It would not be wrong to say that After Life is the most underrated show on Netflix. Therefore, the fans want to see more of Tony and his friends. After two successful seasons, After Life season 3 is on the way!
While season 1 was all about Tony’s grief, season 2 explored other characters’ lives
Produced, directed, and written by Ricky Gervais, After Life revolves around Tony and residents of Tambury. On the surface, it’s a dark comedy-drama, but the story is much deeper and thought-provoking than that. While season one was how Tony dealt with the loss of his beloved wife, Lisa, season two explored other people’s lives. Although there are other aspects to it, the main aspect which is portrayed beautifully and in-depth is humanity. The show is all about how important human connections are and how subtly they can make a huge difference in someone’s life. Interestingly, it also shows us that every human is deserving of respect, love, and care. While every character has a unique part to play in Tony’s life, the most heart-warming is the relationship between him and Roxy. After season two received incredible reviews, it was inevitable that After Life season 3 will be in talks.
Recently, Ricky Gervais announced that After Life season 3 will be coming to Netflix soon
In a tweet, Ricky Gervais shared the happy news about After Life season 3. He wrote:
Because so many of you watched #AfterLife2 so quickly and made it Number 1 again, the nice people at Netflix have suggested that I get off my fat arse and do another season. This is all your fault.

Furthermore, he said:
“For the first time ever, I would do a series three, because the world’s so rich, I love the characters, I love all the actors in it, I love my character, I love the town, I love the themes… I love the dog! So I would do a third, but it’s got to be a real demanded-for encore. I’m not gonna just do it. It’s a really daunting task, a third series… so it’s really got to be wanted.”
