The End of the F***ing World
Featuring a kick-ass soundtrack and stellar performances, the fearless series reimagines the ‘coming-of-age’ teen-angst dramedy – removing the cliche BS to reveal a nuanced and unexpected love story.
Based on the award-winning graphic novels, adapted by acclaimed newcomer Charlie Covell, the eight part, half hour series follows James (Alex Lawther, Black Mirror) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden, Penny Dreadful) – a budding teen psychopath and a foul-mouthed rebel fed-up with her boring life. The two embark on a roadtrip to find a better life, and escape the impending doom of adulthood. As their chaotic journey unfolds, it becomes apparent that James and Alyssa have crossed a line and have no choice but to take it as far as they can…The End of the F***ing World.
