The third and final season of Ricky Gervais’ Netflix melodrama After Life has finally dropped – and thankfully, it has a stellar soundtrack.


The show follows Tambury journalist Tony Johnson (Gervais), who decides to punish the rest of the world for his wife’s death by doing and saying whatever he pleases, an action he terms a “superpower”.

The black comedy-drama has provided viewers with some tear-jerking moments during its stellar run, and the heavy scenes have only been heightened by the show’s various music choices.

After Life season 3 features a wide range of musical acts, which serve to reflect Tony's range of emotions. These include legendary songwriters Bob Dylan and Cat Stevens, as well as Rod Stewart and Joni Mitchell. "I chose the biggest artists and my favourite tunes of all time," Gervais recently explained to Smooth Radio.

For viewers who think they've recognised a song in the last six episodes but can't quite put their finger on it, has put together a list of the licensed songs in After Life season 3.
