Will The Sexy Serial Killer Netflix Show 'You' Have A Season 3?

It's been a long time since we left Joe on You—and now, in Season 2, he's starting a brand-new life. He's moved to L.A. and changed his name, but killing Beck didn't quite make him change anything else about himself, because he's zeroed in on a new target and he's back to his old tricks.

The new episodes were thrust upon us the day after Christmas by Netflix (the creepy post-holiday season binge we never knew we wanted), but even so, it's definitely not enough. Some of our questions will almost certainly be answered by the Season 2 finale—especially when it comes to Candace—but judging by the first season, the new finale is definitely going to leave fans wanting more.

So will there be a You Season 3, and if so, when? Here's everything we know so far about the future of the show.

The showrunner already has ideas.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan UK, executive producer Sera Gamble shared that she already has plans in mind for Joe's adventures (if you wanna call them that) in a potential Season 3….Although she didn't give away any secrets.

"I will say that we have an idea for season three that is SO exciting that people talk about it in the [writers'] room every day," said Sera. "So my fingers are crossed....I'll just say, I hope we get the chance to keep making the show."

Same. Tell everyone you know to watch—Netflix can't possibly say no to huge streaming numbers!

The show just got a huge incentive to continue.

According to Deadline, earlier this month, You was awarded a California tax credit of $7.213 million (P365.88 million) for the production of a third season. Of course, that's not a guarantee that it'll happen, but it's certainly a good reason to renew—or seven million reasons, give or take.

A third book is on the way.

For fans who may not have known, You is based on a series of books by author Caroline Kepnes, with the first season based on the first book and the second season based on the sequel, Hidden Bodies—with a few details changed, of course. And as Entertainment Weekly reported back in May, a third and a fourth book are coming, which gives the powers that be behind You plenty of material to work with.

Although a release date for the third book hasn't been set, it's expected to be about Joe's "move to the Pacific Northwest with a plan to become a family man in his own unique way."

Uh, yeah. That's going to be interesting.

There could be a long wait.

Of course, You's journey from Season 1 to Season 2 isn't a typical one—after Lifetime (the show's original network) quietly backed out of their second season renewal before the show was picked up by Netflix in December 2018. It's been more than a full year since Season 1 aired, so it would make sense if another year passes before we see more of Joe. Like, probably the very end of 2020, if not the beginning of 2021.

But the future for You definitely seems positive, so everyone should cross their fingers that it happens. And maybe start rethinking your social media privacy settings, just in case anyone out there is watching the show for creeper tips. Can't hurt!
