'Dead to Me' season 2 is now in production

Dead to Me actress, Christina Applegate, took to Twitter last week to confirm that work has begun on the hit Netflix show's second season.

On Friday, Applegate, shared a photo from the first table read, with co-star, Linda Cardellini, sitting next to her.

The dramedy was renewed for a second season in June, following rave reviews just one month into its debut on the streaming service.

"Here we go again," Applegate captioned the image, which showed her and Cardellini holding hands, with the script in front of them.

Cardellini shared the same photo on her Instagram, writing "Season 2 table read!! Here we go! Can’t wait for you to see what Jen and Judy are up to."

Dead to Me - which was created by Liz Feldman - stars Applegate as Jen Harding and Cardellini as Judy Hale. Jen and Judy quickly become friends after meeting each other at a grief support group; Jen's husband was killed in a hit-and-run accident, while Judy says she suffered several miscarriages. However, due to a series of unexpected twists, Jen ends up finding out the real reason behind her and Judy's connection.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Applegate - who picked up an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series - disclosed how she had to be talked out of the "semi-retirement" she found herself in after starring in a slew of short-lived shows.

"It literally took them like dragging me out of my semi-retirement, because I was very happy with my kind of not showering life and doing what I want, and just raising my daughter," Applegate told the publication.

"So, what was it? It was a lot of things. It was really a unique premise and show, and I had known Liz Feldman and really loved her as a human being. I feel like if I'm going to be doing anything, if you're going to take me away from my kids for three months, it better be with an amazing group of people that are of quality and are kind, smart and interesting."
