It’s not the end for renewed The End of the F***ing World


Turns out it’s not The End of the F***ing World — at least not for the critically-acclaimed dark dramedy, which is getting a second season on Netflix.

Following its award-nominated outing last fall, British dramedy The End of the F***ing World will be returning to Netflix for a second season, according to Deadline. The show, following two unusual teens on a road trip across England, was adapted from a graphic novel of the same name by Charles Forsman.

Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden star as 17-year-old classmates James and Alyssa who decide to leave everything behind and strike out on their own. Alyssa, a rebel with a cause, is seeking to escape her dull yet painful home life. James, meanwhile, has a distinct cause of his own.

A self-described psychopath James seizes the opportunity to accompany Alyssa on her adventure because he wants to kill her. However, as the two grow closer and their road trip takes an unexpected turn, James starts to rethink his intentions.

The series, a joint venture between Netflix and the UK’s Channel 4, is written by Charlie Covell. He will return for season two and take on the additional role of executive producer. Returning executive producers include Murray Ferguson, Ed Macdonald, Andy Baker, Dominic Buchanan and Jonathan Entwistle.

Entwistle also directed in season one, along with Lucy Tcherniak. As of now, it’s unclear if either of them will continue to serve in that capacity for season two.
