D'Elia will play Henderson, a designer-hoodie, black Ray-Bans, expensive sneakers-wearing famous comedian with a "hard-life-lessons man-of-the-people" thing working for him.
You, which aired season one on Lifetime before being picked up by the streaming service, is based on Caroline Kepnes' novel and follows Joe Goldberg (Badgley), a bookstore manager who becomes entangled with one of his customers, a young woman named Beck (Elizabeth Lail). But when Joe falls for someone, love can quickly turn to obsession.
The sophomore season, will be loosely based on the author's follow-up novel, Hidden Bodies. It will follow Goldberg to Los Angeles where he meets Love Quinn (newly-cast Victoria Pedretti), an aspiring chef that isn’t into social media like his previous leading lady.
