With the second season for 'After Life' due to arrive on Netflix next week, 'The Office' probably seems like a distant memory for fans of Ricky Gervais' comedy.

The groundbreaking series ran for just two seasons, but went on to become a phenomenon, spawning an equally successful US series, and turned Gervais into a household name.

Yet for Gervais, the thoughts of rebooting couldn't be further from his mind. "I don't think I'll ever bring back the old favourites. People think they want more, but they don't," Gervais told the Sun in a recent interview.

"They just want the feeling they had when they saw it for the first time. David Brent at 60 is too sad."

In fact, looking at 'David Brent: Life on the Road', it's clear how depressing that would be. Probably for the best, so.

Still, 'After Life' could well go on for another season, with Gervais happily admitting it's the first show he's done where he wants to make a third season. "It's the richest world I've created, it's not just a comedy about being in an office or an extra. So I've started thinking about it, but we have to see how season two goes down."

"If people say: 'This is the worst show' then I won't do one. It has to be a wanted encore from Netflix and the public for me to do it."

'After Life' Season 2 arrives on Netflix on April 24th.
