Love turns into obsession in the first trailer for YOU starring Penn Badgley
“The things you do for love, right?” Or perhaps more accurately, the things Joe will do for love.
EW has the exclusive first trailer for Lifetime’s YOU, which follows Joe, a bookstore manager who becomes entangled with one of his customers, a young woman named Beck. But when Joe falls for someone, love can quickly turn to obsession, and as the trailer shows, Joe and Beck’s love story gets very complicated very quickly.
The series, which is based on Caroline Kepnes’ novel of the same name, comes from executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sera Gamble, Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein, Gina Girolamo, and Marcos Siega. It stars Elizabeth Lail as Beck, Penn Badgley as Joe, and also features Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell and John Stamos. The trailer introduces all four characters, including Joe’s rivalry with Peach, who seems to also take a specific interest in Beck (and who can be seen holding a gun).
Watch the trailer in full above.
YOU premieres Sunday, Sept. 9 at 10 p.m. ET. on Lifetime.
