Ricky Gervais announces bleak new comedy series for Netflix

Ricky Gervais has announced ‘After Life’ a six-part comedy coming to Netflix, about a man whose life collapses after the death of his wife.

He becomes suicidal, and therefore decides to live without a moral compass, doing and saying as he pleases. Of course, being a Gervais creation, there will no doubt be numerous philosophical themes weaved throughout.


Gervais has never played a character that doesn’t say whatever he likes (Brent, Derek, Andy Millman, etc. etc.), but this premise seems darker, with a misanthropic streak driving this behaviour, rather than that of the sympathetic foolish types he often plays.

Now, for a playful Shantner burn.


No air date has been announced.
