The third and final season of the popular Netflix series Dead to Me will debut in the fall of 2022. Here is a summary of everything we currently know about Dead to Me season 3, including what to look forward to in terms of the plot, who will be appearing, where the show is being produced, and when it will be live online.
For those who are unaware, Liz Feldman’s black comedy series Dead to Me is a Netflix Original (who signed an overall deal with Netflix off the back of season 2 of Dead to Me). With over 30 million viewers globally for the first season, the comedy series has quickly risen to the top of the list of Netflix’s most popular offerings. Dead to Me has also been a significant draw for award seasons, winning five Primetime Emmys in past seasons. The relationship between Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini is what gives the show its soul. Together, they have been electrifying on screen, producing both heart-breaking drama and delightful humour.
Is Dead to Me getting a third season on Netflix?
Dead to Me will return for a third and final season on Netflix, the streaming service said just two months after the second season’s debut. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Dead to Me has received another renewal because the show consistently ranks highly on Netflix’s lists of the most watched television shows. In instance, on the day of release, it topped the US charts.
“I will miss these girls,” Christina Applegate wrote on social media in response to the announcement of the last season’s renewal. However, we believed that this was the finest approach to conclude these women’s stories. Thanks to all of the supporters. When it is safe to do so, we will return to work.
Fans who believe the programme has fallen victim to the infamous Netflix cancellation curse should be aware that the show was never meant to last for many seasons. In an interview, Liz Feldman stated that she had always thought it wouldn’t be “a lengthy, running show.”
The good news is that after Dead to Me ends, Liz Feldman will remain a Netflix employee. She agreed to an all-inclusive contract, which guarantees that Netflix will acquire the creator’s future projects. There haven’t been any other recent project announcements, though.
Production status of Dead to Me season 3
We discovered that CBS Studios planned to start season 3’s filming in January 2021 in October 2020. Production wouldn’t start until December 2020 at the earliest, according to earlier interviews.
ProductionWeekly announced in January 2021 that filming was expected to begin later in the month. But once more because of the uncertainties surrounding the global pandemic, the dates were advanced.
Beginning on May 10th, 2021, filming was scheduled to begin and end on August 2nd, 2021. Lead actress Christina Applegate posted a photo of one of the Dead to Me chairs at the start of filming to essentially confirm that it was happening. Originally, it was anticipated that production would be completed by September 2021.
But Christina Applegate disclosed that she had been given a multiple sclerosis diagnosis a few months earlier in August 2021. Around that time, some sources claim that production “temporarily ceased,” and we haven’t received any updates on the show’s resumed production since.
According to a December 2021 Deadline story, filming resumed in 2021 but was again postponed due to many cases of COVID-19. By the end of 2021, which occurred in early 2022, there were still three weeks of filming left, according to Deadline.
Diana Maria Riva announced on Instagram on February 11th, 2022, that season 3’s filming was complete (at least when it comes to her involvement). That gave us the impression that the production was winding down. On April 26, 2022, Liz Feldman posted a confirmation on Instagram that the last season’s filming was complete.
When will the third season of Dead to Me premiere on Netflix?
After years of anticipation, we now have a release date for Season 3 of Dead to Me on Netflix, which has been confirmed to be in Fall 2022.
For those who are unaware, fall means Dead to Me season 3 will premiere between September 23rd and December 21st, 2022.
The announcement came on the same day that Netflix announced a new show from Liz Feldman, No Good Deed (the showrunner of Dead to Me).
Christina Applegate did respond to a fan on January 14th, saying that season 3 will be coming soon, but we still don’t know when the show will return.
