After Life is the new Netflix series from Ricky Gervais looking at how we cope with grief.

He’s adopting a new attitude, he can say or do what he wants.

The cast is full of familiar faces including David Bradley, Penelope Wilton, Ashley Jensen, Tom Basden, Tony Way and Diane Morgan.

The series is set in the UK so you’ll probably recognise a few of the locations.

The main filming was done in a couple of towns, Bristol, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
