Joe is back.
As the third season of You begins production Netflix has released the first set photo to promote the show’s return but also some curious tidbits.
The season will be filming from November 2020 to April 2021. It will have 10 episodes. Caroline Kepnes new book in the series You Love Me is set to hit stories in April 2021.
Penguin Random House details the new plot as:
“Joe is done with the cities. He’s done with the muck and the posers, done with Love. Now, he’s saying hello to nature, to simple pleasures on a cozy island in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time in a long time, he can just breathe.
He gets a job at the local library—he does know a thing or two about books—and that’s where he meets her: Mary Kay DiMarco. Librarian. Joe won’t meddle, he will not obsess. He’ll win her the old-fashioned way . . . by providing a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. Over time, they’ll both heal their wounds and begin their happily ever after in this sleepy town.
The trouble is . . . Mary Kay already has a life. She’s a mother. She’s a friend. She’s . . . busy. True love can only triumph if both people are willing to make room for the real thing. Joe cleared his decks. He’s ready. And hopefully, with his encouragement and undying support, Mary Kay will do the right thing and make room for him.”
As far as casting for season three goes, Scott Speedman, who is known for playing Ben Covington on Felicity, Barry “Baz” Blackwell on Animal Kingdom and Michael Corvin in the Underworld series of movies, is joining the series as a mysterious CEO who is making secrets from the past.
Victoria Pedretti will also be returning as Joe’s new partner-in-crime Love Quinn and with a baby on the way, they just might be a very interesting family indeed.
Shalita Grant (NCIS Special Agent Sonja Percy on NCIS: New Orleans) is another fresh face. She will play a mom and influencer who has it out for Love.
Instinct’s Travis Van Winkle has been cast as Cary, a filthy rich dude who befriends Joe for ulterior motives.
If season three follows the schedule of the other seasons, it will probably air during the fall of 2021.
