After The End of the F***ing World exploded back onto our screens fans may have been left begging for more.
However anyone hoping for a third instalment of the series look set to bitterly disappointed.
Charlie Covell, who created the show based on the graphic novel of the same name by Charles Forsman, shot down any hopes about its future.
Speaking to the Radio Times, she 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.”
Covell also admitted that she felt a newfound pressure surrounding the second season.
“Absolutely. Totally, I think there’s a big part of you that’s worried about what people think – but I worry and then I think, ‘My God, the fact that I’m worried about fans’ reaction to a show is a very nice problem to have… ‘
“There’s pressure, but there’s pressure because people like something that we all did together.”
The writer also went on to discuss the importance of sticking to her guns when it came to creating the new episodes.
“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 adds. “I think you have to work out what’s right for the characters and the story— I sound like such a d*** saying that but I think you can’t, you’re not doing fan fiction.”
Perhaps it’s all for the best?
