Netflix finally announces the release date for 'You' season 2

scandal 30/09/2019

For everyone who binged season one of 'You' the first week it came out on Netflix, we've got some good news.

The wait is nearly over for season two!

Based on a novel by Caroline Kepnes, the first series was added to Netflix towards the end of last year. It follows bookstore manager Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) as he becomes wildly, worryingly obsessed with a woman called Guinevere (Elizabeth Lail).

The second season will be loosely based on the novel's sequel, Hidden Bodies, and will see Joe move from New York to LA - through no choice of his own.

And finally, we know when season two will be dropping Netflix.

According to Girlfriend, Netflix US posted a breakdown of how many sleeps until some of our favourite shows, including The Crown and End of the f***ing World, would be returning.

The post, from earlier this month, also showed season two of 'You' was just 110 sleeps which, at the time worked out to December 30th!

Speaking of the new season, co-creator Sera Gamble told Cosmopolitan that we'll get more insight into Joe's early life.

"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."
