Streaming on Netflix now, YOU Season three further explores how Joe Goldberg’s childhood trauma has shaped him into the man he is today. But there is one more important piece of his story that never made it to the screen.
Actor Mark Blum, who returned in the show’s first season as bookstore owner Mr. Mooney, was set to reprise his role in a series of flashbacks in Season 3. But that changed when the actor died of complications from the coronavirus in March 2020.
“Considering how old Young Joe is in this… [Season 3] flashbacks, we imagined a story that guided us when he saw Mr. Mooney first,” showrunner Sera Gamble told TVLine. “We were really excited to explore what that relationship was like in the beginning. You see a little bit of the middle and the end of it in season 1, so we wanted to tell a story that took him out of that [group homes] that he was in and out of the bookstore. I was really excited about it.”
On a personal note, Gamble adds: “Mark Blum was an extremely talented actor and such a pleasure to work with. We were just devastated. This is the first time I’ve ever had to rewrite a storyline because something so happened tragically.”
