Lovely interview with the Derry Girls’ Saoirse-Monica Jackson and Siobhan McSweeney
TEOTFW season 3 probably isn’t happening as creator Charlie Covell admits she likes where season 2 leaves off. The End Of The F***ing World premieres on Channel 4 on November 4 and heads to Netflix
Season 2 of The End Of The F***ing World will hit our television screens from 4 November and for many fans it’s been a long time coming. It’s been two years since James and Alyssa landed themselves in some serious hot water at the end of season 1 and the suspense is killing us.
While you’re no doubt excited about the show’s return to Channel 4 and Netflix, don’t expect The End Of The F***ing World to be a show that continues on for endless seasons. In fact, don’t expect it to continue past season 2.
The show’s explosive season 1 finale saw James running from the police before an ominous gunshot went off and left James’ fate up in the air. Many thought the show could have actually ended there but, mercifully, TEOTFW was granted a second season.
Just in case you were already looking ahead to a third season of the hit drama, we’re officially here to burst your bubble. TEOTFW series creator Charlie Covell tells RadioTimes that it’s probably not in the cards.
Charlie said: “I think, for me, that’s it now. Yeah, that’s done. I think to try and eke more out would be wrong, I like where we’ve left it.”
That may sound disappointing but if the show’s creator is confident in where season 2 leaves off, then we have no choice but to stan and wait to see it for ourselves.
Charlie Covell also told the publication that she felt some pressure following up season 1. “There’s pressure, but there’s pressure because people like something that we all did together,” she explained.
In the suspenseful trailer for The End Of The F***ing World season 2, we see Alyssa trying to cope with her life after the incident. She back to waitressing and, oh yeah, she’s getting bullets in the mail, too. But, of course, the trailer left a bunch of unanswered questions. The most important one being…IS JAMES ALIVE OR WUT?!
Now that it’s clear that TEOTFW probably won’t return for a season 3, we’ll definitely be savouring each and every episode from 4 November.
The End of the F***ing World became a phenomenon when it was first released two years ago, and fans of the series have been waiting for answers about the massive cliffhanger for season one. There haven’t been any updates on the outcome but we know that second season has been confirmed which will be on Channel 4/Netflix that will premiere in November.
The End Of The F World Season 2 Plot Details
Moreover, it was also revealed that the second season will be set two years later and the first look pictures have revealed alongside the unveiling of a brand new character. In this new photo, we see Alyssa (Jessica Barden) is seen dressed in a diner uniform, while the photos also tease the mysterious Bonnie (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s Naomi Ackie), an outsider with a troubled past and a connection to Alyssa.
The cast member that is missing is James who is played by Alex Lawther. His fate is unknown at the end of the season one he was shot by someone which means he might be dead or in person. Moreover, the shooting for season 2 began earlier this year. This was confirmed by star Barden through an Instagram post. Also, during an interview Lawther in which he was asked how he would like to see season two start, joking: “[Jessica] was saying how she would like the second series to start with a musical on the beach – taking a role in a musical version of The End of the F***ing World, which I would be completely up for!
Derry Girls Season 2 was a joy to behold and with another season on the cards, JOE had the chance to chat with the cast and reflect on the last six episodes
With Season 3 of Derry Girls on the horizon, now’s the perfect time to reflect on those last six episodes, and unlike that famous wake when Michelle brought the ‘funny’ scones, things were slightly more normal when JOE had the chance to chat with Lisa McGee (writer/creator), Nicola Coughlan (Clare), Dylan Llewellyn (James), Louisa Harland (Orla), and Saoirse-Monica Jackson (Erin).
Here’s what they had to say on…
The opening scene when Orla interrupts Erin taking a bath.
Just like the very first scene in the show, Season 2 opens with Orla gatecrashing a very private moment of self-reflection for Erin when she’s in the bath and imagining what it’s liked to be interviewed by Terry Wogan.
