It became an instant hit for the streaming service, but with only eight, short episodes, and a shocking finale that cuts to black before you find out James' fate, questions surrounding a second season arose almost instantly.

TEotFW follows James and Alyssa, two teenagers living a seemingly typical teen experience as they face the fear of coming adulthood. But quickly, this somewhat familiar teenage experience takes a more nihilistic turn as James's character exhibits a rapidly forming sociopathy that threatens both of their futures. He harbors violent fantasies and begins to act on them, while Alyssa remains as willfully ignorant for as long as she can, blinded by young love. Forsman's story highlights the disdain, fear and existential search that many teenagers fear, but through a road trip drama that owes as much to Badlands as The Catcher in the Rye. His inviting, Charles Schulz-influenced style lends a deadpan quality that underscores the narrative's tension. Forsman graduated in and is a two-time Ignatz Award-winner for his self-published minicomic, Snake Oil. The End of the Fucking World is his first graphic novel, but certainly not his last.

So anyone who has devoured the book will be struck by two aspects of its filmed Netflix adaptation , written by Charlie Covell and directed by Jonathan Entwistle and Lucy Tcherniak. But the latter lesson is made far more forcefully in the show, which is much more pessimistic and bloody. The cops: Eunice Noon and Teri Donoghue, the police officers who go after James and Alyssa, are a pure invention of the show and have no presence in the comic. Same goes for Eddie Onslow, the cop who tries to help James when he turns himself in. The dead cat: In the early stages of both stories, we learn that James killed a cat as a youth.
