'The End of the F***ing World' season 2 will air in November
There's no doubt that 'The End of the F***ing World', made by British network Channel 4, was a surprise hit for Netflix back in 2018, surprising everyone with its bizarre premise and intriguing characters. The first season ended on a huge cliffhanger, and since then fans have been desperately clamouring to find out what happens next.
The first season can be best described as a British teen rom-com with a massive dollop of black comedy; about surly teenage girl called Alyssa who falls for a boy called James, a borderline psychopath. Together, they run away and get into misadventures, all while James' past seems ready to catch up with them.
Watch the trailer for season one of 'The End of the F***ing World' below:
Netflix and Channel 4 have been pretty tight-lipped about what we can expect from the second series, which has been pretty frustrating for those fans who are all-too-eager for any hints or details.
However, in a shock announcement, Channel 4 has now revealed that the second series of the show will air in November of 2019, and will then subsequently be available to stream on Netflix.
The new season is allegedly going to be set two years later, and Channel 4 have released a few teaser pictures of the characters following the time skip, showing Alyssa wearing a diner uniform and a new character called Bonnie played by Naomi Ackie.
Yet James himself, played memorably by Black Mirror and Ghost Stories actor Alex Lawther, is nowhere to be seen - and his participation in the second series has not yet been confirmed.
Check out this short teaser for 'The End of the F***ing World' season two:
The show is actually based on a comic-book miniseries by Charles Forsman, and was out on Channel 4 for a year before being a hit with viewers on the streaming platform a year later.
Commenting on the phenomenon in a recent interview with Deadline, Channel 4 boss Ian Katz stated: "Next time we’ll run the whole series on the channel. Then there will be a conventional hold back of more than a year before people see it on Netflix. It really bugs me that people think that show is a Netflix show; I really want to reclaim ownership of it – it’s absolutely a Channel 4 show."
Personally, I can't wait to check out season two when it comes out - I'm sure it will be great!
