Ricky Gervais is no doubt a major talent bringing numerous great shows to the fans including Extras, The Office, The Ricky Gervais Show and Life’s Too Short, but none have had the same punch as his Netflix series Derek and thankfully it is back for an all-new season.
In case you missed it, the series follows Derek Noakes, a tender, innocent man whose love for his job and the people he cares for shines through. He's 49 years old and loves animals, Rolf Harris, Jesus, 'Deal or No Deal', 'Million Pound Drop' and 'Britain's Got Talent' - but his main hobby is autograph hunting. He works in a retirement home with his mate and landlord, Dougie. Derek cares deeply for old people because they're kind, funny and tell him stories about the olden days. Derek’s best friend, Hannah, is also a care worker at the home who is smart, witty and hard-working, but unlucky in love; and like Derek, always puts other people first.
After his emotional reunion with his father in season one, it looks to be mixing things up a bit more this time around. This season brings all the same humor and greatness as the previous, but showcases a lot more emotional impact. Gervais is always great, but in this series has been stepping it up most notably in one episode particular involving his pet dog that he delivers a brilliant performance that is sure to hit home with viewers.
It is hard to imagine that this series could have topped the first season, but it does just that so check out the entire season not on Netflix.
