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.

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

  • 1d ago
    The actors are amazing
  • 2d ago
    loved the soundtrack, love the characters.
  • 2d ago
    Completely new and refreshing. Well written, acted and the pace is on point. Love to see more dark/upside-down 25-minute snacks in this space.
  • 2d ago
    Not as good as the first season. It's a different approach than the first but still entertaining nonetheless.
  • 5d ago
    Had no idea what to expect and ended up devouring the series over the course of the weekend (always a good sign).
  • 6d ago
    Essa série trás menos reviravoltas e surpresas do que a primeira temporada, porém os diálogos são impressionantes, não tem nenhuma irregularidade e a consolidação do caráter dos personagens é muito visível ao longo da temporada, o que mostra um ar mais frio nessa série maravilhosa.

    It had been two years since The End of the F***ing World aired on Netflix, proving to be a unique and unforgettable gem, and leaving viewers with a severe cliffhanger. Skip to October of 2019 and the service finally releases a new trailer of the show's next season. From the looks of the preview, it seemed the show would take a bold new direction, concluding the last season's arc with a surprising death and going off on an entirely new narrative that would be significantly different from the show's beginning. Here we are now, nearly a month after the second season dropped on Netflix and although most viewers probably already realized this fresh new angle wasn't at all where the show was headed towards, I believe it's worth pointing out the many flaws in Netflix's most recent disappointment. While the second season begins by embracing that notion of new beginnings by introducing a new character and a correlating plotline, it becomes clear by the middle of the second episode that the show writers intend to simply rehash a plotline that sticks very close to the first season's and is far from original. The various episodes follow common tropes that are hardly tweaked to compensate for their use in the first place, making my first view rather predictable and unsatisfying. The lack of originality that showrunners dared to tackle results in numerous cliffhangers that desperately attempt to keep viewers watching but are ultimately empty and fail to serve any significance to the overall plot. Even moments during the middle of episodes offer viewers a brief rush of adrenaline as characters threaten to take mind-blogging actions only to be completely scrapped off through the use of a daydream or another technique to diffuse the established tension. Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden's acting are mainly solid, though there were several times throughout the season where Barden's portrayal of Alyssa felt stale, falling short of the snarky and cynical aspects of her character during the first season and leaning more towards a weary and noticeably forced performance. In contrast, new cast member, Naomi Ackie's depiction of the troubled Bonnie was a noteworthy display and certainly served as one of this season's strongest elements. Ultimately, The End of The F***ing World's second season was an unfortunate set-back from its initial one, which offered a remarkably fresh plot and new character archetypes that would only be reused rather than expanded upon in its eventual successor. It feels even more disappointing when acknowledging the clear talent among the shows' cast and knowing that show writers were too nervous to make any daring or innovative choices. Whether or not the show is renewed for a third season is a question that remains up in the air, though if there's something that Netflix's many other originals have proven it's that viewership will always outweigh quality.

    To all the people who want to give good shouts due to dark humour jokes they have to watch this. It is hilarious, interesting and the characters are charismatically apathetic (if you already watched you'll know what I mean). The story is not as sharp as in the first season and it is kinda flat, but the narrative is well written. It will help you pass a good time I promise you.
  • Nov 30, 2019
    A love story that doesn't make you want to leave the room.
  • Nov 30, 2019
    Dark, deep and intimate, The End of the f***ing world's second season adds new thematic depth to the series, exploring the psychology of trauma, dealing with loss and the absurdities of young love --- making for a heartbreaking dual character study that packs an emotional punch.
