In the film, Tony Johnson (Ricky Gervais), whose been suffering from despair since his wife Lisa Johnson (Kerry Godliman) died of breast cancer, is depicted as having suicidal thoughts regularly. The first episode of this Netflix original drama aired on March 8th, 2019. As Tony strives to make a livelihood among his friends in the fictional hamlet of Tambury, it was well praised for its profound thoughts on anxiety, existential crises, unpleasant emotions, and the quest for reasons to live.
In April 2020, the show will premiere its second season, making it the most-watched British comedy in the last decade, with an audience of 85 million people from across the world. So, to keep the legend alive and satisfy the enormous fans, the creator recently announced that he’d be returning for a second season. The following information will help you prepare for the third season of After Life.
The release date has been set for the third season of After Life.
Ricky Gervais signed a mega-contract on Netflix on May 6th, 2020, which included the addition of After Life Season 3 after the show’s worldwide success. According to the showrunner, season 3 filming began on April 19th, 2021. COVID’s epidemic forced a halt in production after just 35 days of filming; no new date was in the works.
On September 1st, 2021, Gervais released an update on the conclusion of the editorial and musical production process. A release date hasn’t been set in stone by the creator of Netflix, but he has stated his doubts about completing the project in the remaining days of 2021. In light of the preceding, we may predict that After Life Season 3 will premiere in the first quarter of 2022, at the very latest.
Season 3’s cast of After Life
The following actors have been cast as part of After Life Season 3:
Richard Gervais plays Tony Johnson, the lead character; Ashley Jensen plays Emma; Lady Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey) plays Anne; Tom Basden plays Matt Braden; Tony Way (Game of Thrones) plays Lenny; Mandeep Dhillon plays Sandy; Roisin Conaty plays Roxy.
Expected Season 3 Storyline for After Life
First, let’s take a look back at what happened in the last season of After Life. Season 2 ended with the death of Tony’s father, who had been in a declining state of health due to dementia—adding to Tony’s anguish in the wake of the loss of his dearest wife. After asking his friend to leave him alone in the final scene, Tony began to have suicidal thoughts and ultimately tried to take his own life. Due to Emma’s intervention, he could get away with it.
In other words, it’s predicted that the third season of After Life will begin with Emma integrating herself into Tony’s daily routine as a prelude to a possible romance. Tony could emerge from the shadows if he can overcome his existential crises and nihilism this season. What sort of decisions does he make when he only has Emma and his father to look after?
