It’s the third and closing season of Liz Feldman’s deliciously darkish comedy, and the stakes are excessive for dysfunctional duo Jen (Christina Applegate) and Judy (Linda Cardellini). We’ve watched these polar-opposite personalities navigate grief, anger and loss collectively whereas littering their path to redemption with a litany of secrets and techniques, lies and lifeless our bodies. Now, it’s time to see in the event that they make it out of the mess alive, with out killing one another and freed from prolonged jail sentences. Sardonic, hard-nosed Jen and flighty, bleeding coronary heart Judy are returning after greater than two years, so followers may have a binge-watch refresher on their excessive jinks. Issues to stay up for: James Marsden, who portrayed Judy’s late fiancé, Steve, a cut-throat lawyer with ties to the Greek mafia, persevering with to play Steve’s equivalent twin brother, Ben. The light chiropractor is Jen’s new love curiosity (poor fellow). “Dead to Me” is one among Netflix‘s most popular series, and it’s no surprise why: It’s an exquisite tangle of unlikely friendship, situational deception and sorta, kinda unintended homicide, wrapped in layers of whip-smart humor. —Lorraine Ali
