Lifetime's New Show Looks Like a Crazy Good Mashup of Riverdale and Gossip Girl
Penn Badgley has officially gone from Lonely Boy in love with a pretty blonde to a . . . lonely boy infatuated with a pretty blonde. The Gossip Girl alum stars in the upcoming Lifetime series, YOU (based on Caroline Kepnes's 2014 novel of the same name) and it already looks crazy good . . . emphasis on crazy. After a young bookstore manager (Badgley) falls for one of his customers (Once Upon a Time's Elizabeth Lail), his seemingly innocent crush quickly turns into a full-fledged obsession. Sound intriguing? Get a load of all the juicy details about the book-to-TV adaptation below.
