Take one bookstore, a creepy basement and a serial-killing bookworm, and you have all the makings of a cult Netflix show, as we discovered when we spent our Christmas break binge-watching the psychological thriller You.
Good news for our Netflix habit then, because the streaming platform have confirmed that the show will be returning for a second run. In fact, we can now confirm that filming has officially started after Netflix shared this behind-the-scenes snap on set. The streaming service gave us a glimpse of their very first table reading, and we spy Joe Goldberg and his ex girlfriend, Candace, on set.
Based on Caroline Kepnes' bestselling novel and follow-up Hidden Bodies, we've been eagerly on the hunt for clues as to where the story will go after Guinevere Beck's tragic death.
Penn Badgley has a video message for fans of his serial killer character in Netflix's 'You'
Here's everything you need to know about the second season for far...
*major spoilers ahead*
Who's returning and who is joining the cast?
First things first: Penn Badgley will be back as the now newly-single serial killer Joe Goldberg, alongside a host of characters that survived his murdering spree.
Ambyr Childers returns as Joe's ex-girlfriend Candace, who is very much alive and kicking despite his best intentions to bump her off.
"She’s not nearly as dead as [Joe] thought," co-writer Sera Gamble revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair.
"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 anytime," Gamble continued in an interview with .
"If you look at every act of violence that he does in season one, that is potentially something that could come back and bite him."
There will also be some new additions joining the cast who could potentially fall victim to Joe's terrifying wrath.
Jane The Virgin's Jenna Ortega is being cast as a teenager named Ellie who wanders around the city in search of cons to pull and men to scam. Watch out, Joe.
Joe's new love interest, Love, is The Haunting of Hill House's Victoria Pedretti and her brother will be played by Heather's James Scully who won't exactly see eye-to-eye with Joe.
And while we thought Beck (played by Elizabeth Lail) was killed off by Joe, eagle-eyed fans are convinced all is not as it seems.
Fans were quick to note something very subtle in an episode of season 1. As viewers will remember, Joe is left completely flabbergasted by the return of his ex-girlfriend, Candace, who he presumed he murdered. Joe is seen saying: "Candace, you're...", before she adds: "Alive." And in an earlier episode, when he's hallucinating about Candace, she says: “Are you gonna leave Beck alone, or will she end up like me?" Fans are therefore convinced that Joe may think he killed Beck when he actually didn't.. just like Candace.
We'll have to wait until season 2 to find out whether they're correct.
Who IS Elizabeth Lail? Why we're going to be seeing a lot more of Beck from Netflix's 'You'
Also returning into the mix are Joe's loyal bookstore clerk Ethan (Zach Cherry) and Beck's best friends Lynn (Nicole King) and Annika (Kathryn Gallagher), as well as Blythe, Beck's classmate from Columbia University (Hari Nef), plus his young neighbour Paco (Luca Padovan), and his mother (Victoria Cartagena).
As for Dr. Nicky (played by John Stamos), Beck's cheating therapist who was framed for her murder, Gamble said, "It's too soon to say definitely whether John Stamos will return in season two but we have been talking a lot about the character and we're excited to keep telling that story."
What's the plot?
Watch out, West Coast: it looks like Joe is on the move.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Gamble revealed that while the second season won't be a faithful adaptation of Caroline Kepnes's serial Hidden Bodies, the show will see Joe relocate from New York in a bid to "put his past behind him", just like in the novel.
"Joe can’t stop looking over his shoulder," Gamble told The Hollywood Reporter. The problem with hidden bodies is that they don’t always stay that way. They re-emerge, like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: true love.
"And when he finds it in a darkened room in Soho House, he’s more desperate than ever to keep his secrets buried. He doesn’t want to hurt his new girlfriend – he wants to be with her forever.
"But if she ever finds out what he’s done, he may not have a choice."
When will it air?
There's no word yet on when the second season will air, but according to the show's Instagram page, the show is "coming soon". Until then, here's some brilliant Netflix shows you can enjoy...
