The End Of The F***ing World Series 2

The acclaimed first series of dark comedy drama The End Of The F***ing World garnered a legion of fans and instantly became one of All4's most-binged shows when it launched 2017. It still holds the record for the best performing original All4 exclusive ever.

Now, at last, Series 2 is ready. It starts on Channel 4 in November. The first look picture, revealed today, shows Alyssa (Jessica Barden) standing in a forest, now in a diner uniform.

The network says: "After a series finale that left viewers reeling, this series sets the action two years on, with Alyssa still dealing with the fallout of the events of the first series."

The second series will see the introduction of a new character called Bonnie (pictured). Played by BIFA-winning actor Naomi Ackie (who played Ruby in The Bisexual, and is also due to appear in the forthcoming Star Wars: Episode IX), the character is an outsider "with a troubled past and a mysterious connection to Alyssa".

Channel 4 teases: "As to the fate of James (Alex Lawther), who we last saw shot on a beach at the end of Series 1, expectant fans awaiting the new series - which will have its global premiere on Channel 4 this November - will have to watch on to find out..."

The new episodes have been written by Charlie Covell, inspired by the characters from the award-winning series of comic books by Charles Forsman. The original songs and score have been written and performed by Graham Coxon, with British directors Lucy Forbes and Destiny Ekaragha overseeing the filming.
