The ABC comedy series “Not Dead Yet” has officially become “Now Dead” as it has been revealed that the show hasn’t been renewed for a third season and is now the latest show to go on this season’s cancellation pile.

“Not Dead Yet” comes from creators David Windsor and Casey Johnson and follows Nell Serrano, self-described disaster, who writes obituaries at her local newspaper while navigating relationships in her personal and professional life. The twist – she can see the dead people she’s tasked with writing about, and they don’t hesitate to give her life advice.

The series is adapted from the book “Confessions of a 40-something F**k Up” by Alexandra Potter. It stars Gina Rodriguez, who is also an executive producer, with McG, Mary Viola, and Corey Marsh,  alongside creators David Windsor and Casey Johnson for 20th Television.

The season two finale only recently aired on ABC and the show was also released on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+ in the United States. Internationally, “Not Dead Yet” was released as a Star Original on Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ around the world. Unfortunately, the second season hasn’t been released on Disney+ in many countries, though hopefully Disney will still release these new episodes.

As with any cancellation, if you haven’t seen the show or are still working your way through the episodes, I’d suggest watching them as soon as possible, since cancelled shows are often liable to be removed without notice from Disney+ and Hulu as the company looks to reduce its costs.

Roger’s POV: It’s unfortunate that “Not Dead Yet” is the latest casualty of this season, and especially with comedy shows, they often take a while to bed in and find an audience, but obviously, after two seasons, it just didn’t click with enough people to warrant Disney continuing to spend money on.  It’s a shame as the second season hasn’t even been released in the UK on Disney+ yet, which I always feel undermines a show’s release and indicates that global viewership often doesn’t come into the decision-making.
