Ricky Gervais has thanked fans for the success of ‘After Life’

The creator and star of ‘After Life’, Ricky Gervais, has thanked his fans for making it the most watched British comedy in the world.

Taking to Instagram, Gervais shared an image with the caption: “I have no Emmy campaign for #AfterLife. No press ads, no billboards, nothing. I didn’t have any of those things for the launch either, but fans of the show came through for me as usual and made it the most watched British comedy in the world. And that’s better than any award.”

The hugely popular Netflix series – which sees the comedian play widower Tony – released its second season during the coronavirus pandemic and topped the streaming site’s charts. Now it appears to have reached another impressive milestone, becoming the most popular comedy across the globe.
