Hidden Bodies is a thriller novel by Caroline Kepnes, published in February 2016.[1] It is the sequel to her 2014 novel, You. It was loosely adapted in the second season of the Netflix thriller series, You.[2][3]

Synopsis[edit]

Joe Goldberg came to Los Angeles to start over, to forget about what happened in New York. But in a darkened room in Soho House everything suddenly changed. She is like no one he's ever met before. She doesn't know about his past and never can. The problem is, hidden bodies don't always stay that way.

Reception[edit]

Anthony Breznican from Entertainment Weekly gave praise to the novel, stating that "as satire of a self-absorbed society, Kepnes hits the mark, cuts deep, and twists the knife".[4]

TV adaptation[edit]

In February 2015, it was announced that Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble would develop a television series based on the novel at Showtime.[5] Two years later, it was announced that the series was purchased by Lifetime and put on fast-track development.[6] You premiered on September 9, 2018.[7] On July 26, 2018, ahead of the series premiere, Lifetime announced that the series had been renewed for a second season.[8][9] On December 3, 2018, it was confirmed that Lifetime had passed on a second season of the series, and that Netflix had picked it up.[10]
