You Season 4 Cast Guide: Who’s Who in the Whodunit?

“You” is a psychological thriller TV series on Netflix that premiered in 2018. The show is based on the novel of the same name by Caroline Kepnes. It follows the story of a charming yet disturbed man named Joe Goldberg (played by Penn Badgley), who becomes obsessed with a woman named Beck (played by Elizabeth Lail).

Throughout the series, Joe’s obsession with Beck becomes increasingly intense, and he goes to extreme lengths to insert himself into her life, including stalking her and manipulating those around her. As the show progresses, we see the dark and twisted nature of Joe’s character, as well as the impact his actions have on those around him.

The show has been praised for its intense plot, strong performances, and exploration of complex themes such as love, obsession, and mental illness. It has also been criticized for romanticizing the behavior of the show’s protagonist, who is a dangerous and manipulative individual.

Season 4 turns the tables, embroiling Joe in a murder mystery in London as he sets out to discover the identity of the ‘Eat the Rich’ killer taking out his new circle of wealthy friends one by one.

Twists and turns abound, leading up to a spectacular finale as the identity of the killer is finally revealed.
