‘You’ Season Two Will Emphasis On Joe’s Early Life


‘You’ Season Two Will Emphasis On Joe’s Early Life

Based on a novel by Caroline Kepnes.

Yes, the release date for the 2nd Season of Netflix’s ‘You ‘Film is not officially announced, but snippets of the upcoming season are beginning to evolve – revealing more about what the plot might be hinged on.


Co-Creator, Sera Gamble, just recently disclosed it will be focusing more on the Major character, Joe’s early life. The film, which is based on a novel by Caroline Kepnes, added its first series to Netflix towards the final lap of 2018. 

The film follows a bookstore manager, Joe Goldberg – Penn Badgley as he turns wild and worryingly obsessed with a woman known as Guinevere – Elizabeth Lail.  

Warning: Spoiler Alert Ahead.

The 2nd Season will loosely be hinged on the novel’s sequel, Hidden Bodies and will also witness Joe moving from New York to Los Angeles.

Gamble also revealed in an interview that not apparently all was clear in the first episode, adding that Season 2 will help understand Joe’s terrible childhood.

“We’ll be going into Joe’s early life in season two, and naturally we want to know more and move around in his entire life.

“I will say that the whole time we’re in the writers’ room talking about what that story could be, or what flashbacks or glimpses into his life we might catch, this has been a guiding principle for us; he had a pretty terrible childhood and that does contribute to who he is as an adult.

“But we also wanted to make it clear that a lot of us had shitty childhoods and most of us don’t do what Joe Goldberg does – we’re trying to walk that line.”


She added: “He doesn’t want to kill anyone ever again, but probably in season two he will end up killing someone,” she said.

“He’s absolutely heartbroken after Beck and he and also we’re keenly aware that people are coming to the show after binging season 1 and have all fallen in love with Elisabeth Lail -Beck.
