Season 2 of You might have ended with Joe Goldberg and Love Quinn seeking a fresh start, but trouble is almost definitely in store. The popular Netflix series just announced two brand-new characters for its forthcoming third season, and it seems as though Joe and Love’s picture-perfect life might not last for too long.
As E! News reports, You Season 3 will feature Shalita Grant as Sherry, a “mom-fluencer” who befriends Love (portrayed by Victoria Pedretti). But, as fans of the thriller know, people aren’t always what they seem. E! adds that Sherry is “actually a mean girl who only pretends to welcome Love into her social circle.”
Joining the cast as well is Travis Van Winkle as Cary, a wealthy man “who invites Joe [Penn Badgley] into his inner circle.” We’ll have to wait and see just how Cary and Sherry fit into the murderous plot, but it’s safe to say we have plenty of questions — like whether or not they’ll end up as victims in Joe’s glass cage, or if they’ll be the ones to finally take him down.
Season 2 of You made its Netflix debut in December 2019. (It loosely followed the plot of Caroline Kepnes’s Hidden Bodies, the sequel to her novel You, which inspired the entire series.) The second chapter ended with several big question marks — Would Joe ever be brought to justice for his multiple killings? Does Love have an ulterior motive we’ve yet to learn? — and shortly after its release, actor Penn Badgley revealed that the show would thankfully be returning for a third season.
Author Kepnes is also working on a third — and fourth! — book in her You series, with the next installment, titled You Love Me, slated for an April 2021 release date. “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,” Kepnes previously told Entertainment Weekly of her next novel. “And he decides that he’s going to be a better person and he’s very proud of himself for that.”
While there’s no release date yet attached to You Season 3, we’re definitely excited about these new characters — and how they’ll fit into Joe’s tangled web. In the mean time, you can stream seasons 1 and 2 of You on Netflix.
