The American psychological thriller You is returning with season 2 on Netflix in few months. Season 1 of You was initially run by Lifetime and season 2 was also ordered by them. However, towards the end of 2018 it was announced that series will move to Original with its season 2. Now, it will be officially declared as Netflix Original Series. Here’s what we know about Netflix’s You Season 2 release date, plot line and the cast!
Synopsis For Netflix’s You Season 2
Season 1 of You left us hanging with quite a cliffhanger. It was kind of a huge surprise, however, for a moment it also reminded me of the typical soap dramas when one character dies then comes back alive. To counter this thought, we all have to give credit to the brains behind the book and show. What happened to Candace? It was never disclosed throughout the season. It was always assumed that Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) killed Candace (Ambyr Childers), but that was not the case!
Netflix’sYou Season 2 will follow the storyline of Hidden Bodies; next book in line. If you do not know it yet, the series is based on the books by Caroline Kepnes. It is confirmed that season 2 is shot in Los Angeles, just like book 2 is based on Los Angeles.
Joe moves to LA in order to start fresh and put his past behind him. He falls in love with another girl there however his past keeps haunting him. He tries his level best to hide his past from the newly found love: Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti). Quinn is an aspiring chef and Joe tries to keep her happy. But what will happen if the past unfolds and Quinn realizes she is dating a murderer? We will have to wait till season 2 comes out. (Or read the book if curiosity is killing you.)
Release Date of Netflix You Season 2
The release date has not been announced by Netflix yet and there is no sign of a trailer. Since the renewal of the second season was confirmed by the show runners they started off production in February 2019. It took them about a whole year to finalize the first season. So, we can expect the release date of Netflix You Season 2 to come by the end of 2019 or early 2020.
Who Will Be in the Cast
The trailer might be out in a few months but we do know who is in the cast. Of course, Penn Badgley would be returning. Moreover, the new cast of You includes Victoria Pedretti, James Scully, Jenna Ortega, Marielle Scott, Melanie Field, and Magda Apanowicz. Ambyr Childers will continue her character from season 1.
