The psychological thriller was, unsurprisingly, a hit with followers, who have been waiting for the greater part of a year for season two, and lo and behold; it’s nearly here! Yesterday, the “YOU” Twitter account announced that the new season would premiere on December 26th.
The show’s producer, Sera Gamble, confirmed that the second season would be loosely based on the original novel’s sequel, Hidden Bodies. Talking to Cosmopolitan, Gamble announced that Joe would be relocating from New York City to LA.
“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,” she said.

“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.”
“When we last saw Joe his heart was tragically broken and his past just caught up with him in the form of long-lost ex-girlfriend Candace (Ambyr Childers) – a woman now hell-bent on teaching him a lesson.”
“Season two finds him on the run from Candace – leaving New York City for his own personal hell: Los Angeles. He’s fresh out of an intense relationship that ended in murder. The last thing he expects is to meet an incredible new woman but he’s falling in love again – with a woman named Love (Victoria Pedretti). Is history repeating? Or will this time be the real thing? Joe’s just crazy enough to risk finding out.”
You season two will be available to watch on Netflix from December 26.
