Netflix Renews 'After Life' for Season 2

Netflix has today renewed its original comedy series After Life for a second season. The new season will once again produce six episodes and debut in 2020.

The comedy stars Ricky Gervais, Tom Basden, Tony Way, Diane Morgan, Mandeep Dhillon, Ashley Jensen, David Bradley, Kerry Godliman, Paul Kaye, Tim Plester, Joe Wilkinson, Tommy Finnegan, Thomas Bastable, Penelope Wilton, David Earl, Jo Hartley and Roisin Conaty.

Gervais created the comedy. He executive produces with Duncan Hayes and Charlie Hanson. Derek Productions produces in association with Netflix.

"I have never had a reaction like this before," said Gervais. "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."

"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," said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, 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."
