While we don't have a firm release date for YOU season 3 yet, there's already much to speak about it. From how Season 2 concluded, to which new cast members will appear in the new season.

What happened in You TV show

When YOU returned for its second season, Joe Goldberg had relocated to Los Angeles, his idea of hell. His name is now Will, and he has a job at a vegan grocery store/book cafe, where he meets his journalist neighbour and her feisty little sister. At the end of the new season of YOU, Joe ultimately realizes his sins and locks himself in a glass cage until Love intervenes with her twisted methods.

Since Joe's new love interest is his upper-class neighbour, the new season's plot is very different from what we've seen before. Another possible explanation for Love's rise to series regular is that the episode will centre on her pregnancy and changes Joe's feelings towards her.
