Since Netflix's popular psychological thriller You debuted on its platform on December 26, 2018, fans have been patiently waiting for a follow-up to Joe Goldberg and his chilling crimes.
Last month, the streaming giant confirmed the release date for the second season as December 26 2019 - and Netflix has now released a brand new trailer.Check out the gripping new trailer here:
"You know, love has taken me to some pretty dark places," Joe's voice can be heard in the opening seconds of the trailer, as the camera pans to several characters who we can only assume are the sick protagonist's latest victims.
"But Los Angeles has got to be as dark as it gets," he continues. "Your followers see an image and imagine you're on top of the world. What they don't see is the effort you're putting into this fantasy."
In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, the show's producer, Sera Gamble explained that Joe will be moving from New York City to LA for the second season:
"We'll be going into Joe's early life in season two, and naturally we want to know more and move around in his entire life. I will say that the whole time we're in the writers' room talking about what that story could be, or what flashbacks or glimpses into his life we might catch, this has been a guiding principle for us; he had a pretty terrible childhood and that does contribute to who he is as an adult. But we also wanted to make it clear that a lot of us had shitty childhoods and most of us don't do what Joe Goldberg does - we're trying to walk that line."
Gamble also said of You's chilling lead character:
"He doesn't want to kill anyone ever again, but probably in season two he will end up killing someone. He's absolutely heartbroken after Beck and he and also we're keenly aware that people are coming to the show after binging season 1 and have all fallen in love with Elisabeth Lail [Beck]. I think it would be stupid to just slot someone else in. Season one, we're constructing a story that really takes that into account, and no one is going to shove anything down the audience's throats. Joe is really contending with what happened in season one."
