Netflix viewers will see a longer finale of controversial comedy 'Derek' than the edit aired on Channel 4, Ricky Gervais has revealed.

The series creator broke the news on his blog.

"As you may have heard I wrapped up 'Derek' in the same way as 'The Office' and 'Extras' after two series and a special," he wrote.

"Even though the UK got it first with its airing on Channel 4, the good news for Netflix viewers around the world is that you will get a longer version, which in my opinion is even better."

He added that he would know the launch date "very soon".

The finale – spoiler alert! – saw Hannah and Tom finally get married, while Kev was forced to give up alcohol.

'Derek' picked up more than its fair share of critical brickbats when it first aired, but has since won critics round with its mixture of pathos, smut and heart-warming moments.
