Now, this is the news that 2020 needs!

Calling all You fans…

Today is your lucky day!

And it’s all to do with the “mystery neighbor” in the highly-anticipated third season. Keep on reading to see who she is…

Now, the obsession started when Netflix’s You hit our screens.

Perfect for those in the post-Christmas slump, the psychological thriller followed the ill-fated romantic pursuits of a terrifying sociopath, named Joe.

In the series, Joe becomes absolutely obsessed with a writing student and all-around Millenial cliche named Guinevere Beck, stopping at nothing to gain her affections.

Some of Joe’s actions are pretty questionable.

And by questionable, we mean terrifying. What starts with him intensely investigating Beck’s social media accounts quickly descends into some full-blown stalking. The girl seriously needed to invest in some curtains.

By the end of series one, not only were all of Beck’s closest acquaintances murdered but (spoiler alert), Beck had to go too. She simply knew too much about Joe’s horrifying habits.

Although (worryingly enough), Joe seemed to have managed to go on a full-blown killing spree without consequences – and there was an even more bizarre reaction to his behavior.

Yep, that’s right. Pretty much the whole of the internet developed a huge crush on him. This is why we can’t have nice things.

Meaning a second season wasn’t far around the corner.

After the trail of destruction Joe left behind in New York, season 2 of You had to have a slight change of scenery.

Joe moved cross country to Los Angeles, with the best intentions to turn over a new leaf and leave all the creepiness and crimes back in NYC.

As Beck is (sadly) no more, Joe obviously needed a new victim – sorry, sorry, girlfriend. Joe’s new victim, Love Quinn, was played by Victoria Pedretti and she certainly threw a spanner in the works.

Joe’s mysterious ex, Candace, who we believed for all of season one to be dead, was back in season 2 to teach Joe a serious lesson.

And that was that Joe was utterly unable to outrun his past for too long. You can take the man away from stalking, but you can’t take the stalker out of the man, after all!

The second series of You was based also on Kepnes’ follow up book.

The second book, called Hidden Bodies, came out in 2016.

“Joe is always trying to be a good guy but yet somehow he’s finding himself in these thriller, horror kind of situations. It’s terrible for him but I think it’s going to be so much fun for the audience,” the show’s producer, Sera Gamble said.

“My career is full of blood and gore and monsters,” Gamble explained, much to fans delight.

Of course, You season 2 was a huge success upon its release…

Which left fans asking… will there be another season?!

Our wishes have been granted.

Yep, that’s right. The star of the show was the one who accidentally revealed that season 3 is on the horizon… just days after the release of season 2!  

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the actor slipped up while talking about the possibility of a female killer. “She doesn’t appear to be the same kind of person. She doesn’t appear to be the same kind of predator. She doesn’t appear to be the same kind of… you know, dare I say, in the third season – oh, god!”

He slapped his head and said, “I literally know nothing about the third season.” Nice try, Penn. Nice try.

And some official news has slowly been trickling in about the third season.

Fans are dying to find out who Joe’s female neighbor is, as teased in the finale of season 2.

And alongside this announcement, fans are unbelievably hyped to hear that the third season is officially in production with an amazing selfie of Badgley wearing a customized You mask.

And as for that mystery neighbor?

Variety explained: “Married to a powerful man, Natalie is a professional and social success. But she sees through the shallow, Stepford-esque vibe that surrounds her, and beneath her wry exterior, she leads a secret life. One that Joe is willing to work hard to learn more about.”

And fans are feeling excited about the news.
