Not dead for long. Filming has wrapped up the third and final season of the hit Netflix series dead to mewith new episodes set to premiere in late 2022.
“And…that’s the conclusion of @deadtome Season 3!” Creator and Showrunner Liz Feldman wrote via twitter in April 2022, along with a photo of a director’s chair on the beach. “The shooting is finished. Processing is in progress. The last season is coming. And holy. F-King. S–t. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini knocked it out of the park. Can’t share with you ♥️”
The dark comedy, which premiered in May 2019, centers on Jen (Applegate) and Judy (Cardellini), two grieving women who form a close bond in therapy. However, one of the women is not exactly who she says she is, and as they grow closer, her secrets begin to be unraveled and the bodies begin to pile up.
“I always felt like I wanted this show to be relatively short-lived,” Feldman said The Hollywood Reporter in August 2020, a month after Netflix announced it dead to me‘s renewal. “Halfway through the second season of filming, an idea came to me that felt very close to the show – and I realized that this could be a really great way to finish it. … Sometimes I think I’m making a mistake letting go of this incredible alchemy that we have with Christina and Linda, but it just feels right that we should end the story that way.”
Applegate repeated those feelings on Twitter around this time. “I will miss these ladies. But we felt this was the best way to summarize these women’s stories. Many thanks to all fans. We’ll get back to work when it’s safe to do so,” Applegate wrote in July 2020.
Season 3 production has been delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the cast and crew were reportedly due to return to the set in May 2021, the season was delayed again after that Married with children Alum revealed three months later that she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
“Hello friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS,” Applegate wrote via Twitter in August 2021. “It’s been a strange journey. But I’ve had enough support from people that I know who also has this disease. It was a hard road. But, as we all know, the road goes on. Unless some hole blocks it.”
She continued, “As one of my friends with MS said, ‘We’re waking up and taking the necessary action.’ And I do. So now I’m asking for privacy. As I go through this thing Thank you xo.”
