Joe (Penn Badgley) keeps an eye on Beck (Elizabeth Lail) in "You."

Netflix’s ‘You’ returning for third season

“You,” the Netflix thriller that has become a trending topic and source for dozens of social media memes, will return for its third season soon, Netflix announced Tuesday morning.

Netflix announced on Twitter that the popular series will return, teasing with the tagline “See you soon, neighbor. You S3 is coming.”


The series gives a glimpse into the sorted dating life of bookstore manager Joe Goldberg, played by Penn Badgley. In each season, Joe has pursued different love interests. The Netflix hit is based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same name. The show started on Lifetime in December 2018, but the series is now owned by the streaming juggernaut. The second season, which premiered Dec. 26, is based on Kepnes’ second novel, “Hidden Bodies.”

When the show first premiered on Netflix in January 2018, almost 40 million people tuned in. Season 3 will feature 10 new episodes from executive producers Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti, with Badgley and Season 2 addition Victoria Pedretti set to reprise their roles as Joe and Love, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Take a peek at the Season 2 trailer for “You,” which is now streaming on Netflix.
