HBO has renewed The Ricky Gervais Show for a third season. Season 2 of the series is wrapping up this month, with the finale set to air Friday, April 15 at 9:00pm.
The show is based on the popular podcast of the same name, which last month passed a landmark 300 million downloads. Ricky Gervais, longtime collaborator Stephen Merchant, and friend Karl Pilkington lend their voices to the animated series, which features discussions on random topics such as spending the day with a doppelganger and having our minds read by aliens.
