The murder cage memories and surprise twists found in the second season of You are still fresh in our memories, but there's great news for those eager to return to a world narrated by Joe Goldberg. Mere days after the new season officially started streaming, and Penn Badgley already confirmed that a third season is "unofficially" planned.
When the former Gossip Girl star sat down for a chat with Entertainment Tonight to discuss all things You, he had a major oops moment. At one point, Penn was asked about Victoria Pedretti's character and what he thought of her inclusion in Joe's world.
We'll steer clear of spoilers for those still watching, but in the interview, Penn touched briefly on what happened in the second season. Just as he began to contemplate what might happen next, saying, "Dare I say, I think in the third season," he stopped, catching himself. Rolling his eyes, he said, "Oh, god."
Caught in the accidental slip, Penn was asked to explain further about a possible return of the series. Unfortunately, he couldn't share anything more, saying, "I literally know nothing about the third season." He joked that he could "unofficially" confirm a return, but acknowledged, "I'm not the person that can say anything official." So there we have it, a third season of You is "unofficially" coming to Netflix.
Although the news remains unconfirmed for now, a third season wouldn't be out of the question. In addition to the second season's major cliffhangers, Random House announced that the book series, which the Netflix show is based on, will receive a third and fourth novel. As reported by Entertainment Weekly, author Caroline Kepnes intends to focus the new chapters on Joe's attempts to become a family man in the Pacific Northwest. TBQH, something tells us that settling down isn't exactly a part of Joe's plans.
