Netflix’s Smash Hit ‘You’ Returns On December 26

Unless you have been living under a rock, you’re aware of the Netflix psychological thriller, “You.” The show became a pop culture sensation, and now it is returning with a second season. On November 11, Netflix confirmed the new season would be released on December 26. Are you excited yet?

A Smash Hit

“You” originally premiered on September 9, 2018, as a Lifetime original drama. At first, the series attracted a limited audience. When it started streaming internationally on Netflix on December 26, 2018, it became more popular with over 40 million viewers. Some viewers watched the entire first season in one streaming.

Based on a 2014 novel by Caroline Kepnes, the thriller follows Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), a New York bookstore manager and serial killer. He seemingly falls in love with a customer and writing student, Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail). Joe stops at nothing to gain her affection, and he becomes obsessed with her. Obviously, it’s a terrifying ordeal.

For example, he investigates her social media accounts and eventually stalks her every move. One by one, Beck’s closest acquaintances are murdered. When Beck catches on to Joe’s horrifying behavior (spoiler alert), he ends up murdering her as well. He seems to have committed his murders without any consequences, but that might change during the show’s second season.

What We Can Expect

While “You” premiered initially on Lifetime, it has officially moved to Netflix as a Netflix Original title. The second season is scheduled to be released on December 26, 2019 — one year after the first season premiered.

Viewers can expect a change of scenery in the show’s second season. Joe moves to Los Angeles to turn over a new leaf and to leave his crimes behind in New York City (like that’s even possible). While Beck is sadly no longer in the picture, Joe might have a new love interest (and potential victim).

Earlier this year, it was announced that the female lead for the second season, Love Quinn, will be played by “The Haunting of Hill House” veteran actor Victoria Pedretti. Also joining the cast are Melanie Field as Sunrise, a stay-at-home mom blogger, and Magda Apanowicz as Sandy, a woman from Joe’s past. Joe might be trying to escape his past, but his past is creeping up on him little by little.

This includes the return of his mysterious ex-girlfriend, Candace Stone (Ambyr Childers). Many viewers believed she was dead during the first season, but she will be back in the second season. Hopefully, this means Joe will have to face some serious consequences for his previous actions. In addition, everyone’s favorite therapist, Dr. Nicky (John Stamos), is returning to make a few appearances.

Don’t Watch It Alone

The second season, based on Kepnes’ 2016 sequel “Hidden Bodies,” is focused more on Joe’s cruel character. You might be able to take him away from New York and where he committed his crimes, but you can’t take the stalker out of the man.

“Joe is always trying to be a good guy, but yet somehow, he’s finding himself in these thriller, horror kind of situations. It’s terrible for him, but I think it’s going to be so much fun for the audience,” said “You” creator Sera Gamble.

Gamble promises there are scenes in the show’s second season that make the first season look like it was a simple walk in the park. It’s not for the faint of heart, and there is one scene in particular that is gorier and scarier than anything shown in the first season. Gamble said, “My career is full of blood and gore and monsters.”

You might not want to watch the new season by yourself unless you like to be scared alone. “You” season 2 is sure to be creepy, and so many people can’t wait. Let the new adventure begin.
