Extras, a BBC comedy featuring Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant, will leave Netflix in March 2021. However it is available in the United States only for now.
The series aired in the United Kingdom from 2005 to 2007. It was originally adapted later for American audiences.
Gervais portrays Andy, an extra who works on television and film sets. He is always down about his chances in the entertainment industry. Throughout the show, you’ll spot a number of high-profile Hollywood actors who cameo including Ben Stiller, Samuel L. Jackson and Kate Winslett.
The series has been streaming on Netflix since March 31st, 2017 and now, four years later, it’s due to depart from Netflix (but only in the United States) on March 21st, 2021.
Netflix used to be host to all of Gervais’s old sitcoms including The Office but that departed alongside a large portion of other BBC hits back in April 2019.
It’s not yet clear where Extras will stream once it leaves Netflix but our gut instinct says that HBO Max could be the next logical home for the show.
Although it was originally a BBC program, the show aired on HBO in America in 2005.
It could also be sent to Acorn TV or Britbox, which both offer niche streaming services featuring British content.
Good news, Gervais lovers! Netflix has all his latest and future titles including two yet unannounced titles which will be released after After Life ends.
Netflix still allows you to stream Derek Special Correspondents and David Brent: Life on the Road.
After Life production will begin in April 2021.
