That plot’s only a blip on the radar compared to the season’s main drama, though, which seems to involve someone called the “Eat The Rich Killer.” I am only a casual “You” watcher at best, but I’ll admit that this name alone is enough to make me want to dive headfirst back into the show. Apparently, someone’s after Joe’s posh, croquet-playing colleagues, who he describes as “the most insane, damaged people on earth” and “privileged douchebags.” While the name of the killer implies that Joe’s wealthy new friends will be the killer’s targets, some of them seem suspicious as well. Lukas Gage, who you may recognize from “The White Lotus” and “Euphoria,” seems to play an especially sinister guy, one who casually threatens murder over dinner.
“You” definitely seems like it should’ve run out of juice by now, but the show’s writers are clever to take it in a dark academia direction this time around. “Turns out teaching’s fun and London’s not so bad,” Joe says early in the trailer, before everything inevitably falls apart. Yeah, he may have spoke too soon, as the new season seems poised to ruin his new life in the most unhinged way possible (again).
“You” season 4, part 1 hits Netflix on February 9, 2023. Part 2 will arive on March 9, 2023.
