Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant‘s latest series, HBO/BBC comedy Life’s Too Short, will come back to HBO for a special, which will wrap the story. Gervais had been talking about doing a Life Is Too Short special since the summer when it became clear that there will be no second season of the mocumentary created by and starring Warwick Davis, Gervais and Merchant, which premiered on HBO last February and ran for seven episodes. Now HBO has committed to the special, which will air later this year. Merchant is already working on a new comedy series for HBO, Hello Ladies.
