RICKY Gervais has revealed a big spoiler for After Life season 3 – and fans all shared the same reaction.
It comes as fans eagerly await the third installment of the black comedy-drama, which was confirmed earlier this year.
The hit show follows the life of a journalist called Tony, who works for his local paper in a made-up town called Tambury.
It documents Tony’s struggles after becoming a widower when his wife Lisa sadly dies of cancer.
Tony hits rock bottom and contemplates suicide a number of times, but is saved by his beloved dog Brandy.
Viewers seemed to be very concerned about Brandy’s fate but the actor, 60, revealed that they needn’t be.
Taking to Twitter, Ricky shared a black and white picture of himself and his beloved furry friend.
“Getting back into the studio to work on the After Life score,” he wrote.
He continued: “In the studio all week recording the score for #AfterLife. It seems to be affecting me emotionally more than usual. Not sure if that’s because the music is so beautiful, the menopause or all the s**t that’s happening in the world.
“Thanks for making #AfterLife the most-watched British comedy in the world. Season 3 is the best yet. Also, the dog does not die. Good Girl!”
Fans of the much-loved show, which first hit our screens back in 2019, flocked to the reply section to show how happy they are about the news.
One person wrote: “Thanks, for making Season 3. To you, the other incredible people involved, but especially the Dog. Needs a Dogsta, definitely.”
Another penned: “Yay! I’m so glad to hear the dog does not die. I couldn’t bare it!”
“So glad the dog doesn’t die, don’t care about anyone else,” another joked.
And another fan added: “Thank god the dog doesn’t die! Now I can watch it. I NEVER watch anything where the dog dies…..”
Afterlife premiered back in March 2019 and with the second season following shortly after in April 2020.
The release date of season three is yet to be confirmed.
