The series finale teased a fresh start for Joe and Love’s love life, but ‘You’ Season 3 might tear their seemingly perfect beginning to shreds.
Joe Goldberg will be back for more murder, or rather, will witness murders being committed by his crazy wife Love in ‘You’ Season 3. Remember when Joe was the obvious villain of the show and we had a whole season to make peace with it? Well, Joe has tough competition now, thanks to his crazy new wife who is a lot scarier and stalker-ish than he is. The first two seasons of the show were unsettling because the viewer while watching the protagonist, realizes that he’s insane. His rage, tendencies to stalk women who don’t even know him, and the creation of facades to attract them are beyond messed up.

What’s even more eerie about the series are Joe Goldberg’s thoughts, which he rarely fails to share with the viewer.
His narration through the episodes unravels the deepest darkest thoughts lurking in his mind and it’s as if he’s talking to the viewers, and addressing them as he says, “You”.
The show had a popular cast including ‘Gossip Girl’ fame Penn Badgley (Joe), and ‘Hill House’ and ‘Bly Manor’ actress Victoria Pedretti (Love). Both Joe and Love are murderers and are as crazy about each other as their minds are, and they don’t flinch before their kills. With a third season on the way, we wonder where their story is headed now!
Revisiting the events of season 2
The show’s second season saw Joe Goldberg move to LA in the hopes of beginning a new life. He seems to have put his past behind him and runs away from his ex Candace who threatens to expose him. Joe had tried to kill Candace, but she miraculously survives and returns to make his life a living hell.
His every move is calculated and he fears that his ex will expose his murderous ways, but then he meets Love Quinn. He first sees her at a store he works at and then goes on a stalking spree. The pair eventually fall in love but little does Joe realise that Love might be a lot more dangerous than Candace.
The crazy pants finale saw a pregnant Love and a terrified Joe in what may appear as marital bliss, but isn’t. His dream girl becomes his worst nightmare after she confesses that she murdered his friend Delilah and ex Candace, and it wasn’t pretty. Joe realises that Love is a lot more dangerous than even he is, which is why he has no choice but to tread carefully. Their new dynamic is expected to be explored in ‘You’ Season 3 along with new characters finding their way into the couple’s life.
These new characters will join ‘You’ Season 3
Netflix’s Twitter account revealed the new characters that fans can expect to see in the third season! Shalita Grant joins the series as Sherry, a “mom-fluencer” who befriends Love. She comes across as a very down to earth lady, but is actually “a mean girl pretending to welcome Love into her social circle”. All we can hope is that Sherry watches out for Love’s tactics, which can push her in some serious troubles.
The other member joining the cast is Travis Van Winkle who will portray Cary, a wealthy man “who invites Joe into his inner circle”. Some friends would bode the couple well as long as their intentions are genuine because otherwise, a blood-bath awaits them.
There haven’t been any revelations about the plot of the show but we’re expecting to see Joe’s glass bookcase or rather cage, make a return. Maybe Love will have a new weapon at hand too? Only time will tell!
When will the new season release?
Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any updates about when the show will be available to stream on Netflix. The streaming giant revealed that ‘You’ was being renewed in January this year, which means there’s ample amount of production time left!
The show could have premiered sometime in 2021 but with the coronavirus imposed delays, there’s no telling when ‘You’ Season 3 will begin filming. We’re definitely waiting to see how these characters influence Joe and Love’s lives and will be looking forward to the new season!
