Netflix’s You season 3 now filming! Speedman, Grant, Van Winkle join cast

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Filming has finally begun on the third season of Netflix's stalker series You, which the streaming service has confirmed by tweeting out a picture of the show's star Penn Badgley on set, wearing a You face mask. 

Badgley is reprising the role of sociopath lead character Joe Goldberg, with season 2 cast member Victoria Pedretti returning as the most recent object of Joe's affection, Love Quinn. Season 3 doesn't have an official synopsis at this time, but showrunner Sera Gamble has said that each season will show Joe dealing with 

a new love obsession and a new world. Season one is Beck in New York, and season two is Love in L.A., and so we are evoking where we would like to go (in season three), which is to a much more suburban, insular world where Joe would be a complete fish out of water."

In the days leading up to the start of production on season 3, the names of three new cast members have been announced. They are Scott Speedman (UNDERWORLD, THE STRANGERS), Shalita Grant (NCIS: New Orleans, Santa Clarita Diet), and Travis Van Winkle (FRIDAY THE 13TH 2009, The Last Ship).

Speedman will be playing the "major recurring role" of Matthew, "a successful CEO, husband, and uncommunicative father. He's reserved, at times mysterious, and has a tendency to be withdrawn, all of which masks a deep well of emotion underneath."

Grant and Van Winkle both have series regular status. Grant's character is Sherry, "a locally famous Momfluencer who is warm and down to earth, but that's just a put-upon act for her social media followers. The original mean girl, she's threatened by Love (Pedretti) and only pretends to welcome her into her wealthy and elitist social circle. But underneath her insecurity, there's a pragmatic, loyal person who could turn out to be a true friend." Van Winkle's is Cary, "a wealthy, charismatic, and self-proclaimed Master of Self-Optimization who runs his own supplement company and invites Joe (Badgley) into his inner circle".

You is executive produced by Warner Horizon Scripted TV, Alloy Entertainment, Berlanti Productions, and Gamble. The first season of the show was inspired by the Caroline Kepnes novel You, which you can buy a copy of HERE. Season 2 is based on Kepnes's novel Hidden Bodies, which you can buy HERE.

I was a fan of the first two seasons, so I am very much looking forward to season 3. It's expected to premiere sometime in 2021.
