After Life season three is coming back

February 22, 2021

Ricky Gervais has promised that the third season of popular Netflix series, After Life, will include one of the funniest scenes yet.

The comedian says work is still underway on the popular comedy series and that the script isn’t fully written.

However, he explained how audiences will no doubt be laughing their socks off for one particular bit, which he believes will go down a storm.

Ricky quoted on Twitter, “I’ve just written a 1 minute scene for #AfterLife3 where Brian tells the receptionist a joke that I know will be impossible to get through. 20 minutes of outtakes guaranteed. Can’t wait.”

Considering how overwhelmingly great the first two seasons were, there is no doubt the comedian will deliver the goods for the third and final series, after confirming there won’t be a fourth series.

Speaking to The Sun, Gervais said, “I’ve already made my mind up – there just won’t be a fourth.”

“You never say never but you put those things out there to make you remember because it’s tempting, it’s very tempting.”

He likened his job to an orchestra conductor as his back is turned to the audience, Gervais added, “The audience think they want another one but they don’t know, they’re not sure, so you’ve got to be careful.”

The series sees Ricky playing the role of Tony, a man who is desperately struggling to come to terms with the point of existence, following the death of his wife, whilst also attempting to improve his relationships with other people in his life.

While Gervais ruled out a fourth instalment, he previously admitted that he felt surprised by the public’s ongoing love for the show.

He said, “I’ve never had a reaction like this, so there is that [sense of] ‘Oh, I could only ruin it’, you know what I mean? So you’ve got to try and make it better.”

“Which is good, it’s a good state of mind to be in, it’s a good pressure. I’ve got to make this better than before – that’s a lovely pressure to have as a writer.”

“That’s not a reason not to do a second series because the first one went down so well… Most people want it the other way – they want too many series because they think it’s their favourite show.”

“I get that, as a viewer I get it, but as an artist you have got to get out a bit early. But as I say, this is the first one I’ve – I think I’m gonna do a third because the world we’ve created is too good and rich.”

Gervais has hinted regularly that the script is coming along great, so we’ll just have to sit back and wait until the new season is upon us, to see exactly what he has in store.

    One of the best series, it has you laughing your socks off one minute and sobbing the next. The casting is brilliant, each and every one of them very funny. Please don’t stop writing Ricky

    Can’t wait. Love the dark perceptions and honesty. A return to some humanity in this crazy capitalist and exploitative world. Well done Gervais!

    “After Life” is one of the best series I’ve ever watched. One minute you’re aching with laughter and the next you’re in tears with sadness. Brilliantly written by Ricky Gervais, I can’t wait for the third series!

    Having been widowed aged 57 (62 now) it was so in touch with the loss and mental state of the one left behind . I’m so looking forward to watching my life unfold through next series.
