The 58 year-old actor, writer, producer and comedian, will create a new scripted series and stand-up comedy specials for the giant streaming platform. 

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter Gervais said: "I was planning to retire soon and just wander around the house drunk until I die, but I’ve grown a bit tired of doing that during the lockdown and also Netflix made me an offer I couldn’t refuse."
