You Season 3: New Faces Join Cast Regulars For The Upcoming Season

You - New Cast Members

The Netflix series You has seen both its first and second seasons turn into massive hits after their previous releases. The show’s wicked plot coupled with bizarre twists and turns got fans hooked and curious about what’s gonna happen next. Like, who might be the new players for its upcoming season? How will they be involved with our central leads? Here’s what we know so far. 

You season 3 casting announcements revealed Shalita Grant (NCIS: New Orleans) as Love’s (Victoria Pedretti) newest frenemy Sherry, the “Mom-fluencer.” On the other hand, Travis Van Winkle (The Last Ship) will be Joe’s (Penn Badgley) new wealthy budd, Cary. 

Grant will portray the locally famous “Momfluencer” Sherry, who appears to be warm and down to earth. However, that is all just an act for her social media followers. She is really mean and threatened by Love, and pretends that she’s welcome into her wealthy and elitist social circle. Although beneath her insecurity, a pragmatic loyal person also underlies who could turn out to be a true friend.

Van Winkle will play Cary, a wealthy and charismatic CEO who runs his own supplement company. He invites Joe into his inner circle.

Lastly, actor Scott Speedman is the latest cast addition to You for next season. He will play Matthew, a successful CEO, husband, and uncommunicative father. He is reserved, at times mysterious, and has a tendency to be withdrawn. All of these qualities seem to mask a deep well of emotion underneath.

You season 3: What is its plot and when will it be released?

Season 2 found Penn Badgley’s Joe restarting his life as Will Bettelheim in Los Angeles. Along with his new life came a new obsession in Victoria Pedretti’s Love Quinn. Unlike season 1 romance, Love who is initially deemed as Joe’s victim turns out to be his exact replica. She has also left her own trail of bodies in pursuit of love. The second season ends with the two moving in together, after a pregnant Love revelation.

However, such things seem transitory as the final scene of season 2 shows Joe already eyeing his next victim. Whether this new character will be set up to become a victim in the upcoming season is still unconfirmed. We can also anticipate who among Joe and Love does the bulk of the killing for this latest season.

Last January 14, the show confirmed in its official Twitter account that it will return for a third season. At the time, the release date was projected sometime in 2021. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the production met delays that the timeline was pushed a little further back.

On November 2, Netflix announced that You Season 3 is officially back in production.

Whether the season will premiere on its initially projected 2021 date, or a little later remains to be seen. Meanwhile, seasons 1 and 2 of You are currently available for streaming on Netflix.
