Lifetime wants to see more of You, and it won’t take, “No,” for an answer. The You TV show has been renewed for second season on Lifetime, about six weeks ahead of the series premiere. Based on the Caroline Kepnes novel of the same name, You comes from executive producers Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble.
A Lifetime psychological drama, You stars Penn Badgley as a bookstore manager who grows obsessed with an aspiring writer, played by Elizabeth Lail. Luca Padovan, Zach Cherry, and Shay Mitchell also star, with John Stamos and Daniel Cosgrove recurring. You season one premieres on Lifetime on Sunday, September 9, 2018 at 10:00pm ET/PT.
A second season was tipped earlier this month when the California Film Commission announced that You, starring Penn Badgley and produced by Berlanti Productions and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Scripted TV and A+E Studios, scored state film credits during the latest funding round and would relocate production to Los Angeles.
Also in the series’ favor for continuing: Netflix in May sealed an international licensing deal for first-run international SVOD rights to the 10-episode series outside of the U.S. (excluding China), with a second-run window in the U.S., Turkey and Turkish-speaking Cyprus. You will air as a Netflix original outside of the U.S.
Adapted by Berlanti and Gamble, You is described as a 21st century love story that asks, “What would you do for love?” When a brilliant bookstore manager Joe Goldberg (Badgley) crosses paths with an aspiring writer (Elizabeth Lail), his answer becomes clear: anything. Using the Internet and social media as his tools to gather the most intimate of details and get close to her, a charming and awkward crush quickly becomes obsession as he quietly and strategically removes every obstacle – and person – in his way.
Season 2 will follow Joe as his search for love takes him to Hollywood where dreams can be made or shattered.
Lifetime announced the You season two renewal at today’s TCA Summer Press Tour.
What do you think? How do you like the sound of the You TV series? Do you plan to check it out, when it premieres on Lifetime? Let us know, below.
Loved this!!! Very excited for #2 . Let’s get rolling on this.
OMG, I could not get enough of YOU and patiently waiting for second season!!!!
You was amazing looking forward to second season thank you
Ok people I’m addicted to “You” start season 2 now please!!!!!
What day is it starting again?
I got nervous when I watched season 1 & figured out he was the scary kind of stalker. I stopped watching, I had a crazy stalker when I was in high school, it brought up a lot of memories, but at that point I was already hooked. I needed to see what was going to happen to Beck!!
Me & my Bff watch it & then discuss each episode!!
We’re waiting to hear when we can watch season 2.
I was hooked from the first episode. Maybe because I witnessed my mother nearly being killed, maybe after being raped, maybe after having 2 stalkers, maybe having my own crazy obsession. Understanding how far one would go because they love you and simply want to protect you.
I started to watch You and was appalled that a story about a stalker would be on television. I do not think this type of conduct should be glorified.
It is only glorified if you want to view it that way. You could look at as just a tv show, like many more films before its time. Ever seen sleeping with the enemy? I just wish people would stop being so offended by every little thing. If you don’t like it just don’t watch it, but saying that it is glorified is just a far leap from reality.
This Show Looks Interesting and good I will watch it and the seasons that come
