Fans only have a couple of hours to wait before You season 3 drops on Netflix, where the identity of Joe Goldberg’s new neighbour will be revealed.

Season two of the hit psychological thriller left fans scratching their heads and looking in between the lines in trying to guess the identity of Joe’s new neighbour, and certain eagle-eyed viewers have shared their suspicions online over who it could be.

Joe (Penn Badgley) has finally met his match in Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti) as it turns out she is just as much as a psycho as he is – and she even went to extreme lengths to keep him around, even killing Candace (Ambyr Chambers), Joe’s persevering ex-girlfriend hell-bent on revenge.

‘This is just the beginning. Because this is where I had to be exactly where I had to be to meet You,’ he said n a voiceover while trying to look through a hole in his neighbour’s fence during the season two finale.

‘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.’

Many fans were under the impression that the woman behind the fence was Joe’s estranged mother.

I hope the neighbour next door is Joes mum… hurry up season 3 #YOU

However, Penn put all those rumours to bed in an interview with Bustle when he said: ‘She’s definitely not his mom, I can say that.’

So who else could it be?

Many fans believe the ghost of Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail),a character who was introduced as Joe’s primary love interest in season one, could be in full effect.

Previous episodes show Joe experiencing hallucinations on a daily basis, so it wouldn’t be a total surprise if his neighbour is just another figment of his warped imagination.

Many fans also believe that the mysterious neighbour could be Delilah and Ellie’s mother (Picture:Netflix)

However, one Reddit user suggested an even bigger clue that hints the neighbour could be the mother of Delilah and Ellie Alves.

Delilah’s mother would have every right to seek revenge on the disturbed duo, as Delilah was brutally murdered by Love in an act of jealous rage, which resulted in 15-year-old Ellie leaving the city to start a new life.

In response to an Express article about the woman who played the next-door neighbour, a Reddit user said the actress shares a resemblance with Delilah and Ellie.

Replying to a screenshot of the story, the Reddit user said: ‘Could it be Ellie and Delilah’s mom?’ And the idea soon received a lot of upvotes and comments in agreement.
