Netflix Release First Look At 'You' Season 2 Ahead Of December 26th Release Date | 22 Words

When You hit Netflix at the end of last year, the whole world watched, entranced, as the creepiest bookshop employee ever seduced his writing-student obsession, and left a pile of corpses in his wake. While there was never going to be a happy ending for Penn Badgely's Joe, there was good news for creators of the series, as the terrifying thriller was renewed for another season. And as fans of the show eagerly await the next installment of the terrifying tale, creators have been teasing us with some very exciting news.

And now we've finally been treated to an official first look at the upcoming season. Keep scrolling to see what's in store - the last sneak peek is shocking!

Netflix's You hit our screens on December 26th of last year.

Perfect for those in the post-Christmas slump, the psychological thriller followed the ill-fated romantic pursuits of a terrifying sociopath named Joe.

It was based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Caroline Kepnes.

In the series, Jow becomes absolutely obsessed with a writing student and all-around Millenial cliche named Guinevere Beck, stopping at nothing to gain her affections.

Some of Joe's actions are pretty questionable.

And by questionable, we mean terrifying. What starts with him intensely investigating Beck's social media accounts quickly descends into some full-blown stalking. The girl seriously needed to invest in some curtains.

And it got worse...

By the end of series one, not only were all of Beck's closest acquaintances murdered but (spoiler alert), Beck had to go too. She simply knew too much about Joe's horrifying habits.

Because you can't get away with this stuff forever, right?

Although (worryingly enough), Joe seems to have managed to go on a full-blown killing spree without consequences - and there was an even more bizarre reaction to his behavior.

Because in spite of the fact Jow Goldberg was a stalker and murderer?

Yep, that's right. Pretty much the whole of the internet developed a huge crush on him. This is why we can't have nice things.

After the trail of destruction Joe left behind in New York, season two of You has had to have a change of scenery.

It first starts with Joe moving cross country to Los Angeles, with the best intentions to turn over a new leaf, and leave all the creepiness and crimes back in NYC.

And with a new city, comes a new love interest.

As Beck is (sadly) no more, Joe obviously needed a new victim - sorry, sorry, Girlfriend. Earlier this year, it was announced Love Quinn would be played by Victoria Pedretti, who you may recognize from The Haunting of Hill House.

Love Quinn isn't the only new addition.

There have been more casting announcements over the year, including Melanie Field and Magda Apanowicz. We don't know exactly what these characters will be up to - but with Joe around, we can only assume they're in for some serious misery.

But there are some recurring characters.

Joe's mysterious ex, Candace, who we believed for all of season one to be dead, will be back in season two - and hopefully mean Joe finally has to face some consequences for his actions.

And that's not all...

Fan favorite and world's worst therapist, Doctor Nicky, may make a reappearance. "Another thing that might come into play [is that] Doctor Nicky is in prison for a murder he committed. When Joe leaves his life in New York behind, he leaves behind a lot of stuff that could come back to haunt him," Gamble claims.

But one thing is for certain.

Joe's going to be unable to outrun his past for too long. You can take the man away from stalking, but you can't take the stalker out of the man, after all.

The second series of You is based on Kepnes' follow up book.

The second book, called Hidden Bodies, came out in 2016 - so if you really can't wait to find out what terrible things Joe will do next, you can read it now and reveal all.

But it's safe to say fans of series one will be in for a treat.

"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," Gamble says.

But that's not all.

Gamble has promised a scene in season two which will make the entirety of season one seem like easy watching. We can't wait.

It's clear Gamble enjoyed making the second series.

"Episode two of the season has my single favorite shot that I have been a part of in my entire career," she teases.

But it's not for the faint of heart.

If you're into truly shocking television, it sounds like You season two will be right up your street. "My career is full of blood and gore and monsters," Gamble explains.

The scene in question sounds super creepy.

"It's also beautifully shot and the director who shot the second episode lavished a lot of love. Joe is forced to do something he really doesn't want to do."

We're very excited to get creeped out by Joe once 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."

Though it sounds like there's one scene, in particular, to look out for.

"You will know it when you see it," Gamble promises.

This week, fans have finally been treated to an official first look at the upcoming season.

Joe and his ex appear to be holding hands... Though it could perhaps be a flashback? After all, the new season sees him running from Candace who's determined to teach him a lesson.

He's very clearly up to his old tricks again.

When he's got his hat on, you know he's definitely doing some stalking.

We've been treated to a sneak peek at some new faces.

Jenny Ortega joins the cast as a young con artist named Ellie who scams Joe... big mistake.

We get introduced to Joe's new obsession's friendship group.

As you'd probably predicted, according to E! News, Joe hates Love's best friends because they're "typical LA stereotypes."

Here's Love (on the far left) hanging out with her friends.

They're apparently into  "Yoga, acupuncture, psychedelics, trendy grocery stores, and lifestyle blogging." Who knows which ones will survive?

We've also got a glimpse at Joe's unlucky new Co-worker, Calvin.

According to E!, Joe now works in a grocery store/ cafe named Anavri after store manager, Calvin, hires him.

Here's our first look at Joe's suspecting new neighbor...

Investigative journalist, Delilah, played by Carmela Zumbado, becomes very suspicious of Joe and his chilling antics. Our advice would be to escape while you can, Delilah...

Of course, we get to see him in full-blown terrifying stalker mode.

Probably the most anticipated of all the first look snaps is to see him up to his usual tricks after falling in love with his new obsession - aptly named Love.

But the biggest question is: When will we be able to watch it?
