You's Penn Badgley has responded to that season two theory about Joe's mother

You's second season arrived on Netflix last month.

The highly-anticipated season two debuted on the streaming service on St. Stephen's Day - with more murder, mayhem and just all-around nail biting action than before.

And it wasn't long before dedicated fans made their way through the 10-episode second season - and were convinced they had figured out Joe's next target.

The final moments of the last episode see Joe, who has moved out of Los Angeles with Love, spying on his next victim.

As he peers through the fence in their garden, he says he'll be seeing his neighbour "soon" - as the camera focuses on a woman reading a book on a sun lounger.

However, eagle-eyed viewers are convinced that the new neighbour won't be Joe's next love interest - but rather, that she's his estranged mother.

Now, Penn Badgley - who plays Joe - has responded to the theory....and it looks like fans are going to have to head back to the drawing board.

"She's definitely not his mom," he told Bustle. "I can say that."

It comes after the actor basically confirmed that a third season of the Netflix thriller is on the way.

The actor, who plays the murderous, love sick, and entirely messed up Joe Goldberg, recently chatted to Entertainment Tonight all about the Netflix's show's latest season, its shock ending, and what's next for Joe and Love.

"She doesn’t appear to be the same kind of person," said Badgley while discussing Love's development over season two. "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 third season – oh, god!"

Third season, indeed.

Desperately trying to suggest that he doesn't know anything about a season three at all, Badgley go on: "Technically I can’t… I mean, like, unofficially?"
