Netflix has just revealed that You season 3 is officially in production and yes, we're struggling to contain our excitement. 

The streaming platform, which was forced to pause production on all of its major shows following the outbreak of coronavirus earlier this year, has found a way to successfully resume shooting schedules while adhering to social distancing rules. 

The good news means that the studio has now confirmed that Penn Badgley and the rest of the You cast are back in action for the third season of the popular drama. 

When does You season 3 come out?

Announcing the news in an eery tweet, Netflix wrote: "We recommend you stay at least 6 feet from Joe Goldberg at all times," alongside Badgley, who plays the creepy  Joe Golberg, wearing a face covering that says "Hello You". 

No word yet on when season 3 of You will finally hit the streaming platform, but we've got our fingers firmly crossed that it won't take long.

The show, which is based on Caroline Kepnes' novel of the same name, blew up after Netflix added the first season to its roster in 2018. As fans (all of us) will know, it saw New York bookstore manager Joe become infatuated with  aspiring writer named Guinevere Beck (played by Elizabeth Lail) when she walks into the shop one day. 

The story escalates as he develops a delusional obsession, which proves to be a dangerous pattern in his life and things take a very dark turn. In the second season of the show, Joe moves to Los Angeles, where once again he finds a new victim to his deadly infatuation. Despite his hopes of rebuilding himself as a better person, his stalkerish ways and murderous behaviour continues when he meets Love Quinn (played by Victoria Pedretti - who gave us major jewelry envy). 

However this time, Joe may have actually met his match as the last few episodes of the season sees Love confess that she not only knows all about Joe's darkness, but has secrets of her own. She tells him that she actively sought him out as she believes that they're meant to be because of their troublesome upbringings and the two actually end up together. The season draws to a close as the two move to the suburbs with Love pregnant with their first child. But how long will it take before Joe's back to his old ways?

Sadly, a trailer is also not yet available so we don't much about what will happen to Joe and Love.

Teasing the upcoming season, Pedretti told NBC News: "It's f**king wild. I personally think it's already stronger than last season."

She continued: "It's everything I hoped for in imagining a world in which Joe and Love could be really confronted with themselves, and it creates so much space for so much tragedy and hilarity, and I'm so psyched."

So are we!
