'Dead To Me' Season 2 Premieres May 8

It's been nothing but a slew of bad news from the entertainment world lately. It seems like all of our favorite movies and TV shows are getting further and further delayed.

But there is a sliver of hope, a ray of sunshine in our otherwise cloudy day.

Netflix has just confirmed that Dead to Me season 2 is all set to return on May 8th. And fans everywhere are ecstatic!

*Dead to Me* is a dark dramedy starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini.


The pair meet in a bereavement therapy group and quickly bond over their shared misery.

Kind of like a dark version of The Odd Couple.

The Netflix original received high praise from audiences and critics alike in its first season.


The show was beloved for its ability to deal with such a sensitive subject like the death of a loved one in an incredibly humorous yet therapeutic way.

It also ended on one heck of a cliff hanger...


Which sent fans reeling! The Twitterverse had become awash in fan theories.

Everyone wanted to try and figure out what else was in store!

Shortly after season 1 concluded, Netflix signed on for another.

Linda Cardellini posted this photo via her Instagram page as a way to commemorate the occasion.

It was time to get back to work!

Which had fans everywhere celebrating the good news.

The series has an astounding 94% audience approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes as well as an 84% overall critics score. Not bad at all.

Today, after months of speculation, Netflix has confirmed that season 2 will air on May 8th!

This is fantastic news, considering every other TV show and movie production keeps getting pushed back further and further.

Finally - something NEW to look forward to!

The news has fans in a frenzy!

There's no arguing: this April has felt incredibly long and we aren't even halfway through.

That said, it's nice to have something to look forward to. I'd almost forgotten what that felt like.

The trailer doesn't offer up much other than a quick recap of last season's finale.

Keep in mind, it's just a teaser trailer.

But even with this small glimpse of what's to come, people can't wait to chime in with their theories and ideas!

Vague as it may be, the excitement from fans is already running high.

This classic meme from Jim Carrey's days as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective sums up perfectly how we're all feeling after watching the clip.

It seems everyone in the Twitterverse is talking about *Dead to Me*.

They most certainly did make the second season before the quarantine! Thank goodness for that.

This news is coming at an absolutely perfect time for fans and newcomers alike.

Some fans are already predicting that season 2 will be an award winner.

It's tough to disagree with that statement.

The range that Linda shows is truly impressive.

While others are just excited to finally have something new to watch.

It's been a difficult few weeks. It seems like every single TV show and movie is either getting pushed back or shelved entirely.

Thank goodness for Dead to Me!

Emotions are running high as we enter into the final countdown.

We can't wait to see it either!

The tears of pure joy are still flowing at this very moment .

We just need to hang on for one month longer! We've got this!

One more whole month? I know that feels like forever with how slowly time is passing these days but we will get through this together!

Maybe it's a good time to rewatch season 1.

So please, April, do us all a favor and hurry up! Bring on May and *Dead To Me*!
