Netflix casts Joe's new love interest in You season two – and fans will recognise Victoria Pedretti from Haunting Of Hill House

Victoria Pedretti will play aspiring chef Love Quinn in the follow-up season, and Netflix fans will no doubt recognise her from the online streaming service's original series Haunting Of Hill House last year.

Victoria, 23, played Eleanor 'Nell' Crain in the hugely successful horror show – and she is now set to play another innocent character in danger.

Netflix announced the casting on their official Twitter page, writing: "Haunting of Hill House breakout Victoria Pedretti landed the female lead in @YouNetflix Season 2.

"She plays Love Quinn, an aspiring chef who doesn't care about social media.

"She's also tending to a deep grief — so when she meets Joe she senses a shared knowledge of profound loss."

You was initially based on Caroline Kepnes' novel of the same name, and the confirmation that Love is Joe's [played by Penn Badgley] new obsession appears to suggest that the second series will be following the storyline of the book's sequel, Hidden Bodies.

In Hidden Bodies, Joe jets off to start a new life for himself in Hollywood, California.

Attempting to leave the horror of what happened with Beck in New York behind him, Joe finds work in a LA book shop, and even makes new friends before becoming infatuated with Love after a chance meeting in Soho House.

Desperate to give his new relationship a chance, in spite of Love's overbearing brother, Joe becomes haunted by the cup of wee that he left at the scene of Peach Salinger's murder and fears that his past crimes will start to catch up with him.

Despite the huge success of You, Hidden Bodies proved to be a divisive read for fans – with some readers claiming that the sequel "lacked the creepiness and intrigue" of the first book.

However, the first series of the TV adaptation did hint that it will be following the book sequel as the finale ended with Joe's neighbours, Paco and Claudia packing up their car to move to Los Angeles.

Paco and Claudia did not feature in the books, but Paco played a key role in the TV show – and his move will no doubt give Joe a reason to jet to the West Coast.

Earlier this month, Netflix revealed that You was on track to be viewed a staggering 40 million times in January alone.

Taking to their verified news Twitter account, See What's Next, they wrote: "Joe isn't the only one watching: @YouNetflix is on track to be viewed by more than 40 million members in its first four weeks on Netflix!"
