Prior to starring on “You,” the actor also starred on “Gossip Girl” as Dan Humphrey.


Ambyr Childers, who played Candace Stone on the first season of “You,” is also set to return.

NetflixCandace is set to appear once again.

Before her unexpected appearance at the end of season one, many viewers thought that Stone had disappeared for good.

But, per IMDb, the actress will make a few appearances on season two of the show, though it could just be in flashbacks.

You might recognise the actress from shows like “Ray Donovan” and “The Magicians.”


Victoria Pedretti, who got her start as Eleanor “Nell” Crain on the Netflix series “The Haunting of Hill House,” will appear as Joe’s new love interest.

Pedretti is set to play Joe’s new love interest Love Quinn, who puts a kink in Joe’s stalker behaviour due to the fact that she’s not interested in social media. According to Deadline, Love Quinn is “an aspiring chef working as a produce manager in a high-end grocery store.”

Later this year, viewers can also see Pedretti as Lulu in Quentin Tarantino’s 2019 film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

James Scully will be playing Love Quinn’s brother, Forty Quinn.

Michael Loccisano/GettyHis character’s name is Forty Quinn.

According to TVLine, his character is described as “confident, opinionated and privileged – at his best, a charming buddy; at his worst, a razor-sharp bully.”

You might recognise the actor from his role on Paramount’s controversial “Heathers” TV series.


Fellow “Heathers” alum Adwin Brown will be playing a man named Calvin.

Paul Archuleta/FilmMagic/GettyHis character is named Calvin.

Per Deadline, Calvin works at a high-end grocery store (likely alongside Victoria Pedretti’s character). He’s described as a “true West Coaster who’s a mix of both meditation and stress.”

It sounds like Calvin has mixed feelings about his life, as the publication notes, “although he feels his life is more together than most, working at an unconventional store for some unconventional bosses tests him.”

Fans of The CW’s “Jane the Virgin” will recognise Jenna Ortega, who will be playing a teenager named Ellie

Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic/GettyShe’s been on a few TV shows before.

It sounds like Joe might have a new nemesis. As TVGuide reported,Ortega’s character Ellie “isn’t afraid to get into murky waters to make a little cash. This includes working cons on adults around her, including Joe Goldberg.”

Per the publication’s reports, her character is also “secretly living with minimal adult supervision.”

Viewers may also recognise the actress from her role on Disney’s “Stuck in the Middle.”


Charlie Barnett will play Love Quinn’s best friend and “closest confidant” on the second season of “You.”

“Undateable” star Chris D’Elia will be playing a comic named Henderson.

Michael Tran/FilmMagic/GettyHe’s a comedian in real life.

His character has a “hard-life-lessons man-of-the-people” vibe going on, according to Deadline. Considering that he’s described as a “designer-hoodie, black Ray-Bans, expensive sneakers-wearing famous comedian,” there’s a chance that this character could clash with Joe.

Viewers might also recognise D’Elia from his multiple stand-up comedy specials that are currently streaming on Netflix.


Marielle Scott, who viewers might remember from “Lady Bird,” will play a literary agent.

Jon Kopaloff/GettyShe was in ‘Lady Bird’ in 2017.

Although it so far seems like Joe has escaped any major repercussions for the slew of crimes he committed during season one, that could all change on season two.

According to Deadline, “Delilah becomes dangerously interested in her new neighbour, Joe Goldberg, who seems to be hiding something.” Per Deadline, the character is also an investigative reporter.

Viewers might recognise Carmela Zumbado from her role on “CrazyEx-Girlfriend.”
