Netflix’s hit series “Dead to Me” is coming back for another season. The platform confirmed the season two pick up late Monday night, with creator Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls, One Big Happy) serving as showrunner and executive producer on the second season.
Feldman’s dark comedy follows a dynamic female friendship that dives into the painfully unfiltered, weirdly funny waters of grief, loss, and forgiveness. The series stars Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, who will return to the show as Jen (Appelgate) and Judy (Cardellini). The show instantly connected with viewers and critics when it debuted earlier this year, and fans on social media seemed excited about the show’s renewal. “Dead to Me” currently sits with an 87% on Rotten Tomatoes with critics, with an audience score of 95%.
Executive Producers on “Dead to Me” include Jessica Elbaum (Booksmart, Hustlers) from Gloria Sanchez Productions, Will Ferrell (Succession, Drunk History) and Adam McKay (Succession, Drunk History) of Gary Sanchez Productions as well as Christie Smith (Nathan for You, Tosh.0) and Christina Appelegate. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios for Netflix.
Earlier that same day, Netflix confirmed a new animated series based on the popular “Magic: The Gathering” franchise. The Russo Brothers (Avengers) are working with Netflix to launch the series, which does not have a premiere date at this time. More information on that series is expected over the next few months.
Netflix also confirmed the extended cast of the “Rebecca” adaptation, which stars Lily James and Armie Hammer. The cast now includes BAFTA nominee Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard, Misbehaviour), Emmy Award Winner Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale, Hereditary), Sam Riley (Free Fire, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) and Ben Crompton (Game of Thrones, Strike). Ben Wheatley (Free Fire, High-Rise) is directing that adaptation for the platform.
