Following the arrival of season 2 in December 2019, You was quickly renewed by Netflix for season 3 and fans hoped that the next instalment would not be far away.
That was before the Covid-19 pandemic emerged and caused production delays across the film and TV industry.
At long last, it was finally announced that season 3 would be releasing on Netflix in October 2021, almost two years since the previous instalment.
But for fans who want to watch as soon as the new season is out, when is the release time of You season 3 and how many episodes will there be in total?
You season 2 recap
Season 2 of You arrived on Netflix on December 26th, 2019, providing the perfect viewing for the week between Christmas and New Year.
After season 1 followed Joe Goldberg’s murderous antics in New York, season 2 saw the book-loving killer move to Los Angeles to start afresh under a new name, Will Bettelheim – the real Will was locked up in Joe’s basement.
His plans were complicated when he met avid chef Love Quinn and it wasn’t long before Joe’s obsessive habits returned.
However, by the end of season 2, Love reveals that she has actually been pulling the strings behind their relationship all along and that she meticulously studied Joe’s past in order to make him fall for her, making them a match made in heaven.
Season 2 ends with the couple leaving the big city for the Californian suburb of Madre Linda where they can finally put their murderous histories behind him – but not for long.
You season 3 release date and time
Season 3 of You arrives on Netflix on Friday, October 15th, 2021 and will be released at midnight Pacific Time in the US.
Like most Netflix releases, You season 3 will be released around the world at the same time.
This translates to 3am ET in the US, 8am here in the UK, 12:30pm in India and 6pm in Syndey, Australia.
In season 3, we catch up with Joe and Love in their new suburban paradise. The couple are now married and have a young baby named Henry to care for.
While it may seem like they’re made for each other, Joe still has lingering doubts about Love’s intentions and when the couple’s neighbour catches Joe’s eye, matters take another murderous turn.
How many episodes in season 3?
Season 3 of You consists of 10 episodes in total.
The episode count should come as little surprise to existing fans as both seasons 1 and 2 both had 10 episodes each.
Over the course of You’s first two seasons, the majority of episodes had a runtime of 45-to-50 minutes and we’d expect the same in season 3.
Ahead of the new season’s release, Netflix unveiled the titles of the upcoming episodes:
- And They Lived Happily Ever After
- So I Married An Axe Murderer
- Missing White Woman Syndrome
- Hands Across Madre Linda
- Into the Woods
- We’re All Mad Here
- Swing and a Miss
- Red Flag
- What is Love?
On top of that, Netflix has also confirmed that You will be returning for season 4.
You season 3 arrives on Netflix on Friday, October 15th, 2021.
