“You,” based on Caroline Kepnes’ bestselling novel of the same name, made its Lifetime debut with little fanfare in 2018. In what is now considered a harbinger of the current ubiquity of streaming services , the series gained popularity when Netflix picked it up just three months after its premiere.
Although the first season of “You” was set in New York City, Season 2 moved the action to Los Angeles. The teaser doesn’t specify where season 3 is set, but the final episode of the second season showed Joe and Love moving to a somewhat staid suburb.
In a new interview with New York Magazine’s blog Vulture, Badgley admitted he hates Joe Goldberg, who is able to get away with literal murder because of his seemingly effortless beauty and charm. The actor then made some suggestions on how he would like to see the character pay the price for his grisly crimes before the series ends, though he’s not sure what the ideal revenge would look like.
“Punishment is important, but what form of punishment is really effective? With Joe, the irony is that death is almost too easy for him, ”he explained.
