Does Theo die in You season 3?

Throughout the series, Theo made his crush on Love very clear - and the pair end up having an affair.

Due to Love's history, many viewers had feared Love would end up murdering Theo, and it all came to a head when he found Sherry (Shalita Grant) and Cary (Travis Van Winkle) in the cage in the bakery.

After discovering Theo in the bakery, Love attempted to kill him - but he was later saved by Joe.

While Joe at first thought he was dead, he decided to take him to hospital after hearing him stir, and the end of the series saw Theo recovering from his injuries.

Dylan Arnold, who plays Theo, previously revealed that he auditioned for You twice before landing the role.

Speaking to Teen Vogue, he said: "I auditioned for Joe for season 1, and then I auditioned for Forty for season 2, and now, third time’s the charm, I got Theo in season 3.

"So my relationship with the show goes way back, and I actually went to college with Elizabeth Lail, who played Guinevere Beck in the first season. So I’d seen the first few episodes, but it wasn’t until I got the audition for the third season that I went back and was like okay, let me watch the second season and get the tone of the show."

He continued: "I wound up bingeing the entire second season in two and a half days, which I’ve never done with another show I’ve auditioned for. I feel very lucky to be part of the third season, I actually became a huge fan of the show when I was auditioning, so it worked out."
