The cliffhanger ending of the first season, where Dennis has to make a potentially life-altering decision, is about to get all the answers that the fans have been patiently awaiting to know more. 

After all, the series created by David Windsor and Casey Johnson, with just one season, has been able to make a name for itself within the vast catalog of ABC, and with the new season just around the corner, it promises to remain one of the best original series to be recently renewed. To say the least, it’s time to mark your calendars and get ready for another exhilarating journey with Penelope “Nell” Serrano.

Here is everything we know about Not Dead Yet Season 2.

Not Dead Yet Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere on ABC?

ABC’s Wednesday comedy night will return right back on track next year!

Ahead of Disney/ABC’s upfront presentation, ABC renewed Not Dead Yet for a second season, which is now scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at 8:30 p.m.

The season premiere will be preceded by The Conners at 8 p.m. and later by a special one-hour premiere of the Emmy-winning Abbott Elementary at 9 p.m. The primetime schedule will be concluded with the unscripted courtroom comedy series Judge Steve Harvey, which rounds out the Wednesday lineup at 10 p.m. on ABC and Hulu.

Take a look at the official release date as shared on X (formerly Twitter).

Not Dead Yet Season 2: What to expect from the new season?

The official synopsis has not been disclosed, but we are certain that the second season will be true to the premise, which is adapted from the book “Confessions of a 40-something F**k Up” by Alexandra Potter and reads as follows: 

“The series comes from the minds of creators David Windsor and Casey Johnson (“This Is Us,” “The Real O’Neals”) and starring Gina Rodriguez, “Not Dead Yet” follows Nell Serrano (Rodriguez), a broke and newly single self-described disaster, working to restart the life and career she left behind five years ago. When she lands the only job she can find – writing obituaries – Nell starts getting life advice from an unlikely source.” 

The series stars who are expected to return are Gina Rodriguez as Nell Serrano, Hannah Simone as Sam, Lauren Ash as Lexi, Rick Glassman as Edward, Joshua Banday as Dennis, and Angela Gibbs as Cricket. Casey Johnson and David Windsor are the creators and executive producers. Also executive producing are Gina Rodriguez, Dean Holland, Wonderland Sound and Vision’s McG, Mary Viola, and Corey Marsh.

The series is produced by 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios.

Not Dead Yet Season 2 Episodes: Where to stream?

The exact episode count of the second season can differ, as the network might go ahead with at least 13 episodes having an average runtime of 20 to 22 minutes, just like the first season, premiering on a weekly basis in order to be consistent. Details about the titles and synopsis have also not been disclosed to avoid early spoilers, which will be published in the near future once the filming commences, as no trailer has also been released. 

On the other hand, the new episodes of Not Dead Yet will be available exclusively on ABC, where the episodes are initially aired. After being aired, the episodes will be available to stream later on Hulu. The video quality and the number of screens you can use to stream the series simultaneously depend on the package you choose, and there is no additional cost for any of their services. You can also stream Not Dead Yet by renting or purchasing on Amazon, Google Play, IVA, and Vudu.
