Netflix and Channel 4 have released a first look at season 2 of their co-production “The End of The F***ing World” including new character Bonnie. Bonnie, played by Naomi Ackie (“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”), is an outsider with a troubled past and a mysterious connection to Alyssa. The series will arrive in November on Channel 4 in the UK and Netflix around the globe.
The UK Netflix release may be up to a year after it’s terrestrial airing based on previous comments by Channel 4’s Ian Katz who 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.”
Based on the award-winning series of comic books by Charles Forsman, THE END OF THE F***ING WORLD invites viewers into the dark and confusing lives of teen outsiders James (Alex Lawther – Black Mirror, The Imitation Game) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden – The Lobster, Ellen, Penny Dreadful) as they embark on a road trip to find Alyssa’s father, who left home when she was a child.
