Ricky Gervais' After Life Season 2: Netflix Release Date And What We Know So Far

Ricky Gervais' After Life Season 2: Netflix Release Date And What We Know So Far

After a couple of critical wobbles after the success of The Office and Extras, Ricky Gervais struck gold with After Life.

The Netflix was a ratings winner and a hit with both audiences and critics - thanks to combination of Ricky Gervais' dark humour and genuinely considered and heartfelt takes on life, death, and grief.

The show was wrapped up in just six half-hour episodes and fans were left desperately waiting for season 2 - even though nothing had been confirmed. Fortunately, we've got some good news for you. After Life season 2 has been confirmed by Gervais himself and is set to be bigger and better than ever.

Ricky never hid his desire to follow up his hit and told Digital Spy: "I really would like to do a second series, because I fell in love with the characters.

"I've got an idea of where it can go. And the second series is always better, usually because you know the actors [when you're writing for them]."

It wasn't long until Netflix got in on the action by tweeting a quote from Ricky. It read: "I have never had a reaction like this before. It's been insane. And heartwarming.

"But now I have to make sure the second season is even better so I'll probably have to work much harder than usual. Annoying really."


What's After Life about?

If you haven't watched season 1, then what are you waiting for? After Life, the show follows Tony, who drastically adapts his lifestyle following the sudden death of his wife Lisa (Kerry Godliman). He decides that he's no longer got a reason to live, apart from his dog, so speaks his mind regardless of the consequences.

When is After Life season 2 coming out?

Ricky recently posted pictures of the new script and also from the first read through, so although we don't have a specific release date, we can assume that it'll be out sometime in 2020.

Who's the cast?

Obviously Ricky Gervais himself will be back as the main character. We're looking forward to seeing most of the original cast including Kerry Godliman as Tony's late wife Lisa, Ashley Jensen will return as the nurse of Tony's father and Roisin Conaty is set to play local prostitute and house cleaner, Daphne.

Tim Plester's character Julian is not expected to return - unless, like Lisa, he appears in flashbacks.
