If you quickly burned through seasons one to three of You, then you may be curious about the next instalment of the series...

The Netflix series will be back for series 4 in the New Year, with the first few episodes dropping on 9th February.

Now that fans have witnessed the twists and turns of the story across three series, they're wondering what direction the show will take as Joe Goldberg further indulges in his dangerous habits.

Season three saw Joe and Love Quinn-Goldberg wreak havoc on the suburban town of Madre Linda.

After 10 episodes of secrets, murder and gore; the finale saw Joe flee to Paris, however, we now new series four's filming location is London where Joe's landed a job as a professor.

The psychological thriller originated from the book series of the same name, written by Caroline Kepnes.

The dark novels, You (2014), Hidden Bodies (2016) and You Love Me (2021) served as plot inspiration to the show – with the storylines deviating more from the books as the series has continued.

Season three was the most experimental to date, as it explored new events that weren't included in Kepnes' works.

As the Netflix drama delves deeper into its own original storylines, we can't be certain how much the fourth season will draw from the novels.

However, if the show does take inspiration from the latest book – which was released in April 2021 – then it may include the following storylines...

In You Love Me, Joe relocates once again, this time to a small town in Washington, after abandoning Love and their son his murderous ways even land him in prison.

The most recent finale cancels out several of the book's plot points as (spoilers!) Joe murders his wife Love, gives up their baby and then moves to Paris!

So it looks like we're in for an unexpected ride with the next season of You...
