Netflix have dropped the official Trailer for Ricky Gervais’ After Life Season 2.
Gervais directs and stars once again as the man with the honest quips, Tony. Still trying to turn over a new leaf, can he become the ‘better friend’? Or will it be ‘same old same old’ Tony?
Ricky himself gave an reaction to his series “ I was blown away by the reaction to season one. I’ve never experienced anything quite like it! It’s been truly heart-warming to see how the show has resonated with so many viewers on an emotional level. I can’t wait for everyone to see season 2 where hope is everything”
Set in the small fictitious town of Tambury, the comedy-drama series follows Tony (Ricky Gervais), a writer for the local newspaper whose life is upended after his wife dies from cancer.
In series 2, whilst still struggling with immense grief for his wife, we see Tony try to become a better friend to those around him. Each grappling with their own problems and only to be intensified by the looming threat of the local newspaper being shut down.
Will the town’s local Am-Dram show lift everyone’s spirits?
