According to Netflix, forty million people watched the dark thriller ‘You’ in the first month it was released. That’s a hell of a lot of people to shock with the return of Beck in season two, confirmed to be released in late 2019, after the series finished filming the second season in June earlier this year.
The creepy but cute looking protagonist, Joe Goldberg, was seen grabbing Beck at the end of season one, as she attempted to flee the locked basement of his bookstore. Admittedly, I figured that would happen, it was either that or she’d trip over dust or something.
It was Penn, who plays serial killer, Joe Goldberg, that hinted the possible return of his on-screen love interest Guinevere Beck, (played by Elizabeth Lail) will return for of number of flashback sequences.
Speaking to ETOnline, the former Gossip Girl star revealed: “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. In his mind, everyone’s still alive because the pain that he feels he suffered at their hand is very much still alive.”
The second season will be based loosely on Caroline Kepnes’ book Hidden Bodies and will follow Joe to LA, as he begins a new life in search for love (if you can call it that), ending up facing some childhood trauma.
It’s also been confirmed that Haunting of Hill House star Victoria Pedretti will also be featuring in season two – playing a central role as an aspiring chef working in a high-end grocery store.
At the end of season one, we were left with the return of Candace, (Joe’s former lover, thought to be dead), as she entered his book store wearing a hoodie. Her final words to Joe, which ended the season were: “I think we have some unfinished business to talk about.” I mean holy crap, talk about suspense. Things are going down in season two, I can just sense it.
Keep your eyes peeled on Netflix over the following months to come. We know Joe Goldberg is returning to our screens later in the year, it’s just a matter of when.
