Netflix has renewed one of its most popular new shows.

Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini will return for black comedy series Dead to Me, which follows two women who become unlikely friends at a support group.

Upon its release, Dead to Me scored mostly positive reviews from critics, with audiences making their love known for the show on Twitter.

It appears the buzz has helped its cause – the streaming service announced the news at its For Your Consideration Emmy panel on Monday night.

Liz Feldman will return as showrunner for season two. Going by the events of season one, it’s unknown whether Westworld's James Marsden will come back.

The show is executive produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay who have the same role on hit HBO series Succession.

Dead to Me is expected to return in 2020.
