That, according lớn Charlie Covell, who adapted it for the screen from Charles Forsman"s graphic novel of the same name, stems from one key factor.

"I can"t take credit for Alyssa và James" popularity as they"re Chuck"s creation," she told The i. "There"s something about the disparity between the image they project và who they actually are that makes them recognisable to the audience – we can see them as two very damaged teenagers who just want khổng lồ connect và we identify with that.

"I feel it especially with Alyssa. I wish I had been that ballsy & headstrong & had the ability lớn be rude và not care."

But despite its staggering success, some viewers felt that the series shouldn"t return for round two.

There is always scope for continuation – stories may stop, but they don"t have to lớn kết thúc – và while the first chapter could easily have remained as a standalone, the decision was made lớn bring it baông chồng.

"In all truth, we just thought about it as a single thing," writer Charlie Covell told Digital Spy. "Obviously, we always think about how you continue something, but I think the way we talked about the second season is: if the first season is about running away, then the second season is about coming back và having lớn giảm giá with stuff.

"So it"s that transition from being a teenager into lớn kind of adulthood. It sounds a bit pretentious, but I think it"s more like a response to what happens in season one, rather than it just being another season where they kind of bởi crazy shit. Because I feel if you just remix characters and let them bởi vì the same thing again – I don"t think that"s right for the story."

She added: "At some point, you"re lượt thích, "F**k, I"ve sầu got lớn go home. I"ve sầu got lớn sort my life out. I can"t keep running".

"Obviously an ending is an ending. If you over it at a wedding, that"s the over – but then there"s obviously after the wedding, the divorce, the children, whatever. You"ve got all those possibilities.

"I think an kết thúc is where you just stop a story. If you continue it on, then that ending becomes the beginning of something else."

Alex Lawther (James), whose involvement was kept secret until the over of episode two, also felt that season two was a necessity.

"Season one is almost lượt thích a big question in itself," he told Digital Spy. "And as soon as Charlie said we"re going to lớn look into the fallout of season one & the consequences of what are highly traumatic events in these young people"s lives... Yeah, that all made sense.

"So it was about answering that particular question of: what happens next? When all of these things happen, what are you left with?"

Chatting lớn NME about the moment he was told that he"d be needed for season two, Lawther said: "I was worried that James would be a ghost or in flashbacks, lượt thích in A Christmas Carol."

And Jessy Barden was game for season two.

"If people enjoy something, you know, why wouldn"t you want khổng lồ vị it again?" she told Digital Spy.

"The series is still about the same two people. It really is still about the two people that people responded to lớn before. It"s not like they"re completely different people in any way. In some ways, they are. They"re still very complex."

And it helped that Forsman "really liked it", Covell told The i.

"That made me more relaxed about writing it," she added.

So, will James and Alyssa be bachồng for round three?

The End of the F***ing World season 3 release date: When will it air?

At the premiere for season two, Covell, who is currently working on Kaos, a br& new show for Netflix that "puts a modern twist on Greek & Roman mythology", didn"t sound hopeful about bringing it bachồng.

"I don"t think you"re going to lớn get another series," she told press. "I think sometimes it"s good to lớn just stop things and I hope when you see the over you"ll agree.

"I think you can push things but this feels like an actual kết thúc. Sorry."

But chatting lớn Digital Spy back in May 2019, she didn"t rule it out: "I don"t think you should keep on going with something beyond its natural life.

"We"ve met them as old teenagers, and we"re now taking them inlớn adulthood, & I"m not sure – I don"t know if it"s right to lớn see more. I don"t know. We"ll have lớn see. Obviously never say never, but I think maybe sometimes it"s good khổng lồ get out."

A voice interjected: "We had a good idea the other day though, so I wouldn"t say never. But anyway…"

Covell added: "We could do it like Boyhood."

"Yeah!" said Barden. "That"s what I think we should actually do."

"Could we afford you guys?" joked Covell.

Barden replied: "I"ve probably got another year coasting off this, and then I"m lượt thích probably going baông xã to being like, "Oh my God, why am I an actress? Another year at best.""

But at the Virgin Media BAFTA TV Awards back in July, Covell didn"t sound hopeful when asked about its future: "I have a feeling probably not.

"I feel with shows lượt thích that is probably better to lớn leave it when it is at its height (it picked up two awards for Best Drama Series và Best Supporting Actress for Naomày Ackie). We all feel incredibly proud that we made that second season as successful as the first.

"Obviously you can never say never, but I think it"s good lớn quit while you"re ahead và I"m really pleased where we left them, & I think that"s it I"m afraid."

If we did get a season three (we"ll never let go), it"s unclear what the time frame would be – season one landed in October 2017, và then there was that huge wait for the second chapter (November 2019) – so your guess really is as good as ours.

There"s also Covid to contend with, which has made filming tricker than it"s ever been.

The End of the F***ing World season 3 cast: Who"s in it?

The show couldn"t exist without Alyssa và James, so both Barden and Lawther would need to lớn be on board for future episodes.

"It just wouldn"t work ," Barden said (via the Guardian). "The show is Alyssa and James together, you know – that"s what it is."

The pair told NME that they"d love to work together again, either on TEOTFW or another project (we hope it"s both!).

"I really wanmãng cầu play a female Joker," said Barden. "I wanmãng cầu play a psychopath."

Lawther added: "I could play Harley Quinn và you can play the Joker."

Getting the gang bachồng together could be tricky though – the duo are in dem& following the show"s international success, and are both currently focusing on their own projects.

Initially, Lawther was reticent to commit lớn TEOTFW.

"Initially, I thought was about a young man being violent towards a young woman, and I thought: "I"m not really that interested because there"s enough of that around,"" he told the Guardian.

But he didn"t take any convincing after digging a little deeper.

"But I realised that James becomes something else. It"s not about his violence towards Alyssa, it"s about hlặng understanding how he feels & working out that actually he"s not a psychopath, he"s just very, very, very sad."

We"d also expect Alyssa"s mum Gwen (Christine Bottomley) to lớn feature.

There"s also a possibility we could see James" dead mum (Kelly Harrison) & James" dead dad Phil (Steve Oram) in flashbacks.
