Extras done after two seasons

Ricky Gervais & Stephen MerchantIt's two and out. Ricky Gervais says the upcoming season of Extras will be the last one. At least he feels that way "at the moment," he told the Britain's Sun newspaper [via zap2it.com]. As they did with the original version of The Office, Gervais and writing/producing partner Stephen Merchant say they don't want the show to wear out its welcome, a notion that occurs to most American sitcom producers much later than twelve episodes -- more like 120, say.
