Now that we know that Netflix has already renewed You for Season 4, the biggest questions fans have is, "When will it be released on Netflix?". At the time of this writing, Netflix hasn't announced an official release date for You Season 4, which isn't surprising because Season 3 just arrived last October. For most Netflix original series, it will take at least 12 months to produce it, but in recent years, numerous productions have been delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

YouWriters already shared the news that Lukas Gage is joining the cast of You Season 4. According to Deadline, Gage will play "an ex-pat American, the youngest son of a wealthy East-Coast magnate".

As an entrepreneur who will do anything to prove himself, "he's famous for spectacularly failing to meet the standards of his successful, venerable family. An entrepreneur and a gambler, Adam is a warm and funny party host and fast friend. But underneath, Adam is hiding a trove of secrets and papering over problems with heavy self-medication," the description reads. "Does he love his wealthy, titled girlfriend, or is he using her? There's no doubt he's manipulating his friends".

She will play Kate, who's described to be a "smart, independent, suspicious, misses nothing. She is fiercely loyal to her friends, a brick wall to everyone else. The daughter of a chaotic, bohemian single mother, Kate worked hard to create the life she now leads. She’s an art gallery director whose job means managing tempestuous artists. Kate tends to be 'the adult in the room,' and has embraced the moniker of 'icy bitch.' She’s especially protective of best friend Lady Phoebe, a sweet and trusting person whose extreme wealth and fame tend to attract opportunists. Kate prefers “arrangements” to love, which is why she dates fun but self-centered partier Malcolm. When Malcolm invites Joe (Badgley), an American outsider of no apparent means, into their privileged world, Kate not only immediately dislikes him, she strongly suspects something about the man is not what he seems."
