The huge cliffhanger that closed the first season of Netflix black comedy Dead To Me left us all hankering for the next instalment ASAP. (Having entire series available to watch in one fell swoop is great and all, but oh boy has it made us all impatient.)

While the next season isn't quite ready for us to binge on just yet, actor Linda Cardellini has revealed filming has officially wrapped, a development that we can definitely get on board with.

Cardellini shared a selfie with co-star Christina Applegate and show creator Liz Feldman, writing on Instagram: "Last day of shooting @deadtome #season2 today. THANK YOU to the brilliant and incredible #christinaapplegate & @thelizfeldman for everything every day. I love you both."

She added: "PS - we are very excited for everyone to see what we have been doing..."

Us too, Linda, us too.

The first series followed 'hotheaded widow' Jen (Applegate) as she dealt with the grief of losing her husband in a hit-and-run incident, in turn befriending 'eccentric optimist' Judy (Cardellini) after meeting her at a bereavement support group.

The black comedy proved a big hit with viewers and was praised for the unique way to portrayed the subject of grief, along with its clever twists and turns - not least the cliffhanger that saw Steve (James Marsden), Judy's ex, floating in Jen's pool.

While plot details for season two are scarce at this stage, we do know Jen and Judy will be back to work through their resilient, albeit slightly troubled, friendship.

Also reprising their roles are Max Jenkins as Jen's real estate partner Christopher, Luke Roessler as Jen's younger son Henry, Sam McCarthy as Jen's eldest son, Brandon Scott as police officer Nick and Ed Asner as Abe.

James Marsden was also spotted filming scenes with Applegate in November, meaning Steve Wood could still be alive, or just loitering around in flashbacks.

Creator Liz Feldman has also promised the second season will get pretty dark.


She told The Hollywood Reporter: "Just like the rest of the show, it's not exactly what you think it's going to be.

"There's an evening of the score and there's a rebalancing that will take place and almost, in some ways, a role reversal.

"This show will always be a show that explores the dark sides and the light sides of grief, loss, forgiveness and friendship. So, suffice to say, there will be more darkness."

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, she also said: "What I wanted to do was create a situation where they're forced together, and they need each other now in some ways more than they did at the beginning of season 1."
