"Season two finds him on the run from Candace – leaving New York City for his own personal hell: Los Angeles. He’s fresh out of an intense relationship that ended in murder. The last thing he expects is to meet an incredible new woman but he’s falling in love again — with a woman named Love (Victoria Pedretti). Is history repeating? Or will this time be the real thing? Joe’s just crazy enough to risk finding out," reads the description for the season. 

You is based on the book by Caroline Kepnes. 

All 10 episodes of Season 2 drop on December 26. –
