”Everyone is pretending to be someone they’re not“ — including him

Netflix dropped its first teaser for the second season of “You” on Thursday, showing us just what Joe (Penn Badgley) thinks of his new home in Los Angeles. Spoiler alert: He’s not a fan. Also, he’s called Will now, apparently.

But don’t worry, because Joe — er, Will, says in L.A., “everyone is pretending to be someone they’re not.” So maybe he’ll actually fit in here better than he did in New York City.

Watch the video above.

The Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble drama stars Badgley as Joe — now Will — a very handsome, charming, and normal-seeming book shop manager who quickly reveals a pattern of obsession, paranoia, and homicidal tendencies when he falls in love. Season 1 saw the demise of an aspiring young writer named Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail) and her conniving best friend Peach Salinger (Shay Mitchell).

Here’s all we know about his next obsession/love-interest in the upcoming season, which premieres Dec. 26. Her name is Love Quinn, and she’ll be played by Victoria Pedretti from “The Haunting of Hill House.”

The series originally aired on Lifetime, where it was renewed for Season 2 before it aired. However, Netflix ended up nabbing it and will be its home for its Season 2 debut. You can still check out Season 1 on the streaming service if you’re not caught up.

Called “Hidden Bodies” and based on “You” author Caroline Kepnes’ follow-up novel, here is the official synopsis for Season 2:

Joe Goldberg is no stranger to hiding bodies. In the past ten years, this thirty-something has buried four of them, collateral damage in his quest for love. Now he’s heading west to Los Angeles, the city of second chances, determined to put his past behind him.

In Hollywood, Joe blends in effortlessly with the other young upstarts. He eats guac, works in a bookstore, and flirts with a journalist neighbor. But while others seem fixated on their own reflections, Joe can’t stop looking over his shoulder. The problem with hidden bodies is that they don’t always stay that way. They re-emerge, like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: true love. And when he finds it in a darkened room in Soho House, he’s more desperate than ever to keep his secrets buried. He doesn’t want to hurt his new girlfriend-he wants to be with her forever. But if she ever finds out what he’s done, he may not have a choice…

“You” Season 2 premieres Dec. 26 on Netflix.
