You season 3 plotline: What to expect
In the previous season of the psychological thriller, it amped up the drama and not following from the book and later introducing us with a surprising character reveal.
Nonetheless, there’s not much information on the upcoming season story yet although Caroline Kepes, the author behind the book from which the Netflix show is based on has completed the third novel of the series.
In season 3, we’re expecting to see not just love but more things to unveil which we are totally excited about. Show maker Sera Gamble is aiming for Joe to have an even darker future. Poor Joe! In a chat with The Hollywood Reporter, Gamble spoke on the finale of season 2 and how good things don’t happen for the main character.
Gamble said, “I think to me, the most important thing about that last scene is just confirmation that Joe is still Joe.” She resumed, “In a way that’s not going to be great for Joe.”
Star Penn Badgley (via TVLine) gave us a big hint that Joe and Love are “not soulmates. He’s afraid of her at the end. Basically, it’s set up for season 3 in a way where they would be each other’s arch-nemesis.” The hint that he gave us will probably have quite an impact to further the storyline of You season 3.
