How many episodes in Dead to Me season 2?

There has been no indication of how many episodes will feature in the new series, however, the first season was made up of 10 episodes.

With this in mind, the second series is expected to include the same number, and they should all be available to watch on Netflix at the same time.

Each episode is half an hour long, so fans will be able to watch the new series within a day if they fancy binge-watching it.

According to Deadline, the new episodes will be set during the aftermath of the “bloody backyard reveal” at the end of the first series.

They said: “With a surprising new visitor in town and Detective Perez (Diana Maria Riva) hot on their heels, Jen and Judy take drastic measures to protect their loved ones and each other — no matter the cost.”

Netflix has already released an official trailer for the second series, which stars Applegate and Cardellini in their lead roles.

The trailer shows a flashback to the poolside shooting and the ladies are heard saying: “No one can ever know what happened”.

The two main characters are at a diner and they both want everything to go back to normal, but they admit: “We are not in Snow White, we are in Scarface.”

Fans commented on the trailer on Twitter after it was shared by the official Dead To Me Twitter account, with the words: “Guess they can’t stay away from each other, huh? Dead to Me returns May 8.”

One fan said: “I watched the first season again just a few days ago, I am ready.”

The first season ended on a huge cliffhanger with Jen and Judy looking over the body of Judy’s former fiance Steve (James Marsden).

Creator Feldman left fans feeling confused after saying the ending “is not exactly what you think”, meaning there is a possibility Jen did not kill him.

Plenty more twists and turns will be expected from the new series, and Feldman told the Hollywood Reporter the original plan was not to kill Steve.

She said: “When he pitched that, everybody in the room had this moment where we felt like, ‘Oh s***, yeah, that’s going to need to happen,’.

“It just made so much sense for what the overarching themes of the season were and it folded so beautifully into that and so darkly into the framework that we were setting up that it just felt like it’s a big swing, let’s take it.”
