You Season 2 set for Boxing Day release

Written by Isaac

Reading time: 12 mins

You will return to Netflix just in time for Christmas, with Season 2 set for a Boxing Day release.

Based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same name, the psychological thriller follows Joe Goldberg, a book shop owner who uses the hyper connectivity of today’s technology to make the woman of his dreams fall in love with him – and strategically removes every obstacle, and person, in his way. Season 1 starred Penn Badgley as Joe and Elizabeth Lail as the woman-of-his-dreams, Beck, and their twisting interactions and charismatic performances left viewers hooked.

Season 2 is loosely based on Kepnes’ second novel, Hidden Bodies, which sees Goldberg head to Los Angeles, where he meets Love, an aspiring chef who doesn’t care about social media. She’s also tending to a deep grief — so when she meets Joe she senses a shared knowledge of loss.

Badgley will return for Season 2, with an expanded cast that will include Ambyr Childers as Joe’s ex, Candace, Victoria Pedretti (The Haunting of Hill House) as Love Quinn, Joe’s new romantic interest. They will be joined by Melanie Field as Sunrise, a stay at home blogger raising a toddler with her partner, Lucy, and Magda Apanowicz as Sandy, a woman from Joe’s past, plus Russian Doll’s Charlie Barnett as Gabe, Love’s best friend.

You can see them all in action on 26th December, the same day that Season 1 premiered last year. Here’s the key art announcing the release date. Watch this space for a trailer.

Trailer: Netflix and Lifetime team up for psychological thriller YOU

14th May 2018

Netflix is going Gone Girl for its latest original series, YOU, a co-production between the streaming giant and Lifetime.

The series is based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same name, which was first published back in 2014. The show hails from Berlanti Productions, Man Sewing Dinosaur, and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television and A&E Studios. Now, Netflix has boarded the project, as part of its co-licensing strategy that sees it buddy up with big US studios.

It tells the story of Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), an obsessive yet brilliant New Yorker, who exploits today’s technology to win the heart of Beck (Elizabeth Lail), amid the growing suspicions of her best friend, Peach (Shay Mitchell). Joe transforms himself from stalker to boyfriend while doing whatever it takes to eliminate all obstacles standing in his way – even if it means murder. Set in today’s 24/7 hyper-connected world, YOU explores how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation, both online and in real life.

The series also stars Elizabeth Lail, Luca Padovan, Zach Cherry, and Shay Mitchell, with a special guest appearance by John Stamos. Greg Berlanti, Sera Gamble, Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein, Gina Girolamo, and Marcos Siega serve as executive producers. Executive producers Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble also wrote the first episode of the series, which was directed/executive produced by Lee Toland Krieger.

The series will premiere this September on Lifetime in the US, and will air as a Netflix original in the UK. Here’s the trailer:
