Here, we’re going to talk about the suspenseful, mind-grabbing, and nerve-wracking thriller drama You and if we will be getting a Season 3. How far can you go for love? Well, this man could move any obstacle out of the way if it gets between him and his lady. The Netflix series You had many of us questioning where the line between loving care and obsession needs to be drawn. The first season which had ten episodes had the viewers hooked on to their seats, some for the thriller and some because of the sarcastic narration. The first season was so good that the viewers were desperate for a second season. It seems like two seasons were not enough for the viewers as You Season 3 is said to be in the making.
Reports are making the round that Season 3 of the Netflix series You has been canceled. If you are wondering what Joe Goldberg and his stalker/killer mind are up to and are waiting for Season 3 of You and are wondering when will season 3 be released, or is it canceled? Then keep reading.
Before we jump into the details of You Season 3, let us give you a quick recap of the previous seasons.
Season 1 recap
You Season 1
The main cast-
Penn Badgley as Joe Goldberg, a serial killer cum stalker, and a bookstore manager at Mooney’s, Elizabeth Lail as Guinevere Beck, an aspiring and intelligent writer, Luca Padovan as Paco, Joe’s younger brother, and Shay Mitchell as Peach Salinger, Beck’s wealthy and nosy best friend.
A man named Joe Goldberg gets attracted by an aspiring writer, Guinevere Beck, whom he starts stalking through social media and physically. Soon, when they find common ground between themselves as book lovers they start dating, during this season they broke up but promptly got together again. After Joe broke up with Karen, Karen went up to Beck and told her about how Joe’s ex Candace had simply disappeared after Joe and Candace broke up. Beck gets nervous and curious about what happened to Candace and confronts Joe about it; Joe somehow convinced Beck that Candace was doing well and that he and Candace just had a bad breakup.
The first season includes a couple of murders by our bookstore manager, Mr. Goldberg. Some people expected the ending of the first season to be what it was, while others thought he truly loved Beck and would hurt only people who were trying to get into their way, but remember friends’ old habits die hard, which was true in Joe’s case. The season ends with Joe maybe killing his beloved girlfriend, Guinevere Beck.
