Penn Badgley appears to confirm Season 3 is happening.
In an enlightening interview with Entertainment Tonight, Badgley let it slide that Season 3 was pretty much a done deal.
When asked about the growth of Love’s character, Badgley said, “Dare I say, I think in the third season…” And as soon as he realized what he had said, Badgley withdrew his mind back, and tried to backtrack by saying, “I know nothing about the next season.”
When the interviewer pressed the Gossip Girl star on whether more You will be coming to Netflix, Badgley squirmed, “Technically I can’t… I mean, for example, unofficially.” It seems we’ve got a response!
Season 3 would shoot in California.
While Season 1 was all about New York, Season 2 saw Joe head to California, and it seems like he’s sticking around. According to Deadline, a potential third season of You has been awarded $7.213 million in the latest round of California tax credits recipients.
Even though this isn’t a definite renewal, it usually means that the location is being eyed by the production company, and obtaining finances in place. It’s looking quite promising right now.
The authors have a notion for Season 3.
Among You’s executive producers, Sera Gamble is hopeful that the series will be back. She told Cosmopolitan UK, “Absolutely it could return for Season 3…
First of all, it is up to the forces that be. We expect that a lot of people may watch the show and that it has to last.”
She continued, “I will say that we have an idea for season three that is SO exciting that folks discuss it at the [author’s ] room every day.
So my fingers are crossed… I will just say, I hope we get the chance to continue making the series.”
One writer is interested in exploring the story of the mom of Love.
You showrunner Sera Gamble talked to Entertainment Weekly about the ending of Season 2, and she did not confirm if Season 3 is in the works, she did drop hints of what she’d want to explore if the show persists.
“The stakes are fairly high. I have numerous questions about Love’s mother who is incredibly in the picture after the season, such as just how much she knows about her kids,” Gamble told EW.
“We wrote [the finale] trusting that we’ll find the opportunity to tell more stories because we are excited with the seeds planted at the end of season 2. ”
These seeds are, needless to say, (SPOILER ALERT!) The revelations that when they go in together, Joe begins to get, and that Love is a killer like Joe, that she is pregnant with his kid fixated about the neighbor.
Would Mrs. Quinn react if she knew the truth? She has a rocky relationship with Love, as we learn in Season 2; where could their narrative go?
