Netflix’s ‘You’ Season 2 Is Coming Back “Darker, Gorier, And Scarier” Than Ever


Netflix’s ‘You’ Season 2 Is Coming Back “Darker, Gorier, And Scarier” Than Ever

It’s creepy, it’s dark and above all, it’s horrifyingly real.

There’s nothing quite like a juicy psychological thriller to sink your eyes into, and You ticks all the right boxes for some binge TV watching

Netflix’s 10-episode series is based on Caroline Kepnes’ novel with the same name, starring Penn Badgley as sinister bookstore manager Joe Goldberg.

The show first premiered on Lifetime back in September last year and has gained something of a cult following since its release in December, after all

The hit series is about a sociopathic guy who wants to make the woman of his dreams fall in love with him.

It’s creepy, it’s dark and above all, it’s horrifyingly real.

Not many can resist the thrill of watching a love-murder mystery story unfold especially during the festive season. Fans have been thrilled by the announcement of the second season of this thriller series.

But there are still sketchy details of who will feature, and where will the story go after Beck’s (Elizabeth Lail) tragic death, not to mention the surprising twists. Here’s everything we know so far.

You season 2 release date: When will it air?

According to the show’s Instagram and Twitter pages, season two is “coming soon” and showrunner Sera Gamble has confirmed that work is already well underway.

a September/October 2019 release date is optimistic, but not out of the question.

You season 2 cast: Who’s returning?

We already know that Badgley will be back as Goldberg, but what about Dr. Nicky, played by John Stamos?

Technically, he could make a return. Gamble told fans that it was “too soon to say definitely whether John Stamos will return in season two”.

Speaking to the dailies, she added: “But we have been talking a lot about the character and we’re excited to keep telling that story.”

Joe’s ex-girlfriend Candace (Ambyr Childers) is miraculously still alive, which means she will return for the next installment.

“She’s not nearly as dead as [Joe] thought,” Gamble said.

There are also a host of other people that Joe didn’t kill, such as his young neighbour Paco (Luca Padovan), bookstore clerk Ethan (Zach Cherry), Paco’s mother Claudia (Victoria Cartagena), Beck’s best friends Lynn (Nicole King) and Annika (Kathryn Gallagher), Beck’s classmate Blythe (Hari Nef), and Peach’s family.

“Part of the fun of continuing the story is that the loose ends from Joe’s past are still dangling and could come back to him at any time,” Gamble told THR.

Victoria Pedretti has signed on to play Goldberg’s latest “love” interest

There’s also James Scully (Heathers) who will play Love’s brother Forty Quinn, described as “confident, opinionated and privileged — at his best, a charming buddy; at his worst, a razor-sharp bully”  and Jenna Ortega who will play Ellie, a teenager who “grew up fast in the big city”.

Carmela Zumbado has been cast as Delilah Alves, an investigative reporter with a nose for a story, which could either be disastrous for Joe or he could bump her off.

Marielle Scott will take on the role of Lucy, described as a career-driven “edgy-chic literary agent” who has a “deadpan wit and a sense of humor”.

And there’s  Magda Apanowicz who will play Sandy, someone from Joe’s past with an “infectious smile and restless spirit” who has been “beaten up by life”.

With an air date not yet on the table, don’t expect a trailer just yet. Netflix, however, recently released a video montage of Joe and Beck’s relationship without Joe’s narration, and it’s the creepiest thing we’ve ever watched.
