Let’s Get Cynical: Netflix Announces Release Date For Season 2 of Ricky Gervais Comedy After Life

Share this post

Netflix’s cynical-but-sentimental dramedy After Life is getting a second season this April, so hopefully you’re prepared for a whole lot more Ricky Gervais on your TV screens.”I have never had a reaction like this before,” Gervais said in a statement following the announcement that Netflix had renewed the show. “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.”The six-part series debuted on the streaming platform in March 2019, following Tony , a nice man whose perfect life is shattered when his wife, Lisa , dies. Struggling with grief, Tony decides that instead of doing something drastic like taking his own life, he’s going to radically change the way he goes about his days in his British village. Essentially, he decides to be a remorseless d*ck. Fortunately for Tony, his friends and family won’t give up on him as easily as he’s given up on himself, resulting in a comedy that has plenty of heart to balance out the cynicism. POPSUGAR
