*Season 2 Spoilers Ahead*

What’s the plot for Dead to Me Season 3?

In the final episode of Season 2 of Dead to Me, the show ends with Jen and Judy getting hit by a car driven by Ben, the twin brother of Jen’s victim, Steve. Season 2 also revolves around Jen’s confession to Detective Perez. But there’s now a new threat in the form of Ben, who wants vengeance over his brother. His relationships with Jen and Judy are expected to take on a new dimension. Jen and Judy are now more financially set, but that suddenly holds much less significance now that Jen is injured and more people know the truth about them. Since Ben also knows about his mother now, we can expect the relationship between Ben and Jen to get more complicated in Dead to Me Season 3.
