Penn Badgley reveals Beck will return for 'You' season two

Netflix's critically acclaimed series, You, has been one of the most talked-about shows of the year.

It centres around a bookshop owner turned serial killer, Joe, who, after a chance encounter, becomes obsessed with an aspiring writer, Beck. He then goes to extreme lengths to become a part of her life and eventually her boyfriend - only to kill her after she discovers evidence of his murderous ways (namely, her ex Benji's teeth) in his bathroom.

Now, Penn Badgley, who plays Joe, has revealed that despite her death, Beck will be returning for season two.

Haven't seen You yet? Check out the trailer for season one below: 

The actor, who also starred in Gossip Girl, said that his love interest's gruesome death would come back to haunt Joe in an interview with  ETOnline: "There's a revisitation of that [the murder] with Joe in the second episode of the second season, where you get to see a bit more of the hard reality of what he did to her."

"Whereas you're sort of, for better or worse, mercifully saved from seeing that in the first season. That always haunts me, thinking of Beck. It's like, 'You really did that in the first season, and we're still going, and people really like this guy?!' That's disturbing."

"In his mind, she's not even dead. I'm not giving you some kind of spoiler, she's dead," he continued. "In his mind, everyone's still alive because the pain that he feels he suffered at their hand is very much still alive."

Released on Boxing Day, the show is an adaptation of a book of the same name, written by Caroline Kepnes.

Just like the TV series, it has a sequel, Hidden Bodies, which follows Joe's journey to LA to start over after his killing spree.

Actress, Victoria Pedretti, has been confirmed to play Love Quinn, Joe's new love interest in the second series - an aspiring chef, who, unlike Beck, has grown tired of a world obsessed with social media, and spends her days working a dead-end job.

Showrunner, Sera Gamble, has also given a few teasers about series two.

In an interview with the Express, she said: "Part of the fun of continuing the story is that the loose ends from Joe's past are still dangling and could come back to him at any time."

"He is very worried about the fact that Peach Salinger's family has hired people to investigate her alleged suicide, and there is evidence potentially still at her house from season one.

If you look at every act of violence that he does in season one, that is potentially something that could come back and bite him. And Dr. Nicky is in prison and he is ardently protesting his innocence."

There's currently no release date, but one thing's for sure - it's shaping up to be just as riveting as series one!
