Taking to Twitter last month, Gervais, 58, shared a shot of himself with a completed draft of the shooting script, telling fans: ‘I start pre-production on #AfterLife2 next week and film it in September and October.

‘Then I’m bringing [stand-up show] #SuperNature to Europe! Madrid, Paris, Berlin, and Prague to start with. Stay Tuned for details.’ 

Responding to a fan after being asked if series two was harder to write, Gervais admitted the only pressure was hoping it matched the success of its predecessor.

‘It was easier as all the characters and locations were in place, but harder in the sense that series 1 went down so well, if that makes sense,’ he tweeted. 

Posting on Instagram later that day, Gervais joked that he had just undergone a medical examination on behalf of the new series. 

Just had my medical exam for #afterlife2 & they’re pretty sure I’ll make it through the filming process without dying,’ he shared alongside a snap of himself raising a glass of wine.

‘They couldn’t guarantee that I’d be around to watch it go out on Netflix though. Still, cheers!’ 

The first series ended on an optimistic note after Tony, whose life is overshadowed by thoughts of suicide, arranges a date with his dementia stricken father’s nurse – played by former Extras co-star Ashley Jensen. 

Alongside Jensen, actors Mandeep Dhillon, Diane Morgan, Tony Way, Joe Wilkinson, Tom Basden and David Bradley are all expected to return for the second run. 

The first series of After Life was filmed on location around Bristol, Camber Sands, Hemel Hempstead, Beaconsfield, Rickmansworth and London suburb Hampstead.
