Penn Badgley Is a ‘Sh*tty Sherlock’ in New ‘You’ Season 4 Trailer

Penn Badgley returns as Joe Goldberg, new life in tow, in a just-released trailer for the upcoming fourth season of the Netflix hit You.

While Joe, now in London, appears to still be wrestling with the persistently life-complicating demons of his past, he’s also experiencing a bit of a flip in that a wealthy-targeting killer is seemingly interested in taking him down. Through text messages, we see that Badgley’s character is indeed being followed by someone, perhaps the killer themselves.

At one point in the trailer, available in full up top, another character urges Joe to “stop playing shitty Sherlock” in response to the string of killings.

The first half of You Season 4 hits Netflix on Feb. 9, followed by the second half on March 9. Among those joining Badgley in the Season 4 ensemble are Tati Gabrielle, Charlotte Ritchie, Lukas Gage, and Ed Speleers. To help pass the time, impatient fans get an even closer look at what lies ahead for the You universe via a selection of newly unveiled production stills below.

You, based on the book series (including the upcoming For You and Only You) by author Caroline Kepnes, concluded its third season back in 2021. The following year, Badgley and co-star Victoria Pedretti both received nominations at the Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards. Pedretti also received a Best Villain nod at that year’s MTV Movie and TV Awards, ultimately losing to Colin Farrell’s Penguin from The Batman.
