Here is everything we know about You Season 3.
There aren’t a lot of thriller and suspenseful shows that really make us hang onto each and every little detail that transpires from beginning to end like that of Netflix's 'You'. This is evident by its excellent second season which just dropped on the streaming giant 26 December 2019.
And now one has to wonder when season 3 will creep its way onto our digital devices. While you need not look any further because we've got all the answers to your curious questions right here.
Before we go on from this point, we must advise you that this content will be bombarded with spoilers from the first two seasons, especially season 2. So if you haven’t seen the latest season or even the entire show, you had best start bingeing right away before you continue with this article.
Penn Badgley, the lead actor who plays Joe Goldberg – now assuming a new alias Will Bettelheim – for 'You' accidentally let it slip on Entertainment Tonight that there is indeed a Season 3.
It all happened when Badgley was asked about where we'll see Love's character go next to which he replied:
"Dare I say, I think in the third season..."
It was at that moment that Badgley pretty much violated his nondisclosure agreement with the company behind the show and tried to play defense by replying with:
"I literally know nothing about the third season."
Then when the interviewer tried to squeeze more details out of Badgley about the third season when we could expect to see it on Netflix, he nervously responded, "Technically I can’t… I mean, like, unofficially." It seems somebody is too excited to keep their nondisclosure agreement in check.
But it seems Badgley didn’t exactly need to say anything to tell us what we wanted to know all along. Deadline gave us one of the first good signs that a third season of ‘You’ was already in the works. The publication reported back in December that the third season was bestowed a $7.213 million California tax credit.
The publication also noted that while this credit doesn’t exactly ensure that a renewal is in sight, it does ensure that a series has a more financial advantage. It’s worth noting that the psychological thriller series isn’t produced by Netflix, but rather by Berlanti Productions and Warner Horizon.
In other words, it is the studio in the end that applies for a tax credit on either the pilot or an entire series if the executives feel confident about picking it up for later.
Executive producer and code-showrunner Sera Gamble spoke optimistically about a potential new season for the show, believing that it can’t come back while speaking to Cosmopolitan UK back in January 2019.
However, Gamble’s hands are tied as the final decision rests on the shoulders of the powers that be:
“First of all, it's up to the powers that be. We hope that a lot of people will watch the show and that it gets to continue. I will say that we have an idea for season 3 that is SO exciting that people talk about it in the [writer's] room everyday. So my fingers are crossed. I'll just say, I hope we get the chance to keep making the show."
Season 2's finale was truly a memorable moment that had everyone on social media eating out of the palm of its hands. It was there that Joe's entire past finally caught up with them, in spite of living under a new pseudonym and leaving behind the many ghosts that he hoped or locked up, including the one where he murdered his girlfriend.
When Joe moved from New York to Los Angeles, he assumed the new identity under the name of Will Bettelheim before eventually falling in love with a woman known as Love Quinn – portrayed by Victoria Pedretti. Ironically, she, like Joe, also has a sinister side to her where she enjoys killing people.
It was later revealed that Love was the one who murdered Candace and Delilah, telling Joe that she did it because she was pregnant.
Season 2 of 'You' gave us several answers to questions that have been writing along with us since the first one. One of those questions was what exactly happened between Candace and Joe and the kind of "unfinished business" that the former wanted to discuss with the latter. Now even though that may have been the case, it also left us with several more questions in the end as well, which is what makes for a great series.
But the biggest WTH moment belongs to Love Quinn who in fact, was responsible for murdering Delilah (Carmella Zumbado) – Joe's neighbor. To make matters even more twisted, she even murdered Candace and showed no regrets or remorse over her death as she was seeking to reject the relationship between her and Joe.
Joe described the situation with him and Love as though he was going through some kind of bad karma, or it was as if he was in a cage. This was probably him being fearful that that can only be trouble brewing up going forward and that if it weren’t for his unborn child, he probably wouldn’t even think twice about sticking around.
But it was the final moments of the season that really took the cake, which was Joe getting back to his roots by finding his new You, who was his next-door neighbor – an unsuspecting innocent woman.
Joe echoes by saying:
“I will figure out a way, a way to get to you. See you soon, neighbor.”
Given that season 1 took place in New York, and season 2 was filmed in California, which looks as if he’s going to be sticking around for a while, it seems as if the location based on that finale will still take place in California
