The Anchorman actress announced the news on Twitter earlier this year, several months after her diagnosis.

“Hello friends,” she tweeted at the time. ‘A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS. It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition. It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road continues. Unless some kind of hole blocks it. ‘

She continued, “As one of my friends who has MS said, ‘We wake up and take the indicated action.’ And that’s what I do. So now I’m asking for privacy. While I’m going through this thing. Thanks xo. ‘

According to the National MS Society, multiple sclerosis is ‘an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information in the brain and between the brain and the body.’

Prior to her diagnosis of MS, Applegate had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and underwent a double mastectomy.

After the procedure, she revealed that she was cancer free, and Dead To Me even included that story in the show.

Season three is currently scheduled to hit the streaming giant sometime in 2022.
