'Life's Too Short' to end HBO run with special

Ricky Gervais's series Life’s Too Short will return to HBO for a special series finale episode. 



The show, co-created with Stephen Merchant, stars Warwick Davis as a fictionalized version of himself in the entertainment business. 

Gervais and Merchant discussed the possibility of a special last year, with Merchant admitting that he was too exhausted to consider a full second season of Life’s Too Short.

Deadline reports that HBO, which aired the seven-episode first season of the series in February 2012, has committed to a new final episode that will wrap up the story. 

The special will reportedly air later in the year. 

Meanwhile, Merchant is currently developing a new comedy series for HBO called Hello Ladies.
