'After Life' Season 3 First Look, Netflix, Ricky Gervais as Tony

Created, directed by, and starring Ricky Gervais, the critically acclaimed Netflix dramedy After Life is coming to an end with its third and final season, which premieres on January 14. Struggling to come to terms with the passing of his wife Lisa (Kerry Godliman), Tony (Gervais) looks to start a new chapter in life with the help of his family and friends.

“Set in the small fictitious town of Tambury, the show follows Tony, a writer for the local newspaper whose life is upended after his wife dies from cancer. Whilst still struggling with immense grief for his wife, Tony starts to realize that making other people feel good is what can give him hope and a reason to live. After all, every end is a new beginning,” states the season description.

Season 2 ended on a slight cliffhanger, with Tony about to take a handful of pills after his father’s (David Bradley) funeral, only to be interrupted when his potential new love interest Emma (Ashley Jensen) comes knocking at the door. He lets her in, leaving their future open in the upcoming new season.
