'The End Of The F***ing World' season two trailer has dropped
After wowing audiences with its fairly miserable premise and generally nihilistic attitude, Channel 4’s smash hit series “The End Of The F***ing World” is finally returning to the small screen.
Now, two years after Alyssa and James were left ambiguously stranded on a dreary British beach, fans can finally get the answers they’ve been craving. Grab the popcorn and prepare to be depressed - weeknight telly is about to be awesome again.
Check out the brand new trailer below:
The first series saw two runaway teens, each with a personality that could generously be described as “eccentric”, embark upon an orthodox road trip across England. During their travels, they encounter drug dealers, serial killers, and the law, in a series of vignettes that add up to a seriously wild ride. It’s definitely not for kids, but it’s undoubtedly good fun.
After series one ended somewhat ambiguously, fans have been eagerly theorizing as to what befell the young couple. These theories have featured heavily in promotion for the new series, with several trailers hinting at ideas as implausible as alien abduction and cloning. However, any unanswered questions will be resolved on November 4, when series two finally drops.
Unlike the previous series, episodes will be released in batches of two every night between the 4th and the 7th of November on Channel 4 at 22:00. The show will initially not be available on popular streaming service Netflix at the request of the broadcaster.
In an interview with Digital Spy, Channel 4 content boss Ian Katz said:
"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."
It might be frustrating for anyone with a Netflix subscription, but the fact that the show is back at all is surely a relief.
