Looking for Shows like ‘Dead to Me’? Try One of These 12 After Watching Season 3
1. Killing Eve
- Cast: Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Fiona Shaw
This British spy thriller is about M16 agent Eve Polastri and her complicated relationship with prolific assassin Villanelle. It's darkly funny, plus there are four seasons available so you have plenty to binge.
2. Tell Me Lies
- Cast: Grace Van Patten, Jackson White, Alicia Crowder
The series documents the complicated relationship between two college students, Lucy (Grace Van Patten) and Stephen (Jackson White). Just like Judy and Jen, they are plagued by a secret that must stay buried. (FYI, the Hulu show has been renewed for season 2.)
3. Good Girls
- Cast: Christina Hendricks, Retta, Mae Whitman
The synopsis says: “Three suburban moms orchestrate a local grocery store heist to escape financial ruin and establish independence—together.” Sure, it’s not super believable, but that’s what makes it similar to DTM.
- Cast: Merle Dandridge, Kim Hawthorne, Desiree Ross
Meet the Greenleaf family. Not only do they run a successful megachurch in Memphis, but they’re also not as innocent as they seem (just like Judy and Jen).
- Cast: Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz, Julia Garner
Less comedic and on the darker side, Ozark follows a financial advisor who drags his family from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks (yes, it’s a real place), where he must launder money to keep from being murdered by his drug boss.
6. Russian Doll
- Cast: Natasha Lyonne, Charlie Barnett, Yul Vazquez
Nadia is stuck in a loop of repeatedly dying and reliving the night of her 36th birthday. She tries to figure out why and simultaneously break the vicious cycle of her mortality.
- Cast: Penn Badgley, Ambyr Childers, Victoria Pedretti
Joe is a dangerously charming, intensely obsessive young man who goes to extreme (emphasis on extreme) measures to insert himself into the lives of those he is transfixed by.
8. Virgin River
- Cast: Alexandra Breckenridge, Martin Henderson, Tim Matheson
Melinda “Mel” Monroe is a midwife and nurse practitioner who moves to a remote California town for a fresh start. Although she tries to leave her painful memories behind, she soon learns that her past secrets can only stay buried for so long.
- Cast: Kristen Bell, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil
Similar to Dead to Me, The Good Place also navigate ethics (however, not murder per se), as four individuals struggle in the afterlife to uncover the meaning of life and define what it really means to be good.
- Cast: Jessica Barden, Alex Lawther, Naomi Ackie
Based on the comic book series by Charles Forsman, the show follows teenagers James and Alyssa. They may have nothing in common, but that doesn’t stop them from joining forces to find Alyssa’s estranged father. And although James is a certified psychopath, he decides to embark on the adventure anyway.
- Cast: Mary-Louise Parker, Hunter Parrish, Alexander Gould
This charming, yet dark suburban dramedy revolves around a troubled mother living a dual life as a parent and a marijuana pusher (sound familiar?) after the death of her husband. As it turns out, her neighbors and friends are not as naive as she once believed.
- Cast: Drew Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant, Liv Hewson
The dark comedy follows a pair of married realtors who live in Santa Clarita with their young daughter. However, things start to get weird when the matriarch begins craving human flesh and will stop at nothing to get it.
