You: Season 3 - The third season of this hit psychological thriller series picks up with Joe (Penn Badgley) and Love (Victoria Pedretti) – now married and raising their baby – after they 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.
