Season 3 of the popular thriller series You is available to stream on Netflix and there's a lot to unpack before Season 4 premieres. For starters, Joe and his wife Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti) are now parents. They've also relocated to a new area in Northern California, where they’re surrounded by wealthy tech entrepreneurs, pretentious mommy bloggers, and Insta-famous biohackers.
As expected, Joe's loving-husband-and-dad act gets old real quick and chaos ensues. Now, if you've already breezed through Season 3, fear not. You isn't over just yet.
When will Season 4 of 'You' be released on Netflix?
Netflix confirmed in a press release on Oct. 13, 2021, that You was renewed for a fourth season.
Season 4 of You will premiere in two parts — the first part will be released on Netflix on Feb. 9, 2023, and the second part will premiere on March 9, 2023. Netflix recently released the trailer for part one, and the internet is a buzz.
The trailer opens with Penn Badgley's Joe downing shots at the bar. He then asks himself, "Did you break my heart, Marienne" after two girls pry into his personal life. Is Joe more than a murderer? Can "heartbreak" send him down a new path, as he posits in the teaser? The past seems to follow him as new mysteries emerge and a new girl (played by Ghosts' Charlotte Ritchie) enters the scene.
What will Season 4 of 'You' be about?
Going off the show's history, it could follow the storyline of Caroline Kepnes's upcoming novel. Season 1 closely followed her storyline in You. Meanwhile, Season 2 respectively followed her storyline in Hidden Bodies.
When it came to Season 3, the Netflix original series parted ways from the book. This is because Kepnes's third book of the series (You Loved Me) was published in April 2021, and by that time, You writers had already planned out a different storyline for Season 3.
The good news is that Kepnes's fourth book in the series, For You and Only You: A Joe Goldberg Novel, is expected to become available in April 2023. There's a chance that You writers will devise their own storyline or tinker with the author's source material if Kepnes's upcoming read doesn't align with Season 3's ending.
Regardless, You creators are grateful for Kepnes and her chilling tale.
Co-creator Sera Gamble said in a statement: "Reading Caroline's novel, Greg and I were instantly obsessed with Joe Goldberg and his twisted world view. And it's been thrilling to watch Penn bring Joe to creepy yet compelling life. We're deeply grateful that Netflix has shown You such monumental support, and that people around the world have enjoyed watching Joe really get it all very wrong over the past three seasons. The whole You team is excited to explore new, dark facets of love in Season 4."
This upcoming installment will be produced by Berlanti Productions, and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television. Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein, David Madden, Gina Girolamo, John Scott, Neil Reynolds, Michael Foley, and Justin Lo will all serve as executive producers alongside Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti.
Seasons 1–3 of You are currently streaming on Netflix.
