If you thought the first season of You was peak horror, think again. According to what showrunner Sera Gamble told Us Weekly, Netflix’s second season of the Lifetime’s original psychological thriller series will be even “darker than season one.”

During an exclusive chat with the publication, Gamble warned You followers that Season 2 won’t being paring any of the creepiness that had watchers like Millie Bobby Brown obsessed. “I would say that season 2 of You, kind of, doubles down on some of the stuff that you might come to expect,” she explained.

As you know, Lifetime passed up making a second season and changed the guard over the Netflix in December 2018.

Trailing the bloody events of Season 1, which was adapted from Caroline Kepnes’ book of the same name, Penn Badgley’s obsessive Joe Goldberg finds himself moving to Los Angeles in the follow-up based on Kepnes’ 2016 sequel, Hidden Bodies. What’s more, though, Gamble says the relocation will bring out “a whole different side” of the serial killer.

This seems constant with what she had to share in another interview with TV Guide, in which she teases a scene that’s particularly “gorier and scarier than anything we had in Season 1.”

“You will know it when you see it,” she added. “Episode 2 of the season has my single favorite shot that I have been a part of in my entire career. My career is full of blood and gore and monsters. It’s also beautifully shot and the director who shot the second episode lavished a lot of love. Joe is forced to do something he really doesn’t want to do.”
