Netflix Renews ‘YOU’ For Season 3

YOU, will be back for a 3rd Season as Netflix announce they have renewed the psychological thriller.

Based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same name, ‘YOU’ is a 21st-century love story about an obsessive, yet brilliant twentysomething who uses the hyper-connectivity of today’s technology to make the woman of his dreams fall in love with him.

Season 1 saw brilliant bookstore manager Joe (Penn Badgley – ‘Gossip Girl’) cross paths with “Beck” (Elizabeth Lail – ‘Once Upon a Time’) an aspiring writer. Using the internet and social media as his tools to gather the most intimate of details and get close to her, a charming and awkward crush quickly becomes an obsession as he quietly and strategically removes every obstacle – and person – in his way…

The 2nd Season, which launched on Boxing Day, sees Joe in the city of Los Angeles, with a new identity, “Will”, and looking for love again, which is handy as he meets her… quite literally! The object of “Will’s” interest is Love Quinn, played by Victoria Pedretti (‘Haunting Of Hill House’). Love is an aspiring chef working as a produce manager in a high-end grocery store and is uninterested in the world of social media, branding and self-promotion, focused instead on leading an interesting life. She is also tending to a deep grief – and when she meets “Will”, she senses a shared knowledge of profound, life-changing loss.‘YOU’ comes from Greg Berlanti (DC/CW shows, ‘Riverdale’) and Sera Gamble (‘The Magicians’, ‘Aquarius’, ‘Supernatural’) who serve as writers and exec producers, with Gamble as showrunner. It was announced a few weeks ago that the series had landed $7.213 million in California tax credits, making the 3rd Season considerably more likely.

YOU‘ Seasons 1 and 2 are on Netflix to binge right now.
