You Season 3 gave fans of the Netflix series plenty of shocking moments, tragic ends, and really funny commentary on modern society. It also gave us a ton of unanswered questions. So, you can imagine our excitement when You was renewed for Season 4 not too long after Season 3 became available on Netflix. Now, we just have to hold our breath until we hear Joe (Penn Badgley) say “Hello, you” on You Season 4.
The new episodes could be anywhere from several months to a year away, but we know a few details about the upcoming season, including the new cast. Let’s dive into some of the quick things we know about You Season 4.
You Season 4 Began Filming In March 2022
The You production team took to social media to announce that You had begun filming. On the You Twitter page, a picture of a slate was shown with fake blood and You 4 written on it. It also revealed that John Scott was directing this episode. This picture was posted on March 22, and we aren’t sure if this was the first day of production, but it’s likely around the time filming officially began on You Season 4.
On the same You Instagram page, a picture of star Penn Badgley was posted in November 2020 to show that filming had started for Season 3. In April 2021, the same Instagram page marked the end of filming for Season 3. This meant it took roughly five months to film You Season 3. If this pattern continues, You Season 4 should finish filming in August. However, You Season 3 filmed during a critical time of the COVID pandemic, so it may have experienced some production delays.
Additionally, the team could have also had various breaks for holidays. Therefore, it may not take as long for filming on You Season 4, but if it does, the series may also have a similar release schedule. Netflix released You Season 3 in October, with a You Season 3 release date announcement happening in August 2021. This was about six months after filming ended, which means we may not see You Season 4 until early 2023 or in the latter half of 2022–likely November or December.
You Season 4 Takes Place In Europe
The You Season 3 ending showed Joe in Paris, seemingly on a quest to find Marienne (new cast addition Tati Gabrielle). However, Paris was likely only the first stop on Joe’s European trip. The You Twitter feed posted a photo confirming that filming would take place in London. In October 2021, You showrunner Sera Gamble teased to Vulture some of the things that fans could expect to see in You Season 4, including why the writers wanted it to take place in Europe:
Here’s the thing: Everyone was really excited to leave Joe smack-dab in the middle of Europe, right? He was chasing somebody who had disappeared into thin air, whom we have no reason to believe will be happy to see him again. That’s a really good place to start. We are still in the middle of a pandemic, and the rules of where you can go and how to get there change every day. So I’m being cagier than usual about promising what the direction will be, but I will say that we’re really excited about the idea of putting him in an environment that is different than everywhere he’s been, and definitely different from Madre Linda.
You Season 4’s Cast Includes Lukas Gage And Charlotte Ritchie
Like the You Season 3 cast, the new season has a lot of new characters. Streaming service, Charlotte Ritchie, who starred in the original Ghosts series and Fresh Meat, plays a critical role in You’s new season. According to Deadline, she plays a character called Kate, an art director who’s described as “icy” and immediately doesn’t trust Joe.
Lukas Gage also has a series regular role as Adam. Deadline describes the character as someone who doesn’t quite live up to his wealthy family’s standards. He’s also a fan of gambling, drugs, and partying. He’s an entrepreneur who takes big risks that might not lead to big rewards. Lukas Gage recently appeared on Euphoria and The White Lotus.
According to Deadline, You has 11 actors in recurring roles, and there will be at least six series regulars. In addition to Gage and Ritchie, Tilly Keeper, Amy Leigh Hickman, and Ed Speleers are some of the other series regulars.
The eleven recurring actors are Brad Alexander, Niccy Lin, Aidan Cheng, Stephen Hagan, Ben Wiggins, Eve Austin, Ozioma Whenu, Dario Coates, Sean Pertwee, Alison Pargeter, and Adam James.
Deadline also reveals a little about each character playing movies. Keeper plays Lady Phoebe, the girlfriend of Adam and Kate’s best friend.
Just Jared captured some scenes of You Season 4 filming, and these photos show that Adam and Lady Phoebe are a couple who are a bit glamorous.
