If you enjoyed watching the first season of the You TV show on Lifetime, you shouldn’t look for the second season on the same channel. Though the cable channel renewed the You series for season two earlier this year, Lifetime has decided to cancel plans to air more of the stalker drama series. Low ratings and the fact that the cable channel doesn’t own the series have been cited as the cause.
Netflix had already secured second-window rights for streaming both seasons of the series in the U.S. and first-run rights for streaming internationally. Season one starts streaming December 26th. With Lifetime dropping out, Netflix has picked up the first-run rights in the States for season two. There’s no word on when that will be released.
Here’s the Netflix announcement:
NETFLIX PICKS UP SECOND SEASON OF “YOU” AS A GLOBAL ORIGINAL

What do you think? Did you watch the first season of the You TV series on Lifetime? Will you watch season two on Netflix?
i OVERLY LOVE THIS SHOW !!! COME OUT WITH SEASON 2 ALREADY !!
I loved it ! So happy finally something good to look forward too .. Love that it’s on Netflix can’t wait until season 2 and more ..
I absolutely loved this show finished watching in less than 2 days on Netflix btw Netflix is not that expensive it only 12 bucks a month and it’s also a way you can watch without having to wait on six different commercials to play so you lose track I personally wish everything was on Netflix so you can actually keep up without interruptions I can’t wait to benge out on season 2 best show I’ve watched in a while it doesn’t hurt that Penn Badgley is the main hunk of the show I have missed you Penn !!!
I am just so tired of TV networks cancelling shows and then another venue like Netflix picks it up. Not everyone has or can afford Netflix !!! Networks dont seem to care about their fan/customer base………it is just pure frustrating and disgusting!!
I watched all of the season just loved it was sad that the season 1 ended and was waiting for season 2 and now I’m equally pissed I don’t have Netflix can’t afford it mad in Michigan
I don’t have Netflix! Can’t afford it! This really pisses me off! Love this show!
I watched the entire first season. Not thrilled that It is leaving Lifetime. Will I watch it on Netflix? Maybe.
No, I won’t pay more to see it. It was not that good.
I love this show !!! Yes,I will watch it on Any channel !!
