Scott Speedman Joins Netflix’s You Season 3 in Major Recurring Role
Deadline brings word that Scott Speedman (Animal Kingdom, Underworld franchise) has joined Netflix’s crime drama series You for Season 3, joining the recently announced new series regulars Travis Van Winkle (Friday the 13th) and Shalita Grant (Santa Clarita Diet).
Speedman will star in a major recurring role as Matthew, a successful CEO, husband, and uncommunicative father. He’s reserved, at times mysterious, and has a tendency to be withdrawn, all of which masks a deep well of emotion underneath.
Starring Penn Badgley (Margin Call, Gossip Girl) and Victoria Pedretti (The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor), Season 2 of the series was loosely based on the second novel of Caroline Kepnes’ series, Hidden Bodies, following Joe Goldberg (Badgley) as he travels to Los Angeles and meets aspiring chef Love Quinn (Pedretti), who is uninterested in social media the way his previous love interest was.
You Season 2 also starred Ambyr Childers (The Master), Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham), Adwin Brown (Heathers), Chris D’Elia (Workaholics), James Scully (Heathers), Jenna Ortega (Jane the Virgin) and Charlie Barnett (Russian Doll).
In Season 1 of You, a brilliant male bookstore manager (Penn Badgley) who crosses paths with an aspiring female writer (Elizabeth Lail), pushes the limits of “love” to the test. A charming yet awkward crush becomes something even more sinister when the writer becomes the manager’s obsession. Using social media and the internet, he uses every tool at his disposal to become close to her, even going so far as to remove any obstacle — including people — that stands in his way of getting to her
Developed by Sera Gamble & Greg Berlanti based on the book by Caroline Kepnes, You launched as a Lifetime series with Netflix as SVOD/international partner. Starting with Season 2, You will be a Netflix original. The series is produced by Berlanti Productions, Man Sewing Dinosaur, and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television. Berlanti, Gamble, Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein, Gina Girolamo, and Marcos Siega are executive producers.
Seasons 1 and 2 are already available for streaming on Netflix. Season 3 will debut in 2021.
