Extras Ending After Two Seasons


Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant have ruled out a third season of cult British comedy hit “Extras.”

The writer-performers, who also created “The Office,” will end “Extras” with a one-off special as they did with “The Office.”

“We don’t have a date or any details about the cast yet,” a spokeswoman for Gervais said, adding that the idea was in its “very, very early” stages. However, the pair “will, at some point, sit down together and write it,” she said.

“Extras” follows the exploits of comic actor Andy Millman and his haphazard agent, Darren Lamb. HBO airs it in the U.S.
