Believe it or not there are some people in the world who actually like Ricky Gervais – his Netflix series “After Life” has been number 1 on Netflix in many parts of the world again since season 2 premiered recently. Even more evidence of this is that Netflix has just signed an overall deal with the writer, actor, director and “comedian” to produce new scripted shows as well as stand-up specials. The deal also includes the renewal of “After Life” for a 3rd season at Netflix.
Because so many of you watched #AfterLife2 so quickly and made it Number 1 again, the nice people at @Netflix have suggested that I get off my fat arse and do another season. This is all your fault. pic.twitter.com/NDD2gGnFXx
