The Story For Netflix’s ‘You’ Season 3 Has Now Been Written, Author Confirms Netflix

If you’re a big fan of Netflix’s You and have been obsessively wondering what Joe Goldberg will get up to in Season 3, I have some good news for you. Caroline Kepnes, the author of the book series behind the TV show, has changed her Twitter bio to say that the third installment of his story has finally been completed. I haven’t been this excited for a long time!

  1. Originally, Kepnes only said two more books had been planned. Her Twitter bio previously announced that books three and four were confirmed but mentioned nothing about the progress she’d made on either. However, that all changed this week when she suddenly added the line “Yes, I finished writing the third Joe Goldberg book” to her bio on the social media site. Hurrah!
  2. You Season 3 may not be too far behind. Obviously everything is being pushed back a little because of coronavirus and the extreme measures that must be taken to ensure the safety of everyone involved in these productions, but Kepnes gave us a little hope when responding to a fan. “You3 is done and I know I keep saying ‘soonish’ but it’s truly so done that I saw possible covers last week,” she wrote.”Your patience in a pandemic means the world to me. Thank you for waiting! Soonish he’s yours. Also spoiler alert. In You3 Joe bitches about the word ‘soonish’.”
  3. We’re looking at a 2021 release date at this point. According to an AMA with executive producer Sera Gamble hosted by UNILAD on Facebook, we may get the show earlier in the year but nothing has been set in stone. “We just opened the writers’ room for season 3 of You,” she shared. “We’re aiming for early 2021 but these things are always a little hard to pin down til we’re close to ready. I will say: the new season is already BONKERS.”
  4. Yep, things are going to get even darker with Joe. While everyone involved is being incredibly tight-lipped on what exactly will happen with Joe next season, Gamble did have one word: “DARK.” No surprises there, and fans can’t wait!
