Will there be a ‘The End of the F***ing World’ season 3?
While everything is going that well, of course, the fanbase was expecting that there is going to be a third season. However, it is now official that the last episode which released on November 4, 2019, is the final.
Creator Charlie Covell confirmed that season 2 is marking the end of the show during an interview with Radio Times. Covell stated that the story ended even though the fans wanted more. In her own words:
“But you never know, and you obviously you can’t write for what people want. I think you have to work out what’s right for the characters and the story— I sound like such a d*** saying that but I think you can’t, you’re not doing fan fiction.”
In the same interview British actor and writer, Covell continued her words as follows:
“Put it this way, if for some reason we hadn’t been allowed to do season two, I would have been really gutted. Which I think shows that it was the right thing to do – for me, anyway. And I think I like where we end it, and yeah, it feels right for the story.”
