'You' creator reveals that 'things won't go well' for Joe in season three
This article contains spoilers on the second season of You.
The creator of You has revealed that "things won't go well" for Joe in season three.
Now, if you haven't had a chance to binge-watch season two yet, it's probably a good idea to stop reading this article. But just so we are all on the same page, it was a ride and then some. After proving himself to be a grade-A crazy person, Joe somehow managed to win over the object of his affection, Love, at the end of the season.
However, there was just one teeny, tiny problem - she is just as crazy as him, and he wasn't too pleased when he finally met his match.
If you haven't seen it yet, this is the trailer for season two:
Now, while a third season hasn't been officially confirmed, the star of the show, Penn Badgley, who plays Joe Goldberg, seemingly confirmed its existence in an interview last week.
And in another interview with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner and co-creator Sera Gamble said its creators have "a lot of stories still to tell."
Reflecting on what the ending of season two might mean for the character, Gamble said:
"I think to me, the most important thing about that last scene is just it is confirmation that Joe is still Joe in a way that's not going to be great for Joe.
"That he has not learned that he cannot just keep looking for the next person to attach his hopes and dreams to that way. It seems clear that he’s falling into some version of that same pattern.
"I can't say that we know exactly what a season three would be, but I can say things won't go well for Joe."
While a third season is likely because of the success of the first two, Gamble said the creators currently "don't have any kind of official pickup."
She explained: "I never like to jinx things by being too specific one way or the other… I am not scared at all of saying that we definitely could follow Joe for several more seasons.
"That being said, it's a tough TV landscape right now. There's about 10 billion TV shows and orders are shorter and there's more competition, so we never really save anything for later seasons.
"Our rule of thumb is always just if we have a great idea we're going to give it to you right now."
In a world where Joe has, on the outside, gotten everything he ever wanted in life and Love, it will be interesting to see how his character could be developed in a third season, especially with the addition of fatherhood.
