You (Season Three)

Back for what looks like its most batshit season yet, the third instalment of You follows Joe (Penn Badgley) and Love (Victoria Pedretti) as they seek out a normal life as new parents in the suburbs. Of course, it’s short lived and things quickly spiral out of control.

It hits Netflix on Friday October 15.
