Lifetime's not-so-romantic thriller series You was recently picked up by Netflix. According to the streaming service, the acquisition is working in everyone's favour. As Netflix's official Twitter account, Penn Badgeley-starrer drama is expected to gain more than 40 million viewers in its first month of streaming.

The first time viewers for You are flooding social media with their thoughts and have developed analysis on whether is it okay to have a crush on Badgeley's character Joe Goldberg despite him being a murderous stalker.

If you are wondering about You Season 2, it most definitely is in the pipeline. The TVLine reports suggest season 2 will be based on Hidden Bodies, the second book in Caroline Kepnes’ series, which relocates Joe to Los Angeles for more family-friendly shenanigans.

In the same report, Netflix claims that its recent the sex-positive British comedy series Sex Education is on track to hit the 40 million mark in the near future as well.

Generally, streaming services do not reveal viewership data but publicly bragging about its success can gain both the series a huge momentum.
