Starring Ricky Gervais...
Netflix has brought online a trailer for the upcoming second season of its original series Derek. The series is written, directed, produced by and stars Ricky Gervais and will premiere its six-episode sophomore run on May 30th on the service.
The series centers around Derek Noakes (Gervais), a tender, innocent man whose love for his job at a retirement home shines through. Derek cares deeply for the home's residents, because they are kind and funny and tell him stories of what life used to be like. Working alongside Derek is Dougie (Karl Pilkington), his landlord who is one of life's unlucky individuals; Kev (David Earl), a loveable train wreck; and Hannah (Kerry Godliman), a care worker in the home and Derek's best friend. She is smart, witty and hardworking, but unlucky in love, and, like Derek, always puts other people first.
In the second season, Derek's kindness has truly extended to those around him as he forges new friendships. The retirement home's residents and employees have built a familial community and Derek's positive outlook and good natured spirit allows them to persevere through the difficult times that they sometimes face.
