The End of the F***ing World

Penned by rising British writer Charlie Covell, this Emmy-nominated and BAFTA-winning series, pairs a ferociously talented ensemble of British actors - including Alex Lawther, Jessica Barden, Naomi Ackie, Wunmi Mosaku and Gemma Whelan - with a pitch-black premise, surges of violence and a beautifully blasphemous script to create something really f***ing special.
