Ricky Gervais has teased a hilarious scene from Season 3 of his hit Netflix show, After Life.
Since 2018, Ricky and the Netflix filming crews have been gracing the Old Town in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire to film the popular series.
The show follows the story of Tony after his life is turned upside down when his wife dies from breast cancer.
The story began in Season 1 where Tony was forced to deal with the lows of grief while dealing with his hilarious and quirky colleagues and friends who all live in the fictional town of Tambury.
After Life was an instant hit and was praised for its realistic perception of grief and love, as well as Gervais’ own dark humour.

Fans of the show who follow Gervais on social media were delighted today (Monday, December 28) when he teased a hilarious scene that will be included in the upcoming Season 3.
He explained on Twitter that he has created a one minute scene where Brian, the hoarder who pestered Tony to let him appear in the newspaper, attempts to tell the receptionist a joke.
Gervais wrote: “I’ve just written a 1 minute scene for After Life 3 where Brian tells the receptionist a joke that I know will be impossible to get through.
“20 minutes of outtakes guaranteed. Can’t wait.”
Fans are already loving the idea of the new scene, with one viewer replying to Gervais saying: “I just start thinking how it will be and only thinking made me laugh.
“Really can’t wait for the third season.”
Another After Life fan added: “I’m laughing already just at the thought of it!”
Gervais unveiled the draft script for Season 3 on Twitter a few weeks ago, although it remains unclear when the show will hit our screens.
The coronavirus pandemic will have undoubtedly had an effect on things but regardless, fans cannot wait.
