We've been addicted to You since Netflix released it back in December, and pretty much binged the ten episodes in a row without so much as a toilet break. It was unhealthy.

The show follows the narrative of bookstore manager Joe, and his infatuation with poetry writer Beck. Beginning as an online stalker, Joe gradually becomes more sinister as his obsession escalates throughout.

Starring Penn Badgley, otherwise known as Dan Humphries from Gossip Girl, and Pretty Little Liars' Shay Mitchell, the show had us seriously addicted.

News broke that the show is getting a season two, and we want DETAILS, OKAY?

Warning: Spoilers incoming

The show is based on the book by Caroline Kepnes, which means that avid readers can discover the future of You. Anyone who is already a fan of the novel will know that season two will be based in Los Angeles.

Rather than remain in New York City's urban jungle setting, Joe relocates to LA for a change.

Elizabeth Lail confirmed in a recent interview that the next season will see major alterations, including the progression away from Beck's character.

"I think they’re shooting it in LA, and so nothing will be the same. Hardly anything. It’ll be a whole other story,” she told Radio Times.about the sequel, Hidden Bodies.

Writer Sera Gamble also told Metro.co.uk, "We are prepping to shoot season two now, in Los Angeles. Which is also where the second book of the series takes place."

Not all of the book's plot will be explored, however. Gamble also said;

"We’ve got lots of great stuff from the books, and also some new things that have come about as a result of changing the story for TV, like that (spoiler alert) Candace is alive and kicking and not pleased with Joe.”

Showrunner Sarah Gamble also revealed that the audience will learn much more about Joe's past in the next season, including how he became an obsessive stalker and serial killer…

"There's a lot more to explore about Joe from earlier in his life. Those are the things we're starting to get into for season two,” she told The Hollywood Reporter

As anyone who watched season one will know, Beck and Peach probably won’t return (maybe as ghosts?) but we may get to see some flashbacks, judging by Candace's role.

As of right now, there is yet to be a set air date for season two, but we'll be keeping our eyes peeled.

A bit like Joe…but significantly more normal…

It's fair to say we all have little obsessions, whether it's with a band, a singer or even just going shopping; everyone has a guilty little pleasure. 

But when that guilty little pleasure comes between your marriage, it should be pretty clear that you've gone too far. 

That's what happened to a woman, Kirsty, who appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show, and after many years, replaced her husband with her obsession for Westlife

The couple even named their children after band members, Shane Filan and Kian Egan. But her husband, Adam, said he's had enough. 

Adam told Jeremy: "I'm tired of being the doormat. I've had enough of Westlie."

He even admitted that his wife was so obsessed with the Irish band that she said she wished Shane Filan was the father of her children. 

"I'm obsessed, I've got an obsession with them," Kirsty said. 

But then Jeremy had a special surprise for the mother-of-two and played her a video message from Shane, who invited her to one of his gigs next year. 

Kirsty then proceeded to go into meltdown mode but made a big error when Jeremy asked her a question.

The host thought that he might have patched things up with the couple – as did everyone else – but when he asked, "Then you're probably going to go back to the hotel and have copious quantities of sex.. You want sex [with your husband], yeah?"

To which Kirsty replied, "Well Shane would be better." *facepalm*
