Derek, the show created by and starring Ricky Gervais, which made its debut as a Netflix original last month, is now in the rehearsal stage for its second season:

The pilot premiered in April of last year on Channel 4 in the UK, then the series began to air in January of this year. 9 months later, it came to Netflix (with the “Netflix Original” title) everywhere else where the service is available.

We don’t know much about what will happen in season 2 so far, but Gervais did have this to say about the Kev character in a recent AMA (ask me anything) on reddit:

“Yes, Kev is one of my favourite characters, and I was so glad that the audience went from being uncomfortable around him to really rooting for him at the end. He has another dramatic journey in Series 2, but you’ll be pleased to know he is still a drunken, unhygienic pervert.”

I don’t think fans would have it any other way.
