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.

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.

[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.

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...

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

    I think this season wasn't as good as the first one but it was still very enjoyable. The story wasn't actually as bad as I thaught it would be. This season keeps almost all good qualities about the first season - very well shot, surprising, a bit of action etc. Netflix really did save themselves by not going with the ending that was in the comic to make another season. All in all still a great series and I am hoping for a season three but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

    Los dos actores protagonistas hacen que la serie funcione.

    I think this series has a binge-worthy quality because of how it is made up of bite-sized episodes that are easy to get through. The show has a delightfully strange premise that definitely felt unique. I remember watching the first season when this show was trending initially and just liked it okay. I think its an unpopular opinion but I quite liked the second season of this series more. I thought the story was more involving and the characters were given more room to grow. Overall, if you need a quick watch that's equal parts dark, romantic, and even funny, this is a solid choice.

    Loved the season 2 ❤

    I enjoyed this series so much!!! It was able to take such heavy tension and turn it on it's head and who knew that such a dark premise would cause so much laughter!

    This is one of the best shows I have ever watched. The plot is GREAT from beginning to end. You get the exhilaration at the end of each episode and you will just keep wanting more and more. This is VERY well written and everything is very clear. The film is very beautiful as well, the tone and mood of each scene really draws attention to the plot and the characters. I have to say, Alex Lawther's performance in this show was excellent! His acting really showed the depth and emotion this story has. He brought attention to every little detail and I don't think anyone could ever play this role as brilliant and astonishing as this fellow actor did. As well as Alex, Jessica Barden was also outstanding. The way she portrayed this role was perfect. The way these two characters (Alex and Jessica) connected was amazing. I could see the feelings they had towards each other and no other actors could have a connection as great as these two do. Also, to Naomi Ackie for portraying Bonnie very perfectly. Amazing show, very brilliant.

    The second season is just an intent to extend a good first season, but the plot just don´t have any sense.
  • May 30, 2020
    Even though they've changed the rithm in the second season it was done really well as we could see a more in-depth characters development. The songs, visual and perspective are amazingly good in this drama -comedy with a lot of tension which is great as well.

    S1 was too good but for S2 I was expecting something tragic but S2 was slow and without any destination
  • May 22, 2020
    The second season was a huge let-down. I really enjoyed the first one, but after watching this one I'm pretty (very extremely) certain that I won't be tuning in for any future episodes to come. Very disappointing.
