Filming for the highly anticipated You season 3 has officially wrapped, and with the new series being described as "f***ing bonkers," it's safe to say fans are excited.
Here's everything we know so far about the upcoming series...
Calling all You fans:
At last, we have some good news...
Filming for season 3 has finally wrapped!
Now, the obsession started when Netflix's You hit our screens for the first time.
Perfect for those in the post-Christmas slump, the psychological thriller followed the ill-fated romantic pursuits of a terrifying sociopath, named Joe.
It was based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Caroline Kepnes.
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 it got worse...
By the end of series 1, 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.
Because you can't get away with this stuff forever, right?
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.
Because in spite of the fact Joe Goldberg was a stalker and murderer?

Anyway, the show was a major success globally...
via: IMDBMeaning 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.
via: IMDBJoe 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.
And with a new city, comes a new love interest.
But season 2 also saw some recurring characters.

Joe's mysterious ex, Candace, who we believed for all of season 1 to be dead, was back in season 2 to teach Joe a serious lesson.
One thing was for certain throughout the season, however...
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.
Season 2 was a thrilling one, to say the least."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.
But in similarity to the first season, it wasn't for the faint-hearted.
Of course, You season 2 was a huge success upon its release...
via: IMDBWhich left fans asking... will there be another season?!
Well, luckily for us obsessed fans...
Our wishes were granted.
Penn Badgley revealed the much-needed season 3 in 2019.
The star of the show accidentally revealed that season 3 is on the horizon... just days after the release of season 2!
And he also dropped some plot secrets.

Then he realized his mistake.
via: NetflixHe slapped his head and said, "I literally know nothing about the third season." Nice try, Penn. Nice try.
Since Badgley leaked the announcement news about the third series has been trickling in...
Including the long awaited question of who Joe's female neighbor is, as teased in the finale of season 2.
Well, 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 now, we have even more exciting news...
And it's safe to say fans are thrilled by it.

Because every single member of cast & crew worked very hard to take care of each other during a time that’s stressful, in a situation that’s tough to control.

Gamble also spoke about feeling "privileged to have gotten to witness everyone's creativity, resilience and kindness."
I feel privileged to have gotten to witness everyone’s creativity, resilience and kindness.
