How long until ‘You’ season 3: The first two seasons of YOU on Netflix were undeniably good, despite its intense creepiness factor. Penn Badgley took on the role of Joe Goldberg, a psychotic young man obsessed with love in the most unhealthy way.
Badgley gained a lot of experience playing a cyberstalker during his days playing Dan Humphrey Gossip GirlNow that fans have binge-watched seasons 1 and 2, everyone is waiting for updates YOU season 3. Here’s what we know about the coming season so far.
TV aficionados and movie buffs alike have been well informed of the drastic production changes and movie schedules that have become a reality in the course of the global COVID-19 pandemic. To film YOU season 3 was put on hold for quite some time, but filming could finally begin from February 2021. This means that the third season will likely be released in late 2021.
The first season premiered in 2018 and the second season followed closely in 2019. YOU Season 3 was set to be filmed and released in 2020, but progress was clearly not going as planned. The end of 2021 is still reasonable, although the general eagerness to see what happens next is unprecedented.
Which actors will return and participate?
Penn Badgley handles the cases in the titular role of Joe Goldberg, adding creepy looks and obsessive inner monologues to the series in all the perfect moments. He has been confirmed to return for this YOU season 3. Victoria Pedretti returns as Love Quinn, conspiratorial and cunning as ever. But pregnant this time! It is very likely that John Stamos will return as Dr. Nicky, finally ready to talk about what he knows.
Jenny Ortega played the role of Ellie Alves in Season 2 and although Joe Goldberg tried to chase her out of town, it’s very likely she won’t let him go that easily. New cast members to get excited about include Chilling Adventures of Sabrina‘s Tati Gabrielle as the no-nonsense librarian Marienne & Crazy ex girlfriendScott Michaels as a curious TV reporter named Ryan who could expose Joe Goldberg.
What’s going to happen in Season 3?
From season 2 on, many questions remain unanswered. Starting with the death of Delilah Alves – Love Quinn killed her and Joe Goldberg covered it up, so will one of them get caught and charged? What implications will arise now that Love Quinn also killed Candace Stone? Joe Goldberg let Will Bettelheim live, but will that decision haunt him?
Is it true that Love Quinn murdered her first husband, James Kennedy? Are viewers finally going to get a little more insight into Joe’s mother now that she’s still alive? What’s going to happen to poor little Paco, the boy next door who grows up in a toxic environment? Are Joe & Love Quinn even romantically involved or is he heading towards the new goal he saw in the Season 2 finale?
Will there be a season 4 to follow?
High ratings and positive reviews from critics and fans alike lead us to believe that a fourth season will most likely follow YOU season 3 if the story is not quite finished. The show is based on a series of books written by Caroline Kepnes, which means that if she chooses to write more books, the show can indeed follow the new storylines she creates.
A fourth season of YOU could leave the door open for the possible return of Guinevere Beck, Joe Goldberg’s season 1 victim. Keep in mind that viewers never actually witnessed her death. Nor have we ever seen her body! Everything is possible.
