at .

YOU is not coming to an end at Netflix in the near future.

Ahead of the highly-anticipated third season premiere, Netflix renewed the drama series for a fourth season.

Season three is available Friday, October 15, globally on Netflix.

Up to Their Old Tricks - YOU

It's nice to know that the future is secure. It wasn't all that long ago the first season aired on Lifetime to little fanfare, leaving us pondering the future of it.

The move to Netflix propelled it to dizzying heights across the world, and it's one of the streamer's most-watched shows.

The series is executive produced by Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti; Gamble also serves as showrunner.

Love's New Role? - YOU

Developed by Gamble & Berlanti and based on the books You and Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes, season 4 will be produced by Berlanti Productions and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television. Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein, David Madden, Gina Girolamo, John Scott, Neil Reynolds, Michael Foley, and Justin Lo also serve as executive producers.

"Reading Caroline's novel, Greg and I were instantly obsessed with Joe Goldberg and his twisted world view," said Gamble.

"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."

"The whole You team is excited to explore new, dark facets of love in season 4."

Twisted Little Love Story  - YOU Season 2 Episode 9

Based on Caroline Kepnes' best-selling novel of the same name, "What would you do for love?" Joe Goldberg is a man who will do just about anything when love is at stake.

In Season 3, Joe and Love, now married and raising their baby, have moved to the balmy Northern California enclave of Madre Linda, where they're surrounded by privileged tech entrepreneurs, judgmental mommy bloggers, and Insta-famous biohackers.

Joe is committed to his new role as a husband and dad but fears Love's lethal impulsiveness. And then there's his heart. Could the woman he's been searching for all this time live right next door? Breaking out of a cage in a basement is one thing.

But the prison of a picture-perfect marriage to a woman who's wise to your tricks? Well, that'll prove a much more complicated escape.

YOU Quotes

I realized Guinevere Beck was unspecial and mediocre. She didn't deserve you.

Love

A guy needs to protect himself. I had to make sure you're safe, and your name was a glorious place to start. Not a lot of Guinevere Becks. And there you were, every account sent to public. You want to be seen, heard, known, and of course, I obliged.
Born and raised Nantucket Island. A brother Clyde and sister Anya. Your parents really were assholes about the names. Your folks split when you were 12. Your dad dropped out of the picture.
Went to Brown where you majored in Lit. Cool. And minored in douchebags. Eh. And then on to NYC to conquer an MFA, and make your mark presumably. Now you still write, barely. Too busy living out moments you won't remember five years from now. I know this because you post about this life all the goddamn time. Candidly, it's the least appealing thing about you, Beck.
