Phil Clarke, Channel 4's Head of Comedy said: "I am delighted that Derek is coming back for a second run on Channel 4. It's an original comic vision, brave, funny and touching, with a star performance its heart. It has already garnered a loyal following."
Ricky Gervais said: "Derek is probably my favourite thing of everything I've done, so I can't wait to start thinking up some new adventures for the gang."
