If this YOU Season 2 teaser is anything to go by, there are some big surprises in store. It’s revealed right at the top that Joe has traded stuffy old New York City for bright, spacious Los Angeles. No surprise there considering Joe has one too many skeletons — literal and figurative — in his closet; it makes sense he’d get out of the city as soon as possible. It also makes sense considering the YOU Season 1 finale included the return of Candace, who came prepared with threats to expose Joe for the monster he is.
Joe has also, apparently, changed his name. At the end of the teaser, which unfolds with him critiquing different kinds of Angelenos — the Instagram influencer, the chilled-out surfer, the screenwriter — as he stands in line at a coffee shop, he gives the barista his name. No, it’s not Joe; it’s “Will.” Well! How ’bout that? Someone is in full-on deception mode.
In Season 2, Joe will set his sights on a new obsession, a chef named Love played by Pedretti. Joe will also be trying to outrun his past, with his ex Candace on his tail and some loose ends still needing to be tied up. If the plot of Season 2 wasn’t enticing enough, this teaser reminds us we have a serious nail-biter on our hands.
YOU Season 2 arrives on Netflix on Thursday, December 26.
