Netflix's After Life was one of the biggest TV shows of 2019 - and now the star and creator of the show has confirmed the release date for season 2.

Ricky Gervais made the announcement on his Instagram account where he also shared some images taken from season 2 - giving us a wee sneak peek.

"After Life Season 2 comes to Netflix on 24 April!" he wrote.

Netflix describes the show as the "story of Tony, who had an all-too-perfect life. But after his wife Lisa suddenly dies, Tony changes."

Back in March 2019, Ricky spoke about the posibility of the series continuing past the one season as it was originally intended.

"Now I've thought about it, and I really would like to do a second series because I fell in love with the characters and I've got an idea of where it can go.

"The second series is always better. Usually because you know the actors.

"There's a little clue at the end of series one when he says, 'I'm just going to use my superpower for good'. He can still be an a**hole, and just enjoy it more."

We can't wait to watch this one! Check out the trailer for season 1 below, but it does contain some coarse language.
