Season two of Netflix's You is going to be 'gorier and scarier' than season one

Season two of Netflix's YOU is going to be "gorier and scarier" then the first, according to the series' showrunner and co-creator.

The first season of the thriller had fans hooked from the moment it landed on Stephen's Day last year.

It followed book shop manager/killer/stalker Joe Goldberg, who developed a dangerous - and deadly - obsession with Guinevere Beck.

Production on the second season is underway, with the series' Instagram profile promising it will be arriving "soon".

And if that wasn't enough, showrunner and co-creator Sera Gamble has revealed that the second season will be "gorier and scarier" than the first was. 

She told LadBible:

"At least one scene comes to mind that's gorier and scarier than anything we had in season one.

"Joe is new to Los Angeles fully intending to start over a new leaf and never being forced to do bad things again.

"Joe is always trying to be a good guy but yet somehow he's finding himself in these thriller, horror kind of situations. It's terrible for him but I think it's going to be so much fun for the audience."

She also spoke about the new character, Love Quinn, who will be played by Haunting of Hill House's Victoria Pedretti - and is widely tipped to be the "new Beck".

However, Gamble emphasised that the two characters are "very different."

She continued:

"Love is very different from Beck. We were aware going into season two of the show, there was something very special about Beck the way that we told it in season one.

"We knew that it wouldn't be possible to repeat it as the audience is very much onto Joe now and will see through him. The way that Love enters his life is very different. His interest in her and his expectation is also very different. I think it will be fun and interesting."
