The hotly anticipated season 3 of Netflix blockbuster YOU is officially coming back to your screen on October 15, 2021. With season 2 having a dramatic ending and leaving fans in anticipation craving more, here is all you need to know about the upcoming season of YOU.
Two Trailers! What The Hype
Netflix released two trailers for YOU season 3. The first trailer was released on August 30, 2021, in which Joe is seen baking a beautiful cake for their new son. Joe reveals their son’s name, Henry. He also admits that he and Love regret birthing a son instead of a daughter.
Netflix released the second trailer on September 17, 2021. Joe reveals that he is more scared when Henry cries. In the full-length trailer, Joe and Love engage in a killing activity where Love is seen hitting a person with a rolling pin and strikes another one with an ax. Joe is seen lifting a bow and arrow, and the couple buries a body while Henry giggles in a scooter.
In addition to the two trailers, Netflix uploaded photos to give fans a telltale of Joe and Love’s new life in Madre Linda. Love works at a bakery, while Joe is a stay-at-home dad. One of the images shows Joe on a staking errand while carrying Henry in a baby career.
What Does S3 Have In The Bag?
YOU season 3 is based on ‘You Love Me,’ written by Caroline Kepnes. It is the third book in the YOU novel series. According to the book’s synopsis: “Joe Goldberg is done with the cities. He’s done with the muck and the posers, done with Love. Now he’s saying hello to nature, to simple pleasures on a cozy island in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time in a long time, he can just breathe. He gets a job at the local library—he does know a thing or two about books—and that’s where he meets her: Mary Kay DiMarco. Librarian.”
“Joe won’t meddle, he will not obsess. He’ll win her the old-fashioned way…by providing a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. Over time, they’ll both heal their wounds and begin their happily ever after in this sleepy town.”
If the synopsis is anything to go by, YOU season 3 is expected to be thrilling like the first two seasons. Kepnes also hinted that she is working on a fourth book, implying that season 3 won’t be the last series.
New People Joining In?
Apart from the main characters Joe and Love, YOU season 3 will have a few new entries. According to Netflix, Shalita Grant will join the cast as Sherry, a mom-fluencer who invites Love to her inner circle. Travis Vaninkle will join the cast as Cary, a wealthy person who becomes Joe’s friend.
Scott Speedman will also join the cast as Matthew, a successful manager, husband, and reserved father. Netflix also announced that Scott Michael Foster would be joining the cast. The 36-year-old actor will play Ryan, a single dad and a reporter for a local company.
With a whole new cast full of talented acting elements, action and drama are expected to escalate quite quickly.
