While it was reported last year that Victoria Pedretti of The Haunting of Hill House will play Joe's new love interest Love Quinn, an ambitious chef working at a fancy grocery store, showrunner Sera Gamble revealed more information when speaking to Entertainment Weekly, "I will say that Love is a person he [Joe] could only have met after what happened between him and Beck [played by Elizabeth Lail in season one].

"And by the way, Joe is not out there looking for love. He's truly heartbroken by what has happened, and so what Love offers is a different kind of friendship and a different kind of relationship."

Joining Pedretti will be Marielle Scott who will play Lucy, a hip literary agent while successful comedian Chris D'Elia will play a struggling comedian.

Carmela Zumbado (an investigative reporter), Jenna Ortega (a streetwise teen), and James Scully (brother of Joe's new love interest) have also been added to the season 2 roster. 

But the most famous actor of all, the legendary John Stamos, who played Joe's therapist, Dr. Nicky, has yet to be confirmed for season 2.

The success of the first series, which sees Penn Badgley of Gossip Girl fame play Joe Goldberg, a handsome bookshop owner who becomes obsessed with Elizabeth Lail's character Guinevere Beck, became one of the show's most popular debut series, and a second season is now in the works.

Based on Caroline Kepnes's book of the same name, the second season certainly sounds just as compelling, as showrunner Sera Gamble revealed to the Hollywood Reporter. "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 [the cousin of Beck, murdered by Joe in season one]'s 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."

After being questioned more on possible storylines, she added, "It's too soon to say definitely whether John Stamos [who plays Dr Nicky] will return in season two, but we have been talking a lot about the character and we're excited to keep telling that story."
