Fans love the soapy drama starring Penn Badgley, Elizabeth Lail, Victoria Pedretti, and the rest of the great cast of this show. Now, fans are wondering what’s happening with You season 3.
Will there be a new season of the Netflix show? When is You season 3 coming out?
If you’re in that boat, we’re right there with you! It’s been a really long time since You season 2 premiered on Netflix in December 2019.
Is there going to be a You season 3?
Yes! You season 3 is definitely happening at Netflix. The Netflix original series was renewed for season 3 almost immediately after the season 2 premiere. That’s how much Netflix and fans love this show that’s based on the book series and characters created by Caroline Kepnes.
Netflix usually waits a few months before announcing renewals, but not so with You. This show had a quick renewal.
Normally, when we see Netflix shows get quick renewals, we don’t have to wait a super long time between seasons. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the You season 3 production and release schedule.
What is You season 3 going to be about?
If you watched You season 2, you know where this story is going.
Joe and Love have moved into the ‘burbs. They have a baby on the way, presumably! And, Joe appears to be fascinated with his neighbor. What that means, we don’t know, but we do know how Joe gets when he’s obsessed with someone or something.
We haven’t seen the full synopsis for season 3 yet. That should be announced soon.
You season 3 release date
Although Netflix has not announced the You season 3 release date yet, a release window has been announced. Ted Sarandos said that You season 3 would be released sometime in Q4 2021, which means we’ll see the new season sometime between October and the end of the year.
Production on season 3 wrapped in the spring of 2021. Based on post-production timelines and how long these things usually take, it’s definitely possible that we’ll see You season 3 on Netflix in October 2021.
That’s a tough month because of Halloween, the return of fall shows, etc. But, Netflix doesn’t have much announced for October yet, so it’s possible that You season 3 could be paired with Locke and Key season 2 in October as the two big shows for that month.
It’s also possible that Netflix could save You season 3 for a holiday release. The first two seasons were released around Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and that was a major success for Netflix. Will they do that again? Definitely possible.
I think we’ll see You season 3 in October 2021 right now. That’s my prediction, and I’ll just my prediction when we get a little closer to the month if I need to. But, we have seen shorter windows between post-production and release for some Netflix shows this year. Hopefully, that will happen with You season 3 and the new season will be ready for release in October.
Stay tuned for more news about You season 3!
