If you’ve already breezed through season 2 of Dead to Me, you’re in luck. Two months after fans saw actresses Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini return as their characters Jen and Judy, news broke that season 3 was on its way.

Last we saw, the two were taking a moment to acknowledge the new stop sign that was put up in honor of Jen’s husband’s tragic hit-and-run accident. At this point, Jen has learned that Judy is the one who killed her husband. While it appears Jen has come to terms with Judy’s actions, season 2 ends with Ben (James Marsden), Judy's former fiancé's twin brother, coming at them both with his car.

What's going to happen next? Here's what we know about Dead to Me season 3 so far:

When is the Dead to Me season 3 premiere date?

Netflix hasn’t yet announced when season 3 of Dead to Me will come out. In July, the streaming service and series creator Liz Feldman revealed that this will be the dark comedy's final season.

In reaction to the news, Christina said she will "miss" her costars. "We felt this was the best way to tie up the story of these women. Thank you to all the fans," she tweeted in part.

Based on previous season releases, there's a good chance the last installment will drop in May 2021. But with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic halting projects across Hollywood, season 3 won’t be filmed until it’s safe to do so, according to Christina. In other words, the show’s regular timeline may be pushed back.

That said, fans can look forward to seeing more work from Liz, who struck a multi-year deal with Netflix.

"From start to finish, Dead To Me is exactly the show I wanted to make and it's been an incredible gift," she said in a statement. "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."

Given that the show revolves around Christina and Linda’s characters, we can assume that the two actresses will return to our small screens. At the same time, nothing is guaranteed, especially after season 2's heart-stopping cliff-hanger.

Regardless, fans can expect to see Sam McCarthy and Luke Roessler back as Charlie and Henry.

How can I watch and stream Dead to Me?

Whether you’re watching the series for the first time or you’re in the mood to binge it again, you can head over to Netflix. Seasons 1 and 2 are available to stream on the Netflix website. You can also access the show on mobile devices via iPhone or Android apps.
