The streaming service announced that the Greg Berlanti/Sera Gamble-developed Lifetime series based on the Caroline Kepnes novel of the same name would be continuing with a Season 2 made directly for Netflix, rather than through the cable network.
“You” stars Penn Badgley as Joe, an unassuming bookstore manager who begins an unhealthy obsession after a chance encounter with Beck (Elizabeth Lail), a customer. The audience can hear Joe’s thoughts and twisted rationales as he ingratiates himself with Beck’s inner circle and makes some dangerous leaps in logic and legality in order to clear a path to steal her affections. The series also featured a later-season role from John Stamos as Beck’s therapist.
The series was renewed for a Season 2 earlier this summer,
