Ricky Gervais Shares Photo Of Dog Cast For After Life 2

Ricky Gervais Shares Photo Of Dog Cast For After Life 2

After he gave us the news that he'd finished the script for After Life 2 last week, Ricky Gervais has gone and given us another look into what the next series of the hit show involves - prepare yourself for cute AF overload.

Having done some casting for the show, he's revealed all the doggos that will star in the second series, and I think they may well be the cutest crew I've ever seen.

In the post, which he put out on Facebook, he also confirms it's four weeks until they start filming the next series.

He recently let on that he was starting to write the show.

In a post on Instagram, the British comedian wrote: "I start pre-production on #AfterLife2 next week and film it in September and October.

"Then I'm bringing [his latest stand-up show] #SuperNature to Europe! Madrid, Paris, Berlin, and Prague to start with.

"Stay Tuned for details."

If you're not familiar with After Life, the show follows Tony - played by Gervais - who drastically adapts his lifestyle following the sudden death of his wife Lisa (Kerry Godliman).

The first series was critically acclaimed and saw Gervais celebrated for combining his trademark dark humour and bad taste jokes with some genuinely considered and heartfelt takes on life, death, and grief.

After the runaway success of the first outing, it was confirmed pretty quickly that Netflix would allow Gervais to make up another season.

Back in March, Gervais confirmed that he'd already started offering up some ideas for what a second season would look like.

He said: "I always do that just in case I die!

"Now I've thought about it, and I really would like to do a second series because I fell in love with the characters and I've got an idea of where it can go.

"The second series is always better. Usually because you know the actors.

"There's a little clue at the end of series one when he says, 'I'm just going to use my superpower for good'. He can still be an a**hole, and just enjoy it more."

Speaking about the show's sometimes controversial and difficult subject matter, Gervais has also said: "I don't think suicide is the topic. I think the topic is grief, and grief makes you think lots of things. I don't think suicide is any more the topic than him getting drunk every night.

"I treat it respectfully. Everyone assumes comedy about something is disrespectful. So I've heard roundtables on radio shows discussing why Ricky Gervais shouldn't be making jokes about these subjects, and I'm like, 'Well you're talking about it, I'm just doing it in a funny way'."

After Life 2 is expected to be out on Netflix in early 2020.
