A quick recap of The End of the F***ing World, please?
Teen runaways embark on darkly comic road trip. The debut series ended on a cliff-hanger with self-diagnosed psychopath James (Alex Lawther) running along a beach as a gunshot rings out.
When the show returns, two years have passed and Alyssa (Jessica Barden) is still dealing with the fallout.
As for James’s fate?
Dead. Prison. Still running on the beach like a scene from Chariots of Fire. We just don’t know.
What do we know?
There are some new faces. Naomi Ackie plays Bonnie, a formidable sounding character who is described as “an outsider with a troubled past and a mysterious connection to Alyssa”. Not to forget Tim Key as motel owner Gus.
Gulp. This won’t end well.
That’s what I said about Brexit [ . . . ]
