Penn Badgley’s Joe can’t quit his murderous ways in the You season three trailer


Penn Badgley’s murderous character Joe and his similarly homicidal wife Love have started a new life away from the big city in the new trailer for You season three.

In the video, which was released Friday, Joe has to confront his fears about raising a child while trying to reign in his deadly impulses.

‘In my history of scared, this is the most scared I’ve ever been,’ he thinks to himself just as his son Henry is born.

New life: Penn Badgley’s murderous character Joe and his similarly homicidal wife Love have started a new life away from the big city in the new trailer for You season three, released Friday

Rather than relief or love, his face only betrays pain and fear as he glimpses Love (Victoria Pedretti) cradling their newborn son, who’s still covered in blood from the birth.

Even as he’s seen settling into domestic life with his wife and child, Joe makes it clear in voiceover that he’s obsessive tendencies have only been lying dormant. 

‘I’ve always believed in the one,’ he says while readying Henry a bedtime story.

Although he at first seems to be addressing Love, it becomes clear he’s actually speaking to baby Henry.

‘For you, I’d move to some soulless suburb. For you, I’d marry the monster, your mother, Love. What could go wrong,’ he says darkly.

‘We are just the nice, normal neighbors next door,’ he says, giving Love a pep talk. ‘We are a team.’ 

As he settles in with the baby at home, Love is seen opening up a bakery in their small town. 

‘We both have done bad things,’ she tells her husband. ‘I wanted to move here so that we could start anew.’

But even as he tries to commit to his family, Joe’s eye has already strayed to his new neighbor Natalie (Michaela McManus).

He invites her over for a glass of win, but his excitement gets the better of him and he accidentally breaks her glass amid a toast, which leaves her with a serious cut.

‘Oh no, this is bad,’ he says of both the injury and his new obsession.

Love isn’t oblivious to what’s going on with Joe and Natalie.

‘Something’s going on. You’re always distracted,’ she says while gripped with suspicion.

‘I think we need to go to couple’s therapy,’ she tells Joe over the phone after her deadly deed.

But first, Joe has to clean up the body. He wraps it in black garbage bags and ties it tight with duct tape.

‘This came sooner than expected,’ he murmurs while shoving a woman’s bloodied hand into the bag.

The killing seems to strike a blow in Joe and Love’s already-shaky relationship.

‘Why don’t you love me anymore?’ she shouts amid a montage of Joe stalking someone.

Joe appears to feel as if she’s pushing him back toward his old ways.

‘You are not making me kill anyone!’ he furiously screams at her.

The trailer ends with a bleak but hilarious clip of their therapist falsely reassuring them.

‘Neither one of you is gonna kill your spouse. You’re many things, but you are not murderers,’ she says, misinterpreting their threats for hyperbole.

The third season of You premieres on Netflix on October 15.
