It’s finally here, the return of the truly deranged couple Joe Goldberg and Love as Netflix drops the brand new trailer for You season three. With anticipation high, it looks as though the streaming platform will deliver with one of their most highly prized titles.
Created by Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble, and adapted from Caroline Kepnes’ novel, You is an unsettling and disturbing Netflix series that has won millions of hearts worldwide.
The series revolves around Joe Goldberg, a young and handsome bookstore clerk, who grows increasingly obsessed with Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail) and tries hard to woo her by manipulating the events around her, often resorting to gruesome homicides and inexplicable psychopathic behaviour.
Joe escapes to Los Angeles under the alias of Will Bettelheim for the second season and takes up a job in a grocery store where his encounter with Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), a widow, leaves him smitten as she is seemingly interested in him. Having learnt from his past mistakes, Joe (now Will), tries to engage in a ‘normal’ friendship with Love. However, the ghosts of his past come back from the dead (literally) and force him to resort to violent measures once again to prevent his past deeds from tainting his new image.
Penn Badgley, whom we remember as Dan Humphrey in the teen drama series Gossip Girl, is petrifying in his portrayal of Joe Goldberg. On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Badgley went on to explain how he came up with the expressionless yet frightening version of Goldberg. “I arrive on mark…I do nothing but look up. And the entire crew behind the camera goes ‘Oh! Whoa, man. That is phenomenal. That is so creepy.’ And I did nothing.”
After ending the second season of the series with a cliffhanger, the makers of You have been teasing fans with tidbits regarding the upcoming season of the show. Now, we have the first real taste of what season three will hold.
