Fans of the dark comic book-adapted series The End of the F***ing World have only just been reunited with the TV show, but time spent binging the second season will have to savored. Creator Charlie Covell said in an exclusive interview with Radio Times that there are no plans for a third installment.

Yep, it looks like season two is The End of the F***ing World after all, or at least it is for the show's protagonist's James (Alex Lawther) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden). The reason, Covell explains, is that she doesn't want to fall into the classic pitfall of stretching too much out of something that was meant to stay tightly wrapped.

“I think, for me, that’s it now," she said when probed about a third season. "Yeah, that’s done. I think to try and eke more out would be wrong, I like where we’ve left it.”

The move becomes more understandable still as she talks of the pressure of penning the second season — which aired in the UK last night and dropped on Netflix today, November 5 — when considering the success of the first.

“Oh my God, yeah,” Covell said when asked whether she felt pressurized.“Absolutely. Totally, I think there’s a big part of you that’s worried about what people think – but I worry and then I think, ‘My God, the fact that I’m worried about fans’ reaction to a show is a very nice problem to have."

She adds, “There’s pressure, but there’s pressure because people like something that we all did together.”
