Ricky Gervais' Netflix show 'After Life' was one of the biggest shows of 2019, so it's no surprise that its coming back for a second season this year!

But star and creator of the show - Ricky - recently revealed that he's anticipating a third season... Even before the release of the second!

"I've never had a reaction like this, so there is that [sense of] 'Oh, I could only ruin it', you know what I mean. So you've got to try and make it better." he said in a recent podcast.

"Which is good, it's a good state of mind to be in, it's a good pressure. I've got to make this better than before - that's a lovely pressure to have as a writer."

"That's not a reason not to do a second series because the first one went down so well... Most people want it the other way - they want too many series because they think it's their favourite show."

"I get that, as a viewer I get it, but as an artist you have got to get out a bit early. But as I say, this is the first one I've - I think I'm gonna do a third because the world we've created is too good and rich."
