Netflix is dropping 'You' season 2 today

The highly-anticipated second season of You is dropping on Netflix today.

In case your memory needs refreshing, the first season had fans on the edge of their seats as they watched Joe Goldberg, a New York-based bookstore manager, grow increasingly obsessed with a woman he meets in his store, Guinevere Beck, an aspiring writer.

He then goes on a mission to eliminate - in the most literal sense of the word - everyone and everything standing between them being together, using social media in a way that will have you deleting your Facebook account yesterday.

This is the trailer for season two of You: 

Without giving away too many spoilers, Joe is haunted by an old flame at the end of season one, and if the show's official synopsis is anything to go by, he could finally have to pay the price for his actions.

According to the synopsis: "When we last saw Joe his heart was tragically broken and his past just caught up with him in the form of long-lost ex-girlfriend Candace (Ambyr Childers) - a woman now hell-bent on teaching him a lesson."

And if you haven't seen it yet, this is the trailer for season one: 

The synopsis continues: "Season two finds [Joe] on the run from Candace - leaving New York City for his own personal hell: Los Angeles.

"He's fresh out of an intense relationship that ended in murder. The last thing he expects is to meet an incredible new woman but he's falling in love again - with a woman named Love (Victoria Pedretti).

Is history repeating? Or will this time be the real thing? Joe's just crazy enough to risk finding out."

The second season of the psychological thriller has been pitched as a lot darker than the first and will star Penn Badgley, Ambyr Childers, James Scully, Carmela Zumbado, Jenna Ortega and Chris D'Elia.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Penn Badgley, who plays Goldberg, said: "In the first episode, he's struggling to conceive of the fact that she's [Candace] alive.

"He's unhinged because of how much he doesn't understand about what he's done and who she is."

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to make a leftover Turkey sandwich and get stuck into what's likely to be some seriously thrilling Boxing Day viewing.
