It has been confirmed by Channel 4 that Gervais ha made one final epsidoe to air this Christmas.

Ricky Gervais’s comedy drama will come to an end with a one-off special episode over the Christmas period.

The episode will feature Derek (Gervais) now dating Tracey, while still working at the retirement home. However, Hannah (Kerry Godliman) is now at a new job closer to home with partner Tom (Brett Goldstein).

Channel 4’s Head of Comedy Phil Clarke said: “Christmas seems a wonderfully fitting time for us to bid farewell to Derek, a show that truly celebrates generosity and goodwill.”

Gervais previously indicated that he was considering either a special or a third series of the comedy.

He said: “I did toy with a third series, particularly after the Emmy nod, but I decided to stick to my usual formula of two series and a special. It’s a bittersweet experience as always.

“I’m sorry to end it but I know that leaving something you love and starting something else is always the best thing to do creatively.”
