'The End of the F***ing World' Season 3: Fans demand more of James, Alyssa and Bonnie, but Netflix series may not get another run

Well, as much as it guts us, we have to respect the creator’s choice and rest assured that we can always return to the first two brilliant seasons anytime on Netflix.


                            'The End of the F***ing World' Season 3: Fans demand more of James, Alyssa and Bonnie, but Netflix series may not get another run

Netflix’s ‘The End of the F***ing World’ has done the nearly impossible, by giving us a second season that is as compelling – if not more – than the first one. When Season 1 of the show had ended we had assumed the story of Alyssa (Jessica Barden) and James (Alex Lawther) is over, especially considering how the leads were seemingly shot to death.

If the show did come back, and James did somehow survive the shootout, then the show would not have done justice what we have come to love so far, we thought. However, the show did return, James did survive, and we did love the show all the more for it. The new addition, Bonnie (Naomi Ackie), who spent the entire season plotting the murder of James and Alyssa played a big part in this, definitely.

Now that the show has ended again, seemingly in a perfect way, in a way that cannot be topped, we know that the showrunners can outdo themselves again – come up with an ingenious plan to continue the story of Alyssa and James without selling out. The ‘The End of the F***ing World’ writers are certainly fit for the challenge but it seems like they may not be up for it.



 

In an interview with Radio Times, the show’s creator Charlie Covell said, “I think, for me, that’s it now. Yeah, that’s done. I think to try and eke more out would be wrong, I like where we’ve left it.” She went on to add: “Put it this way, if for some reason we hadn’t been allowed to do season two, I would have been really gutted. Which I think shows that it was the right thing to do – for me, anyway. And I think I like where we end it [in season two], and yeah, it feels right for the story. “But you never know, and you obviously you can’t write for what people want.”

She also said that while she is aware she comes across as a d*** for saying this but she has to “work out what’s right for the characters and the story” instead of catering to what the fans want, because “you’re not doing fan fiction.”

Well, as much as it guts us, we have to respect the creator’s choice and rest assured that we can always return to the first two brilliant seasons anytime on Netflix.
