People are calling season three of YOU ‘darkly fun’, ‘so messed-up’ and ‘the best yet’

‘This show gets better every season’

658 days. 94 weeks. That’s how long we have waited to have Joe Goldberg and Love Quinn back in our lives. But today, Netflix released season three of YOU and the reviews of the new episodes sure as hell confirm it was well worth the wait.

The new season is ten episodes, set in a new area, and Netflix has described it as “very murdery”. So, despite the new location, Joe and Love are definitely back at their old tricks again. As you get stuck into the new episodes, here’s exactly what people have been saying in reviews of YOU season three so far.

Season three of YOU sees Joe and Love move to Madre Linda for a fresh start as a family

In season three, Joe and Love are now married and raising their baby, Henry. They have moved to the wealthy and fancy Northern California suburb of Madre Linda, where they’re surrounded by privileged tech entrepreneurs, judgmental mommy bloggers, and Insta-famous biohackers. The area is cosy, wholesome and very, very rich. But, there’s a distinct lack of privacy there, everyone knows everyone’s business, which could be a sticking point for the Goldberg-Quinns.

Joe is committed to his new role as a husband and dad but fears Love’s lethal impulsiveness. And then there’s his obsessive ways too –  could the woman he’s been searching for all this time live right next door? Plus, Netflix has promised a lot of bloodshed in this season and the trailer showed little baby Henry being cast aside as mother and father, Love and Joe, dig what looks to be a grave. Wonderful parenting.
