Perhaps one of her most impressive (and most likely pocket filling) roles to date is as Jen Harding on the hit Netflix series Dead to Me. Applegate has starred alongside fellow actress Linda Cardellini for two successful seasons of the series, which follows two women who strike up an unlikely friendship at a grief support group. Oh, and did we mention she was nominated for an Emmy?
Netflix recently announced that Dead to Me season 3 will premiere on November 17. However, series creator Liz Feldman also revealed the third season will likely be the show’s last, so we’re expecting a jam-packed story line.
“From start to finish, Dead to Me is exactly the show I wanted to make. And it’s been an incredible gift,” Feldman said in a statement, according to Deadline. “Telling a story sprung from grief and loss has stretched me as an artist and healed me as a human. I’ll be forever indebted to my partners in crime, my friends for life, Christina and Linda, and our brilliantly talented writers, cast and crew. I am beyond grateful to Netflix for supporting Dead to Me from day one, and I’m thrilled to continue our collaboration.”
Taking into account Applegate's early TV work, her successful film career and her Netflix series, it's easy to see how she racked up such a large net worth.
