We don’t normally deal in rumours but we’ve had a number of messages asking why season 3 of the Netflix thriller “YOU” hasn’t arrived yet… There have been various rumours and even blatant fake new posts saying that it would arrive on Netflix on April 9th. Obviously that date has now passed and now I’m getting messages asking where it is. Oh, yay…
There is absolutely no chance that we will see the return of Joe and Love this month, or even next month. It’s highly unlikely that it will even be this side of Summer. Production for season 3 started in early 2020 but due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic it was brought to a stop in December 2020. Filming resumed in February 2021 and, according to a recent Tweet, filming was still ongoing on April 5th 2021:
We know that Season 3 is in the works, we just don’t know when it will be released. Our guess, if we were locked in a bookstore basement and forced to give one, would be maybe November – but who know? All we know is that it has been renewed and it’s being filmed – so just be patient, OK?
Showrunner Sera Gamble has confirmed that the hit show will return with a new 10-episode season. The series follows the obsessive Joe Goldberg as he stalks a bookstore customer using technology. The first season was based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same name and the recent season two was based on the sequel novel “Hidden Bodies”. Season two followed Joe as he makes the move to Hollywood to build a new life for himself as he again searches for love and was launches in December 2019.
According to Deadline the co-creators Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti will return as executive producers for season 3 and the stars of the show, Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti, have been confirmed to reprise their roles. You can see the trailer for season 2 below.
YOU, a Netflix Original Series, is the riveting and hypnotic story of Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), an obsessive yet brilliant New Yorker, who exploits today’s technology to win the heart of Beck (Elizabeth Lail) amid the growing suspicions of her best friend Peach (Shay Mitchell). Joe transforms himself from stalker to boyfriend while doing whatever it takes to eliminate all obstacles standing in his way — even if it means murder. Set in today’s 24/7 hyper-connected world, YOU explores how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation online and in real life.
