You loved him as a budding writer on Gossip Girl and now, Penn Badgley is heading back to TV in a new Lifetime drama. He’ll assume a very different role than that of our beloved Dan Humphrey, and it sounds like it’s pretty twisted!

Badgley will play a bookstore manager named Joe in the upcoming Lifetime series You from Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble (showrunner of Syfy’s The Magicians!).

You is based on the book of the same name by Caroline Kepnes. The thriller follows the story of the aforementioned bookstore manager, who becomes obsessed with an aspiring writer.

Here’s a little more about what we can expect from the show via Liz Gateley, EVP and Head of Programming for Lifetime:

The show has already been guaranteed 10 episodes. So, it seems like Badgley’s thrilling new gig will have him on our screens for awhile. And we can’t complain about that!

No word yet on when the series will start airing. So, maybe time to kick off your summer beach reading with You.
