If you haven’t heard yet, the second season of the Netflix Original series You came out on Dec. 26 and it has American thriller fans raving.

The main character is Joe Goldberg, played by actor Penn Badgley, while Beck Guinevere, is played by actress Elizabeth Dean Lail. The first season, which was released in 2018, includes more famous actors like Luca Padovan, who played in the Super wings a children’s film and Shay Mitchell who starred in Pretty Little Liars a popular TV drama series.

The first season is based on the 2014 novel written by Caroline Kepnes and follows Goldberg, a New York bookstore manager and serial killer who falls in love with Beck, who was a customer, and quickly develops an extreme, toxic, and delusional obsession. Throughout the season, the audience notices Goldberg will go to great lengths to keep Beck out of “harm’s way.” After developing an unhealthy obsession with Beck, he continues to protect their relationship from deemed potential threats.

After the shows first season airing, it was given an average rating of 7.38 out of 10, 93% on Rotten Tomatoes*, and an audience score of 80%. Top critic Anna Leszkiewicz, who published at the following Tomato meter-approved publications, said “Its sparklingly cruel sense of humor is what makes it compulsively watchable — through Joe’s sardonic narration, the show displays a rare eagerness to ridicule its own characters.”

The storyline switches up during season two when Goldberg moves to Los Angeles to start a new life with a new clean slate. He later on comes across his new muse Love Quinn, played by actress Victoria Pedretti. Although he acknowledges his feelings for Quinn, he’s determined not to act on his feelings to prevent past mistakes.

As the audience is introduced to this new character, its apparent that Quinn has suspicious intentions. She revealed her true self when she reacts violently and is easily jealous. Ending the season, Goldberg settled in the suburbs with his new lover but retreated back to his haunting habits. The last episode leaves the audience in suspense for the upcoming third season.

Students at Taft like Senior Destiny Cruz (Div. 047) loved the second season of You saying “The second season of ‘You’ was very unexpected. I didn’t see anything coming. I really thought the Beck and Joe were going to last for a couple seasons not just one. To top it off I think the season was well developed and had a ton of plot twists.”

The second season of this dark drama series had an average rating of 8.01 out of 10 and had 89% of positive reviews according to Rotten Tomatoes. Audience rated the series 4.2 out of 5. Top critic, Hannah Giorgis, who is a staff writer at The Atlantic, where she covers pop culture and cinematic films, says “a self-aware work of melodrama, You combines the best elements of murder-mystery series, Millennial sitcoms, and revenge fantasies.”
