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 (35) | Top Critics (12)

It has the same gonzo tone and darkly funny writing.

Nov 22, 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.

Nov 5, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

The End of the ****ing World season 2 predictably doesn't have the same manic energy or sense of revelation as the first go-around, but it retains the pitch-black nihilism and expert situational humor - it might even be funnier

Nov 3, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

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…

...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...

Nov 22, 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]

Teen noir with savage class. Kids will love it.

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

  • Apr 18, 2021
    TEOTFW season 2 leaves its subversive element behind to make more space diving deep into character development and take viewers on a more sorrow, dark and emotional roller coaster and finish with a profound reflection of, again, love and trauma.
  • Apr 03, 2021
    Cute, funny, sweet, twisted, weird. I love the 2 main characters and really liked the show
  • Apr 01, 2021

    An improvement on season 1 in some ways. The humour was still great, the plot was entertaining, and the cinematography and soundtrack were solid. The character additions were well done, and the acting was fantastic. However, Alyssa was arguably a bit too depressed.

    We have waited so many years for the second Season and now it's finally here! And we were not let down - too much. I really missed the characters with their strange personalities and all the crazy things they get up to. We got to meet a new character that was added to the mix, Bonnie. Bonnie was also another strange character which this series thrives off of. There is not a single person who is normal and it is bloody brilliant! As far as the plot goes it definitely is intriguing and kept me interested for the whole Season but I wanted a little more of something. I don't know what. I appreciate that there was only meant to be one Season to begin with and we are very blessed with a second one but I kinda wanted it to go on, even for a few more episodes. I wanted more of James' and Alyssa's relationship and where they decided to go with it in the end. But it left at a sort of half cliff hanger, half conclusion. But overall I'm absolutely thrilled that it is finally here and I could not recommend this enough to binge.

    Masterpiece, one of the best series with black humor.
  • Nov 07, 2020
    It's a masterpiece. Just watch it
  • Oct 18, 2020
    Once again this show delivered. Its just as amazing as the first season if not more.
  • Sep 28, 2020
    British dark comedy, three words that guarantee that you'll enjoy what you're watching. Based on Charles Forsman's comic book series James, a self-proclaimed psychopath, and Alyssa, the moody new girl at school, make a connection and embark on a road trip just for the sake of escaping the world they deeply dislike, followed by a series of mishaps. Only these nihilistic characters could make misanthropy somehow relatable and hilarious. Incredibly shocking and full of unexpected twists that make it truly fascinating.
