In news that fans of You will "wolf" to hear, the Netflix series has been officially renewed for season 3.
News of the renewal comes after You recently debuted its second season. Although the latest batch of episodes did end with a major cliffhanger, it was unclear whether the show would return. Penn Badgley had accidentally let it slip that a new season was a possibility, but as Entertainment Weekly confirms, a return to a world of narration and murder boxes is now officially set for 2021. The third season will include ten episodes.
Both Penn and Victoria Pedretti are confirmed for the return, Entertainment Weekly reports. There's no word on whether our favorite sassy and technologically-savvy teenager, Jenna Ortega aka Ellie, will reprise her role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, additional casting news will be announced at a later date.
There's no official premiere date, yet, but there is speculation regarding third season subject matter. As the series is based on the novels by Caroline Kepnes, it's possible the new episodes could follow the books' plots. Kepnes had previously detailed that she was working on a third and fourth book, and it would reportedly revolve around Joe's attempts to become a family man. There is also no confirmed release date for the novel sequels, so as EW points out, it is possible that a third season of You could also follow its own Netflix storyline, too.
But no matter the plot, we're surely in for more of Joe's extremely bad behavior (and the internet's continued crush on him anyway). As Victoria recently put it to Teen Vogue: “People are going to say dumb sh*t. I don't truly believe that people want to sleep with a serial killer. It's just that Penn Badgley is not actually a serial killer, he's a sweet man," she says. “The amount of tolerance we have for Joe's less than ideal behavior is so high because our expectations for men are extremely low, which is probably a good way to stay not constantly angry in the world. But it's still not fair, right? We don't live in a fair world, and I think that is what all of this is meant to emphasize.”
