Looks like Penn Badgley and his new, terrifying personality are headed to Netflix. Although Lifetime already renewed its delightfully chilling drama for a 2nd season, that follow-up bankruptcy will not air at the cable community, leaping to the streaming platform as an alternative. In the interim, Netflix will start streaming the display’s first season on December 26.
You, which is in response to the unconventional by means of Caroline Kepnes, debuted on Lifetime q4. The debut season follows a book place supervisor, Joe (Badgley), as he stalks and ultimately dates a mysterious buyer, Beck—performed to refined perfection by means of Elizabeth Lail. The collection hailed from Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti, and turned into a sleeper hit q4.
As it makes the transfer to Netflix, the display’s target market will most probably proceed to develop, as observed with collection like Riverdale—which noticed a huge uptick in viewership as soon as Netflix customers have been ready to circulate it. This time, on the other hand, Netflix would be the one to achieve from that expanded target market—a method apparently to be the usage of increasingly more.
Netflix has turn into a commonplace savior for collection dumped by means of their authentic networks. This yr, it’s ordered further seasons of presentations like Designated Survivor, which ABC canceled after two seasons, and Lucifer, which Fox canned after 3. There’s additionally Arrested Development Seasons four and five, either one of which Netflix produced, and Longmire, which the streamer stored in 2014.
It’s unclear why Lifetime has dropped You from its roster; a consultant for the community didn’t right away reply to V.F.’s request for remark. A premiere date for the brand new season continues to be unknown. But given the unceremonious finishing Lifetime’s UnREAL gained—the collection used to be booted to Hulu for a disappointing ultimate season—some You enthusiasts may well be respiring a sigh of aid. Then once more, a shift to Netflix isn’t at all times the most secure transfer both; simply ask Arrested Development enthusiasts about Season four. For now, despite the fact that, the largest considerations nonetheless belong to Joe. After all, he’s were given so much to maintain as soon as the collection returns.
