Netflix's new series is a United Kingdom original about twisted teens

"Based upon the graphic novel by Charles Forsman".

The 17-year-old James is least enthusiastic about everything in life and aims to feel better. Having decided that he's "pretty much a psychopath", James has subjected himself to a self-imposed isolation that ends when he befriends the equally cynical Alyssa. The cast includes Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden. He then meets Alyssa, who is also of the same age. When things come to a head at home between Alyssa, her mother and stepdad, she leaves and persuades James to join her in search of her real father.

The trailer for The End of the F***ing World doesn't give too much away, but there are some interesting flashes of how their road trip shapes up: an exploding auto, some blood, cursing out a diner waitress, hitchhiking. the list goes on. But, the teens can't do anything about it and is compelled to complete their road trip.


TEOTFW has yet to be renewed for a second season, but that probably depends on how the audience responds to its premiere on Netflix.

So I greeted the news that the UK's Channel 4 would be adapting Forsman's first major work as a television miniseries, and Netflix would be bringing it stateside, with utter glee. The series also stars Gemma Whelan from "Game of Thrones" and "Upstart Crow", as well as Steve Oram from "Sightseers".

The End of the Fucking World premieres on Netflix on January 5th.
