Speaking about bringing back characters in You season three, co-creator Sera Gamble told The Hollywood Reporter, “I don't see why not. Part of the fun of Joe is that he is not very good at doing bad things. He doesn't plan them well. He doesn't execute them perfectly like a mastermind.

“And so there is always the worry that things from his past are going to catch up with him. What's great about that is it creates a landscape for the show where you do get to revisit your favorite characters moving forward.”

She added, “One of my favorite things to do is bring back a dead person to haunt you. So the door is wide open for everybody's favorite characters.”

How many episodes in You season three?

There are ten episodes in You season three.

All episodes are available to view on Netflix.

What will the plot be?

You season three will follow the shocking events of the season two finale..

Season two ended with Love Quinn confessing to murdering Delilah and Candace, and revealing to Joe that she was pregnant with his baby.

The couple moved to the suburbs to have and raise their baby, but viewers got a final revelation that Joe’s obsessive fixations had not gone away.

At the end of the series, viewers saw that he had turned his attention towards their new neighbour. In a teaser for the third season, Joe is seen staring at his neighbour from behind the fence saying to himself : “This is just the beginning. Because this is where I had to be exactly where I had to be to meet You."

Sera Gamble explained that the final scene shows “Joe is still Joe in a way that's not going to be great for Joe…. It seems clear that he's falling into some version of that same pattern. I can't say that we know exactly what a season three would be, but I can say things won't go well for Joe.”
