After Life Season 3 will include six episodes, each lasting about half an hour, just like the previous two seasons.

What Does the Third Season of After Life Mean?

Ricky Gervais has finally revealed the meaning of the poignant sequence, as well as what it means for Tony.

In an interview with Radio Times, he said: “Because it has been going on for 500 years, the fair is significant.

“It’s a spot where various people have been going for 500 years.” Finally, the conclusion states that we all die, but not today. And so it goes. That’s the way it ends.

“I think it’s a good conclusion, an optimistic ending, and a true ending,” says the author. And it’s simply saying, that’s all there is to it. What comes next? Because the entire show revolves around beginnings and ends. It’s all about putting people together at random.”

“You can’t pick where you’re born,” he went on to say. You don’t get to select which brain you have. You have no control over who you are or who you meet. We’re nothing more than souls swaying in the breeze. That is the central theme.”

“And hopefully you’ll meet someone who is right for you.” And [Tony] delivered, and it was flawless. And he knows he won’t get it again, which I’m fine with. It poses the key question: is life still worth living if you lose everything? And the answer to that is yes. If you have something to do, if you have something to get up for, keep going because you don’t have much time.”
