Filming on the second season of “Not Dead Yet” is currently underway, and the show is scheduled to return in February.

From 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 is adapted from the book “Confessions of a 40-something F**k Up” by Alexandra Potter. “Not Dead Yet” stars 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.

Deadline has revealed that Brad Garrett has joined the cast as a series regular on the upcoming second season, where he will play the role of Duncan Rhodes, the owner/publisher of the SoCal Independent newspaper, among many other successful businesses. He is also the father of Nell’s boss Lexi (Lauren Ash). Duncan is a total master of the universe. He has exuberant confidence and charisma and, at the same time, is completely out of touch with how normal people live – but he doesn’t know that. He thinks everyone is probably considering space travel for their next vacation. No one is comfortable telling him he’s out of touch, or that he’s not a great father, until he meets Nell.

Brad Garrett is known for his roles in “Everyone Loves Raymond”, “Single Parents”,  and “Till Death Do”, along with the Pixar film, “Ratatouille”.

Casey Johnson and David Windsor are the creators and executive producers.  Also executive producing is Gina Rodriguez, Dean Holland Wonderland Sound and Vision’s McG, Mary Viola and Corey Marsh.
