(Pocket-lint) - Psychological thriller 'You' is back for a third season after nearly two years. Joe Goldberg is living with Love - who is pregnant with his child - in a suburban home. If you think that means Joe has changed from his old obsessive ways though, think again.

Here is everything you need to know about 'You' season three, including when it will be released, how to watch it, how to catch up on previous seasons and what to expect from the third installment.

'You' season 3 release date

Netflix has confirmed season 3 of 'You' will be released on 15 October 2021. That's almost two years after the release of season two, so fans have been waiting a while. 

How and where to watch 'You' season 3

'You' is a Netflix Original, which means you'll be needing a Netflix subscription if you want to watch the latest season of 'You' when it is released.

It is not yet clear if Netflix will drop all episodes at once, or if it will be a week-by-week affair.

How many episodes are there of 'You' season 3?

Netflix confirmed there will be 10 episodes of 'You' season 3, which is the same as season one and two, both of which had 10 episodes each.

Is there a trailer of 'You' season 3?

Yes. Netflix has dropped a couple of official trailers for 'You' season 3. 

The first trailer announced the date of the season three and it was released at the end of August 2021.

The second official trailer was released mid-September 2021 and it gives a little bit more away about what we can expect. You can watch it below.

What is expected to happen in 'You' season 3?

'You' season 3 will feature Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgely) navigating fatherhood, alongside Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti). 

We know from the end of season two that the dangerous two move to the suburbs with Love pregnant and Joe taking an interest in the nextdoor neighbour, showing that while he is in the suburbs and out of his comfort zone, he has not changed.

The first trailer focused on the upcoming baby, with Joe narrating and discussing what to call him. With the end of season two showing Love is just as dangerous and obsessive as Joe, if not more so, we're sure season three will definitely not be without its dark twists and turns, which the second trailer revealed. It was always a dark show, but season three seems extra dark.

A list of some cast members have been confirmed for the new season including Scott Speedman as Matthew, who is described as "a successful CEO, husband, and uncommunicative father. He's reserved, mysterious, and has a tendency to be withdrawn ... all of which masks a deep well of emotion underneath." 

Travis Van Winkle will play a character called Cary, who is said to invite Joe into his inner circle, while Shalita Grant will play a "mom-fluencer" called Sherry who is actually a mean girl that only pretends to welcome Love into her social circle.

How to catch up on previous seasons of 'You'

If you want to catch up on seasons one and two of 'You' then you can find all 20 episodes on Netflix. 

Each episode is around 45-minutes long.

Will there be a season 4 of 'You'?

Netflix hasn't confirmed a season four of 'You' yet, but it hasn't been ruled out either.

Executive produced Sera Gamble previously told The Hollywood Reporter: "I am not scared at all of saying that we definitely could follow Joe for several more seasons."
