The third series of After Life has landed on Netflix – and TV enthusiasts are eager to know if there will be a fourth season.
The dark dramedy stars Ricky Gervais as widower Tony Johnson, struggling to navigate life after the death of his wife, Lisa.
Tony grapples with grief and his mental health while living alone with his beloved dog, Brandy.
The show also follows his antics in his job as a local newspaper journalist, where he makes some unlikely friends in both his colleagues and the community.
After Life hit 100 million views on Netflix in 2021, proving popular with audiences around the world.
It’s no wonder the third season has been so highly anticipated – but will there be another?
Will there be an After Life season four?
It’s bad news for fans of the series, as Ricky Gervais revealed series three would be the sitcom’s final instalment.
Speaking to Lauren Laverne on BBC Radio 6, the comedian explained why After Life can’t go beyond season three.
He said that the number of episodes is the ‘perfect length,’ adding:
“You have to decide when that [the ending] comes and I think 18 episodes is about as long as it can be.”
All three seasons of After Life are available to stream now on Netflix.
