After going into self-imposed "exile" in You's Season 3 finale, Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) is reinventing himself as a London Boy in Season 4 and now we finally know when we'll meet the rebrand.
As revealed during Tudum: A Netflix Global Fan Event, the thriller returns in 2023. But there's a twist: The new season is split into two parts and it's all about a murder mystery. Thankfully, though, you won't be waiting too long to find out whodunit. Part 1 premieres Feb. 10 2023, followed by Part 2 on March 10 2023.
Last time we checked in with the internet's favourite murderous stalker, Joe had killed his wife, Love (Victoria Pedretti), burned down their to home to fake his death, given up their son for adoption and then fled to France to find Marienne (Tati Gabrielle). But in Season 4, we'll reunite with Joe, who is now living in London as a college professor named Jonathan Moore.
"I'm not the lovable bookstore manager in New York, or the shop clerk in LA, or the doting husband in the suburbs now. Not anymore," Joe says in the cast reveal video. "Allow me to reintroduce myself: I've gone through a bit of refinement upon crossing the pond. And living in London has allowed me to bury the past, if you will." According to our curly-haired killer, gone are the days of unrequited love and longing. "No, this time around, I'm focusing on academia and instruction, while keeping my typical extracurricular activities strictly professional," he says.
A bonus? Joe isn't the only one taking on a new job in Season 4. Badgley, who portrays him, is making his directorial debut this season, too.
"With friends in high places, there always come others attempting to climb that social ladder", says Joe. "So they end up falling or shall I say, pushed to their social deaths. The question is, by whom?" You'll have to tune in come February to find out.
