Lifetime debuted a crazy show called You in September, centered around Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), a bookstore clerk who becomes obsessed with an aspiring writer named Beck (Elizabeth Lail). And by obsessed, I mean full-fledged stalker/murderer. Weirdly, though, it didn't get popular until this past month, when Netflix made the first season available for streaming.
"[You] just feels like a really great story to tell with the Netflix model. It was always built to be extremely binge-able," You's co-showrunner Sera Gamble told Vulture. She's right. It's definitely binge-able, and tons of people have already watched it all the way through multiple times. A second season is now in the works, thanks to Netflix.
Anyway, because humanity is a mess, people cannot get enough of Badgley's character, Joe. Some are even attracted to him because of his stalker behavior, rather than in spite of, and Badgley himself is concerned. As am I.
*WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD*
There's no word yet on when season two of You will debut, but in the meantime, try to focus on why Joe is the WORST.
Don't let that adorable smile fool you; he is evil.
