On October 28, 2020, the Netflix Australia and New Zealand Twitter account confirmed BSC would return for season 2. The video announcement featured the show's original stars—Malia Baker (Mary Anne), Momona Tamada (Claudia), Xochitl Gomez (Dawn), Jessi (Anais Lee), Vivian Watson (Mallory), Shay Rudolph (Stacey), and Sophie Grace (Kristy) —lip-syncing to the theme song from the original HBO series, which aired in 1990.

Then, in August 2021, Netflix finally revealed first-look images and a release date: October 11. The sneak peek has us eagerly anticipating Claudia's return to the (middle school bedroom) runway.

5. You (Season 3, 2021) – Netflix

Deadline confirmed in April 2021 that following several COVID-19 related production delays, filming on You season 3 was completed and the show will premiere in Q4 of 2021. Showrunner Sera Gamble confirmed in February of 2020 that they'd started work on season three.

There's also an official Twitter account that provides updates about the writing room. Some of the best details to be revealed? That the eighth episode of the season is "batshit"...and that anal beads may or may not be involved in the season.

The new teaser welcomes Joe and Love's bundle of joy. It shows a pair of hands, presumably those of Love, making a cake for their newborn. While the hands crush eggshells and wipe drops of blood-red icing off a knife, Joe opines about having a son, at one point saying that the idea of raising a boy like him was "not without his challenges."

The trailer ends with two reveals: that the new season will premiere this October, and that Joe and Love's son will have the literary name Henry. A gender reveal has never been quite so sinister.
