Wondering what's up with Joe Goldberg and his psychotic antics? You won't have to wait much longer to find out yourself because You on Netflix is coming back for its third season by the end of the year. And while we wait for all of the deranged drama to return, showrunner Sera Gamble is whetting our appetite with tasty new details about You season 3

Gamble recently tweeted that on April 23rd, the series had finally finished production on its third season, which had previously been postponed due to COVID-19. Thankfully, due to stringent safety protocols and countless testing, the production didn't experience any COVID-19 cases on set, and the cast and crew were able to complete season three safely.

While Gamble obviously is saving all the juiciest bits for the screen, she did drop a few morsels about the overall vibe of the third season. Simply, it's "f*cking bonkers," says the show exec. 

Gamble continued: “The performances are insanely good. That’s all I’ll say about that till we are ready to talk about the new season.”

We do know that the third season of You will feature new characters and a fresh setting, with Joe (Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley) and a pregnant Love (Victoria Pedretti) moving from the city to the suburbs at the end of season two.

But besides that, we'll be left theorizing and speculating about storylines until the new batch of episodes drops on Netflix. (Will Love be the new Joe? We wouldn't be shocked, given her history of getting rid of anyone who stands in her way.)

If you can't wait until then to get your Joe Goldberg fix, the third novel in the Caroline Kepnes-penned franchise, titled You Love Me, has recently been published, so pick up a copy!
