After Life Season 2 Given the Green Light by Netflix

-

Netflix has given the green light to After Life Season 2, which will consist of six episodes. The Ricky Gervais (The OfficeExtras) series launched globally on March 8. After Life Season 2 will launch in 2020.

“I have never had a reaction like this before. It’s been insane. And heartwarming,” Gervais said. “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.”


Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer, added: “After Life has moved audiences from laughter to tears around the world and we are thrilled to announce that Ricky Gervais will be back with a second season on Netflix. We are so proud to play host to Ricky’s brilliant stand up comedy, specials, original films, and series and join in the joy of the fans with his latest hit.”

After Life is a Netflix original series from Derek Productions. The series is created, written and directed by Ricky Gervais.  Charlie Hanson is the producer and Ricky Gervais and Duncan Hayes are executive producers.

After Life centers around Tony (Ricky Gervais), who seemingly had a perfect life. But after his wife Lisa dies, Tony changes. After contemplating taking his own life, he decides instead to live long enough to punish the world by saying and doing whatever he likes from now on. He thinks it’s like a Super Power — not caring about himself or anyone else — but it turns out to be tricky when everyone is trying to save the nice guy they used to know.


Starring alongside Gervais is Kerry Godliman (Derek) as Tony’s wife Lisa, Tom Basden (Plebs, David Brent: Life On The Road) as Tony’s brother-in-law Matt, Tony Way (Edge of Tomorrow) as Tony’s best-friend Lenny, David Bradley (the Harry Potter series, Game of Thrones) as Tony’s dad, and Ashley Jensen (Extras) as a Nurse to Tony’s dad.

Also starring in After Life are Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey, Doctor Who), David Earl (Cemetery Junction, Derek), Joe Wilkinson (Him and Her), Kerry Godliman (Derek), Mandeep Dhillon, Jo Hartley, Roisin Conaty, Tim Plester and Diane Morgan (David Brent: Life On The Road).
