Fans of the show's creator need not fret since Liz Feldman has struck a multi-year deal with Netflix and is already working on the next series order.
Dead To Me is the black comedy series starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini as two grieving women who bond during therapy. The Netflix series first premiered in 2019 with the second season returning in 2020. The same year, it was announced that the show would be returning for its third and final season.
The production of the third season was delayed on account of the pandemic as well as Applegate's multiple sclerosis diagnosis. But the time has come for the third season of Dead To Me to finally be released to the fans of the show who have been waiting patiently for nearly two years.
The show was created by Liz Feldman and has been nominated for multiple Primetime Emmy Awards including Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series and two Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Applegate and Cardellini. Applegate won the award in 2019. It is not set to release in the Fall of 2022 as we bid farewell to the beloved characters, Jen and Judy.
The third season has finished production already and Feldman took to Twitter to update the progress. "And... that's a wrap on @deadtome Season 3! Filming is complete," she tweeted. "Editing is underway. The final season is coming. And holy. F******. S***. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini knocked it out of the park. Can't [wait] to share it with you."

From the outset, Feldman knew it was going to be a short run. "I understand the landscape at Netflix," she said, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter. "It’s very rare for them to have a show that goes five, six, or seven seasons. It can happen, but it’s obviously the exception. Halfway through shooting season two, an idea came to me that felt very true to the show — and I realized that it could be a really great way to end it."
She went on to elaborate, "It does sort of launch from the end of season two and that cliffhanger. A lot of it is intuitional. I follow my gut with these things. Also, I was inspired by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag). She just decided that two seasons of her wonderful show was enough. I think that’s an incredibly self-controlled way to deal with success." Feldman added, "Sometimes I think I’m making a mistake, letting go of this incredible alchemy we have with Christina and Linda, but it just feels right to me that this is how we should close out the story."
But fans of the show's creator need not fret. She has struck a multi-year deal with Netflix and is already working on the next series order, the comedy series No Good Deed. This is also set to be another dark comedy series that will follow three very different families who are planning to buy the very same 1920s Spanish-style villa. They think it will solve all their problems but the home of your dreams can be a total nightmare.
“No Good Deed was inspired by my many late nights during the early pandemic maniacally searching Zillow listings for a way out of my house,” said Feldman as per Variety. “I’m endlessly grateful to Netflix for being such a supportive creative home and for continuing to allow me to turn my crippling anxiety into entertainment.”
