Eagle-Eyed You Fans Spot Hidden Message In Character Names
The second season of Netflix's You has been out for more than a week and fans have already spotted a potential clue about what the third series may hold, based on character names from the latest series.
The fan theory has potentially unearthed a clue as to who the unlucky-in-love Joe Goldberg might have it in for in the third series - which hasn't yet been confirmed but is rumoured to be next year.
In the new series, Joe, posing as Will Bettelheim, falls in love with Love Quinn. Combined with the name of the show, the message behind the names reads 'Joe Will Love You' with fans now wondering who the mystery You character could be and whether the third series will reveal all.
Some fans have also questioned whether the sentence works the other way around, as in 'Will Joe Love You'.
And as fan theories go, it's not as crazy as you might think, with the official Twitter account for the show even sending fans into meltdown by responding to the character name idea with a Joe/Will gif.
Plus, this isn't the first time the show's creators have played with names to send a message. Main characters Love Quinn and twin brother Forty Quinn names are obviously tennis references, which is subtly hinted at in the series during a match between the two siblings.

Creators then echoed this with the teaser advertisements for the second season, which read 'Meet Your Match'. So the hidden messages in names theory might have some credibility here already...
Whilst Netflix and the show creators have yet to respond to calls for another series due to the season two cliffhanger, star Penn Badgley accidentally let slip in a recent interview that a third series could be in the pipeline.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight about Love Quinn's character arc in season two, he said: "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 same third season. Oh God!"
However, if the dates between season one and two are anything to go by, fans of the You series will be waiting until April 2021 to get their fix of the hapless and quite frankly, dangerous in love Joe Goldberg.
