They're back - just when fans thought the series might not make another hit run - Jen and Judy return for the third and final season of Dead to Me.

If you loved Bad Sisters (opens in new tab) and are wondering if they're making a season 2 (opens in new tab), then this show will be right up your street.

For those who haven't watched the previous two seasons, the duo struck an unlikely friendship when Jen's husband recently died in a hit-and-run, and the sardonic widow is determined to solve the crime. Optimistic free spirit Judy has recently suffered a tragic loss of her own and this leads to the ladies chance meeting at a support group and, despite their polar-opposite personalities, become unlikely friends. As the women bond over bottles of wine and a shared affinity for "The Facts of Life," Judy tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it.

Picking up in the aftermath of yet another hit and run, both women receive shocking news, and are ready to risk their lives for a friendship that's above the law.

The dark comedy -- which explores the weirdly funny sides of grief, loss and forgiveness -- features a cast that includes TV veterans Christina Applegate and Ed Asner as we look at all you need to know about Season 3...

Dead to Me Season 3 Release Date

Dead to Me Season 3 is being released on 17th November on Netflix. Filming was delayed several times due to the Coronavirus pandemic. But fans are excited about the show's return, which will finally see the conclusion to the final moments of season 2 when Ben drunkenly crashes his car into another vehicle, which, unbeknownst to him, is being driven by Jen and Judy. 

With fans eager to learn if anyone survived the wreck and what consequences are awaiting them if they do.

There is also the cliffhanger of Jen's son Charlie finding a letter that she wrote to Judy, in which she confesses to being involved in a murder. But fans won't know if he actually read the note until Season 3.

Christina Applegate revealed to fans in 2021 that she had a personal health battle in real-life. She shared on Twitter, "Hi friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS. It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition. It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some a—hole blocks it.”

She continued, “As one of my friends that has MS said ‘We wake up and take the indicated action.’ And that’s what I do. So now I ask for privacy. As I go through this thing. Thank you xo.”

But despite her struggles off camera, Christina returned to filming and the show wrapped in April this year.
