    “The End Of The F***ing World” Is Officially Coming Back For A Second Season

    Channel 4 announced at the Edinburgh TV Festival that they have commissioned a second season of the show. No date has been announced for its release.

    The End of the F***ing World was one of the most unexpected and most beautiful dramas of 2017. It also had some of the best dialogue in any show, like this:

    Channel 4 / Netflix

    Starring Alex Lawther as James and Jessica Barden as Alyssa, TEOTFW is about a guy who assumes that he is a psychopath. You then follow him as he makes plans for his first kill.

    If you haven’t seen this show and you’ve been put off from watching because of this premise, may I just say please watch this drama. What unfolds, no spoilers, is an unexpectedly beautiful, tender story about growing up and never fitting in. There’s nothing else on television quite like it.

    Trust me. The show has sequences and moments that will leave you thinking for days.

    Season 1 also ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, with it being unclear what happened to Alyssa and James. For a while, there was a mood that this might be intentional and that there would not be a second season.

    However, today it was announced by Netflix and Channel 4 that TEOTFW is coming back for a second season. It will be written by Charlie Covell, who wrote Season 1, and will be based on the comic books written by Charles Forsman.


    So if you haven’t watched the series, please do so now. And if you have, remember this bit of dialogue to keep you hanging for the meantime.
