You Season 2 Lands On Netflix On Boxing Day

In a bid to make sure all your Boxing Day binge-watching dreams come true, Netflix is due to drop the second season to its relentlessly creepy psychological thriller You.

The streaming site confirmed the show's long-awaited return earlier this year, announcing it would be back on 26 December. Thousands of viewers will be tuning in to find out what's next after season one's gripping cliffhanger.

Based on the novel by Caroline Kepnes, the first season followed bookstore manager Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) as he became dangerously obsessed with an aspiring writer named Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail).

As his obsession intensified, he soon turned to social media to track her every move and eliminate any obstacles that might stand in the way of their romance.

It didn't take long until things escalated, uncovering some sinister revelations about Joe's past along the way.

The finale of the show, which dropped in November 2018, had us all screaming at our TVs, desperate to find out what comes next - and whether Joe will be held accountable for his actions.

The second season will be loosely based on the novel's sequel Hidden Bodies and will see Joe move from New York to Los Angeles.

The cast also includes Ambyr Childers, James Scully, Carmela Zumbado, Jenna Ortega and Chris D'Elia.

According to the show's official 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.

"Season two finds him 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."

Speaking about what's in store for Joe in round two, Badgley told Entertainment Weekly: "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."

There are a lot of questions to be answered - but thankfully, the wait is almost over. Soon you'll be able to sit back, crack open a cold one, and get ready to delve into the twisted world of Badgley's psychopathic Casanova.

You season 2 is available to stream on Netflix from Boxing Day (26 December).
