When can we expect the third season of Dead to Me on Netflix?
Dead to me it was very consistent with the release dates so far, having been released in May for two consecutive years.
It would be easy to assume that the plan would be for the third season of Dead to me to arrive on Netflix in May 2021, but unfortunately the plans can be stopped.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been extremely disturbing for the world, especially for the film and TV industry. Assuming the projects return to production in the fall, then Dead to me must still be on track to return Spring 2021.
What to expect Dead to me third season
* Season 2 spoiler warning *
The consequences of the accident
Ben, supposedly on his way to identify the body of his dead brother Steve, crashed into the car where Jen and Judy were at the intersection. The struggling alcoholic drank whiskey and passed a stop sign.
It is unclear whether Ben realized it was Jen and Judy that he got it right, and whether or not the pair had a glimpse of Ben before he left.
This will weigh heavily on Ben, who will likely resort to another bottle, especially if he thought he killed whoever was in the car, not to mention that he is on his way to identify the body of his dead brother.
Jen and Judy are aware, but it is not clear what injuries the couple may have suffered. If the pair finds out that Ben was the only one driving, we can expect a strange confrontation between them.
Charlie finds Judy's letter
After searching Judy's room for some weed, Charlie finds the letter his mother, Jen, wrote to Judy.
It is not revealed whether Charlie actually read the letter, but if he did, he will learn of Judy's involvement in her father's death. Not to mention his mother's guilt about killing Steve.
With that evidence, it would make him innocent, as he is still suspected of Steve's disappearance.
Charlie has shown himself to be extremely rebellious, so he may end up blackmailing Judy and Jen, or he will make their lives hell because of his father's death.
Jen will be caught?
Jen was prepared to face the consequences of Steve's murder and confessed to Detective Perez. But after the two failed to find the body and had a heart to heart, Perez let her go free.
Nick, who is enjoying the case, received a lot of evidence from Judy to frame Steve and Steve's father. She hoped Nick could use the evidence to protect Jen, but when he realized that Jen had not yet formally confessed, she had to go back.
Charlie has the letter, Jen confessed to Perez, and Steve's body was found. There are many topics on the web that can take you all the way back to Jen's prison.
