Netflix renews YOU for season 3
He’s still watching you.
Netflix has officially picked up the Penn Badgley-led drama YOU for a third season. Based on the books YOU and Hidden Bodies, from author Caroline Kepnes, YOU follows romantic/stalker/murderer Joe Goldberg as he figures out just how far he’ll go for love. (The answer: very far.)
The series, which originally premiered on Lifetime, debuted its second season on Netflix on Dec. 26. The renewal doesn’t come as much of a surprise seeing as how the show has gained a large following, not to mention that season 2 left a number of unanswered questions.
Season 3 will feature 10 new episodes from executive producers Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti, with both Badgley and season 2 addition Victoria Pedretti set to reprise their roles as Joe and Love, the soon-to-be parents. Although Kepnes is currently finishing up a third book, it’s yet to be known just how much the show will follow it, particularly given the changes the show has already made to the story.
The new season is set to premiere in 2021.
