You’s Season 4 Trailer Reveals How The Show Has Changed
Throughout You seasons 1 to 3, Joe has been the wolf prowling his prey. You Season 1 features Joe pining over Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail) and manipulating her life to lead to him. IN You season 2, Joe does the same to Love Quinn (unaware that she did the same to him), but the rose-colored glasses break when Joe realizes that Love shares his murderous tendencies.

Why You season 4 changes are so good for the show
