Late last year (or earlier this year in North America), Netflix released the British dark comedy series The End of the F***ing World, which was sort of a coming of age story mixed in with murder and a potentially-psychotic lead. It was a show that could have ended up as a one-note ride that relied too heavily on the plot and morbid jokes, but it turned out to have quite the emotional undercurrent that really drove things forward.
But what about a potential sequel to the series? The way things were left seemed to imply that there was no story left to tell, but the show’s creator Jonathan Entwistle expressed his interest in continuing the story, but we’ll see if that ends up happening, as the show’s writer now seems otherwise preoccupied. I’m talking about Charlie Covell, who wrote all the episodes of the series.
On Sunday, Netflix announced via a press release that they ordering a new fantasy series called KAOS. According to the streaming giant, KAOS is “a darkly comedic and contemporary reimagining of Greek mythology, exploring themes of gender politics, power, and life in the underworld.” It definitely sounds like quite the ambitious project, and I’m interested to see just how it’s tackled.
KAOS will be an hour-long series made up of 10 episodes. On board to executive produce are Nina Lederman (A113), Tanya Seghatchian (Brightstar), and John Woodward (Brightstar). Admittedly, I’m not thrilled with the premise, but I’m at least willing to give it a shot based on the strengths of the writer.
