Netflix have struck gold with the true-crime genre. I don’t know why people have this strange fascination and obsession with these disturbing characters but they do, and that means Netflix are going to milk it dry.

The whole Ted Bundy craze got seriously out of hand, so much so in fact that the streaming service have bought the Zac Efron adaptation.

The platform also hit another home run with You – the Penn Badgely led psychological thriller about a man who becomes infatuated with a woman and begins stalking her.

It’s a really creepy show as it is, but if that wasn’t enough for you, the streamer has just released a new video of the series without Joe’s narration… and it’s deeply unsettling.

Ahh, it’s weird.

Like Friends without the laughing track.

In case you didn’t know, You has recently been renewed for a second season, after some 40 million subscribers tuned into the first series.

Netflix has already revealed that Haunting of Hill House star Victoria Pedretti has been cast as Love Quinn, the love interest/potential target of Joe.

Apparently, Quinn’s an aspiring chef working as the produce manager of a high-end grocery store, but unlike Guinevere, she has no interest in social media.

The streaming platform announced the news on Twitter, writing: “Haunting of Hill House breakout Victoria Pedretti landed the female lead in @YouNetflix Season 2.

You‘s second season will be based on the book Hidden Bodies, which sees Joe moves from New York to LA in an attempt to start a new life.

Executive producer on the show, Sera Gamble told EW what to expect:

“Part of the fun of continuing the story is that the loose ends from Joe’s past are still dangling and could come back to him at anytime.

“He is very worried about the fact that Peach Salinger’s [the cousin of Beck] family has hired people to investigate her alleged suicide, and there is evidence potentially still at her house from season one.

“If you look at every act of violence that he does in season one, that is potentially something that could come back and bite him. And Dr. Nicky [Beck’s therapist] is in prison and he is ardently protesting his innocence.”

I still can’t get over that video without the narration, it’s amazing what it actually does to a show.

Let’s hope the new series – which returns later this year – has plenty of Joe talking over it.

Never thought I’d say that.
