While it may not boast a gargantuan budget like The Witcher, Ricky Gervais’s After Life still found a loving home on Netflix when it debuted back in 2019.
After an absence of almost two years, the dark comedy finally returned to Netflix for its long-awaited third season.
However, the new batch of episodes will be After Life’s final instalment which has left fans wondering why After Life season 4 won’t be happening on Netflix.

After Life season 3 release date and plot
After Life’s third and final season arrived on Netflix on January 14th, 2022, almost two years since the show’s second series landed back in April 2020.
Created by and starring Ricky Gervais, After Life tells the story of Tony, a features writer for the local newspaper whose life is turned on its head following the death of his wife, Lisa.
Struggling to find a reason to carry on, Tony is given fresh hope and belief in season 3 by those around him after previously aiming to cruelly scorn them at every possible opportunity.
Why After Life won’t return for season 4
Ricky Gervais’s After Life is the first of his series which he has continued for three seasons, all previous creations have ended at two.
However, the 60-year-old actor and comedian has called time on After Life and has confirmed that it won’t return for a fourth season.
Speaking to BBC Radio 6’s Lauren Laverne , Ricky Gervais said that the show was the “perfect length” and that “I think 18 episodes is about as long as it can be,” suggesting that the show has reached its natural end-point.
However, in an interview with Deadline, Gervais said that a fourth season should arguably still happen.
“Every time someone asks that I get a little adrenaline rush wishing it wasn’t it and I could do a fourth,” he explained. “I know for a fact I could. But the reason I said it is definitely the end is so I’d be bullied and made fun of for going back on it.”
“It’s a no-brainer I should do a fourth,” he continued. “I should do it in terms of economics and the audience would love it, everything points towards it except would series four be as good as the first three and actually better because it’s no good for it to be just as good.”
“I don’t want it to outstay its welcome,” Gervais concluded.
Fans still want more
While After Life may be coming to an end with season 3, fans of the show are still keen for it to continue with many taking to social media to ask for more.
Replying to Ricky Gervais, one fan on Twitter wrote: “Thank you so much for After Life. Thanks for the laughter and the tears. Amazing. Please please season 4.”
While another commented: “ @rickygervais I have no doubt After Life Season 3 will be a record-breaking success, and I know it’s the last series, but if God came down and told you it was his favourite show would you consider making season 4?”
And finally, this fan summed up their feelings in After Life-inspired gif form:
After Life season 3 is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on January 14th, 2022.
