Joe Goldberg is back, but he’s in a new city with a new identity this time! Joe barely managed to escape from Madre Linda in You season 3, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens to him in You season 4.

The fourth season takes place in London, England. This is surprising, right? Remember, the third season ends with Joe in Paris as he searches for Marienne. So, I wonder what made him leave Paris for London. Did Marienne relocate to London? Or maybe Joe couldn’t find Marienne and gave up.

We can’t wait to find out, but what we do know is that Joe no longer goes by his real name in You season 4. Instead, he’s taken on a new alter-ego. Joe now goes by Jonathan Moore and works as a professor at a university in London. But although Joe wishes to forget about the past and live a normal life, his past comes back to haunt him once again. Joe also finds himself immersed in a friend group made up of privileged people who he absolutely can’t stand. With a killer on the loose and an anonymous texter sending him threatening messages, Joe’s chances of living a normal life are slim to none.

Are you excited to watch You season 4? If so, we must inform you of the parents guide and age rating just in case you might be thinking about watching the new season with kids.

You season 4 parents guide and age rating

Like previous seasons, You season 4 is rated TV-MA. This means it’s specifically designed to be watched by mature audiences only. Why is it rated TV-MA, you ask? Well, there’s strong language, sex, smoking, substances, and graphic violence. Most parents would consider all the content just listed as inappropriate for young kids to be watching. However, the new season should be okay for kids ages 17 and up. But we still recommend that parents check it out themselves first.

Given the show’s subject matter, it comes as no surprise that it’s not meant to be watched by young kids. The show is about a serial killer, and the last three seasons were full of countless murders committed by Joe and other characters. Of course, you can expect the same thing to happen in the fourth season.

However, it looks like Joe won’t be doing the killing this season since he’s trying to make a fresh start in London. Instead, a new killer is killing off people of the upper class, and Joe somehow finds himself involved. But can Joe really keep his murderous tendencies from taking over, or will he eventually slip back into his old ways? We’ll have to watch You season 4 on Netflix to find out.
