It's Official - Season Two Of Netflix’s You Has Started Production

Netflix's TV show adaptation of the psychological thriller You was a true sleeper hit of last year, so it's no surprise fans were excited to hear Joe (Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley) and his creepy stalker antics will be back for a second season.

The news was further confirmed thanks to a tweet posted by Netflix on Friday, showing the cast together for their first read-through of next season's script.

The pics were uploaded alongside the caption: "And we're back! First table read for @YouNetflix Season 2!"

Hoorah! Not only are fans flocking to Twitter to express their delight at the news, but the pictures also offer a little insight into the new faces entering Joe's life in the second round. Before we go any further, let us just warn you... SPOILER ALERT!

Okay, now that's out of the way, as you can see, we've got Haunting of Hill House star Victoria Pedretti playing Love Quinn - who's set to be the new female lead and Joe's next love interest/victim.

In the second photo you've got Ambyr Childers, who will reprise her role as Joe's ex Candace. Here's hoping the story will finally give us some answers as to what happened between those two (not to mention an explanation as to why she's not dead).

Season two will see Joe moving to LA where he's hoping to start afresh, so it's likely that he will meet Love when he gets there. But as anyone who's watched season one will know, Joe's got an awful lot of skeletons hidden in his closet, some of them bursting to come out.

As confirmed by co-creator and co-showrunner Sera Gamble in an interview with Vulture, "every time a butterfly flaps its wings in season one, by season two there's a tsunami."

The only bummer is that we don't have an official air date yet, but we do know Netflix don't muck about, and on Instagram the show recently teased: "All episodes of You now on @netflix. Season 2 coming soon."

Although 'soon' is frustratingly unclear, at least these recent production shots show that it is happening and we will get to see season two in the near future.

While you wait, there are tonnes of incredible shows returning in 2019: season three of The Handmaid's Tale, season two of Killing Eve, not to mention season five of Peaky Blinders. Popcorn at the ready!
