Upon its release in 2019, Netflix’s black comedy ‘Dead to Me’ opened to favorable reviews from both the critics and the audiences. It revolves around a scornful widow Jen, who has recently lost her husband to a hit-and-run accident. She meets Judy, a free-spirited woman, at the support group, and the two women develop a friendship based on shared grief. But Judy is hiding a secret that can further complicate Jen’s life. Liz Feldman, best known for ‘2 Broke Girls,’ serves as the creator of the show.
Touted as the darker version of ‘Grace and Frankie,’ the dramedy was lauded for its gripping narrative, raw and caustic humor, unpredictable twists, the electrifying performances of the two leads, and also for portraying a perfect blend of grief and forgiveness with comedy. It was nominated for several accolades, including an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award. Therefore, Netflix quickly renewed the show for another season. In case you’re wondering about the release date and cast details of ‘Dead to Me’ season 2, read on.
