The TV series’ pilot aired in April 2012 and was ordered to series soonafter. The six episodes began running on January 30th and will finish this evening.
Of the Derek series, Gervais said: “Derek is probably my favourite thing of everything I’ve done, so I can’t wait to start thinking up some new adventures for the gang.”
Back in September, Netflix announced that they had picked up the show for US distribution. It will become available for streaming in April.
