You is an American psychological thriller television series based on the books by Caroline Kepnes, developed by Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble, and produced by Warner Horizon Television (now Warner Bros. Television), in association with Alloy Entertainment and A+E Studios.

The first season, which is based on the novel You, premiered on Lifetime in September 2018, and follows Joe Goldberg, a bookstore manager and serial killer who falls in love and develops an extreme obsession. The season stars Penn Badgley, Elizabeth Lail, Luca Padovan, Zach Cherry, and Shay Mitchell. Lifetime announced in July 2018 that You had been renewed for a second season, based on Kepnes' follow-up novel Hidden Bodies. The series later moved to Netflix, and was released exclusively in December 2019. The season follows Joe as he moves to Los Angeles and falls in love with local heiress Love Quinn. For the second season, Ambyr Childers was upgraded to a series regular, joining newly cast Victoria Pedretti, James Scully, Jenna Ortega, and Carmela Zumbado.

In January 2020, the series was renewed for a third season by Netflix, which was released on October 15, 2021. In the third season, Saffron Burrows was upgraded to a series regular, joining newly cast Travis Van Winkle, Shalita Grant, Tati Gabrielle and Dylan Arnold. In October 2021, ahead of the third season premiere, the series was renewed for a fourth season.

Re: You [Psychological Thriller]

I couldn't find the forum that discusses this show, so I created one, but if there is one, redirect me.

I just started season 3, and I'm 4 episodes in, and it's very tedious to get through.  I binged seasons 1 and 2 awhile ago, and it was a breeze, I loved the ride and I was really looking forward to what comes next, but this season so far is such a different dynamic I'm having a difficult time.  Just wondering if anyone else is watching this show.

Spoiler

The ordinary setting and hum-drum parenting story in season 3 is what I find boring. I preferred the setting and single life dynamic in the first two seasons far more, as it was escapist.  Couples therapy for two psychopaths is a bit on the nose, but ok.  Backstory Joe is more interesting to me than any of this.

Ya, I thought there was a forum as well, but I couldn't find it.  I suppose we could just make this the official one, as there is no "Forum" link on the next-episode web page for YOU.  (Not that there's much to talk about.)

This is a full blown Romantic Dexter, love it big_smile Also a rare show nowadays which takes a huge dump on political correctness big_smile

Yeah, S03 is a bit worse, but still good. What was annoying - ffs, learn to hide things already! Especially if involves things and body parts of a dead people big_smile

Did you start watching YOU because I posted this forum?  If so, glad you like it, it's a bit of a guilty pleasure show for me.

Spoiler

Romantic Dexter is apt, and ya, the leads tend to make classic TV mistakes, and they gloss over a lot of detail, and there's plenty of suspended disbelief, but I still thoroughly love the premise.

Re: You [Psychological Thriller]

Binged the first season this weekend, quite nice!
Surprised how well Elizabeth Lail was acting, she had alot of sex appeal smile
Oh and Romantic Dexter is spot on lol, or rather romantic spontaneous Dexter.

Still, needed some time to adjust from Dan Humphrey to Joe while watching.

Yeah, but I watched Gossip Girl so long ago that somehow forgot fast about it.
