After Life: get your first-look at Ricky Gervais’ new Netflix series

A host of first-look images have been released for After Life, the new Netflix series from Ricky Gervais.

The 6-part series was created, written and directed by Gervais who stars as Tony. The cast includes 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.

Take a look at the first images below:

Tony (Ricky 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. He thinks it’s like a Super Power — not caring about himself or anyone else — but it turns out to be tricky when everyone is trying to save the nice guy they used to know.

After Life also stars Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey, Doctor Who), David Earl (Cemetery Junction, Derek), Joe Wilkinson (Him and Her), Kerry Godliman (Derek), Mandeep Dhillon, Jo Hartley, Roisin Conaty, Tim Plester and Diane Morgan (David Brent: Life On The Road).

The series is a Netflix original series from Derek Productions. Charlie Hanson is producer and Ricky Gervais and Duncan Hayes are executive producers.
