Lifetime TV series don’t earn the kind of ratings that larger cable and broadcast networks do, but sometimes, they develop a loyal fanbase. Fans of the cabler’s new You TV show don’t have to worry whether it will be cancelled or renewed, because the network picked it up for season two, prior to the series premiere. Will it continue after that, or end there? Stay tuned.
A Lifetime psychological thriller, the first season of You stars Elizabeth Lail, Penn Badgley, Shay Mitchell, Nicole Kang, Kathryn Gallagher, Victoria Cartagena, Luca Padovan, Zach Cherry, and Daniel Cosgrove, with guest star John Stamos. Based on the Caroline Kepnes novel of the same name, the drama centers on bookstore manager Joe Goldberg (Badgley) and aspiring writer and grad student Guinevere Beck (Lail), aka “Beck.” As Joe narrates, it soon becomes clear that this seemingly caring romantic is a dark soul prone to obsession and violence. He will do anything to get what he wants, and boy does he want Beck.
