Brad Garrett Joins ‘Not Dead Yet’ Season 2

Emmy winner Brad Garrett has joined the second season of “Not Dead Yet” as a new series regular opposite Gina Rodriguez.

Season 2 will premiere on Wednesday, February 7, 2024 at 8:30/7:30c on ABC and stream the next day on Hulu in the United States.  The second season will also be coming to Disney+ in many countries including the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia however a release date has not been announced yet.

The series follows Nell Serrano, 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 some unlikely sources, the dead people whose lives she’s writing about. Joining previously announced Martin Mull (“Clue”) as Nell’s ghostly visitors is a star-studded roster, including Ed Begley Jr. (“Amsterdam”), Mo Collins (“Fear the Walking Dead”), Deborah S. Craig (“Meet Cute”), Telma Hopkins (“Family Matters”), Don Lake (“Space Force”), Rhea Perlman (“Cheers”), Paula Pell (“Saturday Night Live”), Tony Plana (“Ugly Betty”), Brittany Snow (“X”) and Julia Sweeney (“Saturday Night Live”).

According to Deadline, Garrett will play 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.

“Not Dead Yet” stars Gina Rodriguez as Nell Serrano, Hannah Simone as Sam, Lauren Ash as Lexi, Rick Glassman as Edward, Josh Banday as Dennis and Angela Gibbs as Cricket.

Casey Johnson and David Windsor executive produce with Rodriguez, Dean Holland, Wonderland Sound and Vision’s McG, Mary Viola and Corey Marsh. The series is produced by 20th Television, part of Disney TV Studios.

Garrett is best known for starring in hit comedies Single Parents and Everybody Loves Raymond.

Season 1 of “Not Dead Yet” is available to stream on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ in many countries including the United Kingdom and Australia.
