If you were hoping to catch Dead to Me season 3 on Netflix this summer, you’re just going to have to keep waiting for the final act of Jen and Judy’s twisted journey.
Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini should have returned to our Netflix watch lists sometime this summer in Dead to Me season 3, in keeping with the release pattern of the Emmy-nominated Netflix original series, but the final season of the dark comedy was delayed.
Dead to Me season 2 debuted on Netflix in May 2020, one year after the series made its high-profile premiere in May 2019. Following two successful seasons, Netflix announced that Dead to Me had been renewed for a third season, which would ultimately be its last.
Unfortunately, when Netflix announced its complete list of new release movies and shows for August 2021, Dead to Me’s final season wasn’t included. And once again, we continue to wait another month for Jen and Judy to make their surely explosive final bow.
Dead to Me season 3 release date
Liz Feldman, the creator of the series, first revealed that the final season started production with a behind-the-scenes snap on Instagram on May 7. Feldman shared another on-set photo of the season 3 clapboard later that month, noting that they were working hard to bring fans the final chapter.
Applegate and Cardellini have both remained mum on social media regarding filming the final season of Dead to Me, but Feldman did wish Linda Cardellini a happy birthday on Instagram in June. The Emmy-nominated star looked like she was dressed in Judy’s finest, which would mark our first real first-look at the final season.
As much as we would love to watch the final season this summer, it’s still not fully cooked. Considering production appears to be continuing through the summer, the earliest we could find Dead to Me season 3 on our watch lists is the end of 2021.
However, Netflix has not announced an official release date at this time, and the streamer also has not indicated that the series would be back this year. Our best educated guess for a release date for the last run of new episodes would be early 2022.
