‘After Life’ follows a middle-aged journalist, Tony, who struggles to stay alive when his wife succumbs to cancer. After her death, all he wants is to take his life too but eventually decides against it. From there on, he leaves his formerly nice persona behind and vows revenge upon the world by doing whatever he wants. The reality, however, turns out to be a lot complicated than that. There are repercussions, and people do matter.
After Life Season 2 Recap
‘After Life’ does a great job of making the audience laugh and cry at the same time, and season 2 was no different. We saw Tony’s sympathetic side as he grapples with the other stages of his grief. While it’s clear that he could use a healthy relationship, he cannot pursue things with his father’s nurse Emma.
What to expect from After Life Season 3?
Season 2 ended with some heart-wrenching moments. Tony is shown watching some old videos of Lisa while holding some tablets. But before he could take them, Emma comes knocking at his door. The audience surely heaved a sigh of relief, but what does it mean for their relationship? Is there a possibility of Tony finally getting over his grief? Season 3 will continue to dig deeper into how small interactions can sometimes have a huge impact on someone’s life.
Release date and trailer
A release date for the new season hasn’t been announced yet. We can expect a trailer a month or weeks ahead of the premiere.
