A lot of people who tuned in to Dead To Me’s final season might have been surprised to find out that the show was ending, and that there wouldn’t be any more episodes after this one. But if you were watching closely and paying attention to Christina Applegate’s statements about the future of the show and her character Amanda, then you probably saw this coming from a mile away.
1) She had a clear vision for the show
Christina Applegate created, wrote and starred in a show called Dead to me which aired on Netflix. The actress has been vocal about her reasons for ending the show, and in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, she said: I want to go out on my own terms. Christina also had a clear vision for the show. She said that she wanted it to be funny, dark and twisted because those are some of her favorite shows. The last season of the series will be six episodes that can be watched all at once or individually.
2) She was ready to move on
Dead To Me, Christina Applegate’s brand new Netflix show just came to an end. The series which has been hailed by critics as one of the best shows on Netflix, was announced as a 10-episode season for its final season. But the series finale left many fans wondering why it ended so quickly when there were still eight episodes left to air and what drove Christina to be ready to call it quits? We don’t know for sure but we have some ideas that might shed some light on her decision. After watching her latest Netflix original, we came up with reasons why she filmed the show’s final season on her terms.
3) She wanted to be able to spend more time with her family
Dead to Me is ending after its second season finale, which airs tomorrow on Netflix. Christina Applegate stars in the show as Jen Harding, a woman who finds out her husband cheated on her and becomes a victim of domestic violence. They had just moved to a new town with their kids when it all happened, so she wants to move back to LA for them because it will be easier for them emotionally. I really wanted to make sure I could do that for my kids, she said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
She said that if they were going to have another season, then they would have needed to start filming again soon, which would have been hard since they already started shooting the final season this summer.
4) She wanted to give the fans what they wanted
Dead to Me, the new Netflix series created by Liz Feldman and starring Christina Applegate, is coming to an end with its final season. Fans of the show have been wondering why Christina has been absent on social media lately as well as where she will be filming it. Christina has now opened up about her decision to end the series that she loved so much and how she wanted to give her fans what they wanted.
We knew we had a finite amount of time, so I said let’s do four seasons and call it a day, says Christina in an interview with Deadline. She went on to add that this was what the producers had planned from the beginning so they were all on board when she made her proposal.
5) She didn’t want the show to become stale
Dead to Me, the dark comedy series that Christina Applegate stars in and produces, is set to film its final season on her terms. I feel like it would be a disservice to the show not to go out on my own terms, she told Deadline. We’re wrapping up season two right now and I think we have four more episodes before we wrap up for good. The show follows an unlikely friendship between Jen (Christina), who has had a heart transplant, and Judy (Linda Cardellini), whose daughter had been killed by someone driving under the influence of alcohol.
6) She wanted to take some time off
Christina Applegate took a break from acting after her breast cancer diagnosis to focus on her health. But with the recent success of the Netflix series, she realized it was time to come back. Dead To Me just finished its final season, but don’t be sad because it filmed on Christina Applegate’s terms. She wanted to take some time off but didn’t want to leave us without a new show. Now she can continue focusing on her health while continuing with work that makes her happy. Christina Applegate is truly dead to me in the best way possible.
7) She wanted to end the show on a high note
Dead to Me is a show about a woman who was murdered and her best friend who is trying to find out who killed her. Christina Applegate wanted the show to end on a high note so she made it happen. She didn’t want this season to be the final season, but she wanted it to be the best possible ending for viewers. Christina also wanted the lead-up to the finale of Dead To Me to feel like an event and not just another episode that only served as fan service. I think Christina did a good job with her decision, Dead To Me is one of my favorite shows right now and I’m really excited for what’s coming next!
