‘Felicity’ star Scott Speedman boards ‘You’ season 3
Felicity alum Scott Speedman is joining the cast of Netflix’s You season 3. The streamer has confirmed in a post on Twitter that Speedman will play Matthew, described as a reserved and mysterious character.
Speculations are that Matthew is the guy Joe (Penn Badgley) was staring at from across his house during the second season finale. Matthew might likely be the new neighbor’s husband.

Apart from Speedman, You season 3 will also introduce new characters, per CNN.
Two new cast members, Shalita Grant and Travis VanWinkle, will be joining season three of You, Netflix has announced.
Grant will play the character of Sherry, who according to the streaming service is a “mom-fluencer who appears down to earth but is actually a mean girl who only pretends to welcome Love into her social circle.” While VanWinkle will take on the role of Cary, who “invites Joe [Penn Badgley] into his inner circle.”
Grant is known for her role as Sonja Percy on “NCIS” and VanWinkle from the 2009 film “Friday the 13th.”
The show is based on a pair of books by Caroline Kepnes, and it follows Joe Goldberg, a man who in season 1 would do anything to win the heart of a woman he meets when she comes into the New York City bookstore where he works. In the second season, Joe has moved to Los Angeles, where he uses the name Will Bettelheim and falls for a new woman, Love Quinn.
Not much is known about the upcoming season but season 2 left off with Quinn becoming pregnant with Goldberg’s baby.
