Netflix Renews A Show Some Thought Didn't Need A Second Season

"We'll be f***ing back."


One of the best new shows on Netflix last year was The End of the F**king World, a very dark comedy about involving troubled teenagers who go on the run after things go very badly at home, has been renewed for a second season. The first season had eight episodes, which were written in part by Charlie Covell based on the comic series b y Charles Forsman.

Season 1 ended in dramatic, ambiguous fashion that many watchers believed was a satisfying conclusion. It felt like a show that did not need a Season 2. But it's getting one.

The Season 2 announcement trailer references the end of Season 1, so maybe don't click the video below if you don't want to be spoiled. There is no word yet on when Season 2 will premiere, but it'll be available on Netflix around the world except in the UK. It will premiere on Channel 4 in the UK.

The End of the F**king World Season 1 starred Alex Lawther (Black Mirror) and Jessica Barden (Penny Dreadful) as the teenagers, James and Alyssa, at the center of the story, though there is no word on if Season 2 will bring them back or what other new characters might get introduced.

Covell told Collider, before the renewal order, that a potential Season 2 would "have to" focus on James and Alyssa. "I just love the world of them out there on the road, doing something in a weird world. So for me, any story that we expand keeps them out there somewhere," he said.

The End of the F**king World Season 1 also starred Wunmi Mosaku (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) and Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones).
