Just in time for spooky season, Netflix has dropped some new information about the hotly anticipated third season of its psychological thriller series, You. The last time we saw sadboi serial killer Joe Goldberg (played by saboi Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley), he was hiding out with unhinged girlfriend Love (The Haunting of Bly Manor’s Victoria Pedretti) in the suburbs, having yeeted out of LA following his west coast crime spree. 

With rona shutting down production right across the film and TV industry this year, we were a little worried that we might never find out what happened next. After all, earlier this month Netflix guillotined a bunch of its series (bye bye final season of Glow, no more Debby Ryan hair moments in Insatiable) following an initial cull at the beginning of 2020 (RIP The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina). But You has managed to survive! Finally, some good news in this annus horribilis. 

So what do we have to look forward to in the show’s upcoming third installment? Well, two new characters, for a start! Shalita Grant, who you might recognise from Search Party, will join the cast as Sherry, a “mom-fluencer” who befriends pregnant Love. But this is You so things are inevitably never as they seem. The character is “actually a mean girl who only pretends to welcome Love into her social circle”, E! News reports. And Joe is getting a similar plotline. Travis Van Winkle will join as Cary, a wealthy man who invites the new dad and part time serial killer into his inner circle. 

Aside from that, well we don’t know much yet. Season one and two of You dropped during consecutive winters, but with rona-postponements rife, we might have to wait a little longer than December for season three. In the meantime though, some good news! Caroline Kepnes, who wrote the books upon which the first two seasons were based, is already working on a third and fourth installment in the series. Number three, titled You Love Me, is slated for an April 2021 release date. It sees Joe ditching the city for a quiet life and a new, wholesome job in a local library. Sounds sus, but okay.
