YOU Season 3: Release Date & Story Details | Screen Rant

Will Netflix move forward with YOU season 3? In December 2019, the popular series returned for a second installment. Here’s what to expect next.

Last Updated: May 22, 2020

Here's what we know about Netflix's YOU season 3 now that season 2 is out. Based on Caroline Kepnes' 2014 novel of the same name, the serial killer-themed television series has been a massive hit for Netflix after initially premiering on Lifetime. YOU season 2 - a Netflix Original - released in December 2019.

YOU revolves around the book-loving Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), a charismatic man who also happens to be a killer. In YOU season 1, he obsesses over an NYU student named Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail), and uses social media to stay one step ahead after committing a series of crimes. YOU season 2 takes place in Los Angeles as Joe - now going by Will Bettelheim - forms a relationship with an endearing chef named Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), and attempts to maintain a relatively normal lifestyle.

The final episodes of YOU season 2 focus on the murder of reporter Delilah Alves (Carmela Zumbado). After Joe and Love's brother Forty (James Scully) trip out on acid, the former can't quite remember what happened the night before, or how Delilah ended up dead. Joe feels guilty but senses that maybe he's not responsible for this particular murder. Ultimately, someone close to him proves to not only be the true killer, but also a repeat offender. Here's everything to expect for YOU season 3 on Netflix.

Netflix officially ordered YOU season 3 on January 14, 2020. This fit with Netflix's usual pattern of announcing renewal decisions within one to two months of a season premiering on the service. In this case, it was likely an easy decision as YOU season 2 became an undeniable hit, with fans obsessively discussing the series' newest plot turns all over social media.

Based on the December Netflix release dates for both YOU season 1 and YOU season 2 on Netflix, it would stand to reason that YOU season 3 would premiere in December 2020. However, Netflix has confirmed that season 3 won't debut until sometime in 2021. If they stick with the usual December release, fans could be waiting nearly two years before catching up with Joe Goldberg again.

YOU season 2 on Netflix ends with a serial killer twist. Joe's ex-girlfriend Candace Stone (Ambyr Childers) manages to literally cage him up next to Delilah's body, only she's subsequently murdered by none other than Love, who then reveals that she killed as an adolescent to protect Forty from harm. The power dynamics suddenly change in Netflix's YOU season 2, as Joe becomes submissive once Love explains her calculated plan to cover up her crimes, and also reveals that she's pregnant with Joe's child. The couple doubles down by committing to each other, and Forty later dies while trying to protect his sister.

The final moments of YOU season 2 wrap up the season-long storyline, but also tease YOU season 3's story. Joe prepares for the next phase of his life as a father (alongside a fellow killer), but his visions of an ideal lifestyle are interrupted by an intriguing next door neighbor, a female who's reading classic novels in the backyard. But is this woman a new YOU character, or someone from the Joe's past? At this point, it seems that Netflix subscribers will find out in 2021, when YOU season 3 ultimately arrives.
