The moment we’ve been waiting for finally came this week. After an agonizing countdown, You season 2 dropped on Netflix in what was probably the best belated Christmas gift we could have asked for – leaving many fans in a full-blown Joe Goldberg induced frenzy.
As viewers sink their teeth into the new offering, it seems they’re absolutely delighted with just about everything – except for that totally gruesome meat grinder scene…
But if that wasn’t enough, well it would appear the Penn Badgley just accidentally revealed plans for season three.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 can see in the trailer at the bottom.
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.
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.
It was announced that 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.
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.
“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.
Gamble has promised a scene in season 2 which will make the entirety of season one seem like easy watching. Keep scrolling to catch a glimpse of the trailer.
“Episode two of the season has my single favorite shot that I have been a part of in my entire career,” she teases.
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.
“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.”
“You will know it when you see it,” Gamble promises.
After an agonizing wait, You season 2 finally dropped on Netflix.
And fans have shown no hesitation in getting stuck into binging the latest offering.
It would appear that the gruesome scene has come to light after countless viewers took to Twitter claiming it had given them nightmares and made them come close to puking. Yuk.
Spoilers incoming by the way.
Definition: A meat grinder (also called a “meat mincer” in the UK) is a kitchen appliance for fine chopping (‘mincing’) and/or mixing of raw or cooked meat, fish, vegetables or similar food.
If you’re making burgers then great. But if you’re sticking a body-part into it. Well yeah… Oh boy!
Well, in the second episode of season two, after stealing Will’s identity Joe finds himself in a spot of bother over some debt he’s inherited with his new persona.
When he was alive, Will owed a man called Jasper a fair bit of cash, and Jasper ends up cutting the tip of Joe’s finger off as a threat.
Unfortunately for Jasper, Joe doesn’t have that kind of money so instead of paying him off he murders him before placing his corpse through the barbarism of a meat grinder.
At some point we all have to wave goodbye to existence and enter into the other world. Or the nothingness.
There are many ways to die and many ways to be disposed of.
I’m pretty easy, but I just hope I’m not drove through a meat grinder into a mashed-up mincemeat of what was once my flesh and bone.
The reviews are in and people seem to be well and truly raving about the second installment.
You Season 2 is available to stream on Netflix now.
Scroll on for all the details of the upcoming Gossip Girl remake. There’s someone very exciting set to be reprising their role…
We’re all full to the brim with cheese, pate, turkey, and booze. We’re wondering why it’s acceptable to have a prosecco with breakfast. But it’s fine isn’t it? It’s the best week of the year!
So how could it possibly get better?
Well as you’re feasting your eyes on You season two, and stuffing your throat with another slice of pie, check this out.
Yep that’s right. The main actor from You may have just accidentally revealed that season three is on the horizon!
We’ve only had season two for a matter of days!
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the actor slipped up while talking about the possibility of a female killer.
She doesn’t appear to be the same kind of person. She doesn’t appear to be the same kind of predator. She doesn’t appear to be the same kind of… you know, dare I say, in the third season – oh, god!
He slapped his head and said:
I literally know nothing about the third season.
Technically I can’t… I mean, like, unofficially?
And so did our excitement for the 20s!
