“You” premiered on Lifetime in 2018 to a very limited audience, but has received renewed attention when it comes to Netflix. Much like its famous stalker, Netflix hasn’t abandoned the series since, opening it up to a second, third, and now fourth season. Series creators Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble shared their excitement for this next chapter in a statement, saying:
“While reading Caroline’s novel, Greg and I were instantly obsessed with Joe Goldberg and his twisted view of the world. It’s thrilling to see Penn bring Joe into a scary but fascinating life. We are deeply grateful that Netflix has shown you such a monumental support, and which people all over the world have enjoyed watching Joe go all wrong over the past 3 seasons. The entire You team are excited to explore dark new facets of love in Season 4 . “
A fourth season of “You” promises an even deeper dive into Joe’s darkness, but other than that, remains a mystery. Joe has a pretty predictable tendency to hack bodies and literally hide under beds like the monster he is, but this news comes even before the third season premiere. Before looking to his future, Joe has to go through a very complicated present. The third season picks up where the second left off: fatherhood. That’s right, serial killer Joe Goldberg and his equally insane wife Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti) are raising a child. If that isn’t enough to make you shiver, then nothing is.
Netflix hasn’t said anything about the Season 4 arrival date, but Season 3 of “You” will premiere on Netflix on October 15, 2021. You can read the official synopsis below:
In Season 3, Joe and Love, now married and raising their baby, moved to the sweet enclave of Madre Linda in Northern California, where they are surrounded by privileged tech entrepreneurs, blogging moms and famous biohackers on Insta. Joe is determined to take on his new role of husband and father, but fears Love’s deadly impulsiveness. And then there is his heart. Could the woman he’s been looking for all this time live next door? Getting out of a cage in a basement is one thing. But the prison of a perfect marriage with a woman who is wise in your turn? Well, it will be a much more complicated escape.
