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 many can’t look past one thing – and it’s caused Twitter to be flooded with memes.
Keep scrolling to see what people are finding so hilarious.
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.
“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.”
“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 yesterday.
And fans have shown no hesitation in getting stuck into binging the latest offering.
The reviews are in and people seem to be well and truly raving about the second installment.
Penn Badgley, who plays resident psycho, Joe in the series, was best known for his role as Dan Humphrey in Gossip Girl (which is actually coming back to screens very soon – get all the details at the end) and many fans are pointing out how You is just Gossip Girl 2.0.
Many can’t believe that You’s Joe Goldberg and Gossip Girl’s Dan Humprey are different characters…
Fans find their personality so similar that they are convinced they are just the same person.
Just wait until you see the last one…
The Gossip Girl memes kept on rolling in.
Also, how crazy was A Simple Favor starring Blake Lively?
The resemblance is definitely uncanny.
Looks like many people can’t look past the star’s former role.
Given the fact that Dan was Gossip Girl and a stalker…
We’re not entirely surprised either.
This all makes sense now.
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…
