You Season 4 Part 1: When will it premiere on Netflix?
We are aware that Jonathan Moore is capable of anything, so it will be fascinating to see how the upcoming season handles him. Now the wait is almost over, and the countdown has begun as You Season 4 will return to your screens in a few weeks. As such, the season is slated to be split into two parts, with the first part set to premiere on Thursday, February 9, 2023, and the second part on Thursday, March 9, 2023, respectively.
Moreover, if we take most of the Netflix series into consideration with a bit of speculation, then the new series, You Season 4, will have the same premiere time as other shows on the streaming service, which is 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET). The official Twitter handle of Netflix also confirmed the news among its followers with a brand new poster, quoting, “There’s an imposter among us.” Take a look at the announcement below:

You Season 4: What to expect in the new season?
According to Netflix, You Season 4 follows after going into self-imposed “exile” in the You 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. Last time we checked in with the internet’s favorite murderous stalker, Joe had killed his wife, Love (Victoria Pedretti), burned down their home to fake his death (as Taylor Swift’s “Exile” played), 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.
“Reading Caroline’s novel, Greg and I were instantly obsessed with Joe Goldberg and his twisted worldview. 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. 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?” With this new life comes a new crew of posh friends who can be potential victims, including fiercely loyal art gallery director Kate (Charlotte Ritchie), outspoken literature major Nadia (Amy Leigh Hickman), irreverent author Rhys (Ed Speleers), wild aristocratic socialite Phoebe (Tilly Keeper) and her boyfriend Adam (Lukas Gage), entrepreneur Sophie (Niccy Lin) and her introverted author brother Simon (Aidan Cheng), uber-privileged Oxford grad Gemma (Eve Austin), potty-mouthed former sportsman Connie (Dario Coates) and Nigerian princess/cryptocurrency aficionado Blessing (Ozioma Whenu).

You Season 4 Episodes and Streaming Options
The new season is reported to consist of 10 episodes and will be split into two halves. The episodes are estimated to have an average runtime of roughly 41 to 60 minutes, just like the prior seasons. The show will ultimately be what the contestants intend to convey to the audience. As of January 10, 2023, Netflix has not revealed the exact episode titles or synopsis, which will be disclosed as the premiere date approaches. So, we would advise fans to be patient while waiting for these updates, which will be issued in the coming weeks.
When You Season 4 draws close to its release date, the series will be available exclusively on Netflix, with other series of the same genre also accessible on the streaming platform with a range of membership options. The video quality and the number of screens you can use to stream Netflix simultaneously depend on the package you choose. The basic membership starts at $9.99/month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49/month. You may play mobile games and stream movies and TV shows at no additional cost with any of their services.

You Season 4 Official Trailer
The first jam-packed trailer of 2:47 minutes for You Season 4 Part 1 is officially out now, and it offers us a better picture of what Penn Badgley’s broken-hearted (and now hirsute) romantic is doing in London, aside from teaching at a university and eluding his past. Given that the “circle of wealthy douchebags” he has befriended are the target of the “Eat the Rich Killer,” it appears that Joe is not the only contemporary Jack the Ripper in the city. Joe needs to unleash his inner Sherlock Holmes to find the killer and stop them in time to save his newfound academic life.
From murderer to an investigator? Joe obviously has the range, then. “We’re floored by the love that fans worldwide have shown our twisted little love story – thank you! You inspire us to go deeper, and also crazier every season,” showrunner Sera Gamble tells Tudum. “As you know, each season explores a new city and a new ‘you.’ Season 4, set in London, drops Joe into a very different type of thriller: a whodunit murder mystery.” Take a look at the official trailer for You Season 4 Part 1 on Netflix’s YouTube channel below:
