Based on the plot of the third book, You Love Me, by Caroline Kepnes which was just published earlier this year, there will be plenty of twists and turns.

Almost two years have passed since we last checked in with Joe and Love, so where did we last leave off?

Joe is set to become a husband and father and has moved with Love to a suburban town called Madre Linda in Northern California.

In the last episode of season 2 we were teased with a new obsession for a neighbour next door - will Joe be able to keep it together?

Who is Mark Blum?

You Season 3, episode 1 features a touching tribute to Mark Blum, who played the bookstore owner Mr. Ivan Mooney, in the first season.

Mr Blum died in March 2020 due to Covid complications in New York at the age of 69.

Will there be a season 4?

Netflix confirmed there will be a fourth season, before its third season has even premiered.

This will reassure fans that even after they binge season 3, the story won't end there!
