Are you ready for “You” season 3? Even if you might not be, “You” is ready for you. Joining the cast for their new season are two new actors, Travis Van Winkle and Shalita Grant. After season 2 ended with Joe Goldberg, played by Penn Badgely and Love, played by Victoria Pedretti, moving to a Los Angeles suburb, the new season will pick it up from there. Introducing two new characters that Joe and Love will meet, Travis will play a wealthy, charismatic, and self-proclaimed “Master of Self-Optimization” called Cary. He is the owner of a supplement company and welcomes Joe into his inner circle.
Whereas, Shalita will be playing a mean girl “Momfluencer” who feels threatened by Love. Thus, she only pretends to welcome her into her wealthy circle. However, there is a warm and true friend hidden underneath all her insecurity.
Travis Van Winkle is mostly known for his role in five seasons of TNT’s “The Last Ship.” He also starred against Alan Cumming in the CBS drama “Instinct.” Travis has also featured in films including “Friday the 13th,” “Transformers,” and more.
Whereas, Shalita is popular for her role as Sonja Percy on “NCIS: New Orleans.” She was also nominated for a Tony Award for portraying Cassandra in “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.” Shalita was also on Netflix’s “Santa Clarita Diet” with a large recurring arc.

What is “You?”
“You” became popular when the first season was released and showed Joe falling in love with a woman named Guinevere Beck, played by Elizabeth Lail. However, their romance, thanks to the twisted and stalker-ish mind of You’s main lead, Joe, ends up in murder.
In search of a fresh start and to escape his past, Joe decides to move to Los Angeles from New York. All he wanted was a clean slate to live his life again. However, he meets the charming Love Quinn and cannot help but fall in love.
Of course, like all things involving Joe, this romance takes a few twists and turns. And without revealing too many spoilers for those who have not watched the two seasons yet (I mean, what are you even doing with your life?), maybe Joe has found a match for himself.
But the last season ended with him eyeing another woman. While a pregnant Love kept an eye on him. So who knows where the new season will take our two twisted lovers? All we can do is wait for “You” season 3 to drop.
