The British Dark Comedy TV series ‘The End of the F***ing World’ written by Charlie Covell, first premiered on 24th October, 2017. The show has received appreciation for its writing and execution. It is adapted from a mini-comics with the same name by Forsman which was published in 2013. The show revolves around James and Alyssa who are teenagers and portrayed as psychopaths in the series trying to live the life wildly showing their rebellious character running away from home. Their relationship turns into chaos as they embark on their journey with a lot of dark comedy.
Season 2 was released on 4th November, 2019 on Channel 4 and the story showed the growth in the characters set 2 years after the first season ended with the authorities shooting James but Season 2 brought the characters back. Season 2 showed the characters meeting. But, the final episode showed Alyssa planning to get married to someone else but after James shows up, she confesses her feelings for him and they run once again. The show has been loved by the fans but the writer has no plans on coming up with a new season. According to them, there is no limit to the storyline but following their adulthood would not be as adventurous and these two seasons can stand alone in itself.
Naomi Ackie hints at return of TEOTFW Return?
Season 2 wraps up perfectly and feels like an end for the creators. Even if a new season is planned, there is no plot and timeframe that it could be about. Getting the cast together for filming is going to be an issue as they have other projects and their schedules are really tight. Recently, after winning the BAFTA award for best-supporting actress, Naomi Ackie said that she definitely thinks fans will be wanting more from the series. She also added that it may not return as shows like this are better to leave at a high since the second season was a blockbuster just like the first one. She ended her speech saying that we should never say never. In conclusion, there might just be a slightest possibility for the return of the British black comedy series. So, nothing is clear as of now.
