The second season of Netflix After life ends in an ambiguous tone, with Tony (Ricky Gervais) still struggling to overcome his sadness even when he is offered a glimmer of new hope.
Is that the end of the story? Or else came from Tony and the eccentric Tambury residents? Here’s all you need to know about the potential third excursion for the recognized Gervais series. ** CONTAINING SPOILERS FOR ALL SIX-SEASON EPISODES TWO **
Will there be After Life season 3 on Netflix?
There hasn’t been an official word about the third season – although that’s not surprising, with Netflix usually waiting around a month before making a decision about the future of one of the original series.
Cindy Holland – VP of Content Acquisition – has said that while Netflix “really” checked the overnight performance of the show, he and his colleagues waited 28 days to decide whether a show had reached its target.
In fact, the second season was announced on April 3, 2019, a little less than a month after After Life was originally launched (on March 8, 2019). So, the earliest we expect is the announcement of the third season end of May 2020.
The good news is, despite completing previous projects such as The Office, Extras and Derek after two series and specials (or a pair of specials), Ricky Gervais is open to ideas about the third season of After Life – as long as people demand it.
Gervais told me RadioTimes.com and other press: “For the first time, I will do series three, because the world is so rich, I like the character, I like all the actors in it, I like my character, I like the city, I like the theme … I love the dog!
“So I will do the third, but that must be a real request for an encore. I will not do it just like that.”
He continued: “I would not do it for that sake. I will not do it just to get paid, or because of them [Netflix] want three more hours on their platform. Surely people really want more.
“This is a very daunting task, the third series … so it is really desirable.”
After Life Season 3 release date: When will it come out?
The second season landed on Netflix about 13 months after the premiere, so if the streaming service orders another sharp season, it is appropriate for After Life to launch the third episode of Netflix by spring of 2021.
The corona virus pandemic and the resulting social distance actions have held back much of film and TV production – which says, After the Life season two shoots does not begin until September 2019 and if the third season is eyeing the same start date in 2020, there is a possibility that the worst of the crisis is already behind us.
After Life season 3 is thrown: Who returns?
You can expect all of your possessions After Life is thrown favorites to return for every third season, including …
- Ricky Gervais (Tony)

Supporting characters that can be re-included Tracy Ann Oberman as Rebecca without further ado, Paul Kaye as a crazy psychiatrist, and Colin Hoult as the superstar Ken showbiz wannabe.
The second season was also introduced Peter Egan as Paul, owner of Tambury Gazette and potential love interest for Anne, another character who has the potential to return in future episodes.
Gervais also said that, even over time, Tony’s late wife, Lisa (Kerry Godliman) will remain an “integral” part of the series.
“That is very rich: the missing wife, and all the guilt, and going forward, and she vs. someone else … apparently, who can compare with this perfect wife?” she says. “He will never make mistakes … so [it’s] all of it. “
It is not clear whether David Bradley will be part of the third season of After Life after his character, Tony’s father, Ray, died in the second season – although there is certainly potential for him to reappear in home video footage, a la Lisa.
And, of course, we hope for more Anti as Tony’s dog, Brandy!
