If you, like us, devoured the last two seasons of You and are hungry for more, then we have good news.
We revealed way back in January that the truly twisted series had been greenlit for a 10-episode third season but since then details have been thin on the ground. Other than the fact that co-creators Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti were returning as executive producers and of course, Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti would reprise their roles, Netflix has kept quiet… until now.
But before we spill the tea, here’s a quick recap on where we left our favourite psycho in season two. Warning: spoilers ahead (although, seriously if you haven’t watched it yet, shame on you).
After a rollercoaster of a season in which Joe (Badgley) hightailed it to LA in search of a fresh start, it looked like he had finally met his psychotic match in girlfriend/now baby mama, Love (Pedretti). He had murdered less (good for him) and moved to the suburbs where he seemed to be on the right path… that is until the final moments where he spotted his newest prey, the sexy neighbour.
We can now reveal two brand new characters joining the show. Say hello to fresh meat number one, Shalita Grant who you might recognise from Search Party and Santa Clarita Diet.
According to Netflix Grant will play Sherry, “a mum-fluencer who appears down to earth, but is actually a mean girl who only pretends to welcome Love into her social circle.” It sounds so juicy we could actually cry.
Grant recently tweeted that she was “over the moon” about joining the cast, and punctuated it with a series of knife emojis. It looks like she’s going to fit right in.
Also joining the ranks is Travis Van Winkle (Hart Of Dixie, 90210) who will play Cary. All we know about this handsome devil is that he’s a wealthy dude who invites Joe into his inner circle. We’re assuming he has no idea Joe’s a serial killer, unless said inner circle is a murderous cult. We can’t wait to find out.
While seasons one and two were based on the books You and Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes, there is no third book, so we can’t wait to see where this wild and frankly terrifying ride takes us next.
The exact release date is a loose one, it was pegged for late 2021, but sadly COVID could have thrown that date out the window. The second we know, you’ll know.
In the meantime, here are 14 of the best Netflix shows to binge.
