The new thriller coming to Lifetime and Netflix will hit screens this Autumn on Lifetime and this Winter on Netflix.

Gossip Girl fans, prepare for the return of Lonely Boy. Penn Badley stars in a 10-episode Lifetime/Netflix series called YOU.

YOU is a modern thriller that will make you rethink how open you are on social media. Penn plays Joe, a seriously deranged tech-savvy stalker who studies a girl, "Beck", in a bid to become her perfect guy.

YOU, based on a best selling novel of the same name by Caroline Kepnes, comes to TV courtesy of the Executive Producers behind Riverdale. From what we've seen of the series, YOU is seriously dark, sexy and suspenseful.
