One of the great benefits of streaming platforms is that they have put an end to the "There was sweet feck all worth watching on the telly over the Christmas," complaint. TV boredom is a thing of the past and the even better news is that Netflix has just announced the second season of You will be landing on December 26th.
Picture the scene: You roll out of bed in the late AM, tuck straight into a tin of Roses and set yourself up for an all-time great binge as the sadistic Joe Goldberg brings us deeper and deeper into his warped mind.
Season one of You was peak chewing gum television. It was bonkers yet completely engrossing. Did it win any hoity-toity awards? No. Did the drama and scandal of each episode leave you clamouring for more? Absofuckinglutely!
In their season two premiere announcement, Netflix explain its premise:
"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 - 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. Is history repeating? Or will this time be the real thing? Joe’s just crazy enough to risk finding out."
Based on Caroline Kepnes' novel of the same name, You was originally released on the Lifetime television channel in the US before finding on second life on Netflix, where it has been streamed over 40 million times. The new season has been developed solely for Netflix and is based on Kepnes' sequel novel "Hidden Bodies."
