While fans will have to say goodbye to Jen Harding (Applegate) and Judy Hale (Cardellini), this year, the show's creator Liz Feldman had another show greenlit by Netflix called No Good Deed.

According to a statement from the Netflix the new show will be another "dark comedy that follows three very different families vying to buy the very same 1920s Spanish style villa that they think will solve all their problems. But as the sellers have already discovered, sometimes the home of your dreams can be a total nightmare."

"No good Liz Feldman project can go unproduced," said Tracey Pakosta, Head of Comedy at Netflix. "She has an unmatched eye for dark comedy. And as we enter the final season of the brilliant Dead to Me, we are thrilled to continue our partnership with No Good Deed."

Applegate, 50, earned an Emmy nomination for her portrayal of the show's grieving widowin season 1.

"I didn't even think that I was remotely close to having this day so it's shocking. I mean, look at who I am standing there with!" she told PEOPLE after learning of the nod.

"I was like, 'There is no way.' Yes, people have been really, really complimentary of the show and that's felt really nice because it doesn't always happen like that, but still I was like, 'How'd I squeeze in there?'"
