Trailer For Netflix's Teenage Psychopath Road Trip Series THE END OF THE F***ING WORLD
A wild trailer has been released for a new Netflix series being released called The End of the F***ing World. It's based on the award-winning series of comic books by Charles Forsman and it's a dark comedy that follows two crazy-ass teens who embark on a psychopathic road trip.
The concept has some very dark and disturbing elements as one of the main characters wants to embrace the dark passenger that lives inside of him. There seems to be a lot of dark tension and what makes it so weird is that there's a light-hearted quirkiness to it. You'll see what I mean when you watch the trailer.
The story follows a 17-year old psychopath named James (Alex Lawther), and a very moody teenage girl named Alyssa (Jessica Barden). Alyssa thinks James is her soulmate, but what she doesn't know is that James wants to kill her. The two characters embark on journey to track down Alyssa’s biological father, who left home when she was a child. This adventure leads them down a “menacing and surreal path.”
The eight-part series will premiere on Channel 4 in the U.K. on October 24th. There’s no word yet on when the series will make its US debut on Netflix.
