‘Derek‘, the wonderful comedy series written and acted in by Ricky Gervais is coming to an end. ‘Derek – The Special’ will be the last episode of the series, and will be a one-off special that will air on Monday, 22nd December on Channel 4 at 10pm. A new video trailer of the episode has just been released.
In ‘Derek – The Special‘ we get to see Hannah and Tom’s wedding, a terrible best man speech by the always drunk Kev, and Derek’s new girlfriend Tracey.
As for only writing two seasons of ‘Derek’ and a special, Ricky Gervais had this to say about it.
“I did toy with a third series, particularly after the Emmy nod, but I decided to stick to my usual formula of 2 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”.
Watch the trailer to the last episode of ‘Derek’ below. I’m so sad it’s ending I think I’m going to cry.
