'You' Season 3 Is Getting 2 New Characters & Here's What We Know About Them
It's been almost a year since You Season 2 dropped on Netflix, so it's been a while since fans have gotten new details about Joe Goldberg and his very dark world. Luckily, Netflix just announced some casting news for Season 3... and some plot details along with it. The You Season 3 cast now includes Shalita Grant and Travis Van Winkle, and it sounds like their characters are going to stir up a whole lot of drama.
Netflix announced via Twitter on Oct. 15 that "fresh blood" will be joining You for its third season. In the tweet, the streamer announced Grant will play Sherry, "a 'Mom-fluencer' who appears down to earth, but is actually a mean girl who only pretends to welcome Love [Victoria Pedretti] into her social circle." Van Winkle will play "the wealthy Cary, who invites Joe [Penn Badgley] into his inner circle." Two-faced characters are nothing new to the world of You, so it sounds like these two will fit in with Joe and Love just perfectly.
Grant might be familiar to audiences from her roles in dark comedies like Search Party and Santa Clarita Diet. Van Winkle has also appeared in several TV shows, including Hart of Dixie and the 90210 reboot.
When audiences last saw Joe and Love, they'd moved to the suburbs to start their new family, even after Love revealed that she's just as dark as Joe. Between the two of them in Season 2, they murdered Love's brother Forty (James Scully), Joe's ex-girlfriend Candace (Ambyr Childers), Joe's neighbor Delilah (Carmela Zumbado) and the comedian Henderson (Chris D'Elia). The odds aren't great that new characters Sherry and Cary will make it out of Season 3 alive, but then again, Joe did seem determined to turn over a new leaf at the end of Season 2.
There's no release date yet for Season 3 of You, but it will likely come out at some point in 2021. Creator Sera Gamble promised its story is worth waiting for. "I will say that we have an idea for Season 3 that is SO exciting that people talk about it in the [writer's] room every day," she told Cosmopolitan UK.
In the meantime, Seasons 1 and 2 of You are streaming on Netflix now.
