Cape Town - According to insiders, the second season of the popular Netflix show, You will be darker than the first. 

Us Weekly reports that in the upcoming season of the much talked about show Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) moves to the West Coast as he tries to escape his past horrors. 

Showrunner Sera Gamble told the publication exclusively that the new season, which is based on the book series by Caroline Kepnes, will "double down" on some of the topics explored before. 

A release date for season two is yet to be announced. Meanwhile you can watch the first season here. 

The first season had everyone talking, when Joe Goldberg was sexualised despite being a serial killer.

When fans took to Twitter to fantasize over his murderous character, Penn was quick to remind them that Joe is a murderer. In fact, in an with Huffington Post’s Emma Gray, Penn tackled this issue head-on, saying: "In the beginning, I was not interested in making Joe human. I was like, ‘This dude’s a murderer. I don’t think we need to be humanising murderers anymore.’"

Penn added that if we humanise the character of Joe then we have to accept that we’ve somehow "also been supportive and complicit in allowing Joe to reach the conclusions he’s reached".

According to him we can’t just point the finger and call people evil because it’s not helpful. "It’s not helpful because it actually is our reality," he adds.
