The trailer for After Life season two has dropped and it looks every bit as incredible as the first:
It seems things are certainly on the up for Tony (Ricky Gervais) as he takes on the job of helping the people who helped him.
With a new mantra 'hope is everything' we see the return of Sandy the new journalist at the Tambury Gazette (played by Mandeep Dhillon) along with other colleagues including brother-in-law Matt (Tom Basden) and Lenny the photographer (Tony Way).
There's also more scenes at the graveyard with Anne (Penelope Wilton), Daphne the sex worker (Roisin Conaty), postman Pat (Joe Wilkinson) and, most importantly, the dog.
The new series - which consists of six episodes - will follow Tony, who is continuing to grieve for his late wife Lisa (played by Kerry Godliman) while trying to form better relationships with the people close to him.
The trailer opens with the pair dancing on an old recording before cutting to a conversation between Tony and Sandy, where he says: "People think all those things I miss doing with Lisa, I could just do them anyway. They're missing the point - I miss doing nothing with Lisa."
With the newspaper on the brink of closure, it seems Tony is trying to lift the spirits and be a bit more 'zen' albeit he still manages to call someone a 'snot-curdling c***'... old habits die hard, eh?
Fans are clearly excited for the second instalment with one taking to social media saying: "We need something to cheer us up!"
Another added: "One of my favourite shows is about to make its comeback from the mind of the brilliant @rickygervais. Poignant, emotional and sharp on both a dramatic and comedic level barely describes how good this show is."
While a third summed it up perfectly: "Only decent thing to happen this year is After Life S2".
literally the only thing keeping me going rn is the fact that season 2 of afterlife is out this month

The first season of After Life premiered on Netflix back in March 2019 and was an instant hit with viewers, who were soon drawn to Gervais' darkly comedic, poignant writing.
As the first instalment drew in praise across the board for combining Gervais' trademark humour and bad taste jokes with some genuinely considered and heartfelt takes on life, death and grief, Netflix then announced it had renewed the show for a second series.
After Life season two will be available to watch on Netflix from 24 April 2020.
