Netflix renews Dead to Me for a second season as it tops the list of most watched Netflix shows in the UK in May

Darkly comic series Dead To Me has been another hit for Netflix, with the show recently confirmed to be the most-watched show in the UK following its launch on the 3rd May. And fans of Dead to Me can rest happy as Netflix has renewed the show for a second season.

The show stars Christina Applegate as Jen, a widow determined to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder, who befriends Judy (Linda Cardellini) an optimistic free spirit who’s recently suffered her own tragic loss and is hiding a dark secret of her own.

Both stars will return for the second season next year. The first season is available to watch on Netflix now.
