You may be disappointed if you log into Netflix today if the United Kingdom is looking for The End of the F***ing World to binge watch. That’s because season 2 of The End of the F***ing World won’t be on Netflix UK for a while. Here’s when it will and where you can watch in the meantime.
A British dark comedy that saw Alyssa, James and their friends pack up and embark on an adventure. It was played by Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden. They’re social outcasts and as such, are a bit weird. The second season sees them deal with the chaos of Season 1.
There is a place where you can stream the series in the UK. 4oD has streamed every episode since November 4th. There are also previous episodes that can be viewed there. Be aware that the program contains unskippable advertisements before and after each episode.
You could even go ad-free. Channel 4 offers an option for that too but it’s in beta. The option is £3.99 a month with a free trial available.
Netflix UK has not yet been released. We can however use the past release schedule as a guideline to determine when Netflix UK will launch.
Season 1 released on Channel 4 in October 2017 and didn’t come to Netflix until January 2018. That means we’ll likely see the series added sometime in early 2020 following that schedule. Some have predicted it won’t be a year, however which would mean the end of 2020.
In an article by Deadline, they noted how Alex Mahon wants people to know both in the United Kingdom and abroad in Channel 4’s involvement. In the article it states: “This results in Netflix having improved rights to and more ownership over brands like The End of the F***ing World, meaning audiences potentially associate the show with Netflix rather than Channel 4.”
That’s obviously a problem for Channel 4 in the United Kingdom so expect Channel 4 to be hammering home this is their title. It’s worth noting that every reference on Netflix UK to the show contains Channel 4 branding.
