When a brilliant bookstore manager, Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), comes across an aspiring writer, he forms an unusual attraction towards her. It soon becomes an obsession. Using the Internet and social media, he quietly stalks and gathers intimate details about her to get close. He strategically plots and removes any obstacle or person on his way.
Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail), a literary graduate student and aspiring writer, was his objective in Season 1, while chef Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti) was his target in Season 2. Each season’s plot revolves around Joe’s relationship with his target and her different friends and acquaintances.

He is off-screen, but his hands are visible, slicing a cake with a large, intimidating knife dripping with vivid red icing.
What to expect from You Season 3
Per Netflix’s official synopsis for Season 3, Joe and Love, now married and raising their baby, have moved to the balmy Northern California enclave of Madre Linda, where they’re surrounded by privileged tech entrepreneurs, judgmental mommy bloggers, and Insta-famous biohackers. Joe is committed to his new role as a husband and dad but fears Love’s lethal impulsiveness. And then there’s his heart. Could the woman he’s been searching for all this time live right next door? Breaking out of a cage in a basement is one thing. But the prison of a picture-perfect marriage to a woman who’s wise to your tricks? Well, that’ll prove a much more complicated escape.”
