The method of storytelling in YOU has attracted many to binge-watch the show
The mysterious bookstore manager is ready to revel in his toxic love stories since October 15, 2021 on Netflix. The makers of the most-loved psychological thriller series, YOU, have dropped a release announcement video, in which the killer protagonist reveals the date of his comeback.
Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) is seen making a cake, which seems to be for welcoming his baby. ‘Welcome Baby Henry’, he writes on the cake. The red cream, and the glimpse of a knife with blood stains which appears often, goes well with the psychic nature of the show, which gives a hint that the upcoming season will also be filled with untoward events.
The first season of the series was based on the 2014 novel by Caroline Kepnes. The show introduced Joe Goldberg, the mysterious bookstore manager, who falls in love with a writer, only to reveal later that he is a psychic stalker and killer. The second season was about Joe moving to Los Angeles and falling in love with another woman. This, too, dealt with the toxic obsessive and killing nature of the protagonist, which takes the audience through a criminal’s eyes. The second season ended with a surprising factor - Joe meeting another woman in his neighbourhood.
The method of storytelling in YOU has attracted many to binge-watch the show. Unlike the tried-and-tested format, the plot here revolves around the dangerous protagonist, who could really be an antagonist in any other hero-centered show. The show portrays his toxic traits and the reasons which made him a terrible man.
Developed by Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble, the series is backed by Warner Horizon Television, in association with Alloy Entertainment and A&E Studios.
The series, which premiered on Lifetime, has a Netflix original title since its second season. The third season will also be streamed on Netflix.
