*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Series creator Liz Feldman just confirmed what we all saw coming: Dead to Me is returning for a third (and final) season.
The showrunner announced the bittersweet news earlier today and revealed the upcoming episodes will pick up right where the season two finale left off. You know, with—spoiler alert!—Ben (James Marsden) running a stop sign and crashing into Jen (Christina Applegate) and Judy (Linda Cardellini), who appear critically injured.
However, Feldman also revealed that season three will 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.”
The news comes less than two months after season two of Dead to Me premiered on Netflix. In addition to Mardsen, Applegate and Cardellini, several O.G. cast members are expected to return for season three, including Sam McCarthy (Charlie), Luke Roessler (Henry), Diana Maria Riva (Detective Ana Perez), Brandon Scott (Nick) and Natalie Morales (Michelle).
“Liz Feldman is a comedic force who brings her fresh and distinct point of view to every element of the creative process from inception through writing and producing,” said Jane Wiseman, Netflix’s vice president of comedy series. “We could not be more excited to expand our relationship with Liz and continue to work with her on Dead to Me and future series to come.”
Detective Perez has no idea what she’s in for.
