You season 4 is now streaming in its entirety on Netflix, with both part 1 and part 2 now available to watch. The latest installment in the twist-filled thriller sees Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) start a new life in London under the alias Professor Jonathan Moore after the explosive events of the season 3 finale. While trying to keep a low profile, Joe finds himself falling in with a group of wealthy socialites in the English capital – right as they start being picked off, one by one, by the so-called Eat the Rich killer. 

What's more, the tables have turned on Joe – he's now the pursued rather than the pursuer, as he begins receiving anonymous messages from the murderer with threats to frame him and expose his real identity. That's just the start, with old and new faces making Joe's "European holiday" more stressful than he was anticipating, so there's a lot to unpack in the series' latest installment. That's why we've got the complete lowdown on You season 4, including reviews, exclusive insights from cast members, and everything we know about the future of the show.

Our review of You season 4 part 1 gave the season's first installment four stars, with our reviewer saying it "breathed new life" into the series. You season 4 part 2 got three stars from us, with our reviewer commenting on the "ever-ludicrous" plot that still left us wanting to come back for more.

Another big question facing us at the end of You season 4 is whether we've seen the last of Joe Goldberg. Based on the final episode, it would appear not, but the series has yet to be renewed by Netflix for a fifth season. While we wait to see if there's a fifth installment of Joe's exploits on the way, we've laid out everything we know so far about a potential You season 5.
