Jen finds herself questioning her decision when she learns that Judy is not the person she thought she was. 

But Jen is too busy trying to find the hit and run driver who killed her husband. Judy seemingly understands what Jen is going through and that's why their friendship blossoms.

James Marsden, Ed Asner, and Brandon Scott are the supporting players on the series, while Jessica Elbaum, Christie Smith, Applegate, Adam McKay, and Will Ferrell serve as executive producers.

Dead to Me Season 1 currently has an approval rating of 87 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Netflix rarely releases any meaningful data about viewership stateside, but the U.K. arm of the company has revealed that Dead to Me has become a number one show, eking out a victory over Lucifer.

Dead to Me's renewal comes just months after the streamer canceled comedies like One Day at a Time and Santa Clarita Diet.
