After Life season two

Ricky Gervais has confirmed that After Life season two is in the works.

He revealed in a tweet yesterday that he's already writing new episodes, just 20 days after the series premiered.

Thanks again for all the love for #AfterLife. I have never had a reaction like this," wrote the comedian.

"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."

After Life premiered on Netflix at the start of the month.

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.”

All six episodes of After Life are streaming on Netflix now.
