Writer and Comedian Ricky Gervais will make a final Christmas special episode of the HBO series hit "Extras" before ending the show, according to reports. <P></P> <P>The Emmy-winning Berkshire native and creator of "The Office" is determined not to risk the failure of another season, and would rather move onto new projects. </P> <P>A source tells The Sun, "There had been reports that Ricky was going to go ahead with a third series of Extras. But he is firmly of the opinion that third series are rarely a success and has decided to quit while he’s ahead. When he said goodbye to The Office with a two-part Christmas special, it was a smash hit both in the ratings and critically, so he’s decided to do that again. He’s loved making the series and there are tons more A-list stars who want to appear. But Ricky has lots of other things he wants to do and feels this is the right timing."</P>Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
