Season 3 had a fiery finale – literally – and it left on somewhat of a cliffhanger, making fans all the more excited for Season 4. Part 1 has dropped, but what’s in store for the upcoming Part 2? And who is Joe Goldberg’s next victim?

You Season 4 release date: When is it coming out?

Like other Netflix shows, You Season 4 will be split into two parts: Part 1 came out on February 9, 2023, and Part 2 will come out on March 9, 2023.

Both parts will have five episodes each.

This announcement was made by the You Twitter account, along with a poster that depicts Joe lurking in the centre of London.

You Season 4 trailer: Is there a trailer?

Yes, there is a trailer for You Season 4 Parts 1 and 2, and you can watch them below:

The Part 1 trailer – set to a cover of “I Ran” shows the main plot events of the season, some of which we’ve seen before, and some of which are new, which we’ll get into further down in this article.

Part 2 shows what the fallout of Part 1 will be, as well as the danger that’s still to come. Along with that, there’s a very familiar face that appears at the end of the trailer.

And, of course, both trailers are narrated by the ever-so-constant Joe inner-monologue.

You Season 4 cast: Who is starring in the next season?

You tends to bring in a whole new cast every season, barring the main characters themselves.

Penn Badgley will obviously be returning as the creepy killer Joe Goldberg, and the recent object of his affections Marienne, played by Tati Gabrielle, has also come back after appearing in Season 3.

But it seems like Joe has a new obsession, who is Kate, played by Charlotte Ritchie. Kate is an art gallery director who tends to be suspicious of others.

You Season 4 plot: What will happen next season?

The trailer managed to give a lot of details about the show’s upcoming plot, but we can expect there to be a few twists and turns along the way.

You Season 3 ended with the death of Joe’s equally murderous wife, Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), before he faked his own death and ran away to Paris to follow his most recent obsession, Marienne. She herself had ran there with her daughter to escape both him and her recently deceased ex-husband – who Joe, of course, had stabbed to death.

Going by the fake name Nick, Joe vows to find Marienne – and as shown by the trailer, in which he literally chases her down, he does – though only a slight portion of the show takes place in Paris, with a lot of filming happening at the Royal Holloway, University of London. Joe is now a professor of Literature there, Professor Jonathan Moore to be exact.

Now, usually, the seasons follow Joe in a state of crisis, being fed up with his current situation. That is until he meets a new woman, whom he immediately becomes obsessed with, and begins wreaking havoc on her life, all while critiquing the society that surrounds him. Each season has tweaked this formula somewhat in order to keep the show exciting.

This time, he’s still surrounded by “a circle of privileged douchebags” but when these characters start dropping like flies, the killer becomes somewhat of an icon, called the “Eat-The-Rich Killer.” Whether or not this killer is Joe hasn’t been revealed yet, but one things for certain: Someone else is stalking him.

According to star Penn Badgley, this season is quite different, not just in plot details but also in the series’ entire format. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Badgley said: “The tone is similar but it’s shifting in that there is a different format. We’re using a different format.”

He continued: “It’s almost like we’re shifting the genre slightly. And I think it works.”
