Ricky Gervais announces he’s finished writing After Life season 3 script

Comedian Ricky Gervais has announced that he has finished the first draft of After Life season three.

The 59-year-old star took to Instagram to reveal the exciting news on Thursday.

Sharing a snap of the draft trip alongside a bottle of whiskey, Ricky penned: "This calls for a little celebration."

Ricky's latest social media update unsurprisingly caught the attention of his 2.8million followers.

Leaving a message in the comment section underneath the photograph, one fan penned: "OMG so exciting. The best writing ever."

Another After Life fan added: "This show is so powerful and relatable, Ricky plays the role so well."

A third excited fan wrote: "Can't wait! You are b****y wonderful… says it as it is and loves animals… the best a man can get."

While a fourth said: "Yes the last two sessions were amazing. Can't wait."

Ricky confirmed earlier this year that the hit Netflix show would be returning for a third instalment, much to the delight of his adoring army of fans.

However, the actor, who plays Tony Johnson in the popular series, did say that it would be the last of the series.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: "I've already made my mind up – there just won't be a fourth.

"You never say never but you put those things out there to make you remember because it's tempting, it's very tempting."

Ricky has won seven BAFTA Awards, five British Comedy Awards, two Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination under his belt.

He is credited as the creator, executive producer, director, and writer for After Life.

While he has ruled out a fourth series, Ricky previously admitted he felt surprised by the incredible reaction to the show and was overwhelmed by the love.

He told LADbible: "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.

"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."
