This emotional ride of the bond between the two is what adds to the wild plot, and if you are among those waiting desperately for season 3 to be out, then we got you covered in this article!
Is Season 3 of Dead to Me on Cards?
We know it’s been almost more than a year since Dead to Me’s season 2 aired on Netflix in May 2020 and had a total of ten episodes to its credit. But what kept us waiting for season 3 was the fact that it was renewed in July of last year, and the ending of season 2 clearly paved the way for the subsequent installment. Adding to its renewal was the show’s immense popularity worldwide that Netflix surely wanted to make use of. Now let’s find out when it be released.
When will Season 3 of Dead to Me Release?
Before we come to the release date part, here’s the bad news. The season will be the show’s finale, and no more progression will be seen in that regard. Owing to the creator’s decision to make the series a short one is great in its own way because the essence of the story is kept alive, and this will surely make us more eager to see Judy and Jen in their outstanding wild roles for one; last time!
We saw season 1 and 2 with a year gap in their releases, but for season 3, it could be a little longer too. Pandemic-related restrictions put the latest season’s production to a halt, added by Christina Applegate taking a break from work due to health issues. But in November this year, the creation has kick-started once again, and if everything goes well, then season 3 of Dead to Me can land before us somewhere in mid-2022.
What can Season 3 of Dead to Me be About?
In the previous season, it was seen that Judy and Jen were dealing with the repercussions of the death of Steve. Their friendship was tested when they fled from the situation by hiding the body of Steve. Jen was seen developing feelings for Ben, Steve’s twin, and she ultimately confronts detective Perez about the entire situation. Towards the end of the season, we saw both the friends reconciled and happy and their car getting hit by that of drunk Ben’s.
In upcoming season 3, we could see the story being picked from where it ended in the previous one. The fate of Judy, Jen, and Ben will be revealed after the accident. The season will also show how Charlie and Henry will be co-parented by Judy and Jen and Charlie discovering their hidden secrets.
It is also speculated that the last season can see Jen being pregnant, and Judy’s reaction to the entire situation will be worth watching as she had faced miscarriages in the past. Thus, the finale will be high on emotions and complex scenarios for our leading ladies and consequently for the viewers.
