You are going to like this news: Netflix has renewed “You” for a fourth season ahead of Season 3’s premiere on Friday.
We’re told the casting news for Season 4 will be made available at a later date. Sorry.
The series, based on the books “You” and “Hidden Bodies” by Caroline Kepnes, follows Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), a man who will do just about anything when love is at stake. And we do mean anything. Like, murder-level anything.
In Season 3, 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, according to the Netflix logline. 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.
“You” is executive produced by Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti. Gamble is the showrunner.
“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,” Gamble said in a statement on Wednesday. “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 3 seasons. The whole ‘You’ team is excited to explore new, dark facets of love in Season 4.”
Season 4 will be produced by Berlanti Productions and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television. Berlanti, Gamble, Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein, David Madden, Gina Girolamo, John Scott, Neil Reynolds, Michael Foley and Justin Lo are executive producers.
