You season 3 is formally on the way. Ten new episodes of Netflix’s massive series are coming, but we may have a little while longer to wait before we find out exactly what the future has in store for everyone’s favorite stalker/murderer/builder of glass cages. Season 2 ended on a dramatic note with lifeless bodies aplenty, so we’re itching to learn what happens next in Netflix’s highly bingeable thriller.
While we wait for You season, we have some tasty morsels of advice to tide us over, including a start of filming date and a long list of new cast members. We’ve done some study that would give Joe Goldberg a run for his money and put together what we know so far about the Netflix series. We’ve done the maths and awarded you a prediction of when we may be able to anticipate a trailer along with a launch date. Read on to discover more about You season 3.
Your Season 3 Release Date
We recommend you stay at least 6 feet from Joe Goldberg at all times.

You season 3 began filming in November 2020, but there’s no word on a release date yet. We can suppose, however. Season 2 was released on December 26, 2019, with filming taking place between February and June 2019. Consequently, if we’re looking at a similar interval for period 3 (i.e. four months of filming), we can expect production to wrap in March 2021. That means we might be looking at a September 2021 release date, even in case a similar six-month gap follows between the end of filming and the year hitting Netflix. In other words, unless a specific pandemic gets in the way…
You Season 3 Cast
We are aware that Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti are returning to the You year 3 cast as Joe and Love. Other than that, it’s safe to say we can expect a couple of new faces. This will not come as a surprise — Joe and Love jumped from L.A. to the suburbs following the events of the Season 2 finale, so that they were bound to create some new friends (and enemies).
So those who are their new neighbors? First of all, The Vampire Diaries’ Michaela McManus will play with Natalie, the brand new item of Joe’s obsessive affections. Next up, NCIS’s Shalita Grant will play with Sherry, a”mom-influencer” who pretends to welcome Love into her clique, while Scorpion’s Travis Van Winkle is going to function as wealthy Cary, who invites Joe to his inner circle.
Shannon Chan-Kent is Kiki, a loyal member of Sherry’s mean girl clique, while Christopher Sean will perform with her husband Brandon. Meanwhile, Chris O’Shea is Andrew, a stay-at-home dad and yet another member of Sherry’s social circle. His husband Jackson is going to be performed by Bryan Safi.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s Tati Gabrielle is Marienne, a no-nonsense, uptight librarian who keeps an eye on what’s happening in the area. The Good Wife’s Ben Mehl will perform her colleague, Dante, who’s far more chilled out.
Other members of this new community comprise Theo, a school student played by Dylan Arnold who has a challenging relationship with his stepfather and a propensity to become mixed up in other people’s business. Homeland’s Mackenzie Astin will play Gil, a mild-mannered and good-hearted geology professor and Daredevil’s Ayelet Zurer will play a couple’s therapist named Dr. Chandra. Agents of SHIELD’s Jack Fisher will play with a youthful Joe in flashbacks.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend alum Scott Michael Foster joins the cast as Ryan, a TV reporter who’s well-liked at the area but has his own secrets and a”commanding, calculating demeanor that he reserves for those closest to him”. Phew. Got that?
You Season 3 Trailer: When Can We Expect One?
The brief answer is that we don’t know when we’ll get a You season 3 trailer. However, we can hazard a guess depending on the season 2 release program. As we mentioned above, the last season expired on December 26, 2019, along with the very first trailer fell on December 16. This was preceded by a teaser trailer on December 5. That means we could (hopefully) expect a teaser trailer around three weeks before the series begins, and a complete trailer around ten times afterward. If our predictions are correct, keep your eyes peeled in September 2021.
You season 3 plot
Apart from the hints, we can pick up from the new cast of characters, the storyline of You 3 has been kept under wraps. But, we could also expect to observe the outcome of the events at the end of season 2.
For one thing, Love is pregnant, or is she? And if she is, is your infant actually Joe’s? Another thing we learned at the end of season 2 is that Love is far from trusted. She murdered both Delilah (Carmela Zumbado) and Candace (Ambyr Childers), in addition to showing to Joe that she played him in his own game in their own connection, he was the only one being manipulated, rather than the manipulator.
There were lots of dead bodies at the end of season 2, actually, if you recall: Love’s brother (James Scully) also died in the summer finale, and naturally, there was the unintentional murder of Henderson (Chris D’Elia) earlier in the season. Love succeeded in pinning Candace and Henderson’s deaths on Forty, while Delilah’s murder has been staged as a suicide. But who is to say these ghosts will not continue to haunt Joe and Love from the suburbs? And, naturally, there’s a whole host of new faces in season 3 with the capability to cause trouble for the murdering duo we can’t wait.
While we wait for You season 3 to arrive, be sure that you check out everything we know about another Netflix series, The Witcher season 2.
