Another immensely popular show will be returning to our screens very soon, with End of the F***ing World season two confirmed for a November release.
The welcome news was confirmed during an ad break between Hollyoaks, with season two hitting our screens on November 4.
For anyone who somehow hasn’t yet seen the first season, here’s the official synopsis: “James is a 17-year-old who believes he is a psychopath. He kills animals as a hobby, but grows bored of the practice. He decides he wants to try killing a human. He settles on Alyssa, a mouthy, rebellious 17-year-old classmate with issues of her own. She proposes they run away together, hoping for an adventure away from her turbulent home-life, and James agrees with the intention of finding an opportunity to kill her. They embark on a road trip across England, and begin to develop a relationship after a series of mishaps.”
The first season ended on something of a cliffhanger for James and Alyssa, now fans may finally get some answers.
The show’s creator Jonathan Entwistle told Thrillist in January 2018 that he was exploring ways in which they could “continue the tone of the show.”
He explained: “We’re looking at what the people who loved the show are saying, to see how we can unpack that and how we could continue the tone of the show. Because I think that is so crucial.
“For me, it’s about James and Alyssa – and I think that’s what people have connected with. I think a season two would have to involve James and Alyssa somehow.
“I just love the world of them out there on the road, doing something in a weird world. So for me, any story that we expand keeps them out there somewhere.”
Speaking to Digital Spy, Channel 4’s content boss Ian Katz said the new series will air on their station first and won’t land on Netflix – in the UK at least – for another year.
He 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.”
End of the F***ing World returns November 4.
