Plot Synopsis

Based on Caroline Kepnes' 2014 novel of the same name, YOU is a 10-episode psychological thriller drama that answers the question: What would you do for love? When a brilliant bookstore manager, twentysomething Joe Goldberg, crosses paths with an aspiring writer named Beck, his answer to that question becomes clear. He'll do anything. Using the internet and social media as his tools to gather the most intimate of details and get close to her, a charming and awkward crush quickly becomes obsession as he quietly and strategically removes every obstacle -- and person -- in his way. Co-creators Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble will serve as co-showrunners. On May 26, 2018 Lifetime announced it renewed YOU for a second season, 3.5 months before the series premiere.

In the series opener, Joe meets Beck, falls in love and goes down a social media rabbit hole to learn everything about her. He becomes so obsessed that he tracks her IRL (and they meet again!) This might be a real shot at real love. But there are some things standing in the way... like her ex, Benji. If Joe's serious about Beck, he's going to need to get serious about the problem of Benji.
