As Netflix’sYou prepares for its third season, fans are excited to see what will happen to psycho killer Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) after the explosive season two finale that saw Joe move to the suburbs with the equally murderous and pregnant Love (Victoria Pedretti).
In the final moments of season two, it is implied that Joe is infatuated with his neighbour, who has not yet been revealed. There are many questions swirling around You season three’s plotlines, whether any new characters will be joining Joe and Love, and how their new domesticated family will affect their stalker-like and murderous tendencies.
Netflix has just released a new teaser trailer that has given fans some clues for what to expect, but there is sure to be a lot more in store that will shake us to our core.
You can watch the teaser below:
When will season three of You be released?
Following a somewhat creepy teaser trailer released by Netflix, we now know that You season three will drop on the streaming service on October 15.
Which cast members are returning to You for its third season?
Badgley and Pedretti are reprising their roles as Joe and Love in the new series as well as Saffron Burrows, who plays Love’s mother Dottie – introduced in season two episode five during a stressful wellness retreat where Love and Joe say “I wolf you” as a stand-in for saying ‘I love you’ which induced vomit in everyone.
Are there any new additions to the cast?
There are a number of newcomers that have already been announced, including Dylan Arnold (Halloween) Michaela McManus (One Tree Hill), Shalita Grant (NCIS) as Sherry, Travis Wan Winkle (Scorpion), and Tati Gabrielle (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina).
Perhaps the most important addition is McManus, who is believed to be playing Natalie, Joe’s next-door neighbour who has a few secrets of her own. While it has not been confirmed that Natalie is the neighbour we caught a glimpse of in season two, it is likely that she will be the source of Joe’s new infatuation.
What do we know of the plot so far?
In the teaser trailer, we see someone (presumably Joe) cleaning a knife in an allusion to his murderous tendencies before it is revealed that he is simply baking a cake. In the voiceover, Joe tells us that he and Love are having a baby boy and reveals that Dottie believes him to be Forty (Love’s brother) reincarnated.
Joe says: “I’m hoping you’ll do as I say, not as I do. For you, I can change. I’ll be a man you look up to, a man you will be proud to call dad.”
According to the synopsis, the couple will be “surrounded by privileged tech entrepreneurs, judgemental mommy bloggers, and Insta-famous biohackers” in their new home as they attempt to raise their child.
It continues: “Joe is committed to his new role as a husband and dad, but fears Love’s lethal impulsiveness. And then there’s his heart. Could the woman he’s been searching for all this time live right next door?
“Breaking out of a cage in a basement is one thing but the prison of a picture-perfect marriage to a woman who’s wise to your tricks? Well, that’ll prove a much more complicated escape.”
At the end of the trailer, Joe divulges his son’s name, Henry, and asks the pivotal question that all parents ask: “who are you going to be?”
Of course, we are hoping that Joe will be able to put his psychotic past aside to raise his son in a loving and morally right household, but judging by his previous attempts to “change”, it’s not looking good for any of them.
You will be released on Netflix on October 15.
