'Dead to Me'

The acclaimed dark comedy will be back with new episodes.

Fans of Netflix's deliciously dark comedy, Dead to Me, can take heart because a second season is on the way.

After ending the captivating and stress-inducing first season on a massive cliffhanger, devoted viewers were left wondering if they'd get any bit of closure to the story of a demented female friendship bonded by grief and strengthened by obsession, fueled by a search for answers and a lot of wine.

Creator Liz  Feldman, who previously created One Big Happy and 2 Broke Girls, is set to serve as showrunner and executive producer for the second season.

Additionally, Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini have signed on to return as the show's central dynamic duo, Jen and Judy.

The first season of the series follows Jen (Applegate), struggling to cope with the unexpected hit-and-run death of her husband, who meets and befriends Judy (Cardellini) at an emotional support group meeting. The pair soon become inseparable, bordering on co-dependent.

However, as their relationship progresses, the mystery behind Judy's true motives and an ever-growing web of deceit and half-truths plunges everyone involved into some truly dark places.
