Who is Charlie Barnett?

Barnett is a 31-year-old actor who went to Juilliard. After guest-starring on shows like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Barnett secured his first major role on Chicago Fire. He starred in the series from 2012-2015. After that, he starred in the second season of ABC’s Secrets and Lies.

Then, he had a starring role on the short-lived The CW series, Valor from 2017-2018 before moving on to his most-well known role to-date, Netflix’s Russian Doll, in 2019. He stayed in the Netflix family with a starring role on the streaming service’s Tales of the City in 2019, and got a recurring role on the final season of The CW’s DC Comics series, Arrow. He is expected to reprise his critically-acclaimed role of Alan Zaveri on Russian Doll when its second season premieres.

What do we know about Season 2?

The second season of You is coming very soon! It hits Netflix on Dec. 26, 2019. Per Netflix’s official description of the series sent to press members, the second season will see Joe (Penn Badgley)’s long-lost ex, Candace (Ambyr Childers), now ready to teach him a lesson.

The streaming service says, “Season two finds him [Joe] on the run from Candace — leaving New York City for his own personal hell: Los Angeles. He’s fresh out of an intense relationship that ended in murder. The last thing he expects is to meet an incredible new woman but he’s falling in love again — with a woman named Love (Victoria Pedretti). Is history repeating? Or will this time be the real thing? Joe’s just crazy enough to risk finding out.”
