Netflix Releases First Look Images And A March Premiere Date For Ricky Gervais’ ‘After Life’
Netflix has released some “first look” images and a premiere date for the latest comedy series from Ricky Gervais, ‘After Life‘, which will premiere on the streaming service in March 2019.
Tony (Gervais) had a perfect life. But after his wife Lisa dies, Tony changes. After contemplating taking his own life, he decides instead to live long enough to punish the world by saying and doing whatever he likes from now on.

Starring alongside Gervais is Kerry Godliman (‘Derek’) as Tony’s wife Lisa, Tom Basden (‘Plebs’, ‘David Brent: Life On The Road’) as Tony’s brother-in-law Matt, Tony Way (‘Edge of Tomorrow’) as Tony’s best-friend Lenny, David Bradley (‘The Harry Potter series’, ‘Game of Thrones’) as Tony’s dad, and Ashley Jensen (‘Extras’) as a Nurse to Tony’s dad.
