With weddings, babies, and cheese on toast in the air, Derek and his cohorts face the critical realities of life in and out of the nursing home.Take a look at a sneak peak of the one-hour special of Derek, Ricky Gervais' bittersweet comedy drama about a group of outsiders living on society's margins. The Derek Special will become available exclusively to Netflix members in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Nordics and Benelux on Friday, April 3 at 12:01am PT. Seasons 1 and 2 of Derek are currently streaming.
Derek, for which Gervais was nominated for an Emmy® for Outstanding Actor and a Golden Globe® for Best Actor In A Comedy Series for his leading role, centers around Derek Noakes (Ricky 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. Among those in his life are Kev (David Earl), a lovable train wreck who lives with Derek and spends most of his time lazing around the home; and Hannah (Kerry Godliman), a care worker in the home and Derek's best friend. She is smart, witty and hard-working, and, like Derek, always puts other people first.
In the Derek Special, Tom (Brett Goldstein) has a new job. This allows him to spend more time with Hannah. Will this allow their relationship to flourish? Derek is upset with Hannah for upsetting Kevin, who goes missing, whilst Vicky takes on more responsibilities. We have the first trailer and a poster for the Derek Special.
