While a season 4 is already confirmed, “You” confirms its great success on Netflix. Since the release of Season 3, many viewers have spotted a link between the series and WandaVision, Gilmore Girls and other fictions.
The success of Joe’s adventures, serial killer in his spare time, continues to enthrall the crowds. In the United States, season 3 of You has been viewed by over 111 million people, rising to the number one spot in the most popular series across the Atlantic – ahead of Bridgerton and Squid Game. Since it was put online on October 15, fiction has also been talked about for its connection with other popular series, such as WandaVision, Gilmore Girls or Pretty Little Liars.
On the Web, some observant viewers have already spotted these links. This is not a common character or a hidden wink, but a question of decor. The bakery opened by Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), A Fresh Tart – pun for A fresh start, a new start in French – is none other than the same establishment visible in the series Gilmore Girls, Williams Hardware, owned by Luke Danes (Scott Patterson).
This decor can be found on French Street at Warner Bros. Studios, a street inspired by European architecture. Many film and series crews – like La La Land or Pretty Little Liars – go there to shoot their scenes outdoors.
Another familiar setting is that of the house of Dante Ferguson (Ben Mehl) which also appears in the last episode of WandaVision. When Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) returns to WestView and finds that the building she shared with Vision (Paul Bettany) is gone, a shot shows Dante’s house in the background. For tourists and the more curious, tours are organized to discover the studios and these sets. More information on the official website of the Warner Bros.
The next season of You, which should land on Netflix in 2022, promises to be particularly different as announced by Penn Badgley. Joe’s arrival in Paris could take the series to other settings. “Each season of the series takes place in a new place […] I would love to have a European season, explains showrunner Sera Gamble. 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 we go beyond the borders of the United States. “
