Netflix has been awash with true-crime documentaries about serial killers, but everyone’s favorite fictional Netflix serial killer will soon come back in You. That’s right, Killer Joe is up to no good again, and he’s about to devour your soul in this Season 4 poster, which has even left star Penn Badgley feeling “icky.”
Previously on You, we saw Joe’s actions skew closely to the Caroline Kepnes source material while he stalked and killed Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Mail) and a few of her friends in NYC. He later moved to Los Angeles and fell in love with Love (Victoria Pedretti), but that relationship took a turn when she turned out to be a killer, too. They got married, moved to suburbia, had a kid, and then they came to mutually-intended fatal blows with Love losing that fight. Joe then headed to Paris while seeking Marienne (Tati Gabrielle), but we can assume that this didn’t go well because Season 4 picks up with London Joe. He’s now known as Professor Jonathan Moore.
In the below teaser, we get to see his bearded doom emerge: “I’ve gone through a bit of refinement upon crossing the pond.”
Season 4 will be split into two parts. The first will arrive on Feb. 10, and the second batch will follow on March 10. Lucky Londoners will be able to catch the episodes a day earlier than their Yank counterparts.
Emotional baggage for Jonathan Moore is waiting at the claim. Part 1 lands early in London on February 9 and Part 2 follows on March 9. Only on @netflix. pic.twitter.com/0jZyiriKtd

We haven’t seen a full trailer yet, but it shouldn’t be much longer for a wait. Heck, we’ll possibly see two trailers.
As far as the cast goes, Tati Gabrielle will be back in some capacity as Marienne. New cast members include Charlotte Ritchie, who will portray Kate, who’s either a love interest or a rival, or maybe both. Other newcomers include Tilly Keeper, Ed Speleers, Amy Leigh Hickman, Ben Wiggins, Eve Austin, Ozioma Whenu, Dario Coates, Niccy Lin, Aidan Cheng, Brad Alexander, Alison Pargeter, Adam James, and Stephen Hagan. Who will Joe stalk the most out of this group? Everyone’s a suspect, but especially Joe.
In the meantime, it’s worth remembering that Badgley felt slightly uneasy after the show jumped from Lifetime to Netflix and immediately flourished. This resulted in a flood of social media thirst for Joe, which was awkward for Badgley, but he has still embraced the role through Joe’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith era. He should have a jolly old time in London, too. Exactly how Joe convinced everyone that he’s professor material is anyone’s guess, but at least he gets to play with books again.
You returns on February 9/10 on Netflix, and you can relive the first three seasons now.
