Asked if the new season was definitely the last, he told the Headliners podcast: 'Well, I can not say. I can not say that about anything. "

He said "at the moment" he intends to be before adding about writing a fourth: 'It's tempting. And it makes no sense to end it, it makes absolutely no sense.

'It's the most popular it's ever been. You get paid more as the seasons go by. It makes no sense at all, other than I think it's the right decision artistically. '

Gervais admitted that money has affected him in the past, as he said it had been an important factor in persuading him to first host "boring" showbiz awards, even though he hates them and has never seen one on TV.

And he admitted that he had been influenced by prayers from therapists not to give Tony a tragic end after Tony had previously considered suicide but was stopped by his dog.

He said: 'A lot of people who are therapists, grief therapists and people who worked with suicide prevention and stuff like that, they told me that their clients, their patients, were really related to it, and one even said' please do not have he committed suicide ". And for the first time ever, I really took on an outside concern. '

But Gervais explained why he had approached the current third series with an early mindset of calling it the last.

He added: 'If you put it out there, then you try to stick to it. And the reason you decide in advance is that then you can burn all your bridges and put everything into it and do the best you can.

'You do not have to hold things back and think' oh, I may need that in series four or five '. You go all the way out there and make it the most roaring adventure you can.

"So for all those reasons, never say never, because you never know, but I'll say I'm 99% sure it's.
