Another echoed this, writing: "After watching that, I'm already a mess of tears! Can't wait for the new series, it'll be a rollercoaster of emotions again," while a third added: "Great. I can't wait for the snot to flow from crying one minute and laughing the next."

There's no news as to when the new episode will be released on the streaming site - Ricky simply captioned the video "#AfterLife3 Coming Soon" - but from his previous comments, it seems that there isn't much longer to wait.

Are you looking forward to the new episodes?

Back in September, Ricky told HELLO! and other press at the National Television Awards that viewers could expect season three "either just before or just after" Christmas, and it seems now that an early 2022 release date is more likely. 

Fans will no doubt be pleased as season two was released more than a year ago, in April 2020.

As for whether season three will be the comedy's last, Ricky previously told Lorraine: "That'll be the final instalment. It's the first time I've done a third series of anything but it felt right, and I fell in love with the characters, I think this should be it."
