Penn Badgley Debunks You Fan Theory About His Mum
Heads up - there's some You season two spoilers in this article, so if you've not caught up and don't want to know how the season ends click away now.
You's Penn Badgley has debunked one of the biggest fan theories regarding the identity of his new neighbour; revealing that it's not his mum underneath the hat.
The second season of Netflix's You left us on a bit of a cliffhanger as it appeared as though Joe had set his sights on a new love interest/potential victim despite him moving into a nice house with his pregnant girlfriend Love Quinn (played by Victoria Pedretti).
In the closing scenes, we saw Joe walk out into his new backyard and stroll down to the bottom of the garden where he looked over the fence and spotted his new neighbour sat near a pool reading - with a large hat obscuring her face.
Meanwhile, Joe narrates: "This is just the beginning, because this is where I had to be. Exactly where I had to be to meet you. There you were with your books and your sunshine. So close, but worlds away. I will figure out a way: a way to get to you. See you soon, neighbour."
Throughout the second season, viewers were drip fed bits and pieces about Joe's traumatic upbringing and we got to see his mum.
This lead to many people speculating that the woman with the hat and the books was none other than Joe's mum.
However, in a recent interview with Bustle, Badgely said: "She's definitely not his mom. I can say that." So, there goes that theory.
Badgely didn't give any further clues on who it could be - and fan theories have gone into overdrive with people suggesting the show might bring back Beck (Elizabeth Lail) in a similar way to how it brought back Candace (Ambyr Childers).
But before we all get ahead ourselves, Netflix is yet to even confirm a third season is happening, although Badgley did 'unofficially' break the news last week.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight the 33-year-old slipped up mentioning a potential third season before back tracking by saying: "I literally know nothing about the third season."
The reporter then asks: "Are we going to get a third season?"
Promptly Badgely to nod and admit: "Technically I can't... I mean, like, unofficially?"
Watch this space then, eh?
Seasons one and two of You are streaming on Netflix now.
