To bid an emotional adieu to Ricky Gervais’s bittersweet comedy saga After Life, Netflix has now unveiled the latest trailer. The third and final season of the show is slated for a January 14th, 2022 premiere.
In the trailer, Gervais, in his role as Tony, is seen declaring a trip in which he intends to scatter his father’s ashes – a topic that, quite typically, sparks off a series of interesting conversations and intriguing interactions.
Gervais, who is is also seen sitting on a graveyard bench with Penelope Wilton’s Anne, talks about various topics, including one of Tony’s biggest regrets involving his comments regarding the afterlife, made by him to his wife, played by Kerry Godliman.
Although this is the final chapter for the show, it does not mark the end of the partnership between the streaming service and Gervais himself. The comedian has pitched three different series to the streamer but failed to reveal more details as of yet.
Gervais was previously quoted saying: “I’ve got it down to three totally different ideas and Netflix has already bought it because I told them I want to end After Life now and so they said, ‘OK, we want the next thing’”.
Talking about how he had the “outline of three completely different sorts of sitcoms and shows,” he said: “We will just start with the next thing, same deal, but I don’t know which one I’m going to go for. I can’t even think about it yet”.
To tease the audience about the future content, Gervais added: “One of them is a sitcom. One is probably more sitcommy than anything I’ve ever done. I can’t tell you anything about it in case someone rips it off”.
With interesting conversations about God, the afterlife, death and more, the series has been a delightful journey. The first two seasons of After Life are now streaming on Netflix. The third season will begin streaming from January 14th, 2022.
