Tilly Keeper and Charlotte Ritchie head a Brit-centric cast in the upcoming season of Penn Badgley thriller, You.

Season four of Netflix thriller You, starring Penn Badgley, has dropped ahead of the start of the new series in March, and British television viewers may be familiar already with some of the cast members involved in the production. Badgley returns once more as Joe Goldberg, or should that be Professor Jonathan Moore, as the trailer reveals immediately.

Series 4 picks up after the devastating events at the end of the last season, with Joe Goldberg having moved to London to start a new life. In his monologue given in 2022’s teaser trailer for the new series, Goldberg is looking to put his previous pursuits behind in an effort to better himself.

“I’m not the lovable bookstore manager in New York, or the shop clerk in LA, or the doting husband in the suburbs, no, not anymore. Allow me to introduce myself. I’ve gone through a bit of refinement upon crossing the pond. And living in London has allowed me to bury the past, if you will. Gone are the days of unrequited love and longing.”

“This time around I’m focusing on academia and instruction while keeping my typical extracurricular activities strictly professional."

Eastenders and Ghosts actresses join You: Season 4

Joining Penn Badgley for the new season of You is former Eastenders actress Tilly Keeper and Fresh Meat/Ghosts actress Charlotte Ritchie as Lady Phoebe and Kate respectively. An early synopsis from Netflix during their TUDUM 2022 event also revealed that Ritchie’s character would be the “in” for Badgley’s character to continue his double life.

Keeper is probably best known for her stint on BBC One soap Eastenders, playing Louise Mitchell from 2016 to 2020. Some of Keeper’s best known storylines in that role included blackmailing Abi Branning over her fake pregnancy; helping her father cope with the death of his mother Peggy Mitchell and being the victim of bullying by Alexandra D'Costa.

Before joining the cast of You, Keeper’s last role was in the direct-to-dvd follow up to Ryan Reynolds’ action film R.I.P.D 2: Rise of the Damned, but will shortly be seen on the big screen as part of an ensemble cast in Marooned Awakening, which gets a limited theatrical run in February.

Charlotte Ritchie has been seen a lot more recently on our screens, as part of the cast of popular BBC comedy Ghosts since 2019, which celebrated their most recent special over Christmas 2022. Ritchie is also remembered for her role as pretentious-but-lovable (and unlucky at almost every step) Oregon Shawcross in Channel 4 comedy Fresh Meat, starring alongside Jack Whitehall, Zawe Ashton, Kimberley Nixon, Joe Thomas and Greg McHugh.

Who else is joining Tilly Keeper and Charlotte Ritchie in You: Season 4?

Keeper and Ritchie are joined by Amy-Leigh Hickman, another alumni from Eastenders (she played Linzi Bragg from 2016 to 2017), Downton Abbey actor Ed Speelers and Lukas Gage, who appeared in season one of the multi-award winning HBO show The White Lotus.

There has been no official word from Netflix, nor series creators Greg Berlanti or Sera Gamble regarding any returns from the previous three season of You, however if memories of Joe’s/Jonathan’s past do stir up the need for a flashback, perhaps we may see what ultimately happened to Joe’s son, who was left in the care of blind librarian Dante Ferguson.

All three seasons are still available for streaming on the platform if you need a reminder (or catch up immediately) on the events that led Joe to call London his home for the new season.
