One of my recent favorite series is the dysfunctional coming-of-age, black comedy that is "The End of the F***ing World", and today I'm excited to share the news that the series has been renewed for a second f***ing season by the folks at Netflix!
"James (Black Mirror‘s Alex Lawther) is a troubled teen — a loner by choice with psychopathic tendencies. He’s spent much of his adolescence trying to feel something – anything, really — but has thus far come up short. After tiring of killing woodland creatures, he decides it’s time to graduate to murdering an actual human being. That’s where Alyssa (Penny Dreadful‘s Jessica Barden) comes in. She’s the new girl at school, a foul-mouthed rebel with a messed-up home life.
Thinking she can fall in love with James, Alyssa convinces him that they should leave everything behind and embark on a road trip. Little does she know he intends to make her his prey."
Writer Charlie Covell returns for season two. The series is based on the award-winning comic by Charles Forsman.
Season two will premiere worldwide on Netflix and on Channel 4 in the UK. The announcement tweet can be viewed below.
