Don't miss

The End of the F***ing World is a British black comedy-drama television series based on the comic book by Charles Forsman. The show follows James, a 17-year-old who thinks he is a psychopath, and Alyssa, a rebellious classmate who runs away with him. The first season premiered on Channel 4 in the UK in 2017 and on Netflix internationally in 2018. The second season followed in 2019, picking up two years after the events of the first season. But will there be a third season? Here’s everything we know so far.

End of the F***ing World Season 3 Potential Plot: What’s next?

The second season ended with James and Alyssa finally reconciling after a tense and dangerous encounter with Bonnie, a fanatical admirer of Clive Koch, the professor who sexually assaulted Alyssa and was killed by James in the first season. Bonnie was determined to avenge Clive’s death, but eventually realized that he was not the man she idealized. James and Alyssa managed to escape from her and decided to start a new life together, leaving their past behind.

However, the final scene showed a mysterious man with a rifle aiming at James and Alyssa’s car, leaving their fate ambiguous. Who is this man and why is he targeting them? Is he related to Clive or someone else from their past? Will James and Alyssa survive or will their story end tragically? These are some of the questions that a potential third season could explore.

Alternatively, a third season could focus on new characters and stories, as the creator of the show, Charlie Covell, has suggested. In an interview with Radio Times, she said: “I think if I did do something again, I would want to do something totally different and new. I think it would be about different characters. I think it’s done.” She also added that she felt “there’s something quite nice about leaving them where they are”.

End of the F***ing World Season 3 Cast: Who’s in it?

If there is a third season and it follows James and Alyssa’s story, we can expect to see Jessica Barden and Alex Lawther reprise their roles as the main protagonists. They have both received critical acclaim for their performances, as well as several award nominations.

The supporting cast of the second season included Naomi Ackie as Bonnie, Gemma Whelan as DC Eunice Noon, Wunmi Mosaku as DC Teri Darego, Steve Oram as Phil, Christine Bottomley as Gwen, Josh Dylan as Todd, Barry Ward as Leslie, Kelly Harrison as Vanessa and Tim Key as Gus. Depending on the plot of the third season, some of them could return or be replaced by new actors.

If the third season introduces new characters and stories, then we can expect to see a completely different cast.

As of now, there has been no official announcement about the renewal or cancellation of the show. However, given the popularity and critical success of the show, as well as its loyal fan base, there is still hope that it could come back for another season.

On the other hand, there are also some reasons to believe that the show might be over. As mentioned earlier, Covell has expressed her desire to move on to other projects and leave James and Alyssa’s story where it is. She also said that she does not want to “outstay [her] welcome” and that she feels “very proud” of what they have done with the show.

Moreover, the show has already deviated from its source material, which only covered the events of the first season. The second season was an original creation by Covell and her team of writers. Therefore, there is no pre-existing story to follow for a third season.

Ultimately, the decision rests with Channel 4 and Netflix, who have not yet revealed their plans for the show’s future.

End of the F***ing World Season 3 Release Date: Speculation!

If there is a third season of The End of the F***ing World, when can we expect it to premiere? Well, based on the previous seasons’ release dates, we can make some guesses.

The first season aired on Channel 4 from October 24 to November 7, 2017. It was then released on Netflix on January 5, 2018. The second season aired on Channel 4 from November 4 to November 5, 2019. It was then released on Netflix on November 5, 2019.

Therefore, if there is a similar gap between seasons again, we can expect a third season to air on Channel 4 sometime in late 2024 or early 2025. It would then be released on Netflix shortly after.

However, this is just speculation and it could change depending on various factors, such as the production schedule, the availability of the cast and crew, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
