“The End Of The F***ing World” Might Get A 2nd Season

The Channel 4 original that is taking the world by storm.

The show blew away American audiences on Netflix. That popularity might just earn them a second season.

The show follows a young man who thinks he might be a psychopath. His love interest, a girl-next-door who despises the world, shares his disillusionment with life. What she doesn’t know is that he secretly plans to kill her.

We love murderers, for some reason. They dominate the airwaves. When we ask why, we might conclude that these are simply the stories worth telling (nobody cares about a story without conflict). In essence, it’s a morally-ambiguous protagonist that we want to see these days. We call them “anti-heroes.”

“The End of the F***ing World” capitalizes on our fascination with anti-heroism.

What makes it special, though, is how it unites the cold killer instinct we loved in Dexter with the Indie overtones that lifted our hearts in Juno. The overall effect is definitely unique, and the show’s leading characters (James and Alyssa) bring the dark humor needed to keep the show from getting too heavy.

Some are worried that the show will only get worse with time. Since it wasn’t intended to go beyond a single season, they fear it will wind up like Beyond Stranger Things. It’s still too early to tell how it’s going to turn out. In fact, we don’t even know for sure if it’s happening yet.

But would a victory lap of such a great show really be such a bad thing?
