After Life Season 3 Release Date, Trailer And Cast

Filming for After Life season three is now officially in post-production and fans are keeping their fingers crossed that they won't be waiting much longer.

This is the first time Ricky Gervais has ever decided to make a third instalment of one of his TV projects and he said he wasn't going to "just do it for the sake of it." However, the demand was clearly there, with season two proving to be even more popular than the first season and racking up 80 million views on Netflix. And so, season three was announced only a couple of weeks after season two premiered.

Season three, which will be the last, will see the return of the show's creator, who stars as the grieving widow, Tony Johnson.

Tony is a newspaper writer who struggles to cope after the death of his wife. The grieving middle-aged man adopts a gruff new persona in an effort to push away those trying to help.


Filming for the third and final instalment of After Life began in April 2021 and wrapped in June.

After Life season 3 release date

A release date hasn't been confirmed for the third season of After Life yet.

With a six-month gap between finishing filming and the release of After Life season two, it's possible that we could see After Life season three drop on Netflix by December 2021 if it follows the same timeline.

As filming has not long wrapped, it's too early for there to be a trailer yet. We'll let you know as soon as one arrives.

Now first things first, yes Anti the dog is back! And so are these other fan favourites:

  • Penelope Wilton (Anne)
  • Ashley Jensen (Emma)
  • Tom Basden (Matt)
  • Tony Way (Lenny)
  • David Earl (Brian)
  • Joe Wilkinson ("Postman" Pat)
  • Mandeep Dhillon (Sandy)
  • Jo Hartley (June)
  • Roisin Conaty (Roxy)
  • Diane Morgan (Kath)
  • Ethan Lawrence (James)

In July 2020, Gervais said he wasn't sure if he and Emma's relationship would end happily ever after, explaining how his character is "sort of addicted to grief... because he knows where he is with it, because hope lets him down too much."

In the meantime, Dhillon, who plays Sandy, hopes to see her character get some wins in the third season after struggling with some family issues of her own in season two.
