Joe Goldberg isn’t done creeping us out just yet. Netflix recently made not one, not two, but three major casting announcements for You season three, which is set to premiere in 2021.

In honor of the upcoming installments, we compiled a list of everything we know about You season three. Keep reading for all the details.

1. Will there be a third season of 'You'?

The answer—YES. The new season will consist of ten episodes, which are scheduled to debut sometime next year.

We’re not totally surprised by the renewal. Series co-creator and executive producer Sera Gamble previously teased another installment in an interview with Cosmo U.K., saying, “Absolutely, it could come back for season three. First of all, it’s up to the powers that be. We hope that a lot of people will watch the show and that it gets to continue.”

Oh, and did we mention that more than 40 million users watched You season two in its first four weeks on Netflix? Translation: It was only a matter of time.

2. Is there a cast?

Here’s what we know: Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl) will return as Joe Goldberg (aka Will Bettelheim). And yes, Victoria Pedretti (The Haunting of Bly Manor) will reprise her role as Love.

In October 2020, the streaming service confirmed the new episodes will also feature a few newcomers—Shalita Grant (NCIS: New Orleans) will play a “Mom-fluencer” named Sherry, who pretends to befriend Love.

Travis Van Winkle (Friday the 13th) will also join the cast as Cary, a wealthy man who crosses paths with Joe. Rounding out the list is Scott Speedman (Animal Kingdom), who will portray Matthew, a successful CEO and family man who’s masking “a deep well of emotion underneath.” Has Joe finally met his match?

3. What's the plot?

It’s hard to tell, since the first two seasons were based on the namesake novel by Caroline Kepnes, along with its sequel, Hidden Bodies. Although the author hasn’t released a third book, she previously responded to a fan inquiry on Goodreads and wrote, “You’ll get more Joe eventually.”

Even Gamble revealed that she already has a story line for season three. “I will say that we have an idea for season three that is SO exciting that people talk about it in the [writer’s] room every day,” she told Cosmo U.K. “So, my fingers are crossed…I’ll just say, I hope we get the chance to keep making the show.”

4. Who is Victoria Pedretti?

The 25-year-old actress plays Love in You season two, but the Netflix series isn’t her only claim to fame. Pedretti is widely known for starring in The Haunting of Hill House. In the newest season (AKA The Haunting of Bly Manor), she portrays Danielle “Dani” Clayton, a young governess who is hired by a man to look after his niece and nephew. The problem? The compound is haunted by spirits from the family’s past. *Cue the nightmares*
