That, according to Charlie Covell, who adapted it for the screen from Charles Forsman"s graphic novel of the same name, stems from one key factor.

"I can"t take credit for Alyssa & James" popularity as they"re Chuck"s creation," she told The i. "There"s something about the disparity between the image they project và who they actually are that makes them recognisable to lớn the audience – we can see them as two very damaged teenagers who just want to connect & we identify with that.

"I feel it especially with Alyssa. I wish I had been that ballsy & headsvào & had the ability lớn be rude và not care."

But despite its staggering success, some viewers felt that the series shouldn"t return for round two.

There is always scope for continuation – stories may stop, but they don"t have lớn end – & while the first chapter could easily have sầu remained as a standalone, the decision was made to bring it back.

"In all truth, we just thought about it as a single thing," writer Charlie Covell told Digital Spy. "Obviously, we always think about how you continue something, but I think the way we talked about the second season is: if the first season is about running away, then the second season is about coming baông chồng và having khổng lồ deal with stuff.

"So it"s that transition from being a teenager into lớn kind of adulthood. It sounds a bit pretentious, but I think it"s more like a response lớn what happens in season one, rather than it just being another season where they kind of do crazy shit. Because I feel if you just reset characters và let them bởi vì the same thing again – I don"t think that"s right for the story."

She added: "At some point, you"re lượt thích, "F**k, I"ve got khổng lồ go trang chủ. I"ve got lớn sort my life out. I can"t keep running".

"Obviously an ending is an ending. If you kết thúc it at a wedding, that"s the end – but then there"s obviously after the wedding, the divorce, the children, whatever. You"ve sầu got all those possibilities.

"I think an over is where you just stop a story. If you continue it on, then that ending becomes the beginning of something else."

Here"s what was cut from End of the F***ing World

Alex Lawther (James), whose involvement was kept secret until the kết thúc of episode two, also felt that season two was a necessity.

"Season one is almost lượt thích a big question in itself," he told Digital Spy. "And as soon as Charlie said we"re going to look into lớn the fallout of season one & the consequences of what are highly traumatic events in these young people"s lives... Yeah, that all made sense.

"So it was about answering that particular question of: what happens next? When all of these things happen, what are you left with?"

Chatting to lớn NME about the moment he was told that he"d be needed for season two, Lawther said: "I was worried that James would be a ghost or in flashbacks, lượt thích in A Christmas Carol."

And Jessy Barden was game for season two.

"If people enjoy something, you know, why wouldn"t you want to vị it again?" she told Digital Spy.

"The series is still about the same two people. It really is still about the two people that people responded to before. It"s not lượt thích they"re completely different people in any way. In some ways, they are. They"re still very complex."

And it helped that Forsman "really liked it", Covell told The i.

"That made me more relaxed about writing it," she added.

At the premiere for season two, Covell, who is currently working on Kaos, a brvà new show for Netflix that "puts a modern twist on Greek và Roman mythology", didn"t sound hopeful about bringing it back.

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

But chatting to lớn Digital Spy bachồng in May 2019, she didn"t rule it out: "I don"t think you should keep on going with something beyond its natural life.

"We"ve met them as old teenagers, and we"re now taking them into lớn adulthood, and I"m not sure – I don"t know if it"s right to see more. I don"t know. We"ll have lớn see. Obviously never say never, but I think maybe sometimes it"s good lớn get out."

A voice interjected: "We had a good idea the other day though, so I wouldn"t say never. But anyway…"

Covell added: "We could bởi vì it like Boyhood."

"Yeah!" said Barden. "That"s what I think we should actually do."

"Could we afford you guys?" joked Covell.

Barden replied: "I"ve sầu probably got another year coasting off this, và then I"m lượt thích probably going baông chồng lớn being lượt thích, "Oh my God, why am I an actress? Another year at best.""

But at the Virgin Media BAFTA TV Awards baông xã in July, Covell didn"t sound hopeful when asked about its future: "I have a feeling probably not.

"I feel with shows like that is probably better khổng lồ leave it when it is at its height (it picked up two awards for Best Drama Series & Best Supporting Actress for Naomày Ackie). We all feel incredibly proud that we made that second season as successful as the first.

"Obviously you can never say never, but I think it"s good lớn quit while you"re ahead và I"m really pleased where we left them, and I think that"s it I"m afraid."

If we did get a season three (we"ll never let go), it"s unclear what the time frame would be – season one landed in October 2017, and then there was that huge wait for the second chapter (November 2019) – so your guess really is as good as ours.

There"s also Covid khổng lồ contkết thúc with, which has made filming tricker than it"s ever been.

The End of the F***ing World season 3 cast: Who"s in it?

The show couldn"t exist without Alyssa and James, so both Barden and Lawther would need to be on board for future episodes.

"It just wouldn"t work ," Barden said (via the Guardian). "The show is Alyssa & James together, you know – that"s what it is."

The pair told NME that they"d love sầu khổng lồ work together again, either on TEOTFW or another project (we hope it"s both!).

"I really wanmãng cầu play a female Joker," said Barden. "I wanna play a psychopath."

Lawther added: "I could play Harley Quinn & you can play the Joker."

Getting the gang baông xã together could be tricky though – the duo are in demvà following the show"s international success, and are both currently focusing on their own projects.


Initially, Lawther was reticent to commit to lớn TEOTFW.

"Initially, I thought was about a young man being violent towards a young woman, & I thought: "I"m not really that interested because there"s enough of that around,"" he told the Guardian.

But he didn"t take any convincing after digging a little deeper.

"But I realised that James becomes something else. It"s not about his violence towards Alyssa, it"s about hyên ổn understanding how he feels và working out that actually he"s not a psychopath, he"s just very, very, very sad."

We"d also expect Alyssa"s mum Gwen (Christine Bottomley) khổng lồ feature.

There"s also a possibility we could see James" dead mum (Kelly Harrison) và James" dead dad Phil (Steve sầu Oram) in flashbacks.
