Earlier this year, Netflix accidentally leaked that the show would return on December 30th, teasing it was only 110 days away from their initial tweet in September.
Now, it seems like the smart minds at Netflix have realised that people are way more likely to binge while they're feeling sad after Christmas is over... not right before NYE where they just want to go out and party.
The show, based on the novel by Caroline Kepnes, follows NYC bookstore manager Joe Goldberg (played by Gossip Girls' Penn Badgley), as he becomes wildly obsessed with Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail).
While he supposedly SPOILER ALERT ends up murdering her at the end of season one, the second book, titled Hidden Bodies, shows the aftermath.
We will see Joe move from New York City to Los Angeles to start his life over. However, if you recall from the end of season one, Joe's ex-girlfriend (who was also presumed dead), Candace Stone (Ambyr Childers), returns.
Producer Sera Gamble revealed in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan that everyting "becomes clear" in the first episode.
"We'll be going into Joe's early life in season two, and naturally we want to know more and move around in his entire life.
"I will say that the whole time we're in the writers' room talking about what that story could be, or what flashbacks or glimpses into his life we might catch, this has been a guiding principle for us; he had a pretty terrible childhood and that does contribute to who he is as an adult.
"But we also wanted to make it clear that a lot of us had shitty childhoods and most of us don't do what Joe Goldberg does - we're trying to walk that line."
As for Penn, he has admitted how hard it was for him to film some of the scenes.
In an interview with ET Online, Penn admittied: "It’s the ones where I’m trying to embody Joe really living in that house, really having these rare moments of coming to terms with what he’s done, and that’s far more difficult than committing a certain act in a moment, whether it’s hitting Shay Mitchell over the head with a rock or stabbing someone in the neck.
"There are some things I’ve done with prosthetic bodies in this [new] season that were kind of nauseating as I did them, I will say that."
Who will be in the new season??
Aside from Penn returning as Joe, and Ambyr as Candace, there will be some new faces this season.
The Haunting of Hill House star Victoria Pedretti has been cast to play Joe's new love-interest, named Love!
Entertainment Weekly has reported that Victoria will play the polar opposite of Beck.
"An aspiring chef working as a produce manager in a high-end grocery store. Love is uninterested in the world of social media, branding and self-promotion, focused instead on leading an interesting life. She is also tending to a deep grief, and when she meets Joe Goldberg, she senses a shared knowledge of profound, life-changing loss."
Jane the Virgin star Jenna Ortega and Heathers star James Scully have joined season two as well.
Jenna will play Ellie, and according to Deadline, Ellie is "a teenager who grew up fast in the big city, [who] likes to act and appear older than her years. Secretly living with minimal supervision or nurturing in her life, she must take care of herself and isn’t afraid to get into murky waters to make a little cash. This includes working cons on the adults around her, including Joe Goldberg."
James will be playing Forty Quinn, Love's brother.
Deadline reports that Forty is as "confident, opinionated and privileged — at his best, a charming buddy; at his worst, a razor-sharp bully. He’s said to be in the midst of completing a 12-step program for drug and alcohol abuse and relies heavily on Love’s support," however "it never takes much of a shove for him to fall back off the wagon.
Bring on Boxing Day!
