Critics Consensus

Though After Life's second season struggles to affirm its existence, it's a solid entry for anyone aching for a little more contemplative gallows humor.

Audience Reviews for After Life: Season 2

  • Jul 31, 2022
    Seasons 2 & 3 continued to be entertaining despite the story being centered on dealing with grief. Quite the tearjerker.
  • Jun 30, 2022
    I loved season one but the second season hit me differently. It brought so much more emotion to a show that was already full of heartbreak. The story line with Tony's father hit close to home in every single way, almost identical to me with my grandmother and all props to the actor David Bradley for his portrayal of someone with Dementia. But don't worry it's still as funny as the first if not more.

    I just love dark humor and... u can't go wrong on dark humor with Ricky Gervais on it.
  • Jun 10, 2022
    More of the same from season one, which isn't a bad thing at all because s1 was brilliant!
  • Jun 06, 2022
    Basically the same as the first season. Predictable jokes, forgettable characters. Meh
  • Jun 05, 2022
    I can't say enough good things about this show! Quite simply, it makes me happy! Gervais' humor is spectacularly witty and dry, and I truly can't get enough. The characters are all amusing in their own ways, and the theme of the main character's habit of keeping himself company by watching old videos of his wife is tremendously endearing.
  • Feb 01, 2022
    After Life really comes in to its own in season 2 and cements its style and pattern without becoming stale or repetitive at all. A must watch.
  • Jan 19, 2022
    I wanted to like this and it has its bright spots but it seems to get old watching the same theme (grieving and not getting over his wife's death) over and over again. If it would have incorporated a wider theme or moved on more quickly I would have liked it better I think.
  • Jan 14, 2022
    Again really enjoyed watching After Life and I am still bothered by the 6 episodes a season. This season was again a joy to watch, some less than the first season; because it was a bit more cliche this time. Still really find this story very moving, but nevertheless a joy to watch because of the touch of dark humour.
  • Jan 02, 2022
    (all seasons) Gervais's foray into more dramatic territory is comfortably above par but is far from a life-affirming revelation. Writing, directing and starring, he tackles the tonal variety in a competent manner and the show offers lots of resonant moments, yet all that is engulfed in a rather predictable story arc. Nevertheless, despite the message's familiarity or the obvious ways in which it's being conveyed at times, "After Life" maintains the weight that pertains to representing a true slice of life.
