Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini in "Dead to Me"

Netflix has renewed Dead to Me for a second season. 

News that the dark comedy will be back for another season on the streaming giant was announced by series creator Liz Feldman on Monday. 

The series stars Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini. It centers on Jen (Applegate), a sardonic widow determined to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder, and Judy (Cardellini) an optimistic free spirit who has recently suffered her own tragic loss.

When the two women meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends, despite their polar-opposite personalities. But as they bond, Judy desperately tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it.

James Marsden, Ed Asner and Brandon Scott round out the cast. 

Season two of Dead to Me will consist of ten episodes and is scheduled to return in 2020.
