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 (28) | Top Critics (9)

The result was bleak but dry, wry and hopelessly romantic, like Badlands relocated to Seventies suburbia. The series is stripped across the schedules for four nights, promising to surprise and beguile as much as the first.

[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.

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.

Altogether, it oozes "not for everyone"; although despite that, I think it might be.

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]

Totally disappointing. [Full review in Spanish]

Season 2 brings with it the same shock-value, stunning visuals, and sheer madness, with Alyssa (Jessica Barden) and James (Alex Lawther) back for another round of intense Bonnie and Clyde style drama.

Nov 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The End of the F***ing World is crafted and presented with gorgeous colour and detail, allowing you to soak up every part of this electrifying story.

Nov 11, 2019 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

The End of the F***ing World costumes help enhance the unease between James and Alyssa, a visual metaphor for how close they could be, and yet how different their respective outlooks are two years on.

Nov 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | 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…

While the second season doesn't exactly feel necessary, it's still fun to take another aimless ride with the show's resident weirdos and see where we end up.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Teen noir with savage class. Kids will love it.

    The second season wasn't as good as the first one but still bloody brilliant. Deffinatly worth the watch if you liked the first season.

    They shoved Bonnie down our throats the same way they threw Ani from 13 Reason's Why down our throats. Less we see of them, the better the season is. I cried when James and Alyssa reunited and I NEVER cry. Thank you.

    Very different in tone to the first series, but just as brilliant. It looks wonderful, and the acting is universally superb. Very few things ever manage to balance darkness with comedy as successfully as this series does.

    I loved season 1 and I enjoyed season two. The story was well written and interesting. I kept wanting to watch the next episode. The message was great too. The acting was fantastic as well. Everything they show has a point to it except one thing. Everything was great until the last episode. For no reason when Alyssa was on the bus and there was a man "man spreading" (*eye roll*) and he said the stereotypical "you should smile more." That pulled me out so bad... It was so cliche and felt unneeded. Like some exec told them to add it in to pander to a certain crowd. In the show he was sitting rather exaggerated. But men typically do need to keep their legs open when they sit. We have something in between them that gets very uncomfortable if squished.... I'm so tired of hearing this BS sexist "man spreading" crap. Wrecked the ending a bit for me.

    The End of the Fucking World returns for another season of delightful misanthropy, and while it's not as fast-paced as the initial year, it's still just as well-crafted and subtlety lovely.

    Why am I sympathising and loving these strange, wierd characters. Amazing acting and writing, thats why.

    Stop reading reviews, the less you know the better. So much packed into eight episodes a season, and its great.
  • 1d ago
    Such a beautifully crafted season to a complex and interesting tv show, quite unlike any other.
  • 1d ago
    Havent seen a soundtrack used so well in a long time. Paired so well with the great acting, camera angles and show writing.
  • 1d ago
    This season is once again so well writen. Nothing feels pointless or out of place. Everything has purpose and it is so refreshing to watch.
