THE much-anticipated third season of After Life has finally hit Netflix and fans are gutted this is the last instalment of this heartfelt Ricky Gervais series.
Funnyman Gervais has wowed viewers with his emotional turn as Tony Johnson, a man struggling to rebuild his life after his wife’s death from cancer.

Set in the fictional town of Tambury (parts of which some Londonders might recognise as Hampstead), the bittersweet Netflix comedy portrays Tony as a grieving man raging with the world.
The journalist decides to spend his time making those around him (played by the likes of Ashley Jensen, Diane Morgan, and Penelope Wilton) as miserable as he is.
But Tony’s pals and co-workers choose to ignore his cruelty, understanding that it comes from a place of grief, and strive to make him a better person.
This begins to change the fella’s outlook on life, but can he forgive the world in the wake of further loss?
The cleverly-named After Life has captured the hearts of viewers across the globe, especially at a time when lots of people have lost loved ones themselves.

Some fans are devastated that this six-episode season is the last, and they’ve made their way to Twitter to share their sorrow.
One wrote: “Can’t wait to watch all of this in one day then be disappointed. I’ve got no After Life left to watch”.
A second chirped: “I’m excited. Happy After Life day Tony. Thanks so much Rickey Gervais. Can’t quite believe it’s finally here, and now I’m a little scared to watch it cos the sooner I start, the sooner I’m gonna finish”.
While a third simply said: “I don’t want this show to end!”
Opening up about the series, Gervais told Deadline that Covid threw a spanner in the works during filming, with crew members testing positive left, right, and centre.
But luckily they managed to pull it off – After Life season 3 is now available on Netflix!
