so season 3's true release date is currently a mystery. The fact that Netflix has not made any official statements implies that the season could still drop in the summer, but it seems pretty unlikely. So, while fans will have to be patient to see Dead to Me's epic conclusion, they can at least sit tight knowing that the show is definitely in development.

Who are the cast members for Dead to Me season 3?

Though Netflix hasn't confirmed this, it's almost certain that most of the show's cast will return for Dead to Me's final season. After all, a show is nothing without its characters, especially stars Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini.

Feldman took to Twitter in the wake of season 3's announcement, confirming that she would be working with both Applegate and Cardellini for the remainder of the project. On top of that, fans can expect Detective Perez (Diana Maria Riva), Ben Wood (James Marsden), and more to reprise their roles as Dead to Me's recurring characters (via IMDb). This fact isn't too surprising, but it is good to know that nobody will be exempt from the show's final season. 

Unfortunately, Netflix has not confirmed if the show will feature any new faces. There has been no shortage of colorful characters in Dead to Me's universe, so it's hard to expect a new set of episodes without the debut of someone new. Still, it's likely that fans will have to wait for the new season's release before learning anything concrete involving the cast.

What is the plot for season 3 of Dead to Me?

Dead to Me has plenty of ongoing plotlines to tie up before it comes to a close. At this point, both Jen and Judy are responsible for the unsolved killings of two separate characters. During the second season's final episode, the show ends with Jen and Judy getting hit by a car driven by Ben, a twin brother of one victim. Ben drives off before Jen and Judy can recognize him, turning it into a hit-and-run situation and complicating things further. Now it seems as if nobody is free from guilt, and the eventual fates of the main cast are called into question. There's 

How these events develop is, obviously, unknown. We can't expect Netflix to risk spoiling the series finale before it comes out, after all. Unfortunately, that means that things will likely remain this way until we see season 3 hit Netflix in the (hopefully) near future.
