Deadline is reporting that Melanie Field and Magda Apanowicz are the latest names to join the cast of the upcoming second season of Netflix’s psychological thriller series You.
The synopsis for the first season is as follows:
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.
The report states that Melanie Field (whose credits include Heathers and Succession) will be playing the role of Sunrise, a stay at home mummy blogger who raises a toddler with her partner Lucy in their gorgeous Venice Beach home. A new age wellness aficionado who’s monetized her interests with a popular Instagram, she’s the cheerleader of her friend circle. Magda Apanowicz (whose credits include Continuum and Travelers) will be playing the role of Sandy, a woman from Joe’s past with an infectious smile and restless spirit. She has been beaten up by life.
The television series is based on the novel by Caroline Kepnes, developed for television by Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti. You originally launched as a Lifetime series, with Netflix as SVOD/international partner. This upcoming second season will see You became a Netflix original. Greg Berlanti serves as an executive producer on the series alongside Sera Gamble, Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein, Gina Girolamo and Marcos Siega.
The duo will join a cast for the second season that includes Penn Badgley, Victoria Pedretti, James Scully, Jenna Ortega, Ambyr Childers, Adwin Brown, Robin Lord Taylor, Carmela Zumbado, Marielle Scott, Chris D’Elia and Charlie Barnett.
