Staff Reporter | On 06, May 2020
Netflix has renewed After Life for Season 3.
Created by and starring Ricky Gervais, the comedy-drama follows Tony (Ricky Gervais), a writer for the local newspaper in a small town whose life is upended after his wife dies from cancer. In Season 2, whilst still struggling with immense grief for his wife, we see Tony try to become a better friend to those around him. Each grappling with their own problems and only to be intensified by the looming threat of the local newspaper being shut down.
The series co-stars Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey, Doctor Who), David Bradley (The Harry Potter series, Game of Thrones), Ashley Jensen (Extras), Tom Basden (Plebs, David Brent: Life On The Road), Tony Way (Edge of Tomorrow), David Earl (Cemetery Junction, Derek), Joe Wilkinson (Him and Her), Kerry Godliman (Derek), Mandeep Dhillon, Jo Hartley, Roisin Conaty and Diane Morgan (David Brent: Life On The Road).
Season 2 premiered on Netflix on 24th April, but within 2 weeks of that release, Netflix has already ordered a third season.
“Because so many of you watched #AfterLife2 so quickly and made it Number 1 again, the nice people at @Netflix have suggested that I get off my fat arse and do another season,” Gervais tweeted today. “This is all your fault.”
