This isn’t your usual boy meets girl tale. Come join teenage outsiders James and Alyssa on a road trip like no other.
Netflix and E4 have teamed up to create dark comedy The End of the F***king World. It has already been aired in the UK in October 2017 but it is now coming out international to Netflix on January 5th.
This drama is based on Charles Forsman’s award-winning graphic novels of the same name. The eight-episode series is a coming of age story about a self-diagnosed teen psychopath and his rebellious friend who go on a road trip.
Cast: James (Alex Lawther – Black Mirror, The Imitation Game) Alyssa (Jessica Barden – The Lobster, Ellen, Penny Dreadful) Wunmi Mosaku (Damilola Our Loved Boy) and Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones, The Moorside).
‘The two teenagers embark on a road trip to find a better life, and escape the impending doom of adulthood,’ Deadline notes. ‘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.’
Available on Netflix from January 5th.
