Netflix confirms a fourth season for 'You' even before the third season has premiered

You fans, you better be excited, because Netflix’s hit psychological thriller series is being renewed for a fourth season, even before the third season has aired.

“The whole You team is excited to explore new, dark facets of love in Season 4,” showrunner Sera Gamble said in a statement, according to a Variety report.

Casting news for the fourth season will be announced on a later date, but Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl) and Victoria Pedretti (The Haunting of Hill House) are set to return for the third season of You, which is premiering on Friday, October 15. The cast also includes Michaela McManus, Dylan Arnold, Tati Gabrielle, Shalita Grant, Travis Van Winkle, Scott Speedman, and Scott Michael Foster.

In season three, Joe and Love move into a North California suburban home with a baby added to the picture. Initially planning to start fresh and “be nice, normal neighbors next door,” the couple gets to be together for better and especially, for worse. 

Based on Caroline Kepnes’ 2014 novel of the same name, the first season of You was released in 2018 and followed the story of Joe, an ordinary-looking guy with a twisted mind. The sequel Hidden Bodies (2016) was adapted for season two, and the upcoming season three was loosely based on Kepnes’ recently released book You Love Me. – Patrick Miguel/
