The thrilling new psychological drama on Netflix that you'll want to binge immediately.

Now that we’re almost at the end of the year, Netflix is really pulling out the big guns when it comes to offering up loads of new movies and TV shows.

Along with a slew of must-watch new movies, including Dumplin and Bird Box, the streaming giant have also released a number of new bingeable TV shows.

The latest bingeworthy series to be dropped? YOU.

While the series’ promotional images may lead you to believe we’ve got another teen rom-com on our hands (we’re looking at you, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before), YOU takes a slightly more creepy turn.

In fact, rather than a love story, YOU is more of a psychological thriller.

The ten-episode series, which originally premiered on Lifetime in the US, is based on a novel of the same name by Caroline Kepnes.

The series follows bookstore manager Joe who becomes besotted with aspiring writer ‘Beck’ after crossing paths with her.

“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 obsessed as he quietly and strategically removes every obstacle – and person – in his way,” Netflix’s official synopsis reads.

“Joe transforms himself from stalker to boyfriend while doing whatever it takes to eliminate all obstacles standing in his way — even if it means murder. Set in today’s 24/7 hyper-connected world, YOU explores how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation online and in real life.”

Erm, creepy.

Beck is played by Once Upon A Time actress Elizabeth Lail while Pretty Little Liars actress Shay Mitchell also co-stars.

Since dropping on Netflix on Boxing Day, the thriller has become popular with many Twitter users.
