The End of The F***ing World on Netflix is a British television series based on the comic book series by Charles Forsman. It revolves around two 17-year old misfits, Alyssa (Jessica Barden) and James (Alex Lawther) who form an unlikely friendship. Together they venture out into a world of adventure and darkness. The show is famous for its unique format and story-telling. Recently, The End of The F***ing World Season 2 came out and we are still trying to digest it.

The troubled teens don’t represent your average teen-drama. They reflect deeper, more complex ranges in personality that stem from childhood, a parent’s suicide or second marriage, neglect, and abuse.

The way they express themselves through their inner monologues are spoken out is what makes the show such a masterpiece. The narration combined with beautiful, vivid cinematography makes it a worthy binge-watch. What truly sets the show apart is how snappy and quickly paced it is. You don’t feel impatient or bored waiting for the climax, every single episode itself IS a new climax.

‘The End Of The F***ing World’ Season 1 Recap:

The dark comedy is about finding oneself in a world with unlimited possibilities. James believes that he feels nothing. Whereas, Alyssa (Barden)  feels too much and reacts too much.

In simple words, it’s a funny yet deep series with love, anger, numbness, sadness, and every spectrum of the emotion. When the two meet, they have no idea how their emotions will flare up for each other as they set out on an adventure to nowhere. They run away from their homes, with a stolen car and limited resources.

As the story progresses, they end up murdering a pedophile and facing the police as well. The action and thriller portion of the Netflix show makes it breathtaking, fun, disturbing and crazy.

On the other hand, Alyssa (Jessica Barden) and James (Lawther) have a budding romance. This is the sweetest love story. It’s sad, gentle, heartfelt and amazingly-written. It shows how emotions & vulnerability develop in someone who thinks they feel nothing.

The season ended on a cliff-hanger, with the two getting caught by the police. Did James get shot by the police? Is he dead? What happens to Alyssa next?

Season 2 of ‘The End Of The F***ing World’

The second season premiered on November 4 and wrapped up the second part of the series.

Jessica Barden and Alex Lawther have done justice to their characters, becoming even more likable this time. The End Of The F***ing World Season 2 shows a more mature turn in the character’s personalities. The teens have clearly grown up and developed. Their love grows too and gets more complex.

The main highlight of the season is the entrance of a new character, Bonnie, played by Naomi Ackie. She gets an episode all to herself as well to explain her intense, vengeful borderline psychopathic character.

She, in fact, sets the plot in motion when she sets out to take important revenge from Alyssa and James. Without giving any more spoilers, this season gets deeper, maturer, and explores emotions even more deeply. At the same time, it is action-packed and still thrilling. The comedy is even more refreshing this time.

Is there a Season 3?

At the premiere for the second season, show creator Charlie Covell did not express any hope regarding another season.

“I don’t think you’re going to get another series,” she told the press. “I think sometimes it’s good to just stop things and I hope when you see the end you’ll agree.”

“I think you can push things but this feels like an actual end. Sorry.”

Don’t worry fans. It is still possible that there will be a Season 3. The show creator also said that a possible plot and idea is being discussed and ‘if’ it works out, we can watch more of Alyssa and James’ adventures.

We’re still waiting for an official announcement of The End Of The F***ing World Season 3.
