After Life season 2

Season 2 of the hit series After Life has landed on Netflix and a moment too soon.

After Life has enjoyed raging success since its premiere last March. Starring Ricky Gervais as widower Tony Johnson, the black comedy-drama follows him as he mourns his wife’s death.

Fans went into overdrive after a trailer for the new season dropped earlier this month and thankfully the wait is over as season two is finally available to stream on the platform – just in time for the weekend.

According to the trailer, this season sees Tony attempt to be nicer to all those who helped him in his grief, his dog Brandy also returns. Only having arrived on Netflix this morning, people already have a lot to say about it… with some claiming to have finished it already. We’re impressed.

Don’t worry, no spoilers – wouldn’t want to give anything away before we all watch it in one sitting later this evening…

There have already been calls for further episode, unsurprising given that fans have eaten the new season up in record time. On second thought, might be better to space out the episodes and not watch it all in one go… plenty of time to fill, not enough After Life.
