However, Ricky said the third series will be the last one – as he's "too fat and old" to film anymore.
Speaking to Lorraine on Wednesday morning, he said: "Well, everything going well, we're filming in April, May.
"Then it takes a few months to edit. Then it takes a few months to put it in 160 languages. So we're hoping by the end of the year. That will be the final instalment. First time I've done a third series of anything. But it felt right, I fell in love with the characters, and this should be it.
"I'm too fat and old. That's enough. It's all I can manage."
Once the comedian – who has also written and starred in The Office and Extras – has finished with After Life, he has three other projects to start making.
In December, he said that Netflix will have first dibs on these untitled projects.
He revealed: “I’ve got it down to three totally different ideas and Netflix has already bought it because I told them I want to end After Life now and so they said, ‘OK, we want the next thing’.
“We will just start with the next thing, same deal.
“But I don’t know which one I’m going to go for. I can’t even think about it yet.
“I have got the outline of three completely different sorts of sitcoms and shows.
"One of them is a sitcom. One is probably more sitcommy than anything I’ve ever done.
“I don’t know what to do because again it will be three years of my life and then you go, ‘Oh, I wish I did the other thing’.”
