Life’s Too Short: Ricky Gervais Comedy Ending; No Season Two

Life's Too Short Tv show endingThe Ricky Gervais comedy Life’s Too Short is coming to an end. The show will wrap on HBO later this year with a series finale special.

The mockumentary-style series ran for one season of seven episodes. They aired on HBO from February 19 until April 8, 2012.

Life’s Too Short follows an actor (Warwick Davis) who’s desperate to revitalize his sinking career. Gervais and his frequent collaborator, Stephen Merchant, created the TV series and also appeared in it.

Gervais had been talking about doing a Life’s Too Short special since the summer when it became clear that there likely wouldn’t be a second season. HBO has now committed to the special.

What do you think? Were you a fan of the show? Are you looking forward to the wrap-up special?

    I love Ricky and all his stuff but life’s too short just didn’t excite me as much as extras still does! it was a bit egotistical to me. I know the whole concept, I understand it. Johnny Depp was the highlight! he was fantastic and I thought Warwick was great in it. It was really just missing something for me.
