Netflix’s Original Series have gained more and more popularity over the years and, “You,” directed by Lee Toland Krieger, is no exception. After a year of anticipation, the popular thriller is back for its second season and is even more suspenseful than the last. 

Season one was released in early September  2018 and had millions of viewers hooked on the dark, yet passionate actions of Joe Goldberg, who will do anything for the people he loves. In previous relationships, Goldberg’s love (perhaps more accurately described as an obsession) was not enough to overpower his dark and foggy mind and because of this, he ended up hurting the people he cared about. His idea of love is altered because of his own family relationships. He grew up with an unstable family and by the time Goldberg was nine, he was moving from group home to group home.

The show carries the same suspenseful and mysterious elements and characters in season two. The second season stars Penn Badgley playing Joe Goldberg and Victoria Pedretti playing Love Quinn, who seemingly lives a comfortable life but has surprising secrets of her own. The two’s love story starts when Goldberg moves across the country from New York to Los Angeles in an attempt to escape one of his vengeful exes and bad memories with his most recent ex. Once in L.A., Goldberg takes a job at the grocery store where Quinn works as a chef and immediately starts fixating over her. The two begin, what can only be described as, a perfectly imperfect relationship. However, Goldberg’s infatuation turns into an obsession once again. He cannot escape his sinister past and he finds himself repeating past mistakes.

Other guest stars are also what makes this show such a hit. Multiple appearances from characters played by Jenna Ortega, John Stamos and Chris D’Elia have increased the viewer following. The fairly new show, “You,” has also received an impressive 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has even made the list of Netflix’s Top 10 Original Movies and TV shows coming in at number four with over 40 million viewers. The twists and turns, along with the endless shockers will make, “You,” your new guilty pleasure.
