You season 4 is currently filming – and this time around Joe Goldberg is wreaking havoc in London. Production is underway in the English capital and expected to wrap in July, with new characters and familiar faces alike joining the hit Netflix show.
We’ve got a round-up of all the confirmed cast members and potential plot points that might lie ahead, along with a recap of how things ended at the end of season 3 and even some quotes from series star Penn Badgley, who plays Joe. We’ve also done our best to predict when we may be able to expect a release date and a trailer. And that’s just the start, so keep scrolling to find out everything we know so far about You season 4 (be warned: there are You season 3 spoilers ahead).
You season 4 release date speculation
Filming on You season 4 began in March 2022 and production is expected to wrap in July. Season 3 premiered in October 2021, with filming wrapping in April – if a similar timeline is used for season 4, we can expect a premiere date sometime in February 2023.
You season 4 trailer: When can we expect one?
The trailer for season 3 was released around a month before the new episodes arrived on Netflix, so we’ll likely have a while to wait until we get a full-length trailer for You season 4. If your prediction of a February release date is correct, you should keep an eye out in January 2023.
You season 4 cast
Penn Badgley will return as Joe Goldberg and Tati Gabrielle is back as Marienne, the object of his obsession in season 3 – although it’s not been confirmed in what capacity her character will return.
The rest of the main cast is made up of new additions. First up is Euphoria’s Lukas Gage who plays Adam, a wealthy ex-pat American who continually fails to meet the standards of his successful family.
Feel Good star Charlotte Ritchie is Kate, an art gallery director who’s fiercely loyal and suspicious of those who aren’t her friends. Tilly Keeper is Lady Phoebe, Kate’s best friend – she’s wealthy and famous but very trusting, so she tends to attract people who take advantage of her.
Amy-Leigh Hickman is Nadia, an outspoken literature student and aspiring author who needs help covering up some past mistakes that threaten to destroy her life. And, finally, Ed Speleers is Rhys, an irreverent author with a troubled youth whose memoir propelled him into the limelight.
Additionally, Niccy Lin, Aidan Cheng, Stephen Hagan, Ben Wiggins, Eve Austin, Ozioma Whenu, Dario Coates, Sean Pertwee, Brad Alexander, Alison Pargeter, and Adam James have also been cast in recurring roles.
You season 4 plot
You season 3 had a pretty dramatic finale, to put it lightly. Joe murdered his wife, Love (Victoria Pedretti), abandoned their baby with another family, faked his own death, baked his own toe into a pie in order to pin the aforementioned death on Love, then set his house in the California suburbs on fire – which is all a bit much, even by his standards.
The last we saw of Joe, he was going by “Nick” and had just touched down in Paris in search of Marienne, who is originally from the French capital. We know that the majority of You season 4 will take place in London, with only some of the season being briefly set in Paris. No other plot details have been revealed yet, but there are certainly enough ghosts in Joe’s past at this point for him to be sufficiently haunted this season.
We also know that scenes have been shot on location at Royal Holloway, University of London, so it seems that there will be a university setting for at least some of the season. Joe (or Nick) is dressed like a professor in footage taken by students on Royal Holloway’s campus, so maybe he’s picked up a new career across the pond.
And it’s not just the location that will be different this time around. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab), Badgley said: “The tone is similar but it’s shifting in that there is a different format. We’re using a different format,” he emphasized. “It’s almost like we’re shifting the genre slightly. And I think it works.”
