Netflix Original 'You' Is Officially Getting A Second Season

Netflix original series You only dropped on the streaming giant on Boxing Day, but it has already been renewed for a second season.

If you haven't already binged on the entire series, then quite frankly what are you doing with your life? However, we'll do a little recap...

The story sees Penn Badgley aka Gossip Girl's Dan Humphrey star as creepy Joe Goldberg, the manager of a book store, who falls madly in love with Elizabeth Lail's character, Beck, before proceeding to stalk her.

Season one is based on the book of the same name by Caroline Kepnes, which also has a sequel called Hidden Bodies.

Now it's being reported the second series is going into production to continue Joe's story, echoing the events laid out in the second book.

In the second book, Joe moves to LA to start a new life for himself, setting on a new search for love (or obsession) and ending up facing some childhood trauma.

Series showrunner Sera Gamble gave away a few teasers about some possibilities of the upcoming series.

She told the Express: "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 anytime.

"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."

She added: "It's too soon to say definitely whether John Stamos will return in season two, but we have been talking a lot about the character and we're excited to keep telling that story."
