Season 2 of Netflix's soapy, stalker drama, You, is officially in full swing. We do know the series will be set in Los Angeles (not New York), and see Penn Badgley's Joe Goldberg get into some dark, twisted weirdness after that absolutely insane Season 1 finale. He'll also meet "an aspiring chef working as a produce manager in a high-end grocery store" named Love Quinn, a punchy name that gives Peach Salinger a run for her money.
Per Deadline: "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 (Badgley), she senses a shared knowledge of profound, life-changing loss." So basically, she's the opposite of Beck.
Love Quinn will be portrayed by Victoria Pedretti. Fans of Netflix's excellent and spooky series The Haunting of Hill House will recognize the actress for her role as Nell — aka one of the youngest Crain kids, aka the Bent-Neck Lady.
Oh, I just got chills.
I don't know about you, but having the actress who played one of the scariest and most menacing TV characters of 2018 meet one of the grossest and most disturbing male characters of 2018 seems fitting to me. You showrunner Sera Gamble seems to agree."It is very f–king cool that Victoria is playing this role," She told EW. "I binged Hill House, and she was incredible. And then a couple of days later, [executive producer] Greg [Berlanti] sent an email asking, 'Have you seen Hill House? Have you seen Victoria Pedretti, wouldn’t she make a perfect Love?’ Leave it to Greg to put that together."
The second season of You will pull characters from Caroline Kepnes's sequel to her You novel, Hidden Bodies. "Love embodies the best of Los Angeles," Gamble told EW. "Joe is not moving to LA because he f–king loves the West Coast. He's a New Yorker and he has bought the party line on how terrible L.A. is and when he gets here, very little dissuades him from his initial opinion... She's a Los Angeles native. She has really absorbed the best of the city and she's really artistic with the way that she lives her life."
Better watch out, Joe. The Bent-Neck Lady is coming for you.
