Premiere date: Late fall
Unlike the few hidden gems on this list, You on Netflix is a shining star. The stalker drama became so popular, in fact, that the streaming giant took it to Twitter to brag about how many people have been watching the series. But don’t think it’s an overrated drama. You definitely deserves its place on Netflix for its suspense and thrills. Not to mention, its journey to become a hit is an interesting one!
Based on the novel of the same name by Caroline Kepnes, You premiered on the Lifetime channel, but wasn’t very welcomed by audiences. Whether you blame viewers or failure to properly promote the series, the network canceled You once the first season wrapped, despite already promising a second run. Still, Netflix picked it up. What harm will it do to show it to the streaming service’s audience, right?
Well, as you can imagine, You blew up and suddenly it was all anyone was talking about, especially on social media. Memes and inside jokes were created, it was insane. Netflix acquired the rights and was quick to renew the thriller series for a second season, based on the book Hidden Bodies by the same author.
We have seen the cast and crew hard at work and can’t wait to see what the next season has in store. We don’t have an exact premiere date, but we are expecting the season to drop sometime late fall.
Season 2 will continue to follow Joe Goldberg, the hopeless romantic slash stalker slash murderer. Joe decides to start over and move to Los Angeles, but the problem has never been the location, but Joe…try telling him that, though! Joe has now set his eyes (aka obsession) on Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti).
