Dead to Me Season 3 release date speculation

Netflix has announced that Dead to Me season 3 will premiere sometime in fall 2022.

In a press release, which came on the third anniversary of Dead to Me premiering, Netflix confirmed Dead to Me season 3 was coming in fall 2022 — but they didn’t say exactly when.

Historically, Dead to Me has dropped on the streaming service every May — with seasons 1 and 2 being released in May 2019 and 2020, respectively.

Season 3 of Dead to Me was announced shortly after season 2 started airing in spring 2020. However, Feldman has confirmed the upcoming series will be its last.

The net had begun to close in for Jen and Judy, with the former confessing to Steve’s murder to Detective Perez. But upon being unable to find the body, Perez let Jen go because what’s one murder between friends?

Meanwhile, Nick, who had been trying to get to the bottom of Steve’s death all season, was given a bag of evidence by Judy which would incriminate Steve and Steve’s father. But when she got wind that Jen had, in fact not confessed, she awkwardly backtracked and was left looking very sus.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, Charlie, Jen’s son, came across a letter his mother had written for Judy. The letter, as well as exposing Judy’s involvement in his father’s hit-and-run death, also exposes the pair’s killer secret about Steve.

Oh, Steve’s body was apparently found by the way, and while Ben was driving (drunk) on the way to identify it, he crashed into Jen and Judy, who were both in Charlie’s new car. It’s likely the pair will be okay, but Ben swiftly drove off after causing the accident, meaning that there will be plenty of drama to start the season…

Dead to Me season 3 trailer  speculation

Unfortunately, a trailer hasn’t been released yet. With filming on Dead to Me season 3 wrapping up in April 2022, and the show scheduled to arrive sometime in the fall, we’re hedging our bets on a summer trailer being dropped along with an official release date.

Meanwhile, catch up with this trailer for Dead to Me season 2:

Dead to me season 3 cast speculation

Despite ending season 2 a little… worse for wear, toxic BFFs Jen (Christina Applegate) and Judy (Linda Cardellini) have been at the heart of the show since season 1, so it goes without saying that they’ll be coming back.

James Marsden will also be coming back as Ben, the twin brother of Judy’s ex-fiancé Steve that Jen killed at the end of Season 1. But we have a feeling that we might end up getting to see more of Steve, too, through various flashback scenes.

It’s also likely that Jen’s two sons, Henry (Luke Roessler) and Charlie (Sam McCarthy), will be returning this season along with her (aptly named) neighbour Karen (Suzy Nakamura) and Nick (Brandon Scott) and Ana (Diana-Maria Riva), who both play detectives in the show.

With season 2’s cliffhanger revealing that police chief Howard Hastings (Jere Burns) is in cahoots with the town mob, it is likely he too will play a big role in the upcoming season. We’ll probably also see more of supporting characters like Christopher (Max Jenkins), Jen’s former real estate partner, her former mother-in-law Lorna (Valerie Mahaffey) and Pastor Wayne (Keong Sim), the grief support leader.

So, there you have it. This is the latest information we have on all things Dead to Me season 3. In the meantime, you can catch season 1 and 2 of the show on Netflix.
