Lifetime will not air “You” Season 2. Despite critical success, the network has opted not to premiere the second season in 2019. Instead, another network will pick it up.

“You” Season 2 will air on Netflix, per the Hollywood Reporter. The drama’s first season will hit the streaming platform on Dec. 26, and Netflix already had the rights to the show’s international run.

Lifetime had initially renewed “You” for Season 2 in September before the first season even premiered, and critics seemed to appreciate the Penn Badgley TV show. However, the series only averaged a little over 611,000 viewers and it’s produced by Warner Horizon Scripted Television rather than by Lifetime. That led to the female-driven network dropping the show.

This isn’t the first time Lifetime had passed off a scripted show to a streaming platform. It did the same with “UnREAL.” The “Bachelor”-inspired drama, starring Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby, moved to Hulu for its fourth and final season.
