‘After Life’: release date confirmed for season 2 of Ricky Gervais’ Netflix series

Written by on

Netflix have confirmed the release date for season 2 of Ricky Gervais’ series After Life.

The second run of the show was confirmed last April, only a month after it debuted on the streaming service.

The comedy drama sees Gervais starring as Tony Johnson, a man who is struggling to cope with widowed life following the death of his wife.

Now, a six-episode second season has been confirmed to land on Netflix on April 24. “I have never had a reaction like this before,” Gervais said in a statement last year, announcing the second season.

“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.”

A series of first-look images of the second season have also been shared to mark the release date announcement.

Speaking to NME about the show upon the release of the first season, Gervais said that After Life was “the most dramatic, the darkest [and] the most uncompromising” thing he’s ever worked on.

“It’s the comedy cast of the century even if you don’t like every single person in it. It’s amazing,” he said. “Some people will love it, some people will hate it, most people won’t know it exists, so I’m all for that.”
