After the ghostly comedy won over audiences during its season 1 run, Not Dead Yet season 2 again sees Nell Serrano (Gina Rodriguez) using her newly acquired ability to see and talk to ghosts to write the very best obituaries.

Her ability to write is one area in her life that is going well. She's not having the best fortune when it comes to romance and she still technically works for a boss that doesn't care for her that much. So what happens in the new episodes?

Here's everything we know about Not Dead Yet season 2.

Not Dead Yet season 2 plot

Details about the new season have not yet been revealed. However, here is a synopsis of the overall series:

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."
