“After life”the series directed, written, performed and produced by Ricky Gervaisended last January 14 with the six episodes of the third season: we had left Tony grieving the loss of his wife, suffering from breast cancer, and his quest for revenge by doing and saying anything: he considers it his “superpower”, which distracts him from thoughts suicides – but it is, in reality, the superpower of the people around him that makes him (un) voluntarily a better person.

The original series Netflixinterrupted last year by the pandemic, is certainly not the only title on the small screen that addresses the theme of death: paradises, funerals and afterlife have in fact already inspired feature films, animated films, documentaries and series, both dramas and comedies; here are ten titles, among all those available on the various streaming platforms.
