Ricky Gervais and Ashley Jensen recently confirmed that After Life is coming back one more time. The first part of the show received a positive response from both the fans and critics.
Ricky gave an incredible performance as a newspaper writer in the dark comedy. His character Tony had to go through a lot, he was struggling with the death of his wife, and hence, he decided to kill himself.
The series was a bright blend of some severe themes like depression with dark, intelligent comedy, which makes it somewhat unique.
Do We Need Another Season Of After Life?
The first season was quite complete in itself; the ending provided an appropriate closure. So, it is evident that a second part will need to be justified. By the last episode, Tony had realized the fact that he is not the only one in this situation. Most of the people are fighting their own internal battles just like him.
Season 1 left a slight window open for a second part. Tony was seen saying that he will continue being his blunt self, but only towards those “who deserve it”.
Despite a few flaws, if you enjoyed After Life the first time around, you should watch season two. After all, we are living in a world full of sorrows, so a bit of hope and kindness is the need of the hour.
After Life 2 Release Date
Season two is all set for a release on April 24, 2020, on Netflix. Just like it preceding season After Life 2 is going to have six episodes.

Probable Story Of After Life 2
In the next season, we expect Tony to become a better co-worker and friend to those who care about him. Tony’s pessimistic view about life changed a little bit in the previous season, and that can work in his favour. He is expected to try to correct his mistakes and mend his relationships with the people he has hurt.
In the first season, Tony slowly started developing feelings for his father’s nurse, Emma, so a new turn in their relationship will not be surprising at all. But before that, Tony had to do something for his newspaper agency which is about to shut down; otherwise, he will become jobless.
