After Life centres around Tony (Gervais), a middle-aged journalist whose deals with life after the death of his wife due to cancer. Gervais took to Twitter and shared the news about the renewal.
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
