NEWS: After Life will return for Season 3.

Ricky Gervais followed with a Tweet of its own saying:
“Because many of you have watched # AfterLife2 so quickly and became number 1, the nice people of Netflix suggested I get rid of my big ass and do another season.
This is all your fault. “
From the lag, the chances of After life renewing itself to some extent was high, as we explained below.
Was the series a success? We never received any official numbers from Netflix, but Gervais said Season 2 was watched more than Season 1 (within a time frame after release).
Additionally, Ricky Gervais is currently halfway through his multi-year First Look contract with Netflix. The deal was retaliated in July 2019. The deal saw the release of After life as well as Humanity and there are at least 2 new projects to come After life season 3 too.
When the deal was originally announced, Ricky joked about the third season or, as he opted for some of his previous shows, a one-time special. He said, “I do – unless I can get some of the cast to help me write the third series and just sit down and introduce myself.”

As you know, all shootings are currently being postponed worldwide. After life in the United Kingdom, which should allow started again in July 2020 according to this report from The Guardian.
In August 2020, we learned via ProductionIntelligence that After Life season 3 was currently scheduled to begin filming in April 2021.
This is still the case in March 2021, the shooting should last “7 weeks” according to this production list.
So when did After life season 3 release on Netflix? Assuming the show ends in the summer, it will then go to Netflix for localization, and then almost certainly be released in the fall or winter of 2021/2022.
Why is After Life season 3 the final season?
Ricky Gervais often ended his shows after two or three seasons and After life will follow a similar path.
The mirror reports that Ricky Gervais has confirmed that season four will not return.
“I’ve already decided that there won’t be four.
“And you put these things in there to remind yourself because it’s tempting, but… there’s an old saying that goes ‘to conduct the orchestra you have to turn your back on the audience’.
“That’s right. The audience thinks they want another one, but they’re not sure. So you have to be careful.
What to expect After life season 3
Let’s quickly go over the final events of Season 2. During the town talent show where Tony seems to be recovering from his loss day by day, but he faces yet another setback by the end of season two. . Her father, played by David Bradley, died of dementia in the nursing home. We suspect a formal funeral is taking place at some point in season three.
The matte marriage appears to have been patched up throughout season two, but whether that will last long could be explored in the future.
The major plot for a third season would be the continuation and hopefully salvation of the local newspaper. Tony promised Sandy that the diary would continue and Tony seemed to have had the pleasure of having a new purpose in life.
We’ll also see how Tony deals with this loss of his father and how the relationship flourishes (or exhaustion as the case may be) with Emma who finally got her name revealed in Season 2.
Of course, when it comes to the cast, a lot of that is speculation at the moment. We expect to see continued flashbacks via Tony’s laptop and the introduction of new characters.
