Ricky Gervais is not one to stick around for more than two series. The Office came to a close after just 14 episodes and the writer and comedian’s next project, Extras, also ran for just two years.
But Gervais’s latest project, Derek, is the “first time ever” he has considered doing more. The writer and star of the Channel 4 comedy told RadioTimes.com he would definitely make more episodes to follow the second series which is set to begin on April 23.
“A special, at least,” he confirmed, before adding, “I do want to do something else. I want to end the story.” Good news for any Derek fans fearing the end is nigh.
