It’s not You, it’s all about Joe
You is an American psychological thriller produced by Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble. It follows Joe Goldberg, manager of a New York bookstore, who falls in love with a customer named Guinevere Beck and quickly develops an extremely toxic obsession. This delusion turns into a dangerous trait when Joe ends up killing her in his throes of anger. He commits crimes with his twisted excuse that all he is doing is for Guinevere’s love, and to keep her safe.
However, in the season 2, Goldberg moves to Los Angeles to escape his past, and start over with a new identity. He eventually meets another girl, Love Quinn, and attempts to avoid his old patterns of obsession and violence. The second season ended with Joe almost killing Love but upon finding out that she was pregnant, he decides not to. Meanwhile, Forty is convinced that Joe is Beck’s real murderer and he tries to save Love from Joe but fails to do so.
The show ended with a cliffhanger that has now made fans wonder who the new neighbor is, and if Joe will go back to this old ways after all.
Fan theories on the next neighbor
Ever since the end of the second season, fans have been storming the internet, suggesting who the new neighbor could be. We are convinced that Love and Joe are made for each other and as @cyclingguy536 on Reddit suggests, “Joe and Love are going to do a team kill thing and get into groove as a team.”
Some fans believe that the new neighbor could be Joe’s mother. One theory reads, “I do believe that the neighbor is his mother. Or at least I hope it’s her. I feel like it would be a great 3rd season if we could see him with his mother, as it seems like he’s been chasing her this whole time.”
However, in an interview with Bustle, lead star Penn Badgley (who plays Joe) confirmed that the new neighbor is not the mum. “She’s definitely not his mum,I can say that” he added.
In support to Badgley’s statement, a fan comments, “I don’t think the neighbor is Joe’s mother, but Joe will start getting obsessed about her and Love will see her as a threat and as a result, he will kill her. Joe, after the birth of his daughter, will try to get rid of Love and her family. Maybe we will see Ellie as well and she will try to prove that Joe and Love are 2 psychopaths after doing some investigation about Joe’s past in New York.”
When do we get season 3?
Even though another season was announced back in 2019, there is no confirmation on the release date.
Considering all productions have been stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the chances of season 3 releasing in 2020 is mostly likely to be ruled out. Meanwhile there is speculation that a third season will be released in 2021, which isn’t too long a wait.
