Netflix has renewed the hit crime drama series You for a fourth season ahead of the show’s Season 3 premiere on the streamer this Friday, October 15. The show, created by showrunner Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti, is based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling book series and stars Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti.
“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. 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,” said Gamble (via Deadline). “The whole You team is excited to explore new, dark facets of love in Season 4.”
“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,” reads the official synopsis. “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.”
The series also stars Shalita Grant, Travis Van Winkle, Saffron Burrows, Tati Gabrielle, and Dylan Arnold, along with new recurring stars including Scott Speedman, Michaela McManus, Shanno Chan-Kent, Ben Mehl, Christopher O’Shea, Christopher Sean, Bryan Safi, Mackenzie Astin, Ayelet Zurer, Jack Fisher, Mauricio Lara, and Scott Michael Foster.
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 also serve as executive producers.
