Joe (Penn Badgley) isn’t quite finished with us yet it seems.
Now as the internet races to hype up season 4, let’s not forget that season 3’s body isn’t even cold yet – and it’s well worth a guilty, twisted-pleasure-type of watch.
In season 3, Joe and Love are married and raising their baby. They’ve moved to a balmy enclave in California, surrounded by defining characters of the 2020’s – namely tech entrepreneurs, ‘judgemental mommy bloggers and Insta-famous biohackers,” as Deadline expresses well.
But of course in Joe’s twisted world of baseball caps and l0ve-addiction, there’s always a new gazelle to be hunted. Which creep can blame Joe’s dark game? When your wife is too well versed in the tricks of a sly fox, it’s not really much of a game anymore at all.
Cue the woman next door – and I’ll leave things there for you to creak the door open into season 3.
However, if you’ve already binged season 3 and are ready to barrel down the door into the fourth addition of You, here’s a glimpse as to what can be expected.
It’s going to explore new dark facets of love.
According to creator Sera Gamble, “the whole You team is excited to explore new, dark facets of love in season 4.” How much darker can it possibly get? Well, it seems that the future seasons will be the proof in Joe’s pudding, as the show is also expected to continue for even more seasons after the fourth.
“I never like to jinx things by being too specific one way or the other,” she said. “I will say that we have a lot of stories still to tell. I am not scared at all of saying that we definitely could follow Joe for several more seasons,” said Gamble.
In light of not issuing spoilers for season 3, the cast of season 4 is dependent on who manages to make it out of the recent addition of You alive.
Still running along the parameter’s of the book series by Caroline Kepnes’, the fourth season will likely draw inspiration from her fourth book. However, the book is not yet finished, so the plot is as mysterious as Joe’s mind at this point.
A release date has not yet been confirmed. However, according to PopBuzz, if the show begins production soon, ” you could expect a potential late 2022 release date for season 4.”
