The story follows the lives of two teenagers — James and Alyssa — who go way too far in order to escape the perils of the monotony of adulthood. James, a harmless-looking young boy, is a self-diagnosed psychopath, whereas Alyssa, an everyday teenager, is a foul-mouthed rebel who is trying to get away from her boring life. James, who put his hand into a fryer as a child "just to feel something", forges an unlikely friendship with Alyssa, and is planning to kill her. Alyssa, who is cursing out a waitress and being moody in the trailer, finds a release in James she hasn't ever experienced before. The teen-duo run away from their homes on a road trip after James punches his dad in the face and steals his car. This toxic companionship forms the bedrock of the dark drama-comedy The End of the F***ing World.
The End of the F***king World consists of eight episodes, was adapted by Charlie Covell, directed by Jonathan Entwistle and features a score by Graham Coxon. It stars Alex Lawther (from Black Mirror episode 'Shut Up and Dance') and Jessica Barden (best known for Penny Dreadful). The End of the F***ing World also stars Gemma Whelan, Wunmi Mosaku, Steve Oram, Christine Bottomley and Navin Chowdhry.
