Who Is Returning?
Of course, Penn Badgley is returning. I mean, You simply would not be the same without him. Ambyr Childers will return as Joe's ex-girlfriend Candace after being MIA. "She's not nearly as dead as [Joe] thought," Gamble told Vanity Fair. Victoria Cartagena, who plays Paco's mom Claudia, is reported to be returning, along with Zach Cherry, Nicole King, and Kathryn Gallagher, who portray Ethan, Lynn, and Annika, respectively.
It's also possible that Elizabeth Lail and Shay Mitchell, who plays Peach Salinger, may return, though it might be in ghost form. "I think [Joe] would feel haunted by some of the things that he felt compelled to do in season one," Gamble previously told Variety. "He certainly wasn't doing this stuff because he enjoyed it . . . We didn't write the character to be a bloodthirsty serial killer. We wrote him to be certainly misguided and, at times, one could argue, unhinged but always for what would seem like compelling and noble reasons."
And what about John Stamos as the swoon-worthy Dr. Nicky? Well, according to Gamble, "it's too soon to say definitely," but they have "been talking a lot about the character" and are "excited to keep telling that story."
