But the actor and comedian confirmed that the soon-to-be-released third season will be the last as he reprises his role as local journalist Tony for the final time.

After Life has been incredibly well received by critics and it was revealed that the show has been watched almost 100 million times by Netflix subscribers.

Focusing on a number of emotionally intense themes such as loss, grief and suicide, Gervais has blended his distinct and hilarious comedy with amusing and iconic characters, which will almost certainly be the case for the upcoming series.
