Tony considers suicide but later changes his mind to become a rebel and outcast. But his group of caring friends thwart his plans. The black comedy series gained praise for it’s humour and drama.
When to expect season 3
It was announced through the official Netflix account on Twitter on 6 May this year that season 3 will indeed come out. Though the exact date is not yet revealed, we have good reason to believe that it won’t take long, considering the pattern of release of season 1 and season 2.
Who make up the cast of season 3
The good news is all our favourite stars are expected to return in the third season. Ricky Gervais will play Tony, Penelope Wilton be back as Anne and Ashley Jensen will play Emma. Tom Basden, Tony Way, David Earl, Joe Wilkinson, Mandeep Dhillon, Joe Hartley, Roisin Conaty, Diane Morgan, and Ethan Lawrence will once again play our favorite characters onscreen.
And of course, Anti the German Shepherd, will once again return as Brandy! It’s rumoured that she is the most loved canine on Netflix!
The plot of season 3
As for the plot of After Life Season 3, with Anne forming a friendship with the owner of the Gazette and postman Pat and Daphne forming a new relationship the story has a lot more to tell us. The Gazette does not have to be shut down anymore and Emma becomes a companion to Tony.
Not yet over his wife’s death, Tony still occasionally gets suicide thoughts. As we watch, we see the life of an ordinary, yet remarkable, character unfolding in front of our very own eyes. Will Tony fully get over the loss of his beloved? What about the Gazette and the lives of Anne, Pat and Daphne? How will life be for Brandy?
Much as we’d love to tell you, we’ll have to wait until Gervais’ Season 3 comes out. But what we can count on is that the series will have it’s fair share of moments that can make us laugh, cry and identify with Tony.
What Gervais has to say about season 3
Gervais has never been reluctant on sharing his thoughts on his personal favourite series, the After Life. He has already said how much he wanted to make season 3 but that he wouldn’t do so if there was no demand. Guess what? As of now he has already finished the final script for episode 1 of season 3!
The simple life of this town journalist has captured the hearts of millions of viewers worldwide. Now that we know of Tony’s return along with Brandy in season 3, we are free to speculate, especially since Gervais has given us a lot to expect!
