‘The End of the F***king World’ Comes To All4 In October. See The First Clips Here.
‘The End of the F***king World‘, the 8 part darkly comic drama will launch on All4 as a box set later this month Channel 4 has announced.
Based on the award-winning series of comic books by Charles Forsman, ‘The End of the F***ing World’ invites viewers into the confused lives of teen outsiders James (Alex Lawther – ‘Black Mirror’, ‘The Imitation Game’) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden – ‘The Lobster’, ‘Ellen’, ‘Penny Dreadful’) as they decide to escape from their families and embark on a road trip to find Alyssa’s estranged father. As the pair get caught up in a series of violent events, they find themselves on a journey of discovery that becomes progressively ominous, trailed by two uniquely mismatched police detectives – played by BAFTA-winning Wunmi Mosaku (‘Damilola Our Loved Boy’) and Gemma Whelan (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘The Moorside’).
Channel 4 has also released two clips introducing the main characters, James and Alyssa.
James, 17, is pretty sure he’s a psychopath – emotionally detached, cold and disdainful, he’s decided he’s ready to graduate from killing animals. He thinks it might be interesting to kill something bigger…a human. And he’s got the perfect person in mind…
Alyssa, also 17, is new in school – cool and moody, she’s existential angst made flesh. But despite being popular at school, she still feels like she doesn’t belong. Spotting James one day at school, however, she thinks she may have found a soulmate…
‘The End of the F***ing World’ is written by Charlie Covell (‘Humans’, ‘Banana’), with Jonathan Entwistle and Lucy Tcherniak directing. The series will launch as a complete box set exclusively on All4 later this month, with the first episode premiering on Channel 4.
