This article contains spoilers for the previous seasons of You.
Last month, we received a teaser for season three of You, hinting at what Penn Badgley’s sociopathic stalker, Joe Goldberg, has been up to. Now, Netflix has shared the first full trailer, ahead of the series premiere on October 15.
In case you’re still catching up, the finale of season two saw Joe move to the suburbs with his equally murderous — and pregnant — girlfriend, Love Quinn (played by Victoria Pedretti).
In the August 31 teaser clip, the soon-to-be dad revealed the name of the baby, Henry, and things seemed pretty idyllic. “For you, I can change,” he told his unborn son. “I’ll be a man you look up to. A man you will be proud to call dad.”
The new trailer, however, dives into the inevitable darkness that follows the now-married couple around. Soundtracked by a creepy cover of Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time”, the couple are seen doting over their new child and setting up in the “soulless suburbs”, but also smacking someone over the head with a rolling pin and taping up a body wrapped in plastic.
Picking up from where the season two cliffhanger left off, Joe’s new obsession is also revealed for the first time. Named Natalie, the ill-fated neighbour is played by Michaela McManus, who joins the cast alongside the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Tati Gabrielle, as Marienne.
