Netflix's 'The End of the F***ing World' to return for a second season
Following its huge success in season 1, James and Alyssa are coming back to prove that they can literally do anything.
Netflix has finally assured that this is not "The End of the F***ing World" and in spite of several speculations that a second season is not necessary, the critically acclaimed Emmy-nominated series is now returning for a second season. Netflix has released the first look of season 2 on its social media pages, and it seems this time the journey will be to the world's end.
Based on the award-winning graphic novel, adapted by acclaimed newcomer Charlie Covell, season 1 follows James, a self-proclaimed psychopath and Alyssa, a foul-mouthed rebel fed-up with her boring life. The two embark on a road trip to find a better life and escape the impending doom of adulthood.
As their chaotic journey unfolds, it becomes apparent that James and Alyssa have crossed a line and have no choice but to take it as far as they can. However, little does Alyssa know that James intends on killing her as the two embark on the road trip.
As Channel 4 and Netflix jointly announced on Tuesday, creator Charlie Covell has been retained to pen down the script for the second season, while the series continues to adapt from its source material- Chuck Forsman's mini-series 'The End Of The F*****g World' (TEOTFW).
Season 2 will be executive produced by Murray Ferguson, Ed Macdonald, Andy Baker, Charlie Covell, Dominic Buchanan, Jonathan Entwistle, and will be produced by Clerkenwell Films and Dominic Buchanan Productions. The show was critically praised for its first season which released on October last year and was nominated for an Emmy for Justin Brown's cinematography.
