For those familiar with the twisted and confronting narrative of You, you'll be glad to hear the show is set to return for season 3, this time with some new cast members in the mix.
The psychological thriller come-rom-com housed on Netflix was confirmed earlier this year to produce a third season. Now revealing that 12 new cast members will join Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti on set.
It's reported that Shalita Grant of NCIS and Search Party will take on the role of a ‘Mom-fluencer’ named Sherry who seems kind and genuine but turns out to be nasty and only pretends to welcome Love into her social circle. Travis Van Winkle of Friday the 13th will also join the You cast. Van Winkle will play a wealthy man named Cary, who according to a Netflix tweet, “invites Joe into his inner circle.”
In addition, Tati Gabrielle (The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch), Saffron Burrows and Dylan Arnold will star as regular roles, while Michaela McManus, Shannon Chan-Kent, Ben Mehl, Christopher O’Shea, Christopher Sean, Bryan Safi, Mackenzie Astin, Ayelet Zurer and Jack Fisher will feature as guest stars.
While the second season ended as a complete mess (that we loved every second of), we're excited to see what will take place for Joe in the third season. Will he have changed his ways like he always promises?
Apparently You author Caroline Kepnes is currently working on a third and fourth book of the series, which was initially a novel. The next edition will be titled You Love Me and is said to be released in April 2021.
Kepnes told Entertainment Weekly “Joe is really proud of himself because a lot of people in his position descend into darkness after having been through what he’s gone through in book two and then in the beginning of book three,” she said.
“And he decides that he’s going to be a better person and he’s very proud of himself for that. Having dealt with Love’s family and dating someone with this close relationship with their twin brother, he’s very focused on the idea that he should be the one with the family. But yeah, the main thrust of it is that he’s very proud of his strength."
Oh, how low the bar is for psychopaths.
While there is no trailer or specific release date set for season three's air date thus far, we'll be keeping an eye on any developments. It is, after all one of the only pieces of television in the category of 'psychological thriller' that I can bear to watch. I just think of Lonely boy and the Humphrey family waffles.
