Lonely Boy Penn Badgley has been mostly absent from our TV screens for five long years, but now he's making his return with You, a new psychological thriller series on Lifetime.
Badgley will reportedly be playing the lead role of bookstore manager Joe Goldberg in the series...
...and lucky for us, it sounds a lot like a darker version of Gossip Girl:
Based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same name, “YOU” is a 21st century love story that asks, “What would you do for love?” When a brilliant bookstore manager crosses paths with an aspiring writer, his answer becomes clear: 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.
A guy who loves books + internet and social media sleuthing + a twisted love story? Definitely getting some scary-Dan-Humphrey vibes.
The series is set to premiere on Lifetime in 2018.
