Will there be an After Life season 3?
Ricky Gervais has spawned some very successful TV shows over the years, like The Office, Extras and Derek, but none of them have ever come back for a third season.
However, the actor and writer is set to buck that trend with his hugely successful show After Life and there will be a season 3.
Speaking on a Twitter livestream this evening, Ricky was asked if there would be another series.
He replied: "I'd love to do a season three, it looks like it's going to go down a storm, so if this reaction carries on then yes."
What happened in After Life season 2?
WARNING: Contains spoilers from season 2 of After Life
The heartwarming tale of widower Andy returned for a season 2.
In the first series of After Life we saw local reporter Andy coping with the anger he felt at his beloved wife Lisa dying of cancer.
By the end of it, he looked like he was ready to give love another shot with his father's nurse Emma – but in season 2 we find out Andy just "wasn't ready".
After making amends with everyone he hurt in the first series, this series saw Andy going over the top to please people.
The series was filled with raw emotion, but with a big comedy element.
One minute you are crying yours eyes out, the next you are laughing your head off.
Mixed in with this story of grief are some hilarious characters that bring tears of laughter to your eyes.
Anne the sex worker is back, and indulges in a romance with Pat the postman (yes that is his name).
Andy's brother in-law Matt's wife has left him and now Kath is after a slice of the action.
There is also a hilarious storyline involving a local am-dram group.
There is more pain for Andy though, as during the series his father passes away.
The show ends with high emotion as Andy is about to kill himself, but is stopped when he gets a call at the door from Emma wanting to give it another go.
