Everyone Is Hooked On Netflix's 'Dead To Me'

All of us are always looking for something new to binge, and luckily as always, Netflix has you covered.

New "trauma-dy" Dead To Me dropped on Friday, 3rd May, and many of us have already watched it in full.


The show, starring Linda Cardellini and Christina Applegate, is about two women suffering with grief. It has been described as an "addictive dark comedy that dives into the painfully unfiltered, weirdly funny waters of grief, loss and forgiveness".

Christina Applegate plays Jen, a widow whose husband is killed in a hit-and-run.

She becomes obsessed with solving the mystery and meets Judy (Linda Cardellini) at a support group, becoming unlikely friends.

They bond, but Judy knows a secret that could destroy Jen's life.

The show is surprisingly hilarious despite dealing with the nastier parts of grief.

As Christina, who is also a producer on the show says: "Jen, my character, is grieving in worst way possible, but that's her way. And I think that we should all be allowed to do that when we need to. Grief doesn't have a timeline. And grief is messy."

The show has been a huge hit with fans who've shared their thoughts on Twitter after a weekend binge-watch.

It's also meant a lot to its stars, with Applegate telling Variety: "It tapped into some stuff that I had to face. It was cathartic."

She added that she had to take therapy after she starred in the show. "To like finally talk about the stuff that hurt you in your life - and heal from that? I think it's really beautiful thing," shared the actor.

The entire 10 episodes of the first season are now on Netflix now, and it's fair to say Twitter users are really loving it.

If everyone's reactions are anything to go by, it'll be worth binge-watching ASAP so you can chat about it with your friends spoiler-free.
