The wait is almost over!
'Dead To Me' Season 2

It's that time of year again! In May of 2019, a new Netflix original blew viewers away with its dark sense of humour and star-studded cast. Now, one year later, the premiere date for Dead to Me season two has been released, and fans are already counting down the days until they can binge it.

In season one we saw Jen (played by Christina Applegate) attempt to find a new normal for herself after her husband died in a mysterious hit-and-run accident. While attending a support group, Jen met Judy (played by Linda Cardellini), and the two quickly became the best of friends.

As the season went on, Jen began to uncover some of Judy's dark hidden secrets, which left the pair in a messy situation (to say the least!) in the final episode. The cliffhanger ending has had fans wondering what could possibly happen next.

PEOPLE reports that season two will pick up in "the aftermath of that bloody backyard reveal."

Their report explains, "The irrepressible pair once again struggle to keep their secrets buried. With a surprising new visitor in town and Detective Perez (Diana Maria Riva) hot on their heels, Jen and Judy take drastic measures to protect their loved ones and each other — no matter the cost.”

Applegate was also nominated for an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and a Screen Actors Guild for her performance, PEOPLE reports.
