After a bloody season 3 of You for Joe, the psychopath played by Penn Badgley finds himself in Paris in the final. Will season 4 of the Netflix series take place in the French capital?
Season 3 of You, available on Netflix, has not been easy for its main character Joe, played by Penn Badgley. The psychopath found the perfect fit with Love (Victoria Pedretti), as crazy as he was, and moved with this soul mate and their son Henry to the upscale suburb of Madre Linda to lead “a normal life”.
Except that Joe falls back into his faults and stalks their neighbor, which will revive Love’s murderous impulses. Forced to help her other half to cover up her crimes while undergoing couples therapy, Joe feels trapped in this relationship where low blows, betrayal, violence and adultery play out.
With corpses piling up and suspicion from the neighborhood and the police awakening, Joe is forced to stop Love and kill her before she kills him, just as she did for her ex-husband. Obsessed with Marienne (Tati Gabrielle), his new flame who fled from this toxic couple, Joe left Henry to a couple of neighbors and finally flew to Paris at the end of season 3 hoping to find her .
You on Netflix: a bloody season 3 in Dexter and Desperate Housewives mode
The latest images show Joe strolling through the streets of the French capital. Will we see the professional stalker playing Emily in Paris in season 4 of You, already commissioned by Netflix? Nothing is less sure.
Joe in Paris?
Asked about this by TVLine, the showrunner of the series Sera Gamble would not be against doing a season in Europe:
“Each season of the series takes place in a new place […] I would love to have a European season. I think it would be so much fun. One of the questions we always ask ourselves in this series is: what privileged asshole environment are we going to plunge Joe into next? And there are a lot of untapped places in the world, if you go beyond the borders of the United States. “
Penn Badgley even imagined with humor what could be the fantasized life of Joe with Marienne if he finds her in Paris:
“I think if Joe finds Marienne he will live happily ever after and have beautiful babies. He will learn to speak French, he will become a writer, they will spend a lot of time along the Seine and they will send their children to school in Sweden.”
But Joe’s personality being what it is, it’s hard for the actor to conceive of a happy ending for his character: “I think Joe will stay the same. Someone so deeply ill, disturbed, traumatized and violent has a serious obstacle in front of him if he is ever to be able to heal and change. I don’t know if that is possible for anyone. ‘one that has gone this far. “
It would not be impossible for the debut of season 4 of You to take place in Paris since Joe is desperately looking for Marienne, whom he thinks is the right one. The filming having resumed in the French capital, like John Wick 4 at the moment, the team of You could put their bags there. Unless the showrunner decides to go in a whole new direction for the character of Penn Badgley.
