Dead to Me: Season 1 (2019)


Critic Consensus: Dead to Me doesn't always deliver on the gallows humor that it promises, but the sterling duo of Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini elevates the series above its pulpier aspects -- offering a deeply moving relationship shaped by mutual grief.

Tv Season Info

Jen (Christina Applegate) is a sardonic widow determined to solve her husband?s recent hit-and-run murder. Judy (Linda Cardellini) is an optimistic free spirit who's recently suffered her own tragic loss. When the two women meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends despite their polar-opposite personalities. But as they bond over bottles of wine, Entenmann's cookies and a shared affinity for The Facts of Life, Judy desperately tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it. DEAD TO ME, created by Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls, One Big Happy), is an addictive dark comedy that dives into the painfully unfiltered, weirdly funny waters of grief, loss and forgiveness.

Critic Reviews for Dead to Me Season 1

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (17)

"Dead To Me" is a terrific character study of two women with an extremely complicated relationship, and also like that show, is one of the best and most unpredictable series on television this season.

Top Critic

Only the pacing and occasional glib comment give the sense that humor is present, for "Dead To Me" provides no indication it has a sense of humor at all.

Dead To Me really nails its depiction of female friendship.

May 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Its mystery could have been a little sharper and its story-line a little more taut, but thanks to the shining talent of its leading ladies, Dead to Me works quite well and is an entertaining new addition to its sub-genre.

May 17, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Quirky dark comedy about death grabs hold and won't let go.

May 14, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Dead to Me is both meditative and dramatically absorbing.

May 14, 2019 | Full Review…

As simple as it sounds, "Dead to Me" knows exactly what it is and exactly who its characters aren't.

May 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Is Dead to Me the perfect crime drama? No. But is it really entertaining and the perfect binge show? YES!

May 11, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Filled with "Hey, girl!" moments used to add a bit of lighter humor and break up the nail-biting suspense, Dead to Me is paced just slowly enough for you to become invested in the wrong characters and then root for their demise.

May 10, 2019 | Full Review…

The way the twists play out is, at least so far, well-acted and just as tense as the writers intend it to be.

Audience Reviews for Dead to Me: Season 1

This show was actually entertaining until they became political, taking stabs at abortion, guns, Republicans in general and Christianity. It's sad because all of that is so irrelevant to the plot and so unnecessary. Don't see how I can continue to watch/ support it. Stop👏🏻 Shoving👏🏻Politics👏🏻Down👏🏻Our👏🏻Throats👏🏻

Dead to Me offers a refreshing take on dark humour elevated by an electric performance by Christina Applegate.

The only straight white male on the show, is of course, the villain! So woke! (oof)

Just when you think it's gonna zig, it zags

There's some good writing in this show.
