The first season of The End of the F***ing World was a huge hit with both the general public and the general public’s wife.
Charlie Covell, who adapted the film from Charles Forsman’s graphic novel of the same name, believes that this is due to one important point. “There’s a lot of stuff going on,” he says.
“I can’t take credit for Alyssa and James‘ fame because they were created by Chuck,” she said in an interview with The i. “The audience recognizes them because of the contrast between the image they present and who they really are – we can see them as two extremely broken kids who just want to connect, and we can sympathize with them because of that.
“It’s especially noticeable with Alyssa. I wish I had been so brave and self-assured, as well as have the ability to be impolite and not care.”
In spite of the series’ enormous popularity, several viewers felt that it should not be renewed for a second season, let alone for a third.
Storylines may and can be continued indefinitely – they may come to an end, but they are not necessarily finished – and while the first chapter might have easily been left as a standalone, the decision was made to bring it back.
Writer Charlie Covell told Digital Spy, “In all honesty, we basically thought about it as a single entity.” “It goes without saying that we always consider how to go with a project, but I believe that we discussed the second season in the following way: if the first season is about running away, the second season is about returning and dealing with the consequences of your actions.
“So it’s about making the shift from being a teenager to a more mature stage of life. Despite the fact that it seems a little arrogant, I believe it is more of a reaction to what happened in season one than simply another season in which they do insane things.
Because I believe that just resetting people and allowing them to repeat the same actions will be detrimental to the story’s progression.”
She went on to say: “You reach a point where you think to yourself, ‘F**k, I’ve got to go home.’ I’m going to have to get my life in order. I’m not able to keep going.’
“It goes without saying that a conclusion is a conclusion. A wedding is considered to be the culmination of the relationship – yet there is obviously life after the wedding, such as a divorce or children to consider. You have a plethora of options at your disposal.
“A tale’s end, in my opinion, is simply the point at which the story comes to an end. If you keep going, that point where it ends becomes the beginning of something new entirely.”
The End of the F World Season 3: Release Date
Covell, who is presently working on Kaos, a fresh new Netflix show that “puts a modern twist on Greek and Roman mythology,” didn’t sound optimistic about bringing it back during the season two premiere.
She informed the press, “I don’t think you’re going to get another season.” “I believe it is occasionally beneficial to simply stop things, and I hope you will agree after you have seen the final product.
But, in a May 2019 interview with Digital Spy, she didn’t rule it out: “I don’t believe you should continue with something that has outlived its usefulness.
“We’ve known them since they were teenagers, and now we’re bringing them into adulthood, and I’m not sure if it’s appropriate to see them any further. I’m not sure. We’ll have to wait and see. Never say never, but I believe it is occasionally beneficial to get away.”
Suddenly, a voice spoke up: “But we had a great suggestion the other day, so I wouldn’t rule it out. But, whatever…”
Barden responded, ” “I’m probably going to be like, ‘Oh my God, why am I an actress?’ for another year, and then I’m probably going to be like, ‘Oh my God, why am I an actress?’ ‘At most, another year.'”
However, when asked about the future of the show at the Virgin Media BAFTA TV Awards in July, Covell sounded pessimistic: “I have a feeling it won’t be the case.
“I believe it is best to leave shows like that when they are at their peak (it picked up two awards for Best Drama Series and Best Supporting Actress for Naomi Ackie). We’re all ecstatic that the second season was just as successful as the first.
“Obviously, nothing is ever certain, but I think it’s better to leave when you’re ahead, and I’m extremely delighted with where we left them, so I’m afraid that’s it.”
If we do obtain a season three (we won’t let go), it’s unknown when it’ll be released — season one premiered in October 2017, followed by a long delay for the second chapter (November 2019), so your estimate is as good as ours. Especially because the wait for season three would undoubtedly be considerably longer.
The End of the F World Season 3: Cast
Because the show wouldn’t be possible without Alyssa and James, future episodes would require both Barden and Lawther’s participation.
“Without both of us, it just wouldn’t work,” Barden remarked (via the Guardian). “You know, the show is Alyssa and James together — that’s it.”
Getting the gang back together could be difficult, as the duo is in high demand as a result of the show’s international success, and they are both working on their own projects at the moment.
“At first, I mistook [the show] for a young man being violent with a young woman, and I thought to myself, ‘I’m not really that interested since there’s enough of that around,'” he told the Guardian.
However, after delving a little deeper, he refused to be persuaded.
“But I noticed that James transforms into something different. It’s not about his violence toward Alyssa; it’s about him realizing how he feels and realizing that he isn’t a psychopath, but rather a very, very unhappy person.”
Gwen (Christine Bottomley), Alyssa’s mother, is also expected to appear.
There’s also a chance we’ll see flashbacks of James’ dead mother (Kelly Harrison) and dead father Phil (Steve Oram).
Bonnie’s role in the tale appears to be over, hence Naomi Ackie is unlikely to return in future episodes. But, since everything is up in the air right now, you never know.
