The British dark comedy series – which is brilliantly deadpan – was almost universally adored when it landed on Netflix, despite previously airing on Channel 4, leaving fans waiting for answers about the mahoosive cliffhanger ever since.
In case you forgot, the first season of the coming-of-age-drama follows two teen misfits, James (Alex Lawther), a budding psychopath, and Alyssa (Jessica Barden), his rebellious and influential classmate who together embark on a chaotic road trip.
They’re essentially a modern day Bonnie and Clyde, leaving a path of destruction wherever they go.
We’ve known for a while it’d be making a return, with the show’s creators sharing an image of the new script to Twitter back in March.
Well, now we have official confirmation the eagerly-awaited second season will be with us in November.
It’s been revealed that the new season will be set two years after the end of the first season, with the first-look pictures unveiling a brand new character.
In the new images from the series, 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.
Notably absent is James (Alex Lawther) who had a very uncertain fate at the end of the first season.
However, given that he’s a central part of the show, you’d expect him to make an appearance at some point.
In fact, the man himself, Alex Lawther told Digital Spy about what he’d like the first scene of season two to be.
“Jess used to talk about… there are some themes in series one where we’re on the beach, and everything’s coming to an end”, he said.
“She 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!
“I’m not sure how Charlie [Covell, series writer] will take that, but we’re going to push that idea as far as we can.”
Much like season one, you’d expect the follow up to land on Channel 4 before making its way to Netflix.

Charismatic, witty, charming, engaging - four things Joshua Rogers will never be. Thankfully, he’s a semi-competent editor, who, after graduating university with two mostly pointless degrees, joined The Hook two years ago. He subsequently honed his writing skills over several features and investigative pieces, arguably letting The Hook audience in on way too much of his personal life.
