Earlier this year, Kepnes gave Roling Stone a hint about what Joe could be up to in the third novel—and it includes music. “Joe meets a former grunge rocker,” she told the outlet. “I wrote some lyrics for the imaginary band. Gulp.”
The author also gave a couple more hints about the story, saying “yes, the new book has a body count." Honestly, what else could we expect from Joe?
As for the third season, considering season two diverged quite heavily from the original storyline it's safe to assume the upcoming production will do the same, although the author has revealed the creative team have read the novel.
Its title characters Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti will reprise their now-famous roles as Joe and Love, while co-creators era Sara Gamble and Greg Berlanti, will also take a seat behind the cameras once more as executive producers.
Kepnes has also been writing a fourth novel—which means a fourth season is definitely a possibility.
Looks like we're not done with Joe yet!
