It sounds like the suburbs won’t be as boring as Joe and Love feared.
Netflix on Thursday announced that Shalita Grant (NCIS: New Orleans, Search Party) and Travis Van Winkle (The Last Ship) are joining the cast of the upcoming third season of YOU as a shady twosome that takes a curious liking to Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti’s characters.
Grant will play Sherry, “a ‘Mom-fluencer’ who appears down to earth, but is actually a mean girl who only pretends to welcome Love into her social circle.” Meanwhile, Van Winkle will play Cary, a wealthy guy who “invites Joe into his inner circle.”

Speaking with TVLine about the status of Joe and Love’s relationship, Badgley says, “They’re not soulmates. He’s afraid of her at the end [of Season 2]. Basically, it’s set up for Season 3 in a way where they would be each other’s arch nemesis.”
As for the other major Season 2 twist — that Love is pregnant with Joe’s baby! — Badgley isn’t confident in his character’s future as a quality father. “Does he have it in him, in that he’s a human being? Is it possible? Sure,” he tells TVLine. “And if there’s anything that can change a person, it’s parenthood. But I don’t know that Joe can or should change. I certainly don’t know if he will change.”
Season 3 of YOU is slated to premiere sometime in 2021. What are your hopes and predictions? Drop ’em all in a comment below.
