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.

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.

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]

Teen noir with savage class. Kids will love it.

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.

The End of the F***ing World is designed for binge culture. Watch it all at once, and watch it now. You won't regret it.

In its second series, the show has morphed into a different, less anarchic and explosive experience - but it is richer for it.

Altogether, it oozes "not for everyone"; although despite that, I think it might be.
November 7, 2019
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.

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.
November 7, 2019
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.

Once again, it's a story about the light that slips through the cracks in broken hearts; this time, the light may not be quite as dazzling, but it's absolutely still worth capturing.

The End of the F***cking World season two proves that a bit of fan service doesn't mean the death of good storytelling.
November 6, 2019
Darker by necessity, this new season still finds the show's signature humor and heart intact.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
November 6, 2019
The new episodes share many of the original batch's most effective elements -- strong performances, deft retro soundtrack choices (leaning more on folk this time), a blend of humor and pathos -- without ever finding a reason to exist.

It's an astonishingly nihilistic series, gorgeously made, and for all its macabre humour, very moving.
November 6, 2019
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.

It's a dizzyingly intense tour through guilt, trauma, and ultimately hope.
November 5, 2019
Barden and Lawther's performances, down to their telling inner-dialogue, are tactful and poignant in portraying their issues that are a lot tougher than a case of teen angst.
