Hiding behind the first page of his new script, Ricky wrote on Facebook: “Writing is hard. Rewriting is fun. Drinking wine when you’ve just finished a first draft is f*****g great.”
His post has racked up more than 40,000 likes and had delighted viewers desperate to see what he has in store for the show’s return.
Ricky confirmed there will be another series of After Life in March.
“But now I’ve thought about it, I would really like to do another series.
“I’ve got an idea of where it can go. The second series of anything you do is always better, usually because you know the actors.”
His character Tony’s grief makes him fearless, and he starts to tell people what he really thinks.
Ricky added: “There is a little clue that there might be more of the show at the end of series one where he says, ‘I’m just going to use my superpower for good’.
“He can still be an a***hole and enjoy it. So there’s scope for more.”
Earlier this year The Sun Online revealed Ricky was “left gagging” and “feeling sick” as co-star Tony Way slurped his was through 15 ‘breast milk rice puddings’.

When asked about the laugh out loud scene, Tony exclusively told The Sun Online: “All of those ideas were there in the script but they weren’t fully formed. A lot of that came from rehearsals on the day.
“The stuff that really gets you is the stuff that happened by surprise. The breast milk rice pudding eating… I made some slurping sounds and then, because Ricky shoots the classic comedy way of two people in shot nearly all the time, that’s Laurel and Hardy, It’s the funniest way to look at a joke; that looks brilliant, but the problem is if the other person laughs you have to do it again.
“You end up eating 15 little milk puddings and then Ricky starts gagging because he feels sick, and then everyone starts to feel sick…”
