What to expect from You season 2: Insight from Penn Badgley

Fans are desperately waiting for You season 2. Season 2 will primarily be focussing on Joe Goldberg’s twisted early life, and according to Penn Badgley, things are going to get ugly. 

Questions Among Questions

Is the beloved Beth really dead? What happened to Dr. Nicky? Did Candace come back or was Joe just imagining her? I have the answers… well, at least some of them. You season 2 will be addressing the cliffhangers of the first season and here’s what to expect.

New York to LA

To start, Joe aka the one, the only, Penn Badgley will move from New York to Los Angeles.  We will get an insight into his messy early life that made him the notorious stalker he has become today.

Beck’s Fate

Sadly, Beck is dead and she is not coming back. So if you were hoping for Beck to return, it’s a hard no.

Penn said, “There’s a revisitation of that 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”


During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Badgley revealed details about the upcoming season and added that it will be disgusting.

Stating, “There are somethings I’ve done with prosthetic bodies in this season that were kind of nauseating as I did them, I will say that.”

Who we can expect back

Although Beck is a goner, we can expect Candace, Nicky, and Joe’s new love interest, Victoria Pedretti who plays in Netflix’s Haunting of Hill House. Victoria is set to play Love Quinn, an aspiring chef who stays away from social media. That leaves it difficult for Joe to stalk her like he did Beck.


This seasons plot is based on another Caroline Kepnes books, Hidden Bodies. If you have read the book then you have a general idea of what to expect. The production of You kicked off four months ago and we have the idea that Season 2 will be released later this year. Will you be watching?
