icky Gervais has finished the first draft of "After Life" series two.
The 57-year-old comedian admitted penning the script has been "hard" but he loves rewriting scripts, and he enjoyed a celebratory glass of wine after completing the initial screenplay for the much-anticipated second season of the Netflix comedy.
He wrote on Twitter: "Writing is hard. Rewriting is fun. Drinking wine when you've just finished a first draft is f***ing great. (sic)"
Ricky also shared a picture of himself clutching hold of the script.
The "Office" star's tweet came just minutes after he thanked fans for praising the first series of the comedy, as well as some of his other work.
He wrote: "Thanks for all your amazing comments about #AfterLife, #Humanity, and #Derek, still flooding in. You are the best fans in the world. (sic)"
Netflix confirmed in April that "After Life" will be renewed for a second series.
The show will air again in 2020, after the streaming service ordered six more 30-minute episodes.
In the programme, Ricky plays Tony, a suicidal man who responds to the loss of his wife of 25 years by opting to punish the world by saying and doing whatever he wants with no inhibitions.
He said in a statement: "I have never had a reaction like this before. It's been insane.
"And heart-warming, but now I have to make sure the second season is even better so I'll probably have to work much harder than usual. Annoying really."
Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos added: ""After Life" has moved audiences from laughter to tears around the world and we are thrilled to announce that Ricky Gervais will be back with a second season on Netflix.
"We are so proud to play host to Ricky's brilliant stand-up comedy, specials, original films and series and join in the joy of the fans with his latest hit."
