After Life centers on Tony, who had a perfect life. But after his wife Lisa suddenly dies, Tony changes. After contemplating taking his own life, he decides instead to live long enough to punish the world by saying and doing whatever he likes from now on. He thinks it's like a Super Power - not caring about himself or anyone else - but it turns out to be tricky when everyone is trying to save the nice guy they used to know.
Netflix announced today that After Life has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes less than two weeks after the dark comedy's sophomore release, which has continued to garner critical praise.
Created by Ricky Gervais, who also writes and directs every episode, After Life follows a newspaper writer named Tony, played by Gervais, who had everything he wanted in life - until his wife suddenly passed away. Now struggling to come to terms with his new normal, Tony stops caring about anything and tries to adopt a new, rougher persona as a way to get back at the universe.
Look for Season 3 of After Life in 2021.
