Is Scott Speedman going to be playing Joe Goldberg's newest obsession — or the bane of his existence?

The Felicity alum is set to join season 3 of Netflix's hit psychological thriller, You, the streaming giant announced on Twitter Wednesday.

Netflix went on to reveal that Speedman, 45, would join the Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti led cast as "Matthew, a successful CEO, husband, and uncommunicative father."

"He's reserved, mysterious, and has a tendency to be withdrawn ... all of which masks a deep well of emotion underneath," the tweet teases.

Netflix announced in January that the series, which follows bookstore-manager-turned-serial-killer Joe (Badgley, 33) as he pursues different love interests, would be back for a third season.

In season 2, Joe moves from New York City to Los Angeles, where he meets a new subject of desire, Love Quinn (Pedretti, 25). The two quickly bond over the fact that they're both grieving a recent loss, although of course, Love doesn't know the whole story.

Though the two characters are very much together at the end of the season, Joe appears to set his eyes on his latest obsession: the couple's new neighbor.

"I don't think she'd take too kindly to it," Pedretti told PEOPLE in December of how Love would handle the situation. "I mean, I think that she would know. As any of us would if we knew that the person we gave all our attention to, if their attention was suddenly drifting to someone else. But then, maybe she would handle it super well. She surprises me."

The first two seasons of the show are adapted from the first two novels in Caroline KepnesYou book series. The first, You, was released in 2014, and was followed two years later by her second novel, Hidden Bodies, in 2016.

More than a year after it was announced that the book series was getting a third and fourth novel, the cover for the next installment was revealed late last month.

In a tweet on Sept. 22, the New York Times bestselling author unveiled the colorful cover for You Love Me.

"YOU LOVE ME has a stunning glowing cover," she posted alongside a photo of the book's sleeve.

Kepnes also shared that You Love Me, from Penguin Random House Publishing Group, is scheduled for release on April 6, 2021.
