Binge watch THIS show now

Clear your diaries! Season two of Ricky Gervais' brilliant After Life drops on Fri (24 Apr) and you're going to want to binge it.

If you haven’t seen Ricky Gervais’ After Life then a) what are you playing at? and b) now is the time to redeem yourself, because the second season has just dropped on Netflix. So get to it, stat. 

After Life promo shot

The show, written by and starring Gervais, follows a grieving small-town newspaper journo struggling to deal with the death of his wife. No one does dry humour quite like Ricky Gervais (I mean, did you see his 2020 Golden Globes speech?) and this is the comedian at his best. 

The first season is full of darkly funny moments, but there’s much more to the series than that – with the six-parter touching on poignant issues such as loss, Alzheimer’s, cancer and depression. 

The next instalment is promising much of the same formula – you’ll be laughing one minute and sobbing uncontrollably the next – so make sure you’re packing Kleenex. 

Check out the trailer for season two below.

    I can’t take him seriously. Doesn’t look very good.

      I’m not a big Ricky Gervais fan, but it’s very good. Go on, give it a go.
