Oh… goodie.

Netflix is about to drop another original series and it’s the stuff of a TV binger’s dreams.

It’s a dark British comedy that’s been described as 10 Things I Hate About You meets Heathers.

Based on Charles Forsman’s award-winning graphic novels, the series follows James (Alex Lawther), a teenager who’s, well, a little bit sociopathic. 

In The End of the F**king World, James meets Alyssa (Jessica Barden), a classmate who says exactly what she’s thinking at all times and who has no time for anyone’s s**t.

Alyssa decides she could fall in love with James, and James decides he’d quite like to murder Alyssa.

And so this couple of misfits embark on a road trip of self discovery, romance and, erm, possibly murder.

James decks his dad, steals his car, and they hit the road, attempting to escape their weird little lives together.

It’s the life-changing – and possible life-ending – trip of a lifetime (try saying that three times fast).

Of course, things do not exactly go to plan for the runaway teens and hilarity ensues.

The series drops on Netflix on January 5 and we can hardly bloody wait.
