'You' season two is going to be 'gorier and scarier' than season one and we're not ready

The popular Netflix series You left us with a lot of questions. Did Karen ever find love after her fling (close call) with Joe? Were we actually meant to like Beck? And what actually happened to Candace?

The streaming service confirmed that the thriller would be back with a second season, but so far there haven't been many clues about what we can expect.

In the first season, we saw bookshop manager Joe Goldberg stalking customer Guinevere Beck, hacking into her social media accounts and following her around, wanking in bushes outside her flat, and murdering her ex, best friend and therapist before killing her. While it appeared that he had also offed his ex-girlfriend, the mysterious Candace, she turned up on his doorstep at the very end and told him they had 'unfinished business'.


Filming for the second instalment is underway, and Netflix has promised that it'll be available to watch soon but that was all we knew - until showrunner and co-creator Sera Gamble revealed that the upcoming season will be 'gorier and scarier' than the first. 


She told LadBible: 'At least one scene comes to mind that's gorier and scarier than anything we had in season one.

'Joe is new to Los Angeles fully intending to start over a new leaf and never being forced to do bad things again.

'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.'

A new character, Love Quinn, will be played by Haunting of Hill House's Victoria Pedretti (aka Nell, RIP), and it's rumoured that she will become Joe's newest obsession.

Sera continued: 'Love is very different from Beck. We were aware going into season two of the show, there was something very special about Beck the way that we told it in season one.

'We knew that it wouldn't be possible to repeat it as the audience is very much onto Joe now and will see through him. The way that Love enters his life is very different. His interest in her and his expectation is also very different. I think it will be fun and interesting.'

Fun and interesting/terrifying. Will we be able to sleep at night after watching it?

Guess we'll have to wait until it's released to find out. Gulp.
