It Looks Like Season Three Of 'You' Is Officially Happening
Oh the excitement!
Fans have been going to wild for the American psychological thriller series, based on the Caroline Kepnes book series of the same name, since it landed on the streaming service in November 2018, following its original slot on Lifetime.
And now Deadline revealed that the production on Season 3 of You has received a tax credit from the state of California to finance the production.
And while the production team or Netflix have yet to confirm a third season - presumably because the second series isn't out yet - this is a strong indicator that a third helping of Joe and his impulsive killing streak has been approved.
The joyous news comes a day after the second series has been receiving rave reviews by critics ahead of its Boxing Day release.
The synopsis for Season 2 reads: "When we last saw Joe (Penn Badgley) his heart was tragically broken and his past just caught up with him in the form of long-lost ex-girlfriend Candace (Ambyr Childers), a woman now hell-bent on teaching him a lesson.
"Season 2 finds Joe on the run from Candace, leaving New York City for his own personal hell: Los Angeles.
"He's fresh out of an intense relationship that ended in murder. The last thing he expects is to meet an incredible new woman but he's falling in love again - with a woman named Love. Is history repeating? Or will this time be the real thing? Joe's just crazy enough to risk finding out."
But more importantly, critics are also branding the follow-up as "addictive" - goodbye social life over Christmas.
"The ending might feel a little too trivial for some, but some unexpected developments will radically change the pace of this cautionary tale if the story continues," wrote Eamonn Jacobs for HeroicHollywood.com.
"Penn Badgley's Joe Goldberg remains a controversial character, but the new season of You is definitely addictive."
While Amanda Bell for TV Guide added that this season is a "a very edge-of-your-seat experience" especially when it comes to the series finale.
You season 2 arrives to Netflix on Boxing Day.
