Neighbors, I have some news: You is coming back for a fourth season.
Yes, that’s right: Ahead of the highly anticipated third season premiere of You (on October 15), Netflix announced the show has been renewed for another chapter. Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) isn’t going anywhere any time soon, people.
Here’s what we know about You season four:
It’s happening. Netflix announced the news on Wednesday, October 13, with a creepy teaser.
The cast: Netflix says this will be revealed at a later date. However, from this teaser, it’s safe to assume Joe Goldberg (Badgley) will be returning.
Behind the scenes: Sera Gamble will stay on as showrunner; she’s executive-producing alongside Greg Berlanti, who’s written and produced on You since its launch on Lifetime in 2018.
What’s it about? Unclear. We need to watch season three first! However, Netflix does say season four will be based on the novels You and Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes.
“Reading Caroline’s novel, Greg and I were instantly obsessed with Joe Goldberg and his twisted world view,” Gamble said in a statement. “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 four.”
Will Cardi B guest-star? The rapper is a huge fan of the show and its star, Penn Badgley, and the love goes both ways. After the two had an adorable interaction on Twitter, someone started a Change.org petition to get the Hustlers star to appear in the next season of the creepy hit, and Badgley finally addressed the rumors in October, telling Jimmy Kimmel, “I can’t say because I don’t know. I actually don’t know. I’m not being coy.” Joe Goldberg not being coy? Suuuuuure.
And here’s an official synopsis of season three, so you know what you’re in for: “Joe and Love, now married and raising their baby, have moved to the balmy Northern California enclave of Madre Linda, where they’re surrounded by privileged tech entrepreneurs, judgmental mommy bloggers, and Insta-famous biohackers. Joe is committed to his new role as a husband and dad but fears Love’s lethal impulsiveness. And then there’s his heart. Could the woman he’s been searching for all this time live right next door? Breaking out of a cage in a basement is one thing. But the prison of a picture-perfect marriage to a woman who’s wise to your tricks? Well, that’ll prove a much more complicated escape.”
