The End of the F***ing World
After an immensely successful first season, it comes as no surprise fans are clamoring for more. The question is when though!? So here is what you need to know about season 2. Alyssa the rebellious teenager proposes they run away together, hoping to get to find adventure in her mundane life. James agrees to hope to find an opportunity to kill her along the way.

One of Netflix's finest original series is coming back in just a few weeks' time. Netflix had already pegged a November release for season two, and now it's confirmed the exact return date. UK viewers will again be able to watch it on Channel 4 and All 4 , a day before it premieres on Netflix elsewhere.

But the latter lesson is made far more forcefully in the show, which is much more pessimistic and bloody. The cops: Eunice Noon and Teri Donoghue, the police officers who go after James and Alyssa, are a pure invention of the show and have no presence in the comic. Same goes for Eddie Onslow, the cop who tries to help James when he turns himself in. The dead cat: In the early stages of both stories, we learn that James killed a cat as a youth.
It became an instant hit for the streaming service, but with only eight, short episodes, and a shocking finale that cuts to black before you find out James' fate, questions surrounding a second season arose almost instantly. While some fans argued that a new season shouldn't happen, given that Season 1 ends similarly to the Charles S. Forsman graphic novel it's based on, many others just want more of these incredibly angsty, twisted teens. So what's the status? Here's a rundown of everything we know about what's up with Season 2 so far. They announced the news by posting the official poster to Twitter, showing Jessica Barden's Alyssa looking somber in a wedding dress, sitting in a diner across from an urn. While we don't want to speculate the contents of the urn, there's no denying it alludes to the fact that it's still unclear whether Alex Lawther's character James survived at the end of Season 1.
