Netflix’s You has been a major topic of conversation since it aired, and it’s easy to see why. But beware, because there are major spoilers ahead as we examine what’s going to happen in Season 2.
Featuring Gossip Girl‘s Penn Badgley in the lead role as stalker-turned-murderer, bookstore manager, and seemingly perfect boyfriend Joe Goldberg, You treads the fine line between rom-com and horror with aplomb, proving that not all romantic prospects are what they seem. To recap: throughout Season 1, Joe pursues, and eventually wins, promising writer Beck, but only by gradually eliminating several people from her life first—including Shay Mitchell‘s Peach Salinger. And when the truth catches up to him, there are some pretty violent consequences.
Season 2 is set in Los Angeles.
Anyone who’s read the books on which You is based will already know that the second part of Joe Goldberg’s story moves from New York to Los Angeles.
Speaking to the Radio Times, Elizabeth Lail, who portrayed Beck in Season 1, revealed, “I think they’re shooting it in LA, and so nothing will be the same. Hardly anything. It’ll be a whole other story.” Writer Sera Gamble also told Metro.co.uk, “We are prepping to shoot Season 2 now, in Los Angeles. Which is also where the second book of the series takes place.”
