Comedy-drama series returns in April

Netflix has set a return date for Ricky Gervais’ “After Life” comedy-drama series.

The stand-up comedian created, written and directed the series. It returns April 24.

Netflix also released the first handful of pictures from Season 2 Thursday, and they show the comedian in the middle of a huge belly-laugh on at least one occasion.

The series is set in the “small, fictitious town of Tambury,” and follows Gervais as Tony, “a writer for the local newspaper whose life is upended after his wife dies from cancer,” according to Netflix.

Here is the official description for Season 2:
“In season 2, whilst still struggling with immense grief for his wife, we see Tony try to become a better friend to those around him. Each grappling with their own problems and only to be intensified by the looming threat of the local newspaper being shut down.
Will the town’s local Am-Dram show lift everyone’s spirits?”
The six-part Netflix original series comes from Derek Productions. Charlie Hanson is a producer and Gervais and Duncan Hayes executive produce.
Cast returning for Season 2 along with Gervais includes Penelope Wilton (“Downton Abbey,” “Doctor Who”), David Bradley (“Harry Potter,” “Game of Thrones”), Ashley Jensen (“Extras”), Tom Basden (“Plebs,” “David Brent: Life On The Road”), Tony Way (“Edge of Tomorrow”), David Earl (“Cemetery Junction,” “Derek”), Joe Wilkinson (“Him and Her”), Kerry Godliman (“Derek”), Mandeep Dhillon, Jo Hartley, Roisin Conaty and Diane Morgan (“David Brent: Life On The Road”), and Tracy-Ann Oberman (“Eastenders”). Other cast members include Peter Egan (“Downton Abbey”), Ethan Lawrence (“Bad Education”) and Bill Ward (“Coronation Street,” “Emmerdale”).
