Described as a mix between The Breakfast Club and Pretty Little Liars, the nine-episode series tells the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention - and only four walk out alive.

After a long wait, Netflix's You is finally returning to our screens this month.

The third season of the psychological thriller series will follow the continuation of Joe Goldberg's (Penn Badgley) relationship with Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), who is pregnant with the couple's first child.

In the final scenes of the second season, Joe and Love were seen moving into a new home in the suburbs of Los Angeles.

While making the move, Joe also seemingly set his sights on a new target – his neighbour.

In the scene, the neighbour, who is wearing a diamond ring on her left hand, is seen reading through a stack of classic novels.

"This is just the beginning. Because this is where I had to be exactly, where I want to meet you," Joe said in the final scene.

"There you were with your books and your sunshine, so close but worlds away. I will figure out a way. A way to get to you. See you soon, neighbour."

We can't bloody wait.

Throughout the series, host Gwyneth Paltrow will also have open conversations with couples about their sex lives.

"Sex, Love and Goop explores what it means to be truly intimate in a relationship: to express your deepest fears and desires and to accept those of your partners," Paltrow said in a statement. 

"A continuation of goop’s mission to help our audience pursue the ineffable power of their own potential, the show is a toolkit for finding more pleasure and connection in our romantic lives. And it’s full of lessons I wish I’d learned years ago."
