Netflix fans will be able to enjoy the show’s upcoming season 4 a little earlier than expected, but it’s actually quite a bit.
The fourth season of the psychological thriller from Netflix. You just got a little push on the release date. Since the season itself is divided into 2 parts, fans will now get the first half a little earlier than expected. But Part 2 won’t be that far behind.
In this case, “slightly earlier” means exactly that, since the season will now be released literally a day earlier than the planned release date. After a recent rather confusing teaser for Youseems like oddities of this kind are the name of the game. Maybe to confuse fans a bit is part of the marketing for the upcoming sequel to this dark series. But at the very least, they speak loudly and clearly about the premiere.
Netflix has shared the news about its official twitter account, posting a picture of Joe Goldberg from Penn Badgley in a blurry but perfectly obvious image of London. As if the image wasn’t simple enough, the headline reads “London Calling” along with new release dates for parts 1 and 2. For those unfamiliar with You is unlikely to have a strong reaction to the image. But fans of the series will definitely be interested in a new setting after 3 seasons, which are set in the United States.
You Badgley plays Joe Goldberg, who is either a bookstore manager who turns out to be a serial killer or a serial killer who turns out to be a bookstore manager. While living in New York, he falls in love with the aspiring writer Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail) and develops a strong and toxic obsession with her. This manifests itself in stalking, as he uses social media and other methods to not only spy on her, but to exclude her friends and other connections from the equation. Naturally, this does not go smoothly.
Throughout the series, Joe travels across the country to escape his past, and at one point even changes his name. Seasons 2 and 3 saw him in a relationship with another woman, talented chef Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), who harbors some dark secrets and ends up flipping the script on Jo’s manipulative tendencies. The show itself revels in the themes of toxic masculinity and the #MeToo movement, even using the movement itself as a marketing stimulus when You premiered in 2018. So, given the state of things to this day, it looks like it will still be relevant.
You is one of those shows that keeps viewers coming back for more, thanks to its superb performance and painfully fascinating insight into the minds of manipulative and obsessive people like Joe. Just because he’s a serial killer doesn’t mean his mindset is that far removed from the mindset of the average people everyone sees every day. Thinking about it is sobering, and that’s just one of the reasons why it’s so addictive. It is probably good that in this case it was divided into two parts.
You The first part of season 4 will premiere on February 9, 2023 on Netflix, and the second part on March 9.
