Ricky Gervais calls time on Derek

by | Sep 16, 2014 | All

Ricky Gervais has revealed plans to finish Derek with a feature-length special.

Gervais confirmed the news to readers of his blog. ‘I’ve been working on a Derek special,’ he wrote. ‘I did toy with a third series, particularly after the Emmy nod, but I decided to stick to my usual formula of two series and a special.’

When the Channel 4 show was nominated for best comedy show at the Emmies earlier in the year – eligible because it is available on Netflix in the States – Gervais said he hadn’t decided on Derek’s future but said: ‘There’s so much TV done because of this insatiable need to fill all the air space. A third season can ruin the first two.’

There is no definitive word on when the final episode of Derek will air on Channel 4
