After Life 2
Ricky Gervais has confirmed that After Life season 2 is coming in spring 2020.
The show's creator revealed the news during an appearance on Friday night's Graham Norton Show.
Speaking to Graham, Ricky said that filming on the new episodes is complete and he's now in the editing stage.
"I'm editing now and I'll finish that after Christmas."
"Then it takes two months to put it into, like, 120 languages. That's why it takes so long."
Ricky also discussed the impact that After Life is having on fans of the series.
"I've never had a reaction like it and with social media now, you hear about it," he said.
"It has been overwhelming and it's the type of reaction as well."
"People have been coming up to me on the street and saying 'Oh, I lost my mum, or I lost my buddy'. I'm there thinking 'Oh my God, everyone is grieving'."
Last month Ricky took to Instagram to share a first look at After Life season 2.
He posted a photo of his character Tony, his deceased wife Lisa and their dog Brandy.

Gervais confirmed a second season of the hit show was coming back in March.
Just 20 days after season 1 aired he took to Twitter with a statement which started, 'Thanks again for all the love for #AfterLife.'
'I have never had a reaction like this. The reviews have been great but the response from viewers has been fucking amazing.'
'And that means so much more to me. You are the best fans in the world. Oh, and I've started writing series 2.'
Season 1 of the show follows Tony, a local newspaper journalist whose wife has died.
Struggling to cope with his grief, Tony decides to give up his nice guy act and punish the world by doing and saying whatever he likes.
But his friends and family step in to help, and Tony's new carefree life ends up being a little trickier than he had intended.
Gervais wrote, directed and stars in the comedy.
Speaking to NME he said that After Life was, “the most dramatic, the darkest and the most uncompromising," piece of work he's ever created.
“Some people will love it, some people will hate it, most people won’t know it exists, so I’m all for that.”
After Life season 1 is streaming on Netflix now with season 2 coming in the spring.
