After Life Season 2

Synopsis: Dealing with death is a difficult topic of conversation. Comedian Ricky Gervais tries to tackle it with comedy in After Life. Tony Johnson (Ricky Gervais) is the head of feature stories at the local newspaper, Tambury Gazette. Tony’s life is tragically flipped on its head when his wife, Lisa (Kerry Godliman), dies from breast cancer. Tony becomes depressed and contemplates suicide, but he decides to say and do whatever he wants in order to punish the world for his wife’s death. Tony’s rudeness and kindness backfire when he’s undermined by the kindness shown by the people around him.

At the end of the first season, during a graveside meeting with Anne (Penelope Wilton), Tony reveals that he’s going to continue speaking his mind. However, he’s only going to punish those who deserve it. Tony is going to use this “superpower” for good in the second season.

Why you should stream After Life Season 2: Although it’s a heavy subject matter, Gervais puts a funny and heartfelt spin on how people deal with death. The series seemed to resonate with a lot of viewers as it was one of the top 10 most popular releases in the UK. After Life Season 2 should arrive sometime in Spring 2020.
