The End of the F***ing World

Critics Consensus

What The End of the F***ing World's second season lacks in urgency it makes up for in character development, diving deep into the darkest creases of the leading pair's memories to emerge a darkly funny meditation on love and trauma.

Critic Reviews for The End of the F***ing World Season 2

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (11)

It has the same gonzo tone and darkly funny writing.

Nov 22, 2019 | Full Review…

[Jessica] Barden and [Alex] Lawther excel; their characters perfectly toeing the line between being haunted by their pasts - both are subsequently more awkward and angry around one another - and confused teenage chemistry.

Nov 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Forcing more drama onto them after they've left only feels forced. It's a lose-lose scenario, and while I'll always contend there's a good way to keep telling many stories, this isn't it.

The second season... is a bummer because it's not as good as the first season, but more detrimentally, it undoes the perfection that is the first season. Other than that, though, it's a moderately entertaining three hours.

Nov 26, 2019 | Full Review…

A fine show, shot through with smart decisions, pitch-perfect performances and moments of real comic brilliance.

Nov 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Albeit the second (and most likely final) season of The End of the F***ing World isn't as impactful or satisfying as its daring predecessor, it's a harmless epilogue that sketches a creamy outcome for these perturbed characters.

Nov 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Teen noir with savage class. Kids will love it.

Nov 11, 2019 | Full Review…

These kids win my heart and make me guffaw. Please, BBC/Netflix, don't make a third season. I want to walk away and always remember Alyssa and James in their awful, tentative, f***ed-up glory.

Nov 15, 2019 | Full Review…

How do you describe a television show that's unlike any other? To oversimplify it, "The End of the F***ing World," is a pitch-black comedy about a pair of troubled 17-year-olds who meet and fall in love in a very unconventional way.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

This second season is darker, more violent, more bloody and more explicit than the first one, but it also has more humor. [Full review in Spanish]

Nov 13, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Totally disappointing. [Full review in Spanish]

Nov 11, 2019 | Full Review…

...an epilogue that ends not far from where it began and doesn't connect as well as the original story. It is, however, honest about the gas pockets we can hit while mining past trauma as we attempt to better understand ourselves and connect...

Audience Reviews for The End of the F***ing World: Season 2

  • 14h ago
    Season 2 - surprisingly as brilliant as season 1
  • Jan 09, 2020
    This show is bleak and honest.
  • Jan 08, 2020
    Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden continue to shine and give perfect performances again. New major character Naomi Ackie as Bonnie is okay nothing too memorable but she plays a weird girl very well. Not anywhere near as good as the first season but Season 2 does its job as a very entertaining and fun to watch season.
  • Jan 08, 2020
    The story felt a bit flat at first- Bonnie is very unlikable which makes the season hard to watch at the start. Although, quickly the story intensifies and becomes addictive. Alyssa and James whole thing is heartbreaking yet exciting to watch. The season of this show might be one of the best pieces of television history, due to the sheer perfection of its ending. Definitely worth watching and quite binge worthy.
  • Jan 07, 2020
    Great show, starts weirdly but eventually gets you attached to the characters and it impressed me with how it shows them growing mentally and emotionally from one episode to another.
  • Jan 06, 2020
    By not letting the things end after season one, the "continuing" story becomes a little less original and daring; however, the two main characters are still lovably offbeat and and the story turns are not predictable. There is a third main character this season which at first made me go, "How does this girl and her story fit it?" until she did, super brilliantly. I don't know who penned this story/screenplay but unlike a lot of TV stuff, this seems to be written by a real storyteller. I really hope there is not a season 3. Please don't milk it. The story of James and Alyssa has been told.
  • Jan 05, 2020
    End of the F***ing World is not as good as Season 1 but you do get t know the characters better. A season 3 would be good.
  • Jan 03, 2020
    Wot? Wot? Wot? Take a drink every time someone says "WOT"?
  • Dec 31, 2019
    Really enjoyed it. It was simple short and cute. The fact that the main characters are so out of this world and relatable at the same time, makes it very entertaining.
  • Dec 29, 2019
    Controversially enough, I liked this season much more than the first. I liked the character banter more and the tone was more consistent throughout, though I can understand some of the problems had with pacing, I was entertained the whole way through
