Critics Consensus

Penn Badgley's perversely endearing serial stalker keeps looking for love in all the wrong places during a second season that maintains the subversive tension while adding some welcome variations on the series' formula.

Critic Reviews for You Season 2

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (15)

A self-aware work of melodrama, You combines the best elements of murder-mystery series, Millennial sitcoms, and revenge fantasies.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

'You' is still fun, and its ending easily sets up a Season 3. But there are only so many times Joe can worm his way out of an impossible situation before viewers stop caring.

Season 2 proves Season 1 wasn't lightning in a bottle.

Dec 26, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

With Harvey Weinstein very much still in the public eye, the shadow that #MeToo casts over this season is both on the nose and out of place.

Jan 18, 2020 | Full Review…

This second season embraces the series's excess for an engaging great time. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jan 16, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The second season of You is even more bonkers than its predecessor, rectifying loose plot threads and keeping the addictive contents of the first season.

Jan 15, 2020 | Full Review…

I'm captivated by these women that he (Joe) all but ruins in his twisted way of love.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Story stumbles aside, You delivers on all the hot, steamy intrigue that we came to love in the first season. Penn Badgley continues to deliver a masterful performance and this is a world that one just can't help being sucked into.

Jan 8, 2020 | Full Review…

You season 2 still keeps its audience on its toes with shocking yet satisfying twists and turns.

Jan 3, 2020 | Full Review…

After a surprising first season that originally premiered on Lifetime, You is now a Netflix original that has truly found its stride.

Jan 3, 2020 | Full Review…

By the second half of the season, audiences may be shocked by how much they cared for someone who turns out to be evil. But this strategy already failed in season one.

Dec 31, 2019 | Full Review…

[You Season 2] is still just as addictive as the first season.

Audience Reviews for You: Season 2

    If this was simply a rating on the first season, it was be an easy 4 & 1/2 stars. Every episode left me wanting more, and I couldn't help but binge the next episode. However, the 2nd season really hurt my opinion of the show. I skipped so many of the scenes, and I genuinely couldn't wait until each episode ended. My friends told me that "it got better" and it never did. Yawn.

    Season one of 'You' was excellent, so far I've seen 5 episodes of season 2 and somehow I feel underwhelmed.

    You season 2, a decent show to watch. Really solid main characters. This season less about stalking and more involved. Joe's obsession to helping kids gets in the way sometimes. Loves brother and Love herself were excellent. I appreciate the 2020 dialogue. The characters were all well done actually, except one. Everything to do with Joe's ex girlfriend Candace was dumb. He supposedly thought he killed her then buried her but she still survived somehow. She was silent all season 1 cause they say cops told her to pretend to stay dead. Somehow this explains her not talking to friends or family or anyone. The show made it seem like Candace, without any money, could travel all over and stunningly get in Joe's life threatening to expose him. Her character just seemed out of place and ultimately pointless after she was killed. Now let's talk about that ending. Wow, they really did a poor job. Finding out that Love was a killer too was a good twist. Could of been great, but having Joe's character be judgemental and upset at that fact is beyond absurd. It was like they want Joe's character to turn away from obsessive love and have us be sympathetic that Love killed his friend... yeah the friend he had handcuffed in a cage. Sympathetic towards him like he is actually a good guy that's a serial killer, almost Dexter esque. And it's funny cause "Dexter" is referenced in the show. Anyway, instead of the show having intrigue about maybe Love being the lead next year instead they focus on Joe, who now does nothing for love. Oh, and the cameo with Dr. Nicky was pointless and annoying.

    So engaging I couldn't look away. Creepy... but interesting.

    Sticking to a winning formula from the the debut season, this second season continues to find new ways to create more tension and suspense and take us on yet another rivetting ride from start to finish.

    Very binge-worthy. Every episode had you on the edge of your seat about what will happen next. The screenplay, camerawork and casting all come together harmoniously and create something wonderful to watch. Penn Badgley plays the role of a twisted, sadistic, lover in the best way possible!

    Great acting and nice writing , what else ?

    Very drawn-out, and full of cringe-worthy dialogue. The show desperately tries to shove non-stop social justice buzzwords and messages down your throat. I am all for including positive and "woke" progress ideas but it comes as unbelievably disingenuous and flat-out kills any tension in a scene. Love is a much better character than Beck, however, and he inclusion is probably the best part of the season. All in all, I would recommend this show to the "13 Reasons Why" and "Riverdale" crowd, and nobody else.

    Season 2 was not what I expected from the series and ended in a way which cheapened the entire character arch and motives. While Joe seems to take the change in his life seriously, it all comes crumbling down in the final moments of the last episode. There are ways to keep an audience coming back, undoing all the work you built in an entire season to start the process over is not one of them.

    absolutely pointless season!!!
